Debuting at the Spring-Summer 2017 Ready-to-Wear show, the Chanel GABRIELLE bag is a ‘mischievous wink to Gabrielle Chanel’. Karl Lagerfeld wanted it to have the same aesthetic and practical spirit in that blend of strength and elegance that characterises CHANEL handbags. Fitted on a rigid thermoformed base, the main body of the bag is extremely light and ultra-supple: this contrasting structure gives it perfect stability and makes finding belongings effortless. In tune with a continuing search for comfort advocated by the founder of the House, it hugs the silhouette, moving with the gait and never hindering it. Its adjustable strap comes with a double chain woven from leather and golden and silver metal. A highly original detail permitting several ways of wearing it: over the shoulder, across the body or both at the same time, with the chain going over one shoulder and then diagonally across the other. Here is your first look at the bag via a sketch by Karl Lagerfeld, himself! Also, Karl Lagerfeld has chosen Kristen Stewart, Caroline de Maigret and Pharrell Williams, all CHANEL ambassadors, along with Cara Delevingne, a friend of the House, to embody CHANEL’s GABRIELLE bag.
