PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY OF CHANEL COCO'S GOT A BRAND- NEW BAG THE SIMPLY NAMED GABRIELLE IS CHANEL'S FIRST NEW HANDBAG LINE IN SIX YEARS. BY CONNOR CHILDERS Freedom, comfort, functionality— these were the three requirements at the top of Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel's list when she created a handbag that merged practical- ity with style in 1955. Her idea for dressing the modern woman still rings true today, and it's nowhere more apparent than in the new bag that bears her name. Chanel's creative director, Karl Lagerfeld, introduced the Gabrielle bag during the brand's Spring 2017 runway show. It's a design marvel, fusing the slouch of a hobo-style handbag with a structural bottom, resulting in a contrasting silhouette that feels fresh and excitingly new. In order to achieve this posh juxta- position, the handbag is fitted on a rigid thermoformed base, and the body of the bag is crafted from light and supple quilted leather. Of course, Chanel also has perfect taste in its muses, with Kristen Stewart, Cara Delevingne, Caroline de Maigret, and Pharrell Williams all helping to get the word out in an Instagram campaign. Available in a range of styles (quilted backpacks, chic shoul- der bags, sturdy totes, and youthful bucket bags) as well as a multitude of colorways, the Gabrielle offers endless style possibilities. We can't help but think Coco herself would be pleased. Wynn Las Vegas, 702- 770-3532; . HERE AND TOP LEFT: The new It bag from Chanel hit the runway at the brand's Spring 2017 show.
