Chanel is a lot of things, but first and foremost for the past few years, it's been a brand that loves a theme. When one of our editors stopped by the Chanel Fall 2015 preview recently, Chanel's unparalleled level of commitment to its aesthetic whims was on full display; although the preview was in Chanel's offices, the space looked fully like a French bistro, just as the Grand Palais in Paris had in March for the brand's runway show.
Inside, the deeply detailed bags were displayed like pastries and confections, but the wares were not nearly as sugar-sweet as the setting might imply in the hands of a less imaginative creative team. Instead, these designs are treats for grown women, sure of their style and their ability to carry off an intricately crystal-covered day bag.
Below, check out the photos we shot at the preview--are you as excited for this collection as we are?
