YOUR IT BAG GUIDE: THE GABRIELLE BAG
If there’s one bag that can be considered a modern classic, it’s undoubtedly the Chanel Gabrielle Bag. Named after no less than Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel herself, the Gabrielle bag was launched in 2017 and was among the last few collections designed by Karl Lagerfeld. The Gabrielle bag undoubtedly possesses both an effortlessly cool and contemporary vibe that’s said to have been inspired by virtual reality sunglasses. More than that, the Chanel Gabrielle bears the design genius of Kaiser Karl while embodying the spirit of the legendary Mademoiselle Chanel.
Whether it’s the Gabrielle Hobo Bag or the Gabrielle Backpack, with its structured yet soft design, the Chanel Gabrielle bag in all its incarnations not only represents the French luxury house as it is today but also the multi-faceted, modern Chanel women. It’s both tough yet soft, edgy yet elegant. It’s no wonder that Chanel Gabrielle bags have now become among the most sought after It bags by fashion lovers, bag aficionados, and Chanel collectors everywhere. But fret not, here at Rewind Vintage, we’ll help you find the perfect Gabrielle Hobo Bag and Gabrielle Backpack for you, whatever size, colour or material it may be.
The Chanel Gabrielle comes in two versions – the Gabrielle Hobo and the Gabrielle Backpack, which are available in standard sizes, as well as small and large styles. Both versions feature a hard, stable base that’s juxtaposed with a light and soft body.
The design also features the iconic Chanel metal chain strap, making it not only a luxurious design but also a versatile bag. You can wear the Gabrielle Hobo over your shoulder or as a crossbody, or even both simultaneously with one strap over one shoulder and the other across the other shoulder. While you can wear the Gabrielle Backpack traditionally over both shoulders or sling it over just one.
Of course, the Chanel Gabrielle bag price depends on your preferred material and size. The fashion house introduced the classic design with a hard leather base and a soft diamond-quilted leather calfskin body. Other iterations of the Chanel Gabrielle have included suede, sequins, tweed, denim, and even rattan, in a wide array of colours and hardware combinations.
The starting price for a Gabrielle bag is in the area of £4,000. Regardless of your specific material and sizes preferences, with Chanel’s recent price increase this year, there’s no better time to choose a pre-loved Chanel Gabrielle. A secondhand Gabrielle Hobo or Gabrielle Backpack is an investment piece that you won’t only enjoy now, but for years to come.
The Chanel Gabrielle has not only quickly become an iconic Chanel bag for women, but for men as well. It’s the first bag from the house of Chanel that’s meant to be gender neutral. Whether you want to purchase for yourself or for your significant other, Rewind Vintage can help you find the Chanel Gabrielle bag of your dreams.
