7 Fabulous Chanel Bags We Spotted on ‘Emily in Paris’

Netflix’s latest answer to Sex and the City – the comedy-drama Emily in Paris, certainly has fashion lovers talking.

Lily Collins stars as Emily, a social media marketing executive, who ends up with the opportunity to work in Paris. The twist? She doesn’t speak French! This charming Netflix series is filled with amazing fashion, hilarious moments, and some steamy chemistry between Emily and her neighbor.

We at Pursebop have been living vicariously, through Emily…in Paris! With memories of balmy summers in Europe,  in particular Paris, watching young and vivacious Emily navigate and thrive in her new life has been nothing short of mesmerising. Her charm and effervescent personality, teamed with a fashion game that is right on point are an escape of sorts for many of us.

With Sex and The City’s costume designer Patricia Field consulting the show’s fashion department, it’s no surprise that this series’ handbag game has us in awe. Like us, Emily seems to be a fan of Chanel. So while we ride out the imminent winter and wait patiently for the chance to travel once again next summer (Paris, here we come!), we present the seven best Chanel bags which Emily sports in this magical city.

1. The Limited Edition Pearl Bag

Seen In: Episode 2 “Masculin Féminin”

Featuring an exterior shaped like a giant pearl, this bag has some of the classic Chanel codes including a CC clasp and a chain interwoven with leather. Emily styles the bag with a white feathered crop top and is seen wearing it right during a scene when she’s having a difficult conversation with her long distance boyfriend. We also spotted her carrying a Chanel shopping bag in her hand in this scene and are curious about her purchase! Did Emily just buy another stunning bag?

2. The Malachite Green 'Round as Earth' Bag

Seen In: Episode 2 “Masculin Féminin”

We spotted Emily strut into the office with this cute round bag casually draped crossbody style. The bag features a long and a short chain, allowing you to carry it in your hand, on your shoulder or crossbody. The longer chain is reinforced with a leather patch for shoulder comfort.

3. The 'Evening by the Sea' Clutch

Seen in:  Episode 3 “Sexy or Sexist”

Emily styles her powder blue Evening by the Sea Clutch with a floral blue dress and a lilac leather jacket! The clutch takes inspiration from its name with gold hardware in the shape of a lifesaver at the front of the bag. A gold ball is attached with a gold chain through this lifesaver shaped hardware.

4. The Chic Pearls Flap Bag

Seen in: Episode 3 “Sexy or Sexist”

The Chic Pearls Flap Bag looks a lot like the Classic Flap Bag but with a couple of differences. First, there is a row of pearls on top of the bag that also acts as a handle. The pearls give the bag a classy look, and the single row adds an understated elegance to the bag. Moreover, the fact that you can hold the bag with the pearl handle or the strap also makes it more versatile than the Classic Flap bag. Second, this handbag has the vintage CC clasp rather than the smooth CC clasp.
Emily wears the bag with a black and white checked coat and a bright red beret.

5. The Calfskin Flap Bag with Coin Purse

The Calfskin Flap Bag with coin purse is a beautiful and versatile bag crafted with the traditional Chanel quilting. The coin purse is detachable and can be used on its own or with any of your other Chanel bags if you so choose.
The bag appears in Episode 4 when Emily is out buying roses. We love the way she styled the bag with a bright pink overcoat!
