Chanel’s FW2015 Bags Like You’ve Never Seen Them Before

Watch the bags and shoes of Brasserie Gabrielle come to life here


When we walked onto Chanel’s Fall-Winter 2015 show-set and realised that Karl Lagerfeld had recreated a full-blown French brasserie with waiters serving breakfast, juice and coffee, we just knew that the accessories were going to blow us away. And we were right. The restaurant-themed pieces were so impressive, we wanted to leave a tip. 

Lambskin and Plexiglas clutch, $13,990

This is the bag of the season and one that all Chanel collectors — and erm, fashion plates — will covet.

Goatskin and grosgrain slingbacks, $1,080, and Plexiglas-and-strass minaudiere, $16,540

Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s favourite number was 5 because she believed it brought her good luck. Her iconic perfume was named after it, and she also presented her collections on the fifth of May.

Calfskin flapbag with stitched cutlery, $7,840

Mini cutlery embroidered on a classic flapbag = points for being so adorable and so practical. We’re in love.
