The star of Chanel's spring-summer accessories collection is most certainly the new half-moon-shaped Mademoiselle bag, but the house is also debuting some chic reinterpretations of its classic flap bag. Of the new styles, two standouts are the pastel-flecked tweed adorned with whimsical gold ladybugs and a bejeweled dragonfly ($3,150), and a gold goatskin covered in glitzy gold strass ($7,000). When it comes to bijoux, Chanel is never one to shy away from a bit of costume drama. An eye-catching enamel brooch is accented with pearls and interlocking Cs at its center ($475), while a resin cuff is inlaid with hundreds of stones ($3,795). Both feel thoroughly modern but would pair perfectly with a timeless Chanel tweed blazer. Spring has sprung rather stylishly, it would seem.
