CHANEL ‘Art de Vivre’ Spring/Summer 2016 Handbags Collection

CHANEL has reinvented the wheel of travel with its larger-than-life interpretation of the brand’s iconic designs from its classic tweed to its signature quilting and chains. Superimposed, multiplied, enlarged or miniaturised, they delineate a new look that is both modern and versatile. The iconic 11.12 handbag adopts XXL proportions and becomes a weekend bag. Embroidered with rhinestone airplanes, Karl Lagerfeld has adapted it for travel: at the back a flat zipped pocket makes way for the telescopic handle of the “Coco Cases”, the new cabin luggage of the House.

In diamond or chevron quilted leather, in tweed, alligator or embracing the codes of the Girl bag inspired by the CHANEL jacket, these suitcases unveil a new look: the double bagging or the simplicity of layering several pieces of luggage. Travelling this easily, this lightly, with hands and arms free, fits perfectly with the philosophy of Gabrielle Chanel. In this same spirit, the weekend bags and other bowling bags in quilted fuselage-grey leather complete the line.
