Everyone, who follows my instagram might have recognised that Chanel Salzburg has finally arrived in stores in Europe. So what better time to have a closer look at the new bags.
Today Chanel cruise Seoul, the brands latest collection, which is about to hit stores in November, has been presented at Zaha Hadid’s masterwork Dongdaemun Design Plaza. So high time to check out the handbags? What about the new cult plexiglass minaudière? Did the story of the Girl bag, you know the jacket turned bag, continue?
Surely the bags presented on a Chanel runway only make up a small portion of the huge amount of new colors and textures that will finally appear in store with a collection. And yes the runway bags aren’t really classy. Maybe not even timeless. But despite of that I always love to have a closer look at them and love to be inspired by how Chanel employed couture embroidery techniques for the design of its runway bags! So lets have a closer look at the Chanel Salzburg handbags!
Its always so exciting when a new Chanel collection hits stores. Sure some pieces have already arrived since early October but the official international launch date for Chanel cruise 2015, the Dubai show, is November 18th so its still ahead of us!!! And 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?
The show video for “Boulevard Chanel”, the brands spring 2015 collection with a feminist riot theme is online. And I can only recommend to watch the video here, its really worth it. So time for a closeup of the Boulevard Chanel bag brigate …
After Paris Dallas (Chanel pre-fall collection) gave the Chanel classics, like Boy, flap and reissue bag, a vintage cowboy makeover the supermarket collection adapts them for the ghetto kids! Something like that might be one of the first thoughts that crosses once mind when having a look at the 2 parts from the Chanel fall collection. But taking a little deeper look I have to admit that there are some really great pieces hidden in the Chanel grocery bag collection, which starts to arrive slowly in store at the moment!
Finally, I had been waiting for so long, Chanel Paris Dallas hit stores! While in Paris the collection had not arrived in store we were happy enough to spot the bright Chanel Paris Dallas window installation at the 57th Street New York flagship. As the perception differs so much between exploring a Chanel collection online or experiencing it face to face in store I simply had to walk in and have a look at the pieces. I am going to start with the handbag section and introduce my 3 favorites to you!
Although the petrol can inspired Chanel Jerrycan bag might be the most talked about piece from the Chanel cruise 2015 Dubai runway chances are that it is not the most inspiring one! A smaller, cube shaped bag with two zippers was shown in several sizes and colors. I had seen a one zipper alteration of it before on the Chanel cruise Singapore runway, but never spotted it in store.
