Are you part of the growing population of struggling human beings who just can't seem to keep themselves sufficiently hydrated? Like, is drinking water actually a task on your to-do list? Well, if getting up to get a glass of water is too tedious for you, then perhaps Chanel's latest lifestyle product will have you gulping down the H20 in no time.
We're talking about Chanel's ultra luxe, leather-encased flask that made its runway appearance in the Cruise 2019/2020 show. Designer water bottles aren't anything new though, as brands have been doling out their pimped out versions ever since stylish water bottles (and tumblers) have been touted as "the millennial's favorite accessory." Think designs in dreamy marble, pastel colors, and seasonal themes that have us readying our wallets every time there's a new drop.
Previously released luxury bottles include Prada's metal flask, Supreme's red bottle, Virgil Abloh's rainbow-inspired Evian collection, and Kenzo's collaboration with Hydro Flask which style mavens were spotted swinging around during Fashion Week. If you ask though, nothing compares to Chanel's Flask Bag, which not only comes with its own shiny, gold metal bottle but a leather case rendered in its iconic quilted lambskin design and caged in the classic Chanel black-and-gold chain.

Imagine swapping your clunky old metal bottle (which probably has a few dents by now) for this fabulous flask that's practically a Chanel handbag in itself. You could tote it around in the office and take it straight to the gym, and you'll never have to worry about not looking polished enough because you've got your best accesory to boot. Plus, when that moment of thirst strikes, you'd whip it out with a flourish and brandish that monogrammed cap. Just don't leave it around, lest you risk losing it. And when the sun goes down and your girls' night out begins, you'll never have to scrounge for a bottle of water again because your Chanel-approved H20 is there to save the day.
The cost of all this luxurious hydration, though? That'll be $5551 or P281,000. It's a huge price to pay for something to store your l'eau. So, the question is, would you buy it?
