[Editor’s Note: Hello! This week is our annual PurseBlog Summer Break, where our team take a couple days to rest up before the season ends and fall kicks into high gear. We’ll be running an abbreviated post schedule this week, which will feature both brand new articles and a couple fan favorites from our archives.
Every season (and usually at least once between each season), Chanel releases a brand new array of products, the scope of which is matched by very few other luxury brands. Not only are there handbags (and you should definitely check out Chanel’s brand new Pre-Collection Fall 2016 handbags), but there are wallets and pouches and coin purses, as well as pieces that fall somewhere in the murky middle between bags and wallets.
When the Chanel Cruise 2017 Cuba collection debuted, I immediately started to hunt for images of the bags. The usual sites we check for photos didn’t have closeups of the accessories, and I wanted to see what Chanel did for this monumental show–the first of its kind for an international brand in Cuba.
So, you’ve got yourself some Chanel handbags, and you’ve also got some Chanel jewelry. Maybe now you’re thinking, “How can I combine those two things, and also get some home decor into the mix?” Don’t worry, Karl Lagerfeld has you covered in ways you didn’t even realize you needed until this exact moment in time.
Chanel is one of the biggest and most sought-after accessories brands in the world, and although its best known for its iconic handbags, those are only part of the story. Each season, Chanel also releases an impressive array of wallets, pouches, almost-handbags and other small leather goods, and Chanel fans go justifiably nuts for them.
The first couple days back at work from a holiday weekend are always rough, but today, we have something that may soothe your soul just a little bit: Chanel‘s new Metiers d’Art Paris in Rome 2017 bags hit stores today, and we have the collection’s lookbook, which includes nearly four dozen bag and US pricing info for all but a couple.
