A handbag that looks like a hula hoop might seem like a ridiculous idea to the common person, but Chanel design honcho Karl Lagerfeld, who debuted just such a bag in his spring/summer 2013 collection at Paris Fashion Week, has defended it.

“It’s for the beach” Lagerfeld explained after the show in the Grand Palais. “You need space for the beach towel, huh? And then you can put it into the sand and hang things on it.”

What do you think? Could you see yourself using this bag? Let us know in the comments below.
