Chanel fashion shows are not, by and large, elusive events. They’re some of the most well-documented happenings in fashion, with both media and attendees reporting back via traditional industry news channels and social media. That’s why it’s been so weird that we couldn’t get close-up shots of the Chanel Cruise 2016 runway bags until now.
The show itself took place on Seoul, South Korea, in early May, and since then, all we’ve seen of the collection was through traditional, straight-on runway photos, which aren’t very helpful when trying to spot the bags carried at models’ sides. Usually Chanel distributes its own detail shots to media in the days after a show, but they haven’t surfaced for Cruise.
Women’s Wear Daily did manage to get its hands on a couple Chanel Cruise 2016 accessories lookbook images for the first installment of its Best of Resort 2016 series. Below, check out some images of the collection’s intricate woven bags, floral cuffs and more.
