Do we have to thank for the world title of this bag?

After the Schland chain, Schlandtasche now comes: At the World Cup final in Brazil, the Chancellor presented a new fashion accessory.

Do you remember the black-red-gold chain that Angela Merkel wore at the Chancellor duel in 2013? Even during the TV debate, the jewelry became the secret star of the evening, suddenly had its own Twitter account and got the beautiful name Schlandkette .

At the World Cup final Germany against Argentina, the Chancellor has now caused again by an accessory stir. With a bag in football form and Germany colors she was photographed in the MaracanĂ£ Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

And suddenly all talk again only about this neat designer piece, which was baptized Schlandtasche . Where can you buy them? How expensive is she? Did she even commission Angela Merkel? Was the bag the real reason that Germany ended up victorious?

The Schland bag comes from the bag label Gilson Martins, which is located in Rio de Janeiro. On the Facebook page, there is a copy that looks exactly like the Schland bag except for the color. The price is 279 Brazilian Real, which equates to 92 euros .

As Angela Merkel has done so shortly before the finals, probably a small shopping trip on the Copacabana and spontaneously in the Schlandtasche. A good decision, because who knows if we would have become world champions without the stylish bag?
