Despite its relatively new ‘It bag’ status, the Chanel 19 is a timeless, buy-now-keep-forever piece that already has vintage appeal. Reimagined in a hot hue for autumn, this classic carrier is set to inject a much-needed splash of colour into your new season wardrobe
First presented on the autumn/winter 2019 runway, the Chanel 19 bag takes its name from the year of it of its creation; a nod to its classic predecessor the 2.55 which was conceived in February 1955 by Mademoiselle Chanel. Back for autumn/winter 2020 and reworked by Virginie Viard, the soft silhouette features signature quilting, mismatched chains and an emblematic double-C clasp in a range of punchy colourways, such as this high-impact shade of fuchsia.
Swung across a relaxed cardigan, cradled underarm like an oversized clutch or carried alongside a double-breasted blazer worn with a midi skirt and ankle boots, this carry-all has endless wearability; as well as transeasonal potential. Style it with head-to-toe white by day and black by night for an of-the-moment monochrome look, or be bold and wear yours with power pink outerwear (for days when the air-con is on full blast), offset with chunky gold jewellery and a classic black dress.
Huggable and chic, the Chanel 19 is an eternal buy that you can count on season after season. Chanel.com
