Why fix something that isn’t broken? Just update it! This has been Karl Lagerfeld’s mantra for decades now, and this spring is no different. Nothing says Chanel more than the legendary diamond stitching, a leather-embellished chain and the classic black & white colour story. But a backpack? That’s the new-generation classic. We’d wear our Gabrielle backpack over a maxi flowy floral dress for a 1990s Courtney Love-inspired look or with a light-blue tailored suit, for a playful take on a classic. Vive Coco!

Chanel Gabrielle backpack is available at £2,440 from Chanel’s flagship store, 158-159 New Bond St, Mayfair, London W1S 2UB.
