Incredible, how fast time passes by! Middle March the Boulevard Chanel collection will finally hit stores. As always one of the things I am looking most forward to is surely the handbags. Which exceptional pieces from the runway were the most beautiful? Which are the most amazing new colors and textures that will arrive for the classic flap and Boy bags?

One thing is for certain the new star in the long line of ironic iconic plexiglass minaudieres that has been released by Chanel is called “Evening in the street”. These colorful bags have a shape slightly reminiscent of a pavement stone and an inscription like “Ladies first”, “Votez Coco” or “Je Ne Suis Pas En Solde” (“I am not for sale”) on one side while the other reads “5×5=CC”.
They seem to come in two sizes and as expected have already been very popular with Chanel event attendees and fashion magazines. However for everyone, who is searching for a piece to love not because its in fashion but because it won’t run out of fashion any time soon there is an ultimate item of desire. Its an all black – black hardware chevron flap bag in lambskin. It’ll come in several sizes. However, I personally consider the square mini as the cutest style.
