In his 36 years at Chanel, the late Karl Lagerfeld not only revamped the brand’s image, but also took the fashion house into the next century with his future-oriented vision. With an ability to elevate and transform everything he touched, he was one designer whose ability to innovate was relentless. Lagerfeld left us with one last parting gift in his final collection: an unexpected new bag style to remember him by.

The Chanel ‘Side Pack’ is where accessories and jewelry intersect, becoming a wearable piece of art. The quilted lambskin creations have all the makings of a standard Chanel bag: a flap fastened with a metallic double ‘C’, strap chains interlaced with leather, and that iconic quilted texture. Innovation comes from criss-crossed engineering, which results in two bags strapped across the chest – double the Chanel, double the fun.

For day or night, the ‘Side Pack’ knows no limits in its styling possibilities, allowing itself to be paired with everything from jeans and a tweed jacket to more formal ensembles. Simple, fresh, and a touch unconventional, it’s highlighted in the Spring 2019 ready-to-wear campaign that was shot by Lagerfeld himself. In the sleek tableaus that follow, below, models Rebecca Longendyke, Kris Grikaite, Nora Attal, Vittoria Ceretti, and Hyun Ji Shin come together to demonstrate the stylish bag’s versatility.
