Chanel Fall 2012 Pre-Collection Handbags (3)

I feel fairly confident saying that Chanel releases more distinct accessories collection every year than any other major designer in the world. Not only does Chanel do cruise, spring, pre-fall and fall, but it also does pre-collections for both fall and spring, bringing the total number of seasonal bag deliveries to six when four is the norm. There’s always a little more Chanel in the pipeline, which is a beautiful thing.

Lately we’ve been exploring Cruise 2013, which won’t hit stores for months, but today we have some Chanel goodies that you can buy immediately – Chanel Fall 2012 Pre-Collection. It’s exactly what it sounds like; a healthy dose of handbag fun to get you through until the Fall 2012 bags come out. The line is heavy on earth tones, which weren’t present in the runway show but still make a clear reference to the natural elements that inspired the collection. On the whole, these bags have a slightly more rugged look than you might be used to from Chanel. Check them out after the jump and tell us what you think!

    Love the first one – blue with the red trim. Any ideas as to the dimension?

  • mlle p

    I need something really new from Karl – something akin to the 2005 bag from 1999.  These are ok, but nothing super special.

  • Stephanie

    OMG that yellow one

  • Lily Khaw

    love the satchel 

  • Earmuffs

    some of them of a bit tacky

  • Alexandra Davidoff

    If only Chanel could give up putting heavy chains on everything they come out with….

    • Krstbass

      :/   It wouldn’t be Chanel.

      • Alexandra Davidoff

        Exactly! But it’d be beautiful! lol

  • Sandra Rowley

    Chanel manages to put out 6 seasonal collections because they hardly ever do anything new.  It is variations of quilted chain handled bags with a inclusion of a velvet or an exotic added here and there….and most everyone swoons over them.  I want to see something new and original.

    • Alexandra Davidoff

      +1, because I share those sentiments.

  • Mzdoubler

    I love both BLUE bags

  • Rashida

    I think this collection for the most part is a hit. I do not like the fur, but I saw a lot of pieces I’d love to own!

  • AAAA

    I actually feel like it is a little late for them to jump on the satchel train.  I don’t know, I just think of them as trendsetters, not several-years-later followers.

    loving page 2 the styles here will make a bring a monotone outfit to life and give it some dimension


    wow  love the chanel 2.55 classic

  • Linhcm

    to be shocked by the first seeing, So beautiful…

    When I think of Chanel, I think of classic, elegant, timeless bags. But I have heard that the production of the classics is being limited so that more emphasis will be put on collections like this. I am not a fan. Mixing delicate lambskin with clunky chains baffles me. I cannot imagine who the target buyer for these looks is.

  • Kristine111280

    i like the yellow one.

  • Miss K

    Honestly nothing really catches my eye here. Since I’m actually in the process looking for a new Chanel bag this is a bit of a disappointment ….  I would rather spend money on one of the classic Chanel bags that I came across at  then I can save some money for another new bag ….currently torn between two at the moment >.<

  • 19yearslater

    I like the satchels. Interesting. 

  • Isabelle Xinghart

    wonder how much it cost

  • Mybagosphere

    It’s true that some of the bags are a bit tacky like the last two ones, some of them are beautiful though but I am not totally convinced with this collection of bags.

  • sandy
