We can’t think of a better way to kick off the run-up to National Handbag Day (October 10!) than with a first look at a brand new Chanel collection. Chanel’s Spring 2017 bags debuted yesterday in Paris, inside a Grand Palais that Karl Lagerfeld had turned into the world’s chicest server farm. For those of you who prefer your bags more wearable than conceptual, though, you don’t have much to worry about from the theme.

Lagerfeld & Co. stuck mostly to the brand’s beloved Boy Bags, with a few tech touches here and there like color-shifting hardware and materials that somehow looked like both tweed and microchips. If you were hoping for something more literal, though, look no further than Chanel’s seasonal minaudiere: a surprisingly cute robot.

I think my wallet is safe for this season! The bag in slide 13 is cute and the robot minaudiere is adorable but not worth the close to $10K price tag it will mostly likely have. I like the concept though, I am surprised Karl is still able to come up with new themes each collection. I REALLY like what he is doing with Fendi right now!!

Love Chanel and the only Chanel bag that I love but have yet to add to my collection is the Boy. The perforated Boy above is of interest!

The boy bag in slide 10 shows how low quality Chanel has gotten. Look at the wrinkling on that side part of the bag :/

This is a runway bag. They still have time to polish final production variant.

It amazes me how ppl still buy these bags despite the low quality and hefty price tag (and I tell you I used to be a huge Chanel fans…). These days I only stick with shoes, watches and fine jewelry when it comes to Chanel…

Number 16 has to be seen in motion. The clutch has LED lights that change, as demonstrated below:

Ahhhh, there are those of us that still swoon 🙂 It’s one thing to see a picture, and quite another feeling when wearing one. Still has the pixie dust for me, and the incredible range of options each season keeps me coming back!

Omg….. So boring and looks so cheap. But no matter what it is people would spend stupid $$$ for those crap stuff just for getting attention. Terrible collection indeed.

I agree that the most of the bags dont look special. If there is no Chanel brand on it nobody will be interested:) Sorry for my English:) I am Russian:)
