Spring’s Missing Link: Chain bags are back
–Joanne Molina, Senior Editor
Maybe it’s because Mary-Kate Olsen got her first (and hopefully last) NYT byline by writing about her red quilted Chanel bag with chain link strap, but after seeing the Chanel piece in all it’s glory I started seeing it everywhere. Found in Urban Outfitters and Bergdorf’s alike, and bound to every material from patent leather to snakeskin, it adds just the right amount of subtle shine. If it’s not paired with gold lame circa 1982 it can instantly upgrade your outfit regardless if you’re going rock out or if you’re meeting fellow ladies who lunch.
