You can’t have missed the Chanel Coco Pleated Drawstring Bag as it was showcased multiple times on the Cruise 2018 Runway. There are also other types of the Coco Pleated Bag released; like the Coco Pleats Clutches. This drawstring bag is only available in this season and will be discontinued afterwards. It’s one of the Ancient Greek inspired handbags.
Let’s see the details.
Pleated iridescent crumpled calfskin
The crumpled calfskin leather on the Coco Pleated Drawstring Bag has been fully covered in the Coco Pleats Clutch review. The crumpled calfskin is kind-of the soft version of the crinkled aged calfskin on the Reissue 2.55 Bag. Both are crunch, but the crumpled calfskin is slightly less.
The pleated design is quite interesting because it maintains the leather flexible while creating an interest stripe-contrast. Also, the woven chain leather strap is attached to a round-ancient-greek-inspired eyelets, which is quite unique. The drawstring is also made with woven chain leather strap but it features the oversized, bold CC logo. And oh yes, it’s the same CC logo as on the Gabrielle Bag.

This Large Denim Deauville Shopping Bag from Chanel is all you’ll ever need once you go on a mad shopping spree/ retail therapy. Luxuriously stylish and chic, this Chanel large bag can carry all your essentials and other shopping items.
Recently launched during Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2017 Collection Act 1, this one is attention grabbing due to its large size and uniquely fun style. The logo comes in bright orange lettering, proudly displaying that it’s a Chanel bag. The interwoven chained shoulder straps and the handles are two practical things you shouldn’t dare miss. Yes, it means you can carry it by the hand or over the shoulder.
And just like your high-fashion denim jeans, this new oversized bag is made from denim, which means its durable, strong and easy to maintain.
With its large size, it is ideal to bring during your travels abroad. It can hold all your travel essentials such as your vanity kit, neck pillow, iPod, and even your laptop! Mind you, it is a perfect companion for your crazy Bangkok shopping!
If you’re heading to the beach, this bag also proves to be handy as it can hold your sunglasses, wide brimmed hat, sun block, and your favorite book all in one place.
The biggest challenge in shopping is to choose when there is more than one bag that you like. And everyone must have experienced this before, especially when you go to a boutique like ‘Chanel’. Now, life is already hard. And it’s even harder because the Boy Chanel Bag comes in different slightly modified styles like ‘Chevron Quilting’, ‘in Multicolor Tweeds’ or ‘Chain Around’. And if you cannot choose, then its best to just pick the iconic style – the Boy Chanel Quilted Bags.
But there is one more dilemma you have to face and that’s to pick the right color. You see, the blue looks very interesting, but the beige seems to be perfect for all season. Or the burgundy color, which is not too red and attention grabbing, but still attractive. Then the lipstick red is popping out and perhaps you should just go with that one…only this time.
After that, you still need to choose your favorite hardware and the size. Or you can stick with the basics: The Boy Chanel Medium Quilted Flap Bag in Black.
The Boy Chanel Medium Quilted Flap Bag in Black is usually sold-out everywhere. This combination of the Boy Bag is most picked because:
a). The size is just right for many women. b). The color is easily to match with any clothing style c). The combination of the color and quilting is timeless
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 was the love of her love’.
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 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 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?
Chanel’s Reissue 2.55 vintage appeal attained a massive hit among the bag community. A rare and unique piece to own, Chanel thought of a way to amp up their way into the bag pedestal by introducing this Chanel Reissue 2.55 Charm Wallet On Chain Bag.
This Reissue 2.55 Charm Wallet On Chain version features aged calfskin, charms and gold-tone hardware to complement its look. What we love most about it would be its unique charms, which individually tells a story. Take for example the Number 5 charm which represents Chanel No.5, the first perfume ever launched by French couturier Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel herself. The four leaf clover charm represents good luck as Coco herself was very superstitious so she surrounded herself with lucky charms. There’s also a lady bug, dragonfly, owl, and reindeer charms for adornment.
Aside from the wonderful stories behind the charms and the charms themselves, this bag also features thick diamond quilting that Chanel is known for. It also boasts of an interwoven chained shoulder strap for easy shoulder and cross body carrying. Lastly, this bag features the mademoiselle lock in gold tone metal for an added sense of security and a touch of vintage.
The Camellia Flower is a part of Chanel’s tradition due to the love story of the original founder Gabrielle Chanel. The story of the camellia flower started when the man she loved so dearly gave her a single flower and a gift. This man is Boy Capel and he is the love of her life. Even tough their love affair was short and ended sadly; it left a mark in the heart of Gabrielle.
And now meet the latest Chanel Camellia Edge Quilted Bags from the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection. Gabrielle’s love story lives on through this design as the Camellia flower is stitched beautifully on the left side of the front flap. The combination of the colors black and white is what makes it unique. A big part is crafted in black diamond quilting while the edge is made in white smooth leather. The white camellia flower is highlighted by putting on a black fabric. The Camellia flower represents femininity and it makes the bag look chic and ladylike. The top is finished with the iconic woven chain strap.
This is a rare fashion piece as it’s only available in the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection. Once the collection ends, this bag might not return anymore. So if you want to carry a part of Chanel’s love story or wants to sling a gorgeous bag that not many people carry, this is your opportunity to grab one.

The tassel is an interesting fashion piece – it has been around for ages and is seen in different variations in many cultures. Chanel has used tassels in many of their vintage handbags, but rarely in their Wallet On Chain Collection. So it’s surprising to see a Chanel WOC with Tassel in the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection. And it’s also a great opportunity to sling a WOC that’s so different than the others.
This Chanel WOC is a limited edition bag because once the collection ends, this bag will probably never return. It’s also a unique WOC, as we’ve never met such a design before. This WOC is sewed with double stitching to create the diamond quilting effect. The diamond quilting is also bigger than what we are used to – it instantly attracts. The tassel has been attached to the interwoven chain strap, which adds a bit of vintage to the whole appearance. The tassel is also a playful piece and will melt together with your outfit. But what’s more important is the new interlocking CC logo. It’s crafted with little stripes on the edges of the CC sign and it mirrors the double stitching design. There is so much going on in this latest WOC. It’s also a gorgeous mini bag for your boho-chic style, don’t you think?

You think that the Boy Bags are so boyish? Think again because the Gabrielle Bags are also inspired by Coco Chanel’s boyish attitude. The name Gabrielle is deliberately chosen to represent this new collection because people used to call the founder: ‘Coco, Coco’, but that’s not her real name. Gabrielle is her real name.
The Chanel Gabrielle O Case is first introduced in the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection. This pouch is a new addition to the O Case Line, which consists of the Classic, the Boy and more.
It’s easy to recognize the Boyish elements on the Gabrielle O Case. Some of these elements resemble to the Boy Bag, like the part quilting and part smooth leather design.
Now, you can identify the Classic O Case on the smooth CC logo and you can identify the Boy O Case because of the Boy Clasp. But the Gabrielle O Case is somewhat different because its signature icon is the charm on the zip. This charm is designed with woven chain leather strap, then attached to a CC logo in vintage gold hardware and it ends with a leather strap.
The combination of quilting and smooth leathers is creating a strong and bold look. This bag is absolutely irresistible and distinctive comparing to the Classic and Boy editions.
What’s fun about the Gabrielle O Case is that there are numerous of different leathers, embellishment and looks available. Chanel will introduce a new style in each season. For example, you can now pick the Gabrielle O Case in simple Aged Calfskin and Smooth Calfskin leather or you can get the O Case in Tweed with Multicolor ‘Gabrielle’ logo painted on it.
The Gabrielle O Case opens with a top zipper. Inside you will find one large compartment to store all your daily essentials.
