Chanel bags for Cruise 2013 (2)

Back in May, the Chanel Cruise 2013 collection was shown at the magical Château de Versailles, where designer Karl Lagerfeld brought us feelings of eighteenth century opulence. The show itself was exactly the kind of visual magic that Chanel runway shows are known for, with the long line up of models overtaking the gardens of Versailles.

The collection has now made its way to the Chanel showroom in New York, and earlier this week, Vlad and I were able to take a close look at the clothing and accessories. Chanel had flown in two models who walked in the show to model looks from the collection, but naturally, I went immediately to the accessory section. The collection is full of cotton candy pastels finished with beautiful hardware and…well, see it for yourself after the jump.

Light colors that are both neutral and whimsical were shown, as well as floral and baroque details. Tiny bags in spring colors were situated among the classic bags and newer versions of recent favorites. Chanel always has a way to draw me in and remind me why its one of the most sought after luxury houses, the beauty translates flawlessly into the designs. I’m already dreaming of this collection and choosing which pieces I can add to my daily handbag repertoire. Browse our gallery for a close look at what Chanel has to offer for Cruise 2013.

    the second ones on page 5 and 7 are the ones doin it for me, ha 

    and perhaps the elongated black one with very slight mustard yellow trim is pretty pleasing too.

      Just my thought exactly, not a fan of that type of hardware.

    I love the white bag with the name and address embossed on the hardware and the little coral bag. Just reading the address makes me feel like I’m connecting with history.

    there was always something about chanel bags that i didnt like.. and i realized what it is after seeing this collection. the hardware! the vintage looking hardware on these scream perfection for me, filled in the gaps of the classic flaps which i couldnt see before. i wish i could have anyone of them on the first page or the white one on the 3rd.
