Chanel 3.55 Podcast

Karl Lagerfield’s “outside pair of eyes”, Amanda Harlech, takes each guest under her wing to have an in-depth discussion of what a handbag can mean to a woman, and subsequently what their Chanel handbags mean to them. From a scaled-down version of a house to an extension of one’s state of mind, listeners are privy to the many varied responses and recollections of these personalities; answers can be both evocative of their public personas and surprisingly stark from that portrayal. But the one thing learnt for sure is that a today’s handbags carry more weight than just the daily essentials, and you’ll have to tune in to find out why.

Since the interview was set in Mademoiselle Chanel’s iconic apartment at 31 rue Cambon in Paris, every nook and cranny of her “inner sanctuary” was a manifestation of her fearless attitude and strong beliefs. This may very well be the reason why guests could so easily resonate and tap on the womanly strength, intimacy and sentimentality that pervades the house of Chanel, synonymously concuring the significance Chanel bags have for an age of burgeoning female prowess in the fashion world.
