Chanel Rainbow Boy Bag

When the Chanel Cruise 2017 Cuba collection debuted, I immediately started to hunt for images of the bags. The usual sites we check for photos didn’t have closeups of the accessories, and I wanted to see what Chanel did for this monumental show–the first of its kind for an international brand in Cuba.

Chanel‘s handbag lookbooks are always fun; they usually contain 35 to 45 bags, ranging from casual looks like denim or canvas to eye-popping exotics and pieces that feature heavy beading or embroidery, all of which give Chanel fans a very good idea of the full lines they’ll find in stores.

When Chanel staged it’s Cruise 2017 show in Cuba, up-close shots of the collection’s bags and accessories weren’t readily available. I spent hours on Instagram and scouring other fashion sites to see what I could find and ended up with a good assortment of bags and the scene of the show.

The pre-holiday weekend celeb snapshot offerings are usually not the most premium selections ever, but we managed to round things out quite nicely with a double dose of Bella Hadid and a pic of Naya Rivera stocking up on bottled water.

The very wealthy are both just like us mortals and not like us at all. They’re like us in that they want to have cute stuff to take to the pool with their friends or on their next beach vacation, but they are not like us in that their next terrycloth beach set might be from Chanel.

So, you’ve got yourself some Chanel handbags, and you’ve also got some Chanel jewelry. Maybe now you’re thinking, “How can I combine those two things, and also get some home decor into the mix?” Don’t worry, Karl Lagerfeld has you covered in ways you didn’t even realize you needed until this exact moment in time.

Chanel is one of the biggest and most sought-after accessories brands in the world, and although its best known for its iconic handbags, those are only part of the story. Each season, Chanel also releases an impressive array of wallets, pouches, almost-handbags and other small leather goods, and Chanel fans go justifiably nuts for them.

When you look at celebrity snapshots as often as I do, you sometimes get the impression that you’re doing something wrong. You could be brunching better. You could experiment a lot more with your fashion choices.

The first couple days back at work from a holiday weekend are always rough, but today, we have something that may soothe your soul just a little bit: Chanel‘s new Metiers d’Art Paris in Rome 2017 bags hit stores today, and we have the collection’s lookbook, which includes nearly four dozen bag and US pricing info for all but a couple.

Most handbags, even popular ones, match to a certain kind of person with a certain kind of style. Some skew older or younger, or to creative type or those with high-powered office jobs. Bags are functional pieces of design, after all, and different design is appropriate for different people with different kinds of lives.

Chanel Cruise 2016:17 Cuba 19

Last week, right after the Met Gala, Chanel debuted its Cruise 2016/17 collection in Havana, Cuba. The controversial location was announced months ago and many awaited what Karl Lagerfeld had in store for one of the first big, public events to be held in the country since travel restrictions have loosened.

The Met Gala always swings back and forth between being the best red carpet of the year or, at least, the most interesting red carpet of the year. Every celeb you know and love is there (as well as a few you’d totally forgotten about), and as an added bonus, there’s no four-hour award show attached that you feel like have you have to sit through afterward.
