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, I've learned more about the brand.

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 its peak and I was doing everything I could to find dupes for any of these bags. That's what inspired this post! 

Below are some bags that resemble these Chanel bags but one that I think resembles them the best, you can find on resale websites and it's the Tory Burch Kira Chevron backpack.
