A closer look at the Chanel Salzburg handbags

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!

Whats your favorite Chanel cruise 2015 handbag?

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 little pearl clutch that was presented on the Chanel cruise 2015 Dubai runway is pure perfection. I am really a little jealous of Korean actress Jung Ryeo-Won, who was happy enough to wear it while attending the Chanel fall 2014 couture show, pics style.com

My top 3 from the Chanel grocery bag collection

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!

Let’s take a closer look at the Chanel Paris Dallas handbags!!!

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!

The all black 2.55 bag is one of my absolute favorites from Chanel Paris Dallas!

Chanel Dubai fashion show -The handbag brigade

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.
