We’ve always loved a good Chanel bag no matter what the season is and regardless of which famous face is carrying it.

This timeless purse can effortlessly upgrade an outfit and turn any ensemble from bland to fabulous.

Because of its expensive price tag, a Chanel bag has also become a statement fashion piece. But all bag lovers know that it is well worth the splurge!

Nicky Hilton, spotted yesterday walking around New York in a printed mini dress, showed us the worth of a bag from Chanel — while her dress is nothing special and its frilly sleeves are distracting, her rare Chanel tweed bag is nothing short of gorgeous.

We’re not sure which particular collection this tweed purse belongs to as the brand often includes a handful of special tweed bags in their collections. Our guess is that it’s from the latest fall lineup.
