For the House of Chanel, the most anticipated event of each season is the release of their handbag collection. The collection of 2019 is no different, drawing inspiration from ancient Egyptian visuals and New York’s urban landscape, featuring the intricate usage of gold and black tones and bold shapes evoking opulence and elegance. As one of the final collections imagined by the late Karl Lagerfeld, he made full usage of the team of artisans at Chanel Métier d’Art.

GABRIELLE Crocodile Black

GABRIELLE SMALL HOBO BAG
Crocodile Embossed Calfskin, Gold-Tone & Silver-Tone Metal – Black

The original was already an iconic bag on its own, making it very scarce on the market. But we feel that this new version, featuring a thick strap adorned with the design house’s name in gold, is a definite must-have for this summer’s closet. Seems like a good problem to have!
