Chanel’s newest bag made its debut on the runway of Paris Fashion Week earlier this year. Being the last bag designed under the creative direction of Karl Lagerfeld, the Chanel 19 was designed along with Virginie Viard, who worked alongside Lagerfeld for over 30 years. Today she is the creative director of Chanel.
Chanel 19 is aptly named after its birth year (2019), and pays tribute to its elder colleague, the classic 2.55 bag, created in February 1955 by Coco Chanel.
The original version of the Chanel 19 is crafted of smooth goatskin leather with an oversized diamond quilting. It shows contrasting hardware in both gold and ruthenium, both on the bags long chain and leather strap.
Chanel 19 is not only a shoulder- or crossbody bag, it is also designed to be hand carried via the smaller gold chain.
For now, the flap bag comes in four different sizes: waist bag, original size (W 25 x H 16 x D 9 cm), Large, and Maxi. Even the goatskin leather versions will be offered in a tweed version.
Chanel 19 flap bag är Chanels senaste tillskott av ikoniska väskor. Väskan är den sista som skapades under Karl Lagerfeldst era som creative director hos modehuset. Nuvarande creative direktor, Virginie Viard arbetade med Lagerfeld i över 30 år och har deltagit i skapandet av Chanel 19. Väskan har fått sitt namn efter året (2019) som den skapades. Chanel 19 finns i fyra storlekar och tillverkas i mjukt getskinn och tweed.
