Best described as Star Trek meets Little House On A Prairie, Karl Lagerfeld has models defying gravity in the latest ad campaign for Chanel, where they are dressed in futuristic garb and doing what ladies living on the prairie did best, knitting, cross-stitching and of course, having tea together.
It is perhaps in this vein of thought that Karl has conceived bags that take inspiration from totally different eras, one, a selection of retro revivals featuring old-school styles and hardware, and another, a set of out-of-this-world creations (did you see the one that resembles a toilet roll holder?) that push the boundaries of what Chanel can do.
If you missed out on any of the F/W13 bags I blogged about so far, here’s a quick way to catch up. Have a look here for a general post regarding F/W13 bags, here for the Plexiglas Globe Clutch, and here for the ‘Lego’ clutches filled with tweed and crystal strass. Once you’re done, you can check out this Facebook album where I’ve posted even more F/W13 bags for your viewing pleasure, as well as the full ad campaign.
And if you are feeling dizzy and light-headed after ogling all the gorgeous F/W13 bags, have a look at their accompanying prices. Trust me, it will bring you straight back to earth. But I jest.
