For Chanel lovers, the brand’s annual Metiers d’Art collection is one of the most anticipated of the year. Metiers d’Art is the brand’s pre-fall offering, intended to demonstrate Chanel artisans’ incredible skill and craftsmanship. Each piece typically feels like a work of art in its own right, meant to dazzle and wow us with intricate details. This collection, though stunning, is exactly what we’ve come to expect from post-Lagerfeld Chanel under the direction of Virginie Viard. Beautiful pieces are mostly wearable, albeit rather small, designs.

This Métiers d’Art collection was presented at le19M, a new building in Paris, imagined by Chanel and dedicated to the workshops of the Maison’s artisans. The collection is rich in details crafted as nods to le19M’s architecture, like various embroideries and structured proportions. Overall the show and the presentation itself created a graphic vision meant to showcase the textures and precious details of the collection, all paying tribute to the exceptional artisanal heritage of Chanel.

As for the bags, this collection bets big on mini and micro bags, with teeny versions of every single Chanel favorite appearing on the runway from the Boy Bag and the 2.55 Reissue to the newest House icon, the Chanel 19. There’s even a teeny, tiny green embellished Wallet-on-Chain. Purple popped in this collection, with a standout piece being a furry purple vanity bag. As is typical from Chanel’s pre-fall offerings, there were plenty of embellishments to be had, with sequins and jewel-encrusted flap bags hand-carried by models in matching knits and cozy sweaters. Take a look below at bags from Chanel Metiers d’Art 2022.

All beautiful for sure, but it’s just deja vu with Chanel, which I supposed is why it’s a timeless brand. I am desensitized to seeing the same thing over and over again. And, as much as these RTW items are beautiful, very few of the runway pieces ever make it to boutiques now. The whole “ladies luncheon office chic dry cleaners on speed dial” is an aesthetic that left me after the pandemic hit. For me at least, I won’t go back to such formality. I am sure all of this will look stunning for those corporate power execs tho 🙂 Cute toys, not sure they should be described as “bags”.

Most of these “bags” are simply eye candy due to their impracticality.

Very expensive coin purses in a world that doesnt use coins anymore. Have to love how the size of the bag is shrinking and the price is increasing, I guess you’d call that Chaneflation? definitely meeting those profit margins.

None of these bags do anything for me. Totally bored. Miss the days when Chanel bags were actually exciting.

Hmmm, interested to see a better pic of the Boy bag with the rounded corners! The purple with the tri-compartments is nice!

That was my first impression too when the boy bag was first released but now the design is starting to grow on me. I love the limited pieces with embellishments and the rainbow one im still trying to find a good deal on.
