It was re-designed by Lagerfield into a mammoth hula hoop design that’s more than half as tall as the very leggy model who toted it on the ramp! Two black hoops made up the handle while the classic quilt was replaced by silver wire mesh.

The gigantic accessory is meant to be used as a beach bag, and we think that it would make quite an impression. When has a beach bag ever been hotter than a model in a swimsuit?
