Chanel’s latest big push is here, and it’s, fittingly, called the 22 bag.

Last October, Chanel presented its spring 2022 collection and it felt fresh, fun and light—a much-needed distraction from the global issues our world was facing. The collection itself was inspired by the art of the fashion show, and as a whole, it exuded the fun, light side of fashion we all craved. Models were shown on the runway in fun, ’90s-inspired fashion like high-waisted swimsuits with a sporty feel, and capri pants. The models walked with intensity and a high energy that portrayed the collection’s overall feel.

As for the bags, there were many. From quirky colors to fun shapes and kitschy details like beads and pearls. But the standout was a new oversized leather carryall that read CHANEL in bold gold lettering. Shown in black, white, pink and a stunning purple that is perfect for the year. The bag is a welcome change to the of-the-moment mini and micro bags that handbag lovers have been bombarded by the last few years.

Designed by Virginie Viard, the Chanel 22 bag takes on some of the House’s most iconic codes, like quilted leather and signature chain detailing. Just like its predecessor, the Chanel 19 bag, the 22 bag’s name is rooted in numerology, created for the brand’s spring 2022 collection. The number is also symbolic to the House of Chanel because, in 1922, the house created its fragrance N°22, which is said to be a lighter variation of Chanel N°5.

The Chanel 22 bags feels effortlessly stylish, in that cool-girl way that Chanel is oh so good at creating. It’s simple, yet functional, containing elements of the past, the bag still feels modern and fresh. It is going to be THE must-have Chanel bag for 2022, with the House pushing it as their latest It-Bag. But, does it contain the elements needed to have staying power? Would you carry it?

The CHANEL 22 Bag will hit stores in March, along with the rest of Chanel S/S 2022.

The last thing I need in my life is a very expensive bottomless pit. No thank you 22 bag.

They’re pricing the bags at approx €5200 or ~$6000. For that much, where’s the creativity? where’s the variety? It’s a simple tote that’s better at the $3000 range if I’m generous

I don’t think this is attractive. The shape looks like a bag I use to line my kitchen garbage.

I thought she was carrying the dust bag in the first pic. Didn’t realize that was the actual bag

Oof. I’m sure it’ll have its 15 minutes on Insta, but it reminds me of the nylon drawstring sacks that I carry my gym shoes in. On a petty note, I hate that the front has CHANEL written across it instead of a slightly more discreet CC Logo.

I agree! The CHANEL written in the center is 100% unnecessary, even for Chanel!

That looks like a trash bag. Everything would just settle at the bottom which makes it not functional. Hard pass.

I’m always excited about a new Chanel launch. Then, when I see it (like the 22) I’m underwhelmed & disappointed. It looks hastily made & unimaginative.

I see a future for this bag…under the title, “Just because it’s designer doesn’t mean it’s good.”

Doesn’t look like it will hold up well over time because of the shapeless leather. For all its giant size it doesn’t look very practical to reach in and out of either with the cinched top. And in terms of aesthetics I feel the quilting should pop more. But just because it’s a chanel bag big enough for work I feel it will have some fans

This seems like an extension of their ethos on the Advent calendar. The discussion seems to have been – Ooo, we have a lot of large dust bags. Maybe we should sell them as bags!

Here’s some more 22 numerology: “22 skidoo”, meaning to beat a hasty retreat — which is what I’ll be doing if approached about buying this bag.

I am a fan of Chanel but I agree with everyone that this is incredibly underwhelming and $6000.00! Chanel, are you kidding me? I will stick to the Deauville thank you very much!

I was thinking more my rollup sleeping bag. Hell why didn’t they at least include one of those? Would have made a little more sense at least.

No one what Chanel is thinking with this hideous, cheap looking trash sack.
