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.
