Karl Lagerfeld explains Chanel's hula-hoop beach bag

At the Chanel spring 2013 show, Karl Lagerfeld presented the hula-hoop/beach bag.
 "It's for the beach, "Lagerfeld told the Daily Telegraph post-show. "You need space for the beach towel. And then you can put it into the sand and hang things on it." Which makes sense, actually, except there are a lot of other, less expensive ways to hang your wet bathing suit at the beach. Like, on your umbrella. Or on a surfboard, if you're into that. Or on the back of your beach chair, like the rest of the world who might not have the upper body strength to tote that thing around.
