The Bag Everyone Will Want This Year

Gabrielle Chanel was an extraordinary woman of contrasts. Vulnerable yet strong, masculine and feminine, simple but luxurious. The house that bares her name was built on these paradoxes; they’ve become the codes that have tied every Chanel collection and product together for decades. Take for instance, the newest addition to their growing array of covetable bags: the Gabrielle. Aptly called after Mademoiselle’s true name and not her moniker, this bag exemplifies her essence—it is a bag of opposites. A hard base in smooth leather provides a solid foundation that reveals a soft quilted leather upper body. Its double chains combine both gold and silver finishes and allow the bag to be worn in three different ways—on the shoulder, across the torso or both simultaneously—thus celebrating individuality and choice. You’ve probably begun seeing it around on Instagram. It comes in four shapes; hobo, backpack, tote and purse. I’ve been spotting the mini backpack a lot for the past two weeks, and people are going crazy in the comments! This is the bag everyone is going to want in 2017 and it’s sure to become a classic in the next decade. Novel yet timeless, just as Gabrielle would’ve wanted it.
