First presented at CHANEL's Spring/Summer 2017 ready-to-wear show, the new GABRIELLE bag is both an ode to as well as a mischievous wink to its founder, Gabrielle 'Coco' 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.
The GABRIELLE hugs the silhouette, moving with the gait and never hindering it.
An adjustable strap comes with a double chain woven from leather and golden and silver metal, and a unique design allows several ways of wearing it. Be 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.
The GABRIELLE thus adapts to every character, situation or mood.
And with it, Karl Lagerfeld has once again renewed the distinctive codes of the House, with an innovative creation that perpetuates its history and the spirit of its founder who put comfort and liberty at the heart of all her creations.
