We we absolutely loving the whole thing - even Rihanna's bum bag got us excited!
So, as we couldn't get our hands on any Chanel themed 'shopping centre' swag, we thought we'd give the Sam McKnight ponytail creations a bash.
How to recreate the Chanel ponytail
With strips of Chanel tweed at an all time low in Handbag HQ - where does it all go hey? Like socks in the washing machine - we tried it with a selection of ribbons.
To keep it on trend we opted for some pastel colour combinations.
Skipping on the extensions - we were trying to keep it as low maintenance as possible - we attached the ribbons with non-slip grips as well as just through the hairband of the ponytail.
Some were plaited into the hair, just like at Chanel.
The ponytail got road tested in various places and once past the initial cheerleader feeling it felt quite cool.
The biggest, brightest ribbon was the most difficult to get on board with - trying it without that was much easier going.
People will look - you have ribbons all up in your hair.
So, as long as you are happy with the youthful vibes that go hand in hand with that, and you're comfortable looking like you spent a while getting ready, give it a go.
If you try it out we'd love to see a picture - tweet us or Instagram it @handbagcom
