As usual, we’re enthralled by the luxury French house’s quality handbags that never seem to go out of style. This time, Chanel’s stunning Fall-Winter 2016/17 collection returns to the familiar classics but with a unique twist that’s definitely unforgettable.
Both the classic CHANEL 11.12 and 2.55 with its quintessential quilting that’s emblematic of the House is given a stylish reinterpretation by Karl Lagerfield. What we get is a refreshing look that’s still reflective of CHANEL’s modern and sophisticated designs.
The CHANEL 11.12 with the classic CC clasp is easily the iconic bag of the House. This collection features the 11.12 covered in laser treated faded denim.
There’s also the iconic 2.55 that comes in either aged or metallic leather as well as soft overstitched beige suede split calfskin, drawing inspiration from the toiles that are used in the ateliers. The handy bag is also attached to a clip hanger with a tiny mirror, great for those last-minute touch ups and discreet vanity checks.
The all-time favourite BOY CHANEL is now given intricate embellishments and meticulous braiding details. The lacing details seen on the handbags in either leather or with tweed are reminiscent of the corsetry that cleaves the dresses and boots.
The interesting resin minaudière takes on the shape of a bobbin of golden thread, serving as a tribute to the ateliers and the intricate work needed to craft the House’s luxurious and quality bags.
We’d like to see you resist this adorably nifty case that’s meant to keep your smartphones and tablets safe. You can take your pick between different textures and designs including tweed, quilted or leathers. There’s always something for everyone.
