Well, if you haven't found your bag soulmate just yet, then Chanel is here to end your search. Presenting, the Chanel 22.
What is the Chanel 22 bag?
Easily gaining popularity as today's newest it bag, the designer arm candy is a luxurious yet flexible piece that you will want in your closet. It was designed by the maison's creative director, Virginie Viard, and she named the bag after the year it was created.
She imagined the tote as "an extremely supple yet resistant leather combining simplicity and comfort," according to the brand website. It is a lightweight quilted leather drawstring-like bag. The Chanel 22 has a removable pouch inside, uses the same metal interlaced drawstring as the house's other purses, and has a magnetic button closure. Outside, the bag boasts of a chic gold or lacquered Chanel logo.
The main selling point of the bag, though, is its cavernous capacity. As far as big bags go, the Chanel 22 offers a chic option that luxuriously upgrades and elevates your everyday bag into an all-encompassing purse. You can easily store all your daily essentials inside, with space to spare for a pair of heels you can wear to your date night!
