When models walked the runway at Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2022 show with heart-shaped bags in varying candy-colors thrown across their bodies, fashion fans took notice. While the show as a whole was an ode to the nostalgia of the ’80s and ’90s, the bags were equally as playful and fun, but the season’s standouts were definitely heart-shaped mini bags.
This is not the first time Chanel has presented us with a heart purse. In fact, the brand first introduced the shape back in the ’90s, which makes sense why Virginie Viard included them in the collection, which is an ode to the House’s past. Brands like Louis Vuitton, Celine, and Saint Laurent are also not new to the game, but this is the first time I’ve warmed up to the idea of heart-shaped bag.
Heart Bags Are It This Season
The Chanel heart bag is one of the season’s most-wanted pieces, with waitlists rumored to have begun taking names last October. This month, the bags launched in stores, and we’ve already seen them on our favorite fashion girls both during fashion month and IRL. The Heart bag even has its own dedicated thread on tPF, with many Chanel fans unable to find one from their SA or even a reseller.
There are a few different variations, including a belt bag and a coin purse pouch, but the resounding favorite seems to be the Heart bag, which retails for $5,500. It is available in neutrals like black and white, as well as pretty colors perfect for the spring/summer season like pink and purple (the bag of my dreams!). The attention to detail on the heart bags is well noted, crafted from lambskin, with diamond quilting that sits symmetrically throughout. The finishing touch is a leather zipper pull fitted with a metallic CC heart at the end.
What do you think? Too cute or too cutesy for you?
