CHANEL 22 Bag

Presented for the first time at the S/S 2022 show, the CHANEL 22 bag is the House’s latest bag imagined by Virginie Viard. Like its predecessor – the CHANEL 19 created in 2019 – its name refers to both the year of its creation and a powerful symbol in CHANEL’s numerology: in 1922, N°22 was launched, the House’s second fragrance after N°5 created in 1921.

Anchored firmly in its time, the CHANEL 22 bag combines simplicity and comfort. Functional and light, made of an extremely supple yet resistant leather, this bag comes in three sizes (small, medium and large) and as a backpack version. For summer, it is available in navy blue, purple, and two shades of pink, white and black.

Ever loyal to Gabrielle Chanel’s desire to give women freedom of movement and spirit, the CHANEL 22 bag is a genuine ally for daily life. Its interior, sophisticated and practical, closes with a magnetic button and purse-like drawstrings. It features an inside zipped pocket and a removable pouch held in place by a snap hook.

The CHANEL 22 bag adopts the codes of the House, from the quilted leather and metal chain interlaced with leather to the «CHANEL» signature composed of gold or lacquered metal letters. Finally, it comes adorned with a «CHANEL Paris» medallion with an openwork double C. Modern and refined, the result of the House’s creative energy, it is destined to become a timeless CHANEL creation.

A veritable object of desire, the CHANEL 22 bag writes a new chapter in the history of the House, combining creativity and liberty. It will be available in boutiques from March 2022.

Ladies, get on the wait lists now!

Pantone Color of the Year 2022

For its 2022 Color of the Year, global color authority Pantone has for the first time created a brand new shade: Pantone 17-3938 Very Peri, a vibrant periwinkle blue with violet red undertones. The new Very Peri is the «happiest and warmest of all the blue hues,» blending the «faithfulness and constancy of blue with the energy and excitement of red» to deliver an «empowering mix of newness» with a «carefree confidence and a daring curiosity that animates our creative spirit,» said the company in its announcement.

After the lockdowns of 2020, Pantone chose two colors, Ultimate Gray and Illuminating, to represent quiet reassurance and resilience in the face of difficult circumstances, as well as optimism for the future.

We are living in transformative times. PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri is a symbol of the global zeitgeist of the moment and the transition we are going through. As we emerge from an intense period of isolation, our notions and standards are changing, and our physical and digital lives have merged in new ways. Digital design helps us to stretch the limits of reality, opening the door to a dynamic virtual world where we can explore and create new color possibilities. With trends in gaming, the expanding popularity of the metaverse and rising artistic community in the digital space PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri illustrates the fusion of modern life and how color trends in the digital world are being manifested in the physical world and vice versa.

I personally love this sweet violet-blue shade that can be pretty powerful. It is a positive hue, a jewel tone, with depth and equal brightness, a colour that actually suits all skin tones. It has already conquered the runways and I am sure we will see it a lot in 2022.

LoL, Sandra
