The Spring 2004 Ready-to-Wear Runway Show

The Chanel fashion accessory featured in the Spring 2004 Ready-to-Wear runway show. Lisa Davies, Mariacarla Boscono, and Natasa Vojnovic modelled the bags.

Iconic Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld introduced the Spring show in 2004 as “It’s about Chanel, but wearing it played down”. He described the collection as “Sweet, but not too ladylike”. During the 2004 Spring show models walked the runway to hits by Blondie, showcasing a rock-and-roll vibe. Vogue noted at the time, of this collection, “Lagerfeld’s nonchalance with these to-die-for details that imbues the clothes with their essence of confident chic.”
