Chanel's Runway Accessories Make For Street Style Magic

Jul 19 2014 - 9:00am

When our favorite style stars start sporting the same designer accessory, you can be sure we'll pick up on it. This time, it's the perfectly faded, cord-embellished Chanel graffiti backpack — the one that made its runway debut in Paris at the Spring 2014 show [1]. We've spotted it on the backs of Diane Kruger [2], Chloë Moretz, and Dakota Fanning [3] — all of whom have pretty great taste [4].

Not satisfied with just a few looks at the spectacular bag, we were inspired to dive into the archives and recall how the design was styled on model. And then the nostalgia really kicked in. It's plain to see that Karl Lagerfeld has given birth to quite a few iconic street style accessories over the years. So, we did a little digging to look back at our favorites over the years — all classic, all memorable, all Chanel.

The Chanel trainers have been reiterated for a few seasons, but the ones Kristen Stewart [8] changed into after the Cannes red carpet were from Haute Couture Spring 2014. On the streets, they're paired with flouncy dresses and casual denim alike.
