The Bags To Buy From Chanel’s Cruise 2021 Collection
The hot new-season styles to look out for
In what seems to be a sign of our times, this year for the first time ever Chanel went online to present its Cruise 2020/21 collection. Which, given the fact that most of the world is still in lockdown, and with stores shut, is a smart business move. And if the current move into winter is getting you down, and a vacation seems like a distant memory, then this is just the collection for you. Evoking the spirit of the Mediterranian, the collection comprises of easy to wear, multipurpose garments like long skirts which can be transformed into strapless dresses, triangle bikinis and embroidered bandeau tops. The most notable items, however, happen to be the accessories, which include cute miniature cases for your AirPods, belt, basket and bucket bags. Already in stores and online, here are the items to look out for.
Entering the world of tech accessories this season, Chanel’s Airpods case has to be one of the most luxurious yet. Drawing influence from its iconic Classic Double Flap bag, it’s made from quilted leather and even comes complete with a rope strap and legendary “CC” logo.
Chanel’s drawstring bag might just be one of the most wearables in the whole collection and just look at the detailing! Made from smooth leather, it comes complete with a drawstring closure, a chain-link strap and chain trims. Choose from black, white or pink, though we personally want all three - please, Santa.
Another bucket bag to add to your list, this one is much more classic in style. A true wear-forever piece, it’s made from grained leather with chevron quilting. The logo drawstring closure is a unique feature of the design.
Chanel knows how to trigger our bag obsession and this belt bag is going straight to the top of our Christmas wishlist. Made to house your AirPods for easy styling, it comes in a cool monotone hue with white leather detailing that stands out against the chunky black chain strap. At $16,600, it’s not a bargain, but you sure will be the best dressed going into 2021.
Chanel’s take on the classic basket bag is undeniably chic. More durable too, it comes in a boxy shape with leather trims and a zip closure.
We love these vintage-looking miniture clasp purses! Priced between $15,300 to $17,900, each would make the ultimate cocktail bag or even to carry just the essentials on a date night.
