It’s official: chains are in this year, and they are here to stay. From Chanel’s classic chain-strap purses to now Paco Rabanne’s updated chain-metal handbags, the look isn’t going anywhere. Except maybe in your closet or on your shoulder.

Rabanne first released the handbags, worn by stars such as Audrey Hepburn, in 1969. This year, however, he is teaming up with Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcons to update the look.The bag is now available in nine different color combinations–steel, natural horn, stingray leather, warm brown vegetable-dyed leather, matte wine-colored suede, metallic powder pink suede, black rubber, perspex and aluminum–and features a new sleek, square look that moves with you. Rabanne’s updated handbags are light-weight and fashionable enough to take anywhere, whether it’s to work to brighten up your routine or out on the town at night with your close friends. It’s the perfect accessory to put some retro shine into your dull winter wardrobe.

Get the look at Comme des Garcons at 520 W. 22nd Street, 212.604.9200.
