One of the things I love most about iconic fashion Houses such as Chanel is their rich heritage. I adore how they honour their icons (which is exactly what we did for our first Chanel collab) and manage to update their classics so effortlessly - season after season. So I was thrilled when Chanel launched a new line of IT bags, as an ode to the House's founder, Gabrielle Chanel (lovingly called Coco by most). Including playful bucket bags, more structured versions in black & white, and even some extra special ones with metallic and embroidered details, there's literally a bag for every occasion. And the best part? Due to the inventive double chains, all the bags can be worn in 7 different ways! Talk about reinventing your classics, right?

We made a mini series with my 3 favourite ways to style the Gabrielle de Chanel, for those typical day-to-day Spring activities that make this season so amazing. First up: running errands in the city! There's nothing nicer than strolling down the city on those first warm days of the year, taking in all the excitement that comes with a new season - you know, muted conversations from packed terraces, kids running around, and everyone equally high on milkshakes, fresh flowers and a new upbeat soundtrack. 

In other words: the perfect occasion for a practical-yet-stylish Spring outfit, that even made me and my whale-sized belly feel comfy! I paired a simple black jumpsuit with a cosy knitted cardigan and pink slides ('cause I had matching pink flowers on my mind - totally nailed it :)). To avoid ending up with a too cutesie outfit, I added a pair of oversized sunnies, a chunky choker (obsessed!), and definitely one of my favourite Gabrielle bags, a black quilted version with golden figures (from the Métiers d'Art Paris Cosmopolite collection, available right now!). I took advantage of the genius 2-parted-chains trick that comes with this bag, because who has time to deal with a bag sliding off your shoulder when you're picking out food and flowers anyways? Hope everyone's having a sunny day!

 

Stay tuned for the next Spring activity in our Gabrielle de Chanel mini series: lunch time!
