There could only be one. We assembled the bracket, you voted through four rounds, and finally, Chanel is the winner of 2014 PurseBlog March Madness, beating out Celine in the final round, plus all its previous competitors. With a bag lineup that ranges from true classics like the Classic Flap to the avant-garde beef bags of the Chanel Supermarche Spring 2014, Chanel’s audience is wide and its prestige and heritage are huge.

Here’s Lily Allen, leaving her hotel in NYC and carrying a Fendi Fur Peekaboo Bag. She’s also wearing Christian Louboutin Glitter Pigalle Pumps and a Chanel tunic, not that you’d have trouble identifying either. Lily has been in town for a while now and always seems to have a little Chanel on her person.
Here’s Khloe Kardashian, leaving LA with a Chanel Graffiti Backpack and Kim and Kourtney following behind. This bag was the marquee accessory from Chanel’s Spring 2014 runway, and we’re not at all surprised that one of the Kardashians already has it in her clutches.
Here’s UK pop star Lily Allen, carrying a blue lambskin Chanel Bowling Bag while shopping at Intermix in Soho. (I feel an urgent need to add her sweater to my closet immediately.) We’ve seen Lily carrying a lot of Chanel in the past year, and for good reason: Lily is one of Karl Lagerfeld’s special pets.
With the chill in the air beginning to dissipate ever so slightly, it’s time to turn to spring for dressing cues. With the new season comes a new color palette, one both altogether lighter and brighter than we’ve been using for the previous six months, and that surely leaves some wardrobe gaps to fill.
It seems like only yesterday that Chanel’s art school-inspired Spring 2014 collection debuted in Paris, including quilted leather portfolio’s and grungy stenciled backpacks, but now those bags have made their way to Chanel boutiques worldwide. We’ve compiled the collection below, complete with pricing information where available; even if those backpacks aren’t your thing, there’s probably something in the line that will absolutely take your breath away.
Whenever you find yourself envying the luxurious lives of celebs, just muse on this little factoid: they all hit the gym way, way more than you and I. The pressure to keep everything tight must be especially stressful when you make most of your living doing fanciful burlesque routines a la Dita Von Teese.
