Preview of the Chanel Brasserie Fall / Winter 2015 Collection

Introducing the preview of the bags from the Chanel Brasserie Fall/Winter 2015 runway collection featuring the “Brasserie Gabrielle”. A press presentation was held last month in Paris in which some of the upcoming bags and accessories were revealed and more recently a presentation in New York. Recall that the runway show was held at a Parisian Bistro and the collection featured a number of restaurant inspired pieces including a menu clutch and dining plates. The Chanel boy bags were adorned in colorful tiles that matched the floor of the Brasserie. The classic Chanel Reissue bag will be getting the charmed treatment this time with mini spoons (also available in a smaller clutch).

Check-out the full array of offerings that will be available later this year!

Louis Vuitton Fall 2015 Runway Bag Collection Part 2

Louis Vuitton


It was supposed to be a ‘Lady Bag’, that is its name. When first presented at the Fall 2014 runway, it was designed in monogram canvas with black finishing around the edges and on the handles. The new Louis Vuitton Lady Bag however, is entirely in black. It’s bold yet luxurious.

The Louis Vuitton Lady Bag in Malletage print – diamond patterns at the front and back. It’s eye-catching and timeless. And it comes with a deluxe LV luggage tag.

The Petite Malle Shoulders Bag will be made in new prints including tweed and exotic leathers like croc. They all come with a leather strap that can be knotted for hand carry.


The new bag.

I do not know its real name, yet. But the design looks stunning and certainly the sophisticated front golden closure. Graved with the Louis Vuitton signature, it features a luggage strap from the inside. This bag can also be changed into a clutch bag, anytime.

So what do you think about the new collection?

The Chanel Fall Winter 2014 Pre-Collection was just the ‘tip of the ice berg’, we hoped you did not max. your credit card, or did you? Now for the Chanel F/W 2014 Collection Act 2, there are juicier bags that can make us go ‘crazy’, just like that! And because this collection is quite large, we separate it between the ‘seasonal’ bags and the ‘boys and classic’ bags.

And just like always, before you dive in and expand your wish list, we want to give you some guidelines. You know what, let’s talk about the top 3 bags that it’s a 100% qualified ‘must have’ for this season:



Chanel Lambskin Tote With Drawstring Closure
Style code: A94119
Size: 18.1′ x 12.6′ x 3.5′ inches
Price: $6,900 USD or €4650 euro’s


Chanel Lambskin Tote With Drawstring Closure
Style code: A94119
Size: 18.1′ x 12.6′ x 3.5′ inches
Price: $6,900 USD

The Chanel Lambskin Tote with Drawstring is actually an extended version of the Classic Flap Bag. In fact, it’s kind of like the ‘evolution’ of the Classic Flap Bag, like that the interior has grown and expanded. But there is a secret that you must know – the picture shows that it is a shopping tote, grab it on the top handles and swing it down the street. This style (Shopping Tote) gives you so-much more spacious. However you can change it back to a shoulder bag anytime you like. Simply fold it down and use the chain for the shoulder carry. Tada!


Chanel CC Delivery Large Bag
Style code: A92580
Size: 10.2′ x 15′ x 4.3′ inches
Price: $5,200 USD or €3500 euro’s


Chanel CC Delivery Small Bag
Style code: A92577
Size: 9.1′ x 12.2′ 3.5′ inches
Price: $4,700 USD or €2750 euro’s

A new addition to the Chanel Seasonal Flap Bag Collection, it’s the Chanel CC Delivery Bag. It’s a gorgeous accessory with elements that make any girl proud to own – quilted, the CC logo on the front flap, with interwoven chain link and finished with rigid handles on the top. Even the CHANEL signature has been crafted on it.


Chanel Mini Tweed Flap Bag
Style code: A90520
Size: 7.7′ x 9.3′ x 3.5′ inches
Price: €3200 euro’s

Finally, the must have seasonal bag, in our opinion, is the Chanel Mini Tweed Flap Bag. Oh gosh, so cute, it’s like the Chanel Classic Mini Squared Flap Bag. It’s a timeless piece as well as an all-seasonal piece – wear it in spring, summer, fall and winter. Do you know a fashion outfit that matches to this bag? I bet you do!
