Sometimes you need exactly that: time. Time to let a bag design sit with you and your thoughts, letting you mull over your personal likes and dislikes, seeing it on other people in the real world and on social channels, and then you can make the proper decision if it works for you. The Chanel 22 bag is a bag that has taken a bit of getting used to from some, but I’ve found the version that turned me into a big fan of this bag.

The Chanel 22 is the newest big push for Chanel, a somewhat simple in theory bag, imagined by Virginie Viard, and its name refers to the year of its creation. Compared to the other bags that are cornerstones of the Chanel lineup, the 22 is quite simple in design and the least structured bag the House has designed. However, this bag is meant to be slouchy. It’s a way to show that you can casually throw this bag over your shoulder for ease of wear, a truly elevated designer touch answer to the pared-down outfits we’ve been gravitating toward in recent years.

All About Tweed

The newest Fall Winter 22 bags lineup just hit Chanel.com, and you’ll be met with bright colors, tons of tweed, quilted velvet, and more. This version of the Chanel 22 combines much of that, with a combination of bright acid tones sitting atop a more classic black tweed with white streaks throughout the body of the bag. This bag is a tribute to tweed, one of the most notable elements from the history of Chanel.

The 22 bag is quite simple, with a large opening with a zip pocket alongside the back of the bag and a removable pouch on the interior. The chain and leather strap offers that quintessential Chanel touch, and its dimensions are quite sizable at 14.8 × 16.4 × 3.1 in. The Chanel letters, in different acid tones of tweed, grabbed my attention first and made me fall for this bag.

It feels nostalgic in a way, this bag. While the 22 bag itself is very new and still looking for its footing amongst the Chanel giants, this bag throws me back to many years ago when similar design elements reigned supreme. If you are a casual dresser, with denim making a permanent place in your repertoire, a bag like this against a simple white top or blouse really stands out.

Purchase for $5,300 via Chanel.

Too much effort to promote this Chanel bag. From the initial introductory post where comments were turned off to multiple references in several other occasions – the result is almost the same : still an ugly bag – that only gets attention because of the Chanel logo.

I like the materials/fabrication. Don’t like the shape/silhouette. It still looks like a fancy trash bag.

Agree! Although that tweed version featured reminds me of a plaid school uniform skirt to me.

Yikes! I love Chanel and there is no way that I would pay $5300.00 for this monstrosity. I own many Chanel bags that I love so I hate to see something this awful!

The inspiration looks like it came from a grocery bag; it lacks creativity and style. If Chanel is going to get butt hurt over honest comments don’t slap their label on a piece of junk and call it a bag. It’s an insult to customers who are too smart to pay $5,300.00 for the “privilege of owning Chanel”, if that’s even a thing anymore.

I don’t think anyone at Chanel cares what any of these comments say…

Not true. Comments were shut down, in another Chanel PB post, after Chanel reportedly contacted PB because the reviews, on another Chanel bag, were negative.

No one will ever convince me to buy this bag. Ugliest bag in the planet. Sorry Chanel.

Lol what a delight . Looks like my daughter had arts and crafts project on old piece of fabric. More education and design ideas spreading yet creativity is lacking. This is so unimaginative especially for someone like me who appreciates design and craftsmanship. Chanel really should fire whoever coming up with these designs and take elements from era where they used to mingle with nazis. Yes that time they’re cherished designer used to be a nazi admirer . At least that time she had the guts to know what a sharp looking bag looks like !

I felt this design is sloppy, is lack of design and creativity. I don’t like the leather version, and even dislike this tweed version further. If they really want to come out 22 bags of tweed version, the bag team should ask their clothing line for help. This pattern looks cheap. And, they are asking $5300 for this???

I think the problem with this bag is that unless you see it on and the leather or material is nicely worn in, it looks kinda meh. I’ve seen it on people and it’s actually cool, this version I love!
