At Fashion Week in February this year, French fashion house Chanel introduced a new line of bags that are already being worn by a slew of celebrities. After the success of the previous launch of the Boy bag back in 2011, the brand was due a new line, and so we were presented with the Gabrielle. A bag that comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, but our favourite is of course the popular hobo style tote. Kate Foley starred in a video for the tote bag for US retailer Bergdorf Goodman. Chanel brand ambassador Kristen Stewart has been spotted wearing hers to a number of events, including a pre-Oscars party. The Gabrielle bag is now available to buy on Bagista, so here are some more details about the bag of the week.
One of the larger bags in the Chanel bag family, this is perfect for the daytime as it is spacious and comfortable to carry. The strap can be worn across the body, over the shoulder and even one strap on each shoulder and the relaxed shape means it can be worn as a casual bag or dressed up for the evening. It is slightly more versatile than the GST XL, as the straps really change the effect of the bag meaning it can be styled according to the occasion.
Featuring the signature quilted leather in an aged calfskin, the bags upper half is contrasted against a smooth calfskin base. Our Gabrielle features gorgeous two tone hardware in both silver and gold, meaning you can literally wear this bag with anything. The Gabrielle hobo bag is a great investment for any season for a touch of Parisian-chic.
