To my lovely readers— I am currently in Honduras (see more HERE ), I will still be posting, but I have invited some friends to guest post for me as well. Today’s post comes from Veronica of Best of Palm Beach Consignment. Veronica has an amazing eye for great vintage pieces from top tier designers and knows all about how to shop secondhand. She is always inspiring me with her chic finds, both old and new!
Hey everyone, I am Veronica Amarante of Best of Palm Beach Consignment. My blog features luxury designer pieces found at local consignment stores. If you are familiar with my blog you know I am a big fan of Chanel and so is Alexis. When we discussed the opportunity to guest post on North on Harper, I was thrilled, and wanted to share some of my favorite bags from the Spring 2012 collection shown in Paris last month. Alexis did a fine job posting about the collection and you can read that here.
I am a huge fan of accessories, especially handbags, so without further ado here are my favorite bags from the Spring 2012 collection.
What I love the most about these bags is just how different they are. They don’t have “traditional” handles or straps, although they still have the trademark Chanel chain link. They just remind me of the early 19th century kids who carried their books to school in belt-like straps. Personally I am not sure how practical it would be to hold that bag on a day-to-day basis, but I guess it would require the same vigilance as a clutch. In a nutshell, these bags are simply fabulous and I am happy that Karl Lagerfeld and company continue to be in the forefront of new trends and innovative design ideas.
What do you think of these Chanel bags?
(Note from Alexis: In case anyone was wondering, I am salivating over these Chanel bags… but there is probably no surprise there!)
