It’s so unfair that some of the very best accessories shows are at the end of fashion month. We’ve been waiting not-so-patiently for powerhouse handbag brands like Chanel and Louis Vuitton to give us a peek at what’s up next, and finally, all has been revealed. In the case of Chanel Fall 2013, the collection turned out to be well worth the wait, particularly if you enjoyed Spring 2013′s Lego-inspired bags.
Not only did this collection include what seemed like a zillion new iterations of the little clutch, some of which were inset with textiles that matched their attendant ensembles, but it also introduced a new mini crossbody with hardware that reflects the structure of the Lego clutch. In fact, most of the Chanel bags were small, particularly the spherical minaudieres that aped the giant globe that centered the set at the Grand Palais in Paris. The notable size exception? Portfolio-sized Chanel Boy Bags, big enough to fit a small laptop.
