I do not own a Chanel bag and I don't know when I will be able to afford a (preloved) one but that doesn't stop me from lusting after them obsessively. My passion for Chanel is a post for another day but today I really wanted to focus on the gorgeous Chanel backpacks that are all over my Instagram.

I also think I timed this post pretty perfectly because of the passing of Karl Lagerfeld two weeks ago. I was really upset to hear about it because he was the head of two fashion houses, Chanel and Fendi. I am not an expert on Chanel and I don't claim to be but over the past few years, as I've become more engrained in the luxury

While backpacks are a trend that has been creeping up for a while, I think it's finally solidified itself as a classic (for the moment at least). I didn't know how I'd react to a classic fashion house like Chanel jumping on a bandwagon trend but when I thought about it, they are the ones who put these trends out so it makes total sense.

There are so many different Chanel backpacks from the Gabriella to the Urban Spirit, but all of them are stunning. While backpacks are definitely a trend, I can see these Chanel backpacks becoming classics because they have everything a Chanel bag should have; quilted leather, chain detailing, and a CC logo.






However, these bags are a pretty penny and as much as I love them, I'd much rather spend my money on a classic Chanel. Despite that, I have become obsessed with them and lust after them every chance I get. It was about a month and a half ago when my obsession reached it's peak and I was doing everything I could to find dupes for any of these bags. That's what inspired this post! 

While I have not purchased all of these bags so I can't speak to the quality of them, I think they're worth checking out. Just make sure you can try them out in store or return them if you decide to get them.







There are two bags not listed here and that's the Rebecca Minkoff Mini Becky Backpack and the Mini Tory Burch Fleming Backpack. I purchased the Becky pre-loved late 2018 and have been loving it! It is definitely a dupe and I enjoy using it -- it just doesn't have a zipper which can be annoying and the chains are hard to manuever but it's a really beautiful bag.

Another dupe, similar to the Becky is the Tory Burch Mini Fleming; I see it available on websites from time to time but you can definitely find it pre-loved. It's a gorgeous little bag and definitely reminscent of a Chanel mini backpack.

What is your opinion on backpacks?
