Remember Chanel’s history making cruise show in Cuba? The collection gave us an assortment of colors, textures and prints inspired by Havana. And while we loved the clothes, we were left waiting for a better look at the accessories. Fortunately, Megs from Purseblog rounded up a series of images of Chanel’s cruise collection handbags and we can honestly say we’re loving these bags. The bags are high on texture with interesting woven fabrics, sequins, macramé and even fringe making an appearance. They definitely capture the freshness of the collection. Have a look at some of our favorites below:
We love this khaki take on Chanel’s classic quilted purse. From the colourful fabric woven through the chain strap to the eclectic brooches, this purse is a not-too-serious take on a Chanel classic.
It hardly looks like a bag at all, but this wood and metal object is very much a minaudiere from the Cruise collection. We love the vintage vibe of this clutch, it’s the perfect accompaniment to a pretty sundress or a diaphanous skirt.
Not only does this purse have an interesting shape, but also some eye catching contrasts. Made from strips of wood and colourful tweed, this bag is the easiest way to lend some tropical charm to a formal outfit.
The collection offers another cool take on tweed with this drawstring bag. The gold details add some refinement to the playful purse.
This summer, don’t leave home without this adorable macramé purse complete with the double C lock. It might be a touch to casual for evening, but it’s perfect for a breezy brunch date.
The collection delivers sequins in spades. This bag offers a tropical take on the American flag with palm trees replacing the usual stars.
This woven hobo bag is so unexpected from a brand like Chanel that we can’t help but love it. With that easy slouchy shape and the woven pastel colors, this is the bag you’ll want to take to the beach all summer long.
