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.

So… if you’ve seen on social media the last few weeks then you will (for the most part) know or have an idea that early December, I flew back early from Art Basel, in Miami because I got a magical little call that my amazing friends at Hermes Bloor St. in Toronto had something very special waiting for me.. So… I got on a flight home and went straight to the Hermes store where I would find this beauty sitting pretty! I am so excited to share my very first Hermes Kelly bag and more so, as I see it, I am so excited to share another milestone for me.. I don’t know if you remember but a couple years back I got myself my Cartier Love Bracelet as a 1 year milestone for taking my blog seriously and doing it as it’s own entity for one year.. Now I celebrate a new achievement and feeling of freedom, prosperity and especially hard-work by acquiring this new lovely piece… Not only is it this milestone, but of course a bag of this caliber has always been something of dream to me so I have acquired this amazing dream bag!! I am always so excited to find an excuse to wear my new bag and funnily enough, fell in love with the dark and deep tone of the navy. I thought I would only ever want black especially because it’s such a safe thing for me to do for such an intense purchase but I actually really like that the navy challenges me and my style and is actually a nice contrast against my regularly black wardrobe… It’s so cool that this ‘bleu nuit’ colour actually changes with it’s environment, some lighting it’s completely black, some it’s bluer then ever and then some times it’s a smokey dark dark grey. LOVEEEEE IT!!!!!

At first I was a little skeptical of an even smaller then regular PS11 but the more and more I am seeing this wonderful little bag on very stylish people the more I am feeling inclined to obsess that much more over it. That being said here it is in a lovely army print now on sale at SSENSE ~ Oh how I miss my black PS11 that was lost somewhere in this forsaken-city.
