Karl Lagerfeld takes good care of us Chanel-loving ladies. While most designers debut a new batch of bags four times per year, good, old Karl stays holed up in his Parisian workshop, working his be-gloved fingers to the bone to deliver a new set of handbags a whopping six times per year (okay, he may also be training his Siamese cat Choupette to use an iPad, but all work and no play, right?).
This season Karl puts a wicked spin on the classic ladylike Chanel look. His fierce new Alice Dellal-inspired Boy handbags are a tough take on the traditional flap bag with heavy chains and a boxy utilitarian shape, while the usually demure clutch bags now come in every color of the au courant rainbow, from acid yellow to shocking pink.
