Karl Lagerfeld likes a theme, as well as for autumn 2018, Chanel went into the woods as well as emerged with a brand new handbag. held by scores of runway designs as well as frequently decorated with the season’s luxe-camo leaf prints, the Chanel 31 Bag appears to find in at least two sizes as well as has three bring options: as a hand-held tote, a carry carry or a folded-over clutch. There were other bags on the runway, of course, however the volume of 31 Bags suggests it’ll be a huge push for the brand come fall.
There’s been something of a pattern for handheld bags that aren’t necessarily clutches in recent seasons, mainly fueled by indie upstarts that are prominent with the street style crowd. They’re undeniably a situation of fashion over function: they evoke the exact same sense that a hold does, which is that for the carrier, an chance to look stylish as well as unbothered can outweigh the necessity of bring a bag on one’s carry in buy to have complimentary hands or balance out a heavy load.
The Chanel version includes carry straps that hide inside the bag when not in use, thankfully, however I’m still not sure the style works. I couldn’t step past the feeling that the top structure with oval handles felt inexpensive to me, perhaps like a beach bag or one of those complimentary totes they often provide out with makeup counter purchases. whatever old as well as affordable is new as well as high-end now, though, so perhaps that was the point as well as I just missed it. Either way, I’m just not digging the 31 Bag. Luckily, there were others offered to look at during the show. inspect them all out below.
