As Chanel bags go, they typically don’t get any more luxe than the Chanel 2.55 Classic Flap Bag. But these bags, from the Chanel Spring 2012 runway, top our luxury list. The Chanel Ivory Shell Clutch and Pearl-encrusted Shell Clutch minaudières were both showstoppers on the runway and off. Made of a pearlized ivory resin, and covered in pearls, these clutches were designed to look just like real shells. Designer Karl Lagerfeld was inspired by oceanic and underwater themes, so the entire collection had an airy and magical feel to it. And these light, luminous bags would make the perfect accessories for an airy and magical occasion, like a spring or summer destination wedding on a tropical beach. Simply beautiful.
