The latest collection from Chanel features a collection of bags, designed by Karl Lagerfeld.

Details of this collection include mixed fabrics, colors and shapes with contrasting structure, multiple metals and adorned with jewelry and charms paying homage to the brands namesake and her preferences and superstitions.

From the strict lines in the BOY CHANEL line, a classic rectangular shape and the spirited gourmette large link chain, and identifiable signature graphic double C clasp.

The CAMERA CASE line, inspired by cases carried by photographers and reporters; first appearing in the collections of the 1980s. These bags embellished with lucky charms, a signature of the very superstitious Gabrielle Chanel, who would insert them  into her creations.

The CLASSIC HANDBAG is a Lagerfeld reinvention of the classic 2.55 handbag and includes a bag within a bag. Bags made of tweed, like the garments are a perfect matched pairing.

VANITY CASE is a charming and stylistic miniaturized version of a travel accessory including a hidden key and lock.

CHANEL’S GABRIELLE BAG, as imagined by Karl Lagerfeld bearing both the name and spirit of its eponymous brand.

Each one, another elegant, classic and timeless accessory in the CHANEL line.
