The Chanel Gabrielle Bag was first introduced for Spring 2017, and was created in part to target Chanel’s younger customer base. Rarely does Chanel put most of its resources for any given season towards pushing a new line, but the fanfare around the launch of the Gabrielle was impossible to ignore. The Gabrielle was designed by the late Karl Lagerfeld and was inspired by Gabrielle Chanel. The bag is said to take inspiration from virtual reality glasses, possessing an effortlessly cool, contemporary vibe.

The Gabrielle was not an instant home run with Chanel fans and received mixed reviews from our community. Many wondered if it would stick around for long. The bag did eventually pick up steam among celebrities and influencers as well as everyday handbag lovers like you and me. Though the line has been paired down a bit (older collections included a Drawstring Pouch Purse and a large shopping tote), it seems that the Gabrielle is here to stay. With its 3 year anniversary this season, there’s no better time to do a deep dive into this style.
