Gabrielle Chanel became known for making clothing and accessories that epitomized the modern day woman, as they were not only elegant, but also functional. Over the past 30 years Karl Lagerfeld has continued to recreate pieces that achieve this quality, and the launch of Chanel’s ‘Gabrielle’ bag collection does exactly this.

Marking the brand’s first major bag collection since ‘The Boy’ in 2011, the collection was introduced during the Spring-Summer 2017 Ready-to-Wear runway show, and is modeled after the binocular cases men used to wear over the shoulder at the racecourse.

The handbag comes in a classic hobo version, that is also available as a backpack, large shopper and more whimsical purse. The adjustable strap similarly lets you wear it three different ways: over-the-shoulder, across the body, or both at the same time, allowing the bag to transform for any occasion at hand.

As Chanel’s ‘Gabrielle’ bag pays tribute to its iconic founder, it also speaks to her constant desire to put women’s freedom first, and help redefine what such an adaptable handbag can symbolize for a woman: freedom of style.
