Chanel created a spectacle for the woman on the go in order to debut their spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection at Paris Fashion Week, as we covered after the show premiered. To continue the “Chanel Airlines” theme, designer Karl Langerfeld created a luggage and accessory collection that also walked the runway, but deserves more singled-out notoriety.
With these new looks, a real fashionista will be able to travel in style. She can check her chic luggage, before taking her fabulous carry-on bag or backpack through the terminal and onto the plane, and finally to the destination, where she can saunter up to claim her luggage at baggage claim, so everyone waiting can see just who the wealthy owner of the gorgeous bag is.
There’s definitely a Chanel stamp that makes garments and accessories recognizable to the brand alone, and with the French label being world-famous, women travelling anywhere in the world can be sure to stand out in the crowd – more specifically the terminal.
Each bag available within the Chanel spring 2016 accessory collection features the unmistakable Chanel logo, and each carries its own unique charm. The first piece of rolling luggage was presented in classic Chanel, with the quilted black fabric. The owner of such a bag lives in the lap of luxury, or so she wishes to convey, and Karl Langerfeld clearly wished to cater to that woman’s needs.
The circular, convertible over-the-shoulder bag with red, white and blue on black was one of the most interesting Chanel bags for spring 2016, mainly for its subtlety without compromising the elegant flair of the brand.
There was certainly not a want for color in this collection, because Langerfeld chose colors from all areas of the color spectrum, making it hard to choose just one must-have bag from the line. The simple solution would be to buy them all, so you could travel in fashionable comfort for the rest of your life – or until Chanel comes out with a new accessory line! But for the fashion conscious woman with a tighter budget, there’s a tough decision ahead.
These bags are versatile for the fashion and travel worlds, because you don’t need to be all dressed up and ready for the jet-setting lifestyle in order to rock Chanel’s travel bags. The rolling luggage pulled by a jean-clad woman would be striking in any airport terminal, but that’s not to say dressing up would hurt the image.
Clearly any fashionable lady who wishes to portray an elegant persona shouldn’t stop with just the outfit and the bag, but must also display the jewels to polish off her look. So, of course, Chanel offered just that for spring 2016. Models in exquisite chunky jeweled bracelets and necklaces were as striking as models wearing classic Chanel logo bracelets and sunset shaded aviators, showing you don’t have to dress up in ritzy garments in order to rock these fabulous bags when you strut down the airport terminal – but you always have that option!
