Designer Virginie Viard presented new CHANEL 22 bag that fuses simplicity and comfort, and it’s made of an extremely supple yet resistant leather. The name refers to both year of its creation (the bag is part of Chanel‘s Spring Summer 2022 collection) and a symbol in the brand’s numerology – back in 1922 the House’s second fragrance N°22 was launched. The functional, light, modern and refined bag comes in three sizes (small, medium and large) and as a backpack version, in navy blue, purple, and two shades of pink, white and black. With the bag, Viard explores the brand’s codes such as the quilted leather, metal chain interlaced with leather, and the “CHANEL” signature composed of gold or lacquered metal letters. The bag comes adorned with a “CHANEL Paris” medallion with an openwork double C.
“Ever loyal to Gabrielle Chanel’s desire to give women freedom of movement and spirit, the CHANEL 22 bag is a genuine ally for daily life. Its interior, sophisticated and practical, closes with a magnetic button and purse-like drawstrings. It features an inside zipped pocket and a removable pouch held in place by a snap hook.” – from Chanel
The CHANEL 22 bag will be available in boutiques from March 2022.
