Some bags pull at your heartstrings and you would have never expected it, and that is precisely what happened to me when it came to the Chanel Heart Bags. I remember seeing this bag on the runway and knowing it would be a success but felt like it was a tad too cutesy for my personal style. Kaitlin shared these bags with you all as well and after seeing someone carry this bag, I knew I needed to see it in person. I asked the team at Chanel if they had any samples, and luckily for me, samples they had. I was able to see the various sizes of this bag and the handful of colors they offered.

Ready for whatever the equivalent of a dad joke is for a mom who runs a website on designer bags…? The heart wants what it wants.

A Detailed Look at Chanel’s SS 2022 Must-Have

I was sold. I love the playfulness of the designs plus I really love how entirely different the shape is, one that you don’t expect. Chanel adds House elements to this bag, from the classic quilting and stitching to the CC clasp closure, you immediately know this is a Chanel bag.

There are two sizes: the smaller size they call the clutch and the regular size which will fit your iPhone, which for me is a major plus on a compact bag (especially one that is a novelty shape). There is also an arm coin purse, which I was having a hard time deciding exactly where on the arm it was intended to sit. It was too large for my wrist, but a bit tight on my forearm (forearm is the intended place of wear).

What Fits?

The nice thing about the larger size is that it will fit your phone, as I shared above. I find that many smaller bags that are being released don’t have enough room for your phone, and that bothers me. I want to love the tiny bag trend, but I also really want a place for my phone to go that isn’t necessarily in my pocket. This size is available in white, black, and pink lambskin leather with overall dimensions of 6.4 × 7 × 2.5 in. There’s a front flap pocket that is secured by the CC closure and a back small open pocket that nicely fits a valet ticket (well, that was the best use I found for it). The bag is finished off with the Chanel leather and chain strap which is not adjustable but is nice and long for different styles of wear. Price is $5,550.

The smaller size features all the same design elements but also offers you a purple version, which oddly became my obsession (actually it was Millie’s too, she was hooked). This size won’t fit your phone, but it really looks nice on and its dimensions of it are ideal for the tiny bag trend, 4.7 × 5.1 × 2.1 in. Price is $3,400.

I did a quick 45 second bag review on these bags if you want to discover a bit more, and Millie even got in on it and shared her thoughts as well.

As with other highly coveted Chanel bags, these bags are nearly impossible to track down. If you talked to a sales associate, you’d find out that majority were spoken for before the bags ever arrived in store so if you want to try your luck at nabbing one now, your best bet is the resale market.

What do you think of these bags?

Call me cheap but I’d just buy this from Moschino/Love Moschino if I wanted something like this. I’m sure the leather is high quality and all, but not worth it for me, too childish.

Like the bag of not but stop all the hate. All the comments are so negative. The haters really hate. Its so nice to read articles like this but the comments are rarely about the bags. The comments are always about price and Chanel as a whole.

People are just rude lately. Check out the comments under the article about saving up for one’s first Birkin.

Anyone who’s carrying Chanel nowadays is so basic. I don’t care what shape they make their bags, it’s not a vibe. They’re so accessible everyone has one now, especially the classic ones. I’ve been saying this for yearsss but now there’s like a million YouTube videos on this as well, finally thankfully.

Can’t that be said about essentially all brands though? In any case I guess we’re all basic! 😂

Do you own any Chanel bags?

i love it. and I don’t think it’s too much for a novelty bag because “Too much for a novelty bag” makes me think of, as an example, a judith lieber hot dog minaudiere. This is a heart. It’s a pretty basic shape and very common design element. For someone who loves heart things (there are way more of us than those who LOVE all things hot dog, I’m assuming, though I could be wrong) we would get pretty frequent wear out of this. It makes me smile and it would continue to make me smile every time I wore it (but, also, it would HAVE to fit my phone).

I was lucky enough to get the largest size heart in black even though I desperately tried to get the pink one. It is a one of a kind bag and I can’t wait to wear it – it definitely is a little more trendy than classic but hey, girl has to have both to change things up a little! 🙂

Many brands offer heart-shaped bags for a fraction of the price. This is a novelty bag and impractical too.

I’m not saying this to be mean at all but this honestly reminds me of a little girls bag you find at Claire’s. So for me it is a hard no but I do think that others could probably rock this bag and elevate it.

It’s a lovely bag for a twenty year old or a tween but not sure I’d be comfortable carrying it. I prefer the wallet on the chain. Just saying.

as many have said before and I agree, these heart bags look like cheap teenage stuff found at Claire’s, slapped with Chanel logo on it. I would not buy it if it was $50. and no design/imagination whatsoever. As always, you are throwing money away for that metal logo

Got a kick out of the attribution of this article to Vlad. (Though maybe he is “sold” on this heart bag.) 😉

When I read this post I thought “Vlad really likes these bags and hopefully Megs can get him one”! Then, I watched the 45 second bag review and caught onto the joke! 😂 Although I’ve always wondered do you have connections that allows you to get highly coveted bags more easily than the general public? I hope you would since every job has its perks! If you don’t want to share that’s ok, too. 😊

Happy to share!

During the last 17 years of running this site, we’ve established relationships with most fashion brands’ PR departments. This allows us to request relevant bags and pull press samples, photograph/review them and then send them back. In this case, we worked with Chanel in their NYC corporate offices to pull the Heart Bags and sent them all back. We never get to keep the samples, except in very rare cases… but never top-end tier bags like Chanel.

Sometimes we are sent bags straight from other magazine shoots or from celebrity stylists whose clients wore those bags for an event.

My name ended as the author’s name as I started the article to include the images I edited and forgot to change the name to Megs’.

While this bag isn’t for me personally, I do love it. The whimsical design completely drew me in. I know LV also did a heart bag which I did not care for. There is just something about Chanel and that quilting. The secondhand / reseller market for this bag is INSANE and I would personally never, ever pay almost double for this bag.
