Aside from Kendall Jenner cementing her top model status with a stroll down the runway at at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, Karl Lagerfeld's elaborate new handbags are talk of today's Chanel show.
While handbags are rare on the couture catwalk, Karl clearly gave his new bag collection some extra thought, meticulously matching fabrics and details with the grand embellishment on his dresses.
Though the main AW14 handbag collection had a supermarket theme, Fall Couture is nothing if not refined and well executed.
Tartan and tweed have gold thread and sparkle running through the weave, fringing is more 'luxe cashmere blanket' than Dallas inspired cowboy, and the bridal bags?
Well, the embellishment here is enough to pursuade us that every wedding gown needs a Chanel crossbody.
