The origins of the Chanel 19 flap bag
2019 saw the last collection of Karl Lagerfeld, the man who revolutionised the fashion house into what we know and love today. The runway show saw the debut of the new Chanel 19 handbag, which became an instant hit. It has the timeless feel of a classic Chanel bag, with a contemporary twist to make it the perfect bag for the modern woman.
Karl Lagerfeld designed the Chanel 19 flap bag in partnership with his eventual successor, Virginie Viard. The design pays homage to the signature 2.55 bag, reimagining it for the 21st century. Just like the 2.55 bag, the Chanel 19 handbag is named after the year of its creation.
The bag takes the synonymous flap design, with a modern reinterpretation of the chains by mixing gold and ruthenium hardware with a bold and oversized interlocking CC.
As the final bag created by Karl Lagerfeld, the Chanel 19 will always have a special place in our hearts. It’s the perfect alternative to the timeless 2.55 bag and has a more versatile style than the edgy Boy bag.
The different Chanel 19 handbags
Like most luxury bags, you have several options to choose from when buying a Chanel 19. It’s available in 5 sizes and in various fabrics and textures with seasonal releases. Most of the Chanel 19 variants are available in small, large, and maxi sizes.
The Chanel 19 is available in the traditional materials of lambskin and goatskin, along with seasonal additions of cotton canvas, jersey, tweed, and denim. Goatskin and lambskin are the most popular choices, giving you two classic options to let you choose the one that best suits your lifestyle.
Due to its popularity, the Chanel 19 has already been released in several different styles and shapes. You can purchase it as a ‘wallet on chain’ – like the rest of Chanel’s classic designs. It’s also available as an on-trend waist bag, giving you an entry-level version of the famous Chanel 19 bag.
Most variants of the Chanel 19 carry a mixture of gold, silver, and ruthenium-finish hardware.
Celebrity fans of the Chanel 19
No sooner was the Chanel 19 off the runway before it started appearing on the arm of a-list celebrities. Katie Holmes, Cardi B, and Sofia Vergara were among the first to be spotted carrying a Chanel 19 handbag. If you’re thinking of adding this bag to your collection, you’ll be in good company.
