Chanel’s Spring 2015 runway was the first one in a while that we weren’t huge fans of. For the first time in several season’s, the brand’s mixture of luxury and kitsch felt a little bit off; where the Chanel Graffiti Backpacks had been a deft mix of high and low, the grunge-y spring messenger bags that seemed intended as their successors reached just a little too far. And what were those bags made to look like cardigans? Now that the collection is in stores, though, some of our questions have been answered and it’s clear that there’s still plenty to like.

First of all: the weird cardigan bags are now known as the Chanel Girl Bag, and they are still weird. They will likely not be one of the more well-received of Chanel’s recent structural experiments, but hey, sometimes that’s how experiments go. On the other hand, if you ever wanted to tie a sweater together by its sleeves and wear it as a bag, you’re in luck.

The real winners of the collection are the pieces that appear to be water-colored, as well as the Classic Flaps and Boy Bags that were refreshed with chevron instead of diamond quilting for the season. Chanel is calling the former the 11.12 bag, and Kristen Stewart will be its public face.

Below, check out the full lookbook from the Chanel website, including prices where available. For more info, please contact Chanel.

Wow, okay. The Girl Bags are really, really quite bad. Not sure how those slipped through to mass production. I also think the three last ones, the washed fabric bags, are pretty terrible. I think Chanel was like “our backpacks have been a great success, let’s continue in that grungy direction” but these just look so dirty. I also am not a fan of this round of plexiglass clutches, which is probably for the better because I wouldn’t be able to afford them. I’m still not a fan of the top handled bags, but in comparison to some of the other pieces here (can’t get over those girl bags!), I’ll let it slide.

Now that I’ve gotten what I think is not working (really, really not working) out of the way, I think that the metallic python flap is extraordinary and the hand painted lambskin one that looks like newspaper is fantastic.

The black on black chevron is gorgeous. Very very tempted. The girl bags not so much.

Can’t wait to see someone wearing the girl bag. Kinda cool looking, I think.

Overall I think most of these bags are pretty horrible. Those girl bags look like something out of cheap store for teenagers. I think most of them are too masculine. Ugg, I am going to look at the Dior post and cleanse my eyes. 🙂

overall, this is probably one of the uglier collections i’ve ever seen in my life, that being said, i’m probably still going to buy #17 assuming it’s a good alternate for a duffel bag size
