So Tough: 12 New Chanel Handbags Your Inner Bad Girl Will Love

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.
Read on for our hit list of the 12 best bags in store now. Don't say Uncle Karl never did anything for you ...
