The posting of any Chanel collection brings a wide range of responses – joy, rage, the sounds of overcome shoppers fainting and terrified credit cards weeping. Sometimes, it also brings consternation from fans of the traditional Chanel aesthetic – where have our classics gone? What is Uncle Karl doing with our beloved brand?

For those of you who fall into that last group, Chanel Cruise 2012 Handbags should be a sight for sore eyes. Even with the addition of the Boy Chanel bags and a few new takes on the quilted flap, most of these designs are the sort of stuff that quickens the pace of a Chanel fangirl’s heart. Be careful, the pictures after the jump may cause spontaneous shopping – after all, these bags are available now at your friendly local Chanel boutique.

    I like most of these. I adore red bags, and Chanel makes gorgeous reds.

    Lovely bags, totally classics already. I love the yellow kisslock and the blue flap is just too cute.

    Mayb I’m becoming disenfranchised because I’m not really seeing anything that is catching my eye.

    I sooooo LOVE Chanel, but the classic quilted ones (the six in the middle) are the best to me. I’d take them all! They can do no wrong in my eyes. Love,…love,…love,…..

    I was not sure I would ever say this, as the Chanel bag is just different sizes of quilted flap bags with chain handles….but that red one above I pretty great. Maybe I will purchase my first Chanel.

    Love #9 (the big picture at top). It may be because I don’t follow Chanel shapes closely but I haven’t seen this version of the flap bag before and it is a little more interesting.
