Metallic Chanel Bags: On Trend for Fall/Winter 2023
Across a number of Fall/Winter 2023 runway shows, shimmering metallics in the form of sequins, liquid lamés, and chainmail meshes prevailed. While sparkles tend to shine during the holiday season, their presence on the runway was not limited to evening-wear this year. Glimmery chunky knits and suits have determined metallics will be a round-the-clock fashion statement this upcoming season. Celebrities have also embraced all metallic styles as seen on Beyonce, Lizzo and Harry Styles at the Grammys. While wearing head to toe metallic is probably best reserved for red carpets and stage performances, adding metallic to your fall fashion rotation is easy with a metallic Chanel bag.
Classic Chanel Bags in On Trend Metallics
One way to work metallics into your wardrobe this season is a Chanel bag in gold, silver and other gilded finishes. Chanel bags are timeless and many seasons have featured varying shades of precious metals. A metallic Chanel bag pairs well with classic silhouettes like tailored blazers, trench coats, and knit dresses that were also seen on the runways. The Chanel Classic Flap remains the most popular and sought after Chanel bag. Every season it is released in both classic colors and limited edition versions. A metallic Chanel Classic Flap is the perfect accessory this fall. The Jumbo and Maxi size make a bold statement and we anticipate seeing these metallic bags paired with denim and other neutral basics.
The Gold Metallic Quilted Lambskin Mini Rectangular Classic Flap Bag
Coco Chanel designed the Classic Flap Bag in 1955 as a handbag for women on-the-go. The handbag’s leather-woven metal chain allows its wearer to travel handsfree. This gold Chanel mini classic flap adds visual interest to any outfit by combining the Midas Touch of the quilted gold exterior with the contrast of dark hardware. The smoky classic double C turnlock hardware adds the perfect amount of edginess to the champagne-colored lambskin.
The Chevron Quilted Aged Calfskin Small Gabrielle Hobo
Released in 2017, the Chanel Gabrielle Bag is a modern classic. The unique crossbody/shoulder bag hybrid has a hardshell base and plush zippered top. Named after Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel herself, this bag was included in one of Karl Lagerfeld’s final collections for the fashion house. Its bold geometric design in a shimmery emerald green, is sure to complement textured knit sweaters and fuzzy woolen coats.
Chanel Metallic Gold Lambskin Mini Kelly Flap Gold Hardware, 1996-1997
Mini Kelly is Chanel at its most refined. Chanel released this compact bag in 1995, and it perfectly captures the chic minimalism of the 1990’s. Today, vintage Mini Kelly’s are highly sought after – so much so that Chanel released an updated version of the Mini Kelly earlier this year as an homage to the original. This golden bag is a stunning vintage example of the timeless Mini Kelly. Its monochromatic metallic finishes add something special to any outfit for this fall and winter.
