For their Spring-Summer 2022 Ready-to-Wear show, CHANEL presents a brand new bag design called the CHANEL 22 Bag — aptly named for the year of its creation, and referencing the year 1922 when their second fragrance, N°22 was launched. (Remember the CHANEL 19 bag? It was released back in 2019, with its name also referring to the year it was launched.)

The CHANEL 22 bag combines simplicity and comfort. It is made to be functional and light, crafted from extremely supple yet resistant leather. It will be available in three sizes (small, medium and large) and as a backpack version.

It has a large, practical interior, and closes with a magnetic button and purse-like drawstrings. Inside, there’s a zipped pocket and a removable pouch held in place by a snap hook. It also adopts the codes of the House, including the quilted leather and metal chain interlaced with leather, and the signature “CHANEL” composed of gold or lacquered metal letters. Another nice touch is the very chic “CHANEL Paris” medallion with an openwork double C that hangs from the strap.
The Chanel 22 bag will be available in boutiques from March 2022. Visit CHANEL.COM for more.
