Loving These Chanel Cigar Box Bags

I am a true fan of an exotic-looking cigar box bag. I've owned mine (below) for over 10 years.  Last year, I added a coat of spray sealant to protect it further from exposure to the weather, residual hand cream, etc.

Of course my eyes zeroed in on these two funky clutch versions shown at the Chanel 2016/17 Cruise Collection. The collection had many looks that were styled with a nod to the culture of its tropical background setting of Cuba.

The video of the show is amazing. It opens with a performance by Ibeyi, the French-Cuban duo (twin sisters) ... whose Coachella performance I fell in love with. You can watch the video of the Chanel show on Fashion & the Steal TV.
