Chanel Airlines Bags

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: CHANEL With travel being the central theme of Chanel’s S/S16 collection (you know, it being #ChanelAirlines and all), it was a matter of time before a post dedicated to all the travel trolleys (also known as the #CocoCase) from this collection appeared on this blog. Measuring 55 cm by 37 cm by 22 cm, the first thing you’ll have to note is that they are all cabin-sized, because a) it wouldn’t make sense to have something so pretty sitting in the underbelly of the airplane half of the time, and b), how else would you be able to match it with your Classic Flap from the new collection, but more on that later. Size aside, it’s as pretty travel trolley-functional as it gets. On the front, you find a zip pocket, and the trolley itself unzips at the side which reveals an interior that’s pretty straightforward. Besides the addition of the 2 more zip pockets on the inside, you’ll also find a luggage tag and a ‘raincoat’ for trolley, you know, for times when it needs to be covered up because the weather’s bad or God forbid for some reason you really have to check it in. But hey, at least you’re prepared, right? Available in a wide variety of colours and materials, the ones in toile with grained calfskin trim (shown above) are by far the most interesting. Bright and colourful with an abstract tweed pattern, look closely and you’ll see the Classic Flap-shaped padlocks hanging from the side. Cute. Price-wise, these will retail forSGD7180 apiece, just so you know. IMAGE: CHANEL Moving along we’ve got more variations, on the left, the trolley in glazed patent calfskin (SGD10,370) and on the right, in tweed with grained calfskin (SGD7180). With the former costing almost 3000 more than the one in tweed, it’s also pretty obvious why. One’s full leather, the other, fabric. Also note that because it is in full leather, it is also much much heavier than the ones in say, toile or tweed.


Here are two more full leather variations, both in grained calfskin in Black (on the left) and Silver (on the right). Priced at SGD10,370 each, here’s the last thing I want to bring up. See the little bags that go on top of the travel trolleys? Whether it’s theClassic Flap in printed calfskin (top image, SGD7280) or the grained lambskin Vanity Case that comes with a sling (3rd image, SGD6220), Chanel has made sure that every travel trolley comes with a matching bag, be it a sling bag or a backpack or even totes, because that would make travelling even more fun, right? The Chanel Airlines runway show left us on the edges of our seats for the new collection. Now that many of the Chanel pieces have hit stores, instagram eye candy is fueling our obsession even more. Today, we’re going to take an up-close look at some of the bags in action. Before we jump in, learn the key facts you need to know about “Chanel Airlines”.

Chanel Airlines

The Chanel SS16 collection is all about “chic travel”. Travel and airplanes are some of Lagerfeld’s favorite motifs, which he also utilized in both the Cruise 2008 and Spring Couture 2012 shows. For this show, Largerfeld transformed the Grand Palais in Paris into a sleek, modernized airport. Despite the modernized setting, many of the looks and bags are reminiscent of vintage travel days of the 50s and 60s with an eccentric edge. Many of the models strutted the runway in pantsuits, tweed skirts, and metallic shoes.

Following along with the recent bag trends we’ve seen, many of the bags are structured and boxy. The collection heavily features bright colorblocking and shimmery embellishments. Standout bags that really showcase the travel theme include trolley suitcases, vanity cases, circular crossbody bags, and an extra large, enormously oversized Chanel classic flap (called the XXL flap). Crowd-favorites judging by instagram attention seem to be the Boy Bags with Neon Trim, Trolley Minaudiere, and large Chanel Classic Flap. In the case of the large Chanel flap, this bag may actually make a great travel companion. Even with some functional pieces in the line, many of the bags featured in this collection are novelty bags with a fun travel theme. If you are a color lover and can appreciate the inspiration behind the line, these bags may be a perfect option for your collection.

The colors blue, red, white and silver seemed to rule this collection. Tweed, denim, and fabric like materials replaced more classic leather options. On the other hand, there were also many bold and glistening metallic pieces.
