Chanel Gabrielle

Chanel has launched a new collection of bags paying tribute to the house’s founder, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel. The Gabrielle bag combines beauty and practicality as the large structured base allows you to search for your belongings with ease while the supple quilted leather of the body moves with you as you walk. Comfort and elegance were key characteristics in all of Gabrielle’s creations, which is why this bag is the perfect homage to fashion’s dearly departed leading lady.

$3,950 – $4,900
