Chanel’s press day was something of an anti climax. Last season (ie this season, spring-summmer) was all futuristic perspex and vinyl. The autumn winter offering didn’t have much of a theme but I did pick up on a white patent Beatle boot – so clearly the 60s theme does continue. Other than the fur earmuffs, scarves and ski gloves (yawn) the big story was quilted chain strap bags. It’s the turn of jewel brights and primary colours so think tomato red, turquoise, yellow and orange plus a rather special silver mesh chain-strap bag. If you’re over the classic chain-strap bag you might prefer the vintage-look minaudieres. Of course, you can’t auctually put anything IN them, but hey, why would you want to do that?
