Chanel Calf Hair Flap Bag

Whether you’ve been awaiting the Texas-inspired bags of the Chanel Metiers d’Art 2014 collection with rapt anticipation or wishing that they had never happened to begin with, you certainly haven’t forgotten that they exist in the six months since the collection made its much-talked-about (and somewhat controversial) Dallas debut.

Hilary Duff Chanel Boy Bag

Ok, so maybe this is not the most pressing breaking news ever, but we follow Hilary’s bag collection pretty closely and immediately knew that this Chanel bag was a brand new addition to her collection. Here’s handbag collector supreme Hilary Duff, walking down the middle of the street in West Hollywood, wearing overalls and carrying a new, cherry red Chanel Boy Bag.

Nicky Hilton Chanel Boy Brick Clutch

Here’s heiress Nicky Hilton, strolling past the abandoned Target shopping carts and graffitied brick walls of downtown Manhattan with a Chanel Boy Brick Clutch. These little bags cost nearly ten grand, and they are particularly hard to come by at retail stores, so they’re usually reserved for special events and formal occasions.

Chanel Cruise Dubai Bags

Last week, Karl Lagerfeld presented the Chanel Cruise Dubai 2014 show on The Island in Dubai. We already took a look inside Chanel Cruise Dubai from the perspective of the attendees, and now we have a closer look at the collection’s handbags and accessories.

Lily Allen Chanel Graffiti Backpack

Here’s Lily Allen, returning to London on Tuesday after attending the Met Gala in NYC Monday night, where she wore head-to-toe Chanel. Incidentally, she’s carrying a grey version of the Chanel Graffiti Backpack here with at least two Fendi Bag Bugs dangling from the zipper pull, which amounts to proof positive that Lily Allen is basically Karl Lagerfeld’s favorite person in the whole world, at this moment in time.

Goldie Hawn Chanel Chain Satchel

Here’s Goldie Hawn, out and about in LA over the weekend, sporting a look that’s very popular among wealthy ladies of leisure: Lululemon sweats and pricey designer handbags. The bag is a Chanel Paris-Edimbourg Quilted Satchel, and it’s from the brand’s Scotland-themed Metiers d’Art collection from last year.

Chanel Tribeca Film Festival Dinner Handbags

Let’s not pretend this is anything more than what it actually is: earlier this week, Karl Lagerfeld threw his Chanel Artist Dinner at Balthazar, which is something he does every year as part of the Tribeca Film Festival. At that event, a wide swath of Lagerfeld’s harem showed up, all sporting impeccable Chanel bags, which were perhaps passed out at check-in.
