Spring is nearing us and so is the need to shop for the oncoming season. Chanel is calling out to all the chic divas with a super-trendy backpack from its 2014 Spring-Summer ready-to-wear collection. Backpacks are no longer identified as only an accessory for school or lugging around heavy stuff. High on comfort as well as function, this form of designer bag has made a comeback as the must have accessory of the season. Karl Lagerfeld has designed a backpack for Chanel that will add the hip-n-cool edge to a chic ensemble.

The designer expresses his opinion about his latest creation, “There’s a certain lightness and a certain kind of humour in all this.”

Raising the bar of exclusivity, even every motif was specially conceived and reproduced thanks to a specific printing procedure by Chanel. Why else would the brand sell the bag with pricey tags of $3,400 for regular size and $3,800 for larger version?

Along with the third shopper version, the Chanel backpack is available in three colors at Colette (213 Rue Saint Honoré, 75001 Paris) from February 24 to March 8. Colette is a designer clothing and accessory retailer located in Paris with 8,000 square feet of space on three floors. This uber-chic designer pack will also be available at Chanel, 31 rue Cambon, 75001 Paris. Time to channelize your savings and into Chanel’s Printed Toile and Leather Backpack!

For all those who missed the action on Fendi Fall/Winter 2014-15 fashion show, take a look at Karl Lagerfeld’s presence on the runway in form of a furry figurine!
