New shapes, new fabrics, and an update on a classic. Team Buro discusses their picks from Chanel’s SS18 collection

If shoes maketh the man, then a woman's handbag must reveal facets of her personality. Case in point, the Chanel 2.55 bag, created by Gabrielle Chanel in the month of February 1955. Here was a bag created in response to women's desire for independence, made of materials that were considered revolutionary at that time—lambskin, jersey, and silk, quilted and finished off with a shoulder strap made of metal chain links or interlaced with leather. The Chanel 2.55 bag was a bag that was as daring and inherently timeless as Mademoiselle Chanel was.

 

For Chanel Spring/Summer 2018, Karl Lagerfeld was inspired by nature, specifically by the element of water, reflected in the various shades of blue, transparent PVC, metallic shine, and shimmering iridescence punctuated with the sparkle of crystals.
