CHANEL GABRIELLE BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Gabrielle-Bag-Adcampaign-9

From the Reissue 2.55 to the Boy Chanel, most of Chanel’s iconic handbags are inspired by the founder Coco Chanel. It’s usually something that Coco had experienced or observed during her lifetime that brought the ideas to the table. The Boy Bag for example, was created based on Coco’s boyish attitude. And as Karl Lagerfeld said: ‘she picked this up from Boy Cape, which as the love of the love’.

The Story

The latest Chanel Gabrielle Bag is crafted to pay homage to Madame Coco. According to Karl Lagerfeld, everyone called the Chanel founder Coco, but that was not her real name. Her real name was Gabrielle and this is the perfect name for a bag that has all the codes of Chanel.

The Gabrielle Bag has been heavily advertised and even got its own space on the Chanel website. It looks like this bag is determined to become the next iconic and might even compete against the famous Boy Chanel Bag.

The Design

The Reissue 2.55 was re-made to bring the art from the past back to life. But the Gabrielle Bag is really made for the future. It’s said that the bag is inspired by Virtual Reality Goggles and vintage binocular cases that men wear at the racecourse. The last part matches perfectly to the philosophy of Coco Chanel, because the quilting on the 2.55 Bag was also inspired by quilted jackets of jockey players. Coco knew very well how to get inspiration from men’s fashion.

And there are multiple ways to carry the bag. You can sling it on your shoulder, throw it over your shoulder, wrap the chain so you can tote it or change it to a fanny pack by looping the leather fixings. The collection is truly unique because of the different shapes that are available. There is an backpack, an hobo, a tote bag and an drawstring edition.

At WWD, Karl Largerfeld said that the Gabrielle Bag is meant to be worn in many different circumstances and it’s not very feminine in the sense of being Chichi. Which brings us to the next topic.

Chanel's Gabrielle handbag ad campaign

Chanel has just broken the record and all the rules of its tradition. Pharrell Williams has been participating in an ad campaign featuring the Chanel Gabrielle Bag. He is now the first man to be seen with a Chanel bag ad in the house’s 108 year of existence.

So what does this mean? The house wants to tap into the men’s fashion market by promoting the Chanel Gabrielle Bag as a unisex bag. So what do you think about that? Put your thoughts in the comment section.

Chanel introduces a string of chic new Emojis for iPhone users

Categories:Fashion


The label’s tech advent of sorts is in line with the celebration of its new Rouge Coco gloss release earlier in the year. Inside the sticker collection, one can find a pink birthday cake, a Chanel airplane, and a series of other Chanel makeup products. The quirk-list also includes a thumbs up sign that dons a classic red nail-enamel, an adorable Chanel gift box and perfect speech balloons that read words like CUTE, OMG and PLEASE.

If like us, you too find the Chanel emojis irresistibly appealing, you could download the whole list here. After all, what better way to posh up those e-convo’s than using these chic little stickers amidst the boring ramble of words. The emoticons are currently available for download and use only on the iPhone. Looks like Android users have some waiting to do before they can finally lay their hands (well, fingers in this case) on these exciting emojis!

Fall-Winter 2017 Womens Chanel Bags

Categories:Other Brands

‘Let Chanel surprise you’ was one of the nuggets I got from Chanel’s President of Fashion, Bruno Pavlovsky, when we sat down for an exclusive interview (more on that that later) moments before Chanel’s recent Fall-Winter 2017 runway presentation in Paris’ Grand Palais last week. And can I just say, it wasn’t just surprise I felt when the show started; it was the full-on jaw-dropping what-kind-of-sorcery-is-this surprise that had my goosebumps tingling with excitement.

And as far as greatest show sets ever created, this would surely be one that gets remembered for generations to come, with Chanel doing what it always does best: presenting their RTW collections in the most theatrical of presentations. Standing almost as tall as the 147 feet glass domed ceiling, the centrepiece of the entire show was the Chanel-branded rocket which ‘lifted off’ almost 30 feet at the end of the show. There was a countdown, there was lots of smoke, there were oohs and aahs aplenty as all 2600 guests strained themselves silly to snap the best image they could on their smartphones.

IMAGES: CHANEL

Then there were the bags, and there were plenty, from the novelty to the functional. From the smallest of clutches in the shape of planets and rockets, to large everyday bags in the form of backpacks and totes, there will definitely be something for everyone as far as function/size/style are concerned. There were also familiar favourites, from the Boy Chanelgiven a sprinkling of ‘stars’ in the chevron weave to the Gabrielle in new colours, from shades of pink to iridescent hues.

On my own personal wishlist? The rocket, the oversized tote and of course, that silver backpack but because it’s way too early to tell if a) they will make it into production, or b) how much they will actually cost, this boy will just have to dream (and continue to have goosebumps) whenever he relives the moment by rewatching the show on Youtube.

Chanel’s debuts a spectacular in-house watch movement for women: the Calibre 2

Categories:Jewelry & Watches


Chanel is quickly developing their portfolio of watches and their dazzling new Première Camélia Skeleton Watch marks another feather in the maison’s cap. This is the first watch for ladies from Chanel to feature an in-house movement and the movement is being called Calibre 2. The first in-house movement from Chanel (Calibre 1) debuted in their Monsieur de Chanel watch last year.


Chanel’s Première is not a new watch at all; this model was originally launched 30 years ago. The new version features the same octagonal shape that’s inspired by the brand’s own No. 5 perfume bottle. The watch is available in a version with 104 brilliant-cut diamonds and 4 baguette-cut diamonds and another with 42 baguette-cut diamonds and 52 brilliant-cut diamonds. Chanel’s simple and classic aesthetic is maintained by the black satin strap and the white gold double folding buckle set with 30 brilliant-cut diamonds.

Chanel’s skeletonized Calibre 2 is a work of art in itself. The movement has been designed in a way that its bridges form the house’s emblem, the Camelia flower. After the idea was conceptualized, it was the technical team’s responsibility to bring the vision to life, which they have certainly done. The movement is manually wound with a 48 hour power reserve. Chanel has gone one step further with the baguette diamond set watch by setting the movement with diamonds too. The brilliant cut diamond case version has no diamonds on the movement, but a bit of dazzle on the watch hands instead. The baguette version will also be available with a full pave bracelet.

According to Hodinkee, prices start at €130,000 (approx. $138,000) for the brilliant-set model while the baguette-set model is to be priced at €190,000 (approx. $200,000) on a satin strap and €260,000 (approximately $276,000) with the full pavé bracelet.
