CHANEL XXL SUEDE FLAP BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-XXL-Suede-Flap-Bag

Who is our favorite oversized handbag? No, it’s not the Maxi. It’s the XXL Flap Bag. The Chanel XXL Flap Bag has been launched not long ago, but the fresh print mixed with suede is something new. The XXL Flap Bag is obsessive because it resembles the timeless Classic Flap Bag but it’s the largest size available. Only when you carry it, will you feel the addiction and see its cuteness.

For the Pre-fall 2017 Collection, Chanel introduces a new print. This Chanel XXL Flap Bag is made in suede, but if you take a closer look, you will spot the feather-light print – there are Camellia flowers all over the bag. The Camellia flower is injected very lightly, which matches great to the luxurious soft suede. The bag feels like a pillow, but also very ladylike and beautiful. The center is crafted with a vintage-look interlocking CC logo and the top comes with a woven chain strap with suede leather strap for the comfort carrying.

This XXL bag is literally XXL. It’s perfect for the busy woman who needs to carry more than her daily essentials. If you’ve a baby or children, this bag is suitable for your current lifestyle. When you open the flap, you will find one large spacious interior, with two large compartments and a front zipper compartment. And believe us when we tell you that it will be notable when you carry it on the street. Style code A91169, measuring $4100 USD, €3980 euro, £3540 GBP, $31300 HKD, ¥504360 JPY, ¥30800 CNY, $5275 CAD via Chanel boutiques.

There is also a full suede version without the Camellia print, the price is the same:

One particular bag that caught our attention would be this unique flap bag. Inspired by the aesthetics of Ancient Greek fashion, this bag boasts of quite sandy, light golden tone which is often associated with the “glory that was Greece.” Made in a braided fashion, this Chanel bag features a concave-shaped flap and an interlocking chained shoulder strap for easy shoulder carrying. The CC clasp is placed in the middle for effortless brand recognition.

CHANEL PURE CLASSIC FLAP BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Pure-Classic-Flap-Bag-2

When we think of the Chanel Classic Flap Bag, the first thing that comes into our mind is the quilting. It’s either the diamond or chevron quilting, but they’re both part of the iconic design because the idea resembles Coco Chanel’s original 2.55 Bag. Now quilting might look chic and luxurious, but there are some fashion people that have a different taste. And exclusively for those people, Chanel has introduced a new addition to the Classic Flap Bag Collection – meet the Chanel Pure Classic Flap Bag. Now let’s talk all about it, shall we?

The Story

In the past, there were many variations of the 2.55 Bag in the market. To stop the confusion, Karl discontinued them all and released the Classic Flap Bag in 1983 that would represent the Chanel brand. A lot of people might think that the Chanel Classic Flap Bag is the modern version of the 2.55 Bag and that is because a lot of elements are alike.

As a part of the house’s history, the Classic Flap Bags were available in diamond quilting or in chevron quilting. Karl also put the interlocking CC closure on the bag, which is now considered another timeless icon. The Classic Flap Bag was available in only caviar or lambskin leather. The caviar leather is strong and durable while the lambskin leather is much softer and luxurious.

A new maxi size was introduced in 2009 and about the same time, Chanel has also switched the single flap into a double flap. And besides that, the look of the bag hasn’t changed very much.

Now just recently, a new addition has been included to the line. It’s the Chanel Pure Classic Flap Bag.

Chanel-Pure-Bag-Leather

Grained Calfskin Leather

The Design

The Chanel Pure Classic Flap Bag is made in smooth leather instead of the traditional diamond or chevron quilting. And it’s a big topic because without the quilting, the look of the bag changes dramatically. The Pure Classic Flap Bag feels much streamlined, minimalistic and smoother in design.

It’s also made from calfskin leather instead of caviar or lambskin. The calfskin is not as hard as the caviar but it as solid and durable. Then again, it’s not as soft as the lambskin, but it does feel nice and smooth. At a closer look, you can see the beautiful grained leather and the impeccable craftsmanship that was required to create this iconic design.

Both the original Quilted Classic Flap Bag and the Pure Classic Flap Bag are available in gold hardware, however the gold hardware on the Pure Classic Flap Bag looks less shiny and the design is quite different as well. But perhaps its because of the overall look, the Pure Classic Flap Bag might not look as good with the golden hardware of the Quilted Classic Flap Bag. By comparing the interlocking CC closure, you will get a clearer understanding of the differences.

Besides these changes, the other parts of the Pure Classic Flap Bag look exactly the same like the original ones like the interior.

The Sizes And Prices

Besides the few tweaks, the Chanel Pure Classic Flap Bag looks exactly similar to the Chanel Quilted Flap Bag. The prices and the sizes are all the same.

Chanel Boyfriend Watch And Boyfriend Black Dial Steel Tweed Collection

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

CHANEL BOYFRIEND WATCH
“Fashion fades, only style remains the same.” This famous quote by Gabrielle Chanel also applies to watches. An elegant luxury watch will never be out of fashion. It’s a lifetime investment. At Baselworld 2016, I was invited to see Chanel’s new watch collections. One of my favourite is the BOYFRIEND Watch, a watch with a masculine allure just for women. Its shape? The Octagon. A shape that brings the emblematic and iconic Première watch to mind, as a tribute to the legendary N°5 bottle and to Place Vendôme. A creation inscribed in the watchmaking vocabulary of the House with its sober, refined design, strong lines, and its signature shape. The design is both contemporary and classic, and its angles are polished or satin-finished. The inspiration: The Masculine. Chanel takes its first feminine creation, the PREMIÈRE, into masculine territory. The BOY FRIEND watch holds within the art of twisting the elements from the masculine wardrobe so dear to Mademoiselle Chanel. CHANEL BOYFRIEND WATCH chanel-boyfriend-tweed (Above) BOYFRIEND Tweed Watch: Steel case (21.5 x 27.9 mm). Steel bezel set with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds (~0.37 ct). Black guilloché dial. Steel crown and black spinel cabochon. Steel bracelet with tweed pattern and steel folding buckle. High-precision quartz movement. chanel-boyfriend-steel (Above) BOYFRIEND Steel Watch (small size): Steel case (21.5 x 27.9 mm). Steel bezel set with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds (~0.37 ct). chanel-boyfriend-paved-beige-gold (Above) BOYFRIEND Paved (Beige Gold): Numbered edition. 18K BEIGE GOLD case (26.7 x 34.6 mm). 18K BEIGE GOLD bezel set with 64 brilliant-cut diamonds (~0.71 ct). Dial set with 382 brilliant-cut diamonds (~1.45 ct). 18K BEIGE GOLD crown set with 7 brilliant-cut diamonds (~0.05 ct). 18K BEIGE GOLD folding buckle set with 48 brilliant-cut diamonds (~0.28 ct). High-precision quartz movement. Also available in 18K white gold.

Tweed is embedded in Chanel’s history. It’s hard to think of the company without its signature tweed jacket. The Boy-Friend Tweed watch is available in two models, a small and a medium size. Pictured is the medium size.

A high-precision quartz movement powers the 26.7 x 34.6 millimeter steel case. The watch functions include hours, minutes and a date, which is seen in a small date window at 6 o’clock. All of this is placed on a steel bracelet with tweed pattern and a steel-folding buckle.

Chanel Boy-Friend Tweed
IMAGE: CHANEL Mention tweed and Chanel immediately comes to mind. It was, after all, Coco Chanel who introduced the seriously proper, thick woven woolly fabric that was once the reserve of English gentlemen to the wardrobes of fashionable women in Paris. Today you’ll see the fabric extensively on Chanel’s signature jackets, on their bags, and there was even a season when tweed appeared on the sneakers that were the talk of the town. Taking it a step even further, and further reinforcing the importance of tweed to the French luxury house, you’ll also find tweed on the latest selection of Boyfriendtimepieces from Chanel. Not the actual fabric of course, but an interpretation of tweed, the watch’s bracelet composed of spun steel wires that are interwoven and then stamped with a tweed pattern. IMAGE: CHANEL The end result? Another beautiful timepiece from Chanel Horlogerie, with a bracelet that not only looks like tweed, but will also sit most comfortably as it adjusts to the natural contours of your wrist. Available in 2 sizes, the larger MM (26.7 mm by 34.6 mm) and the smaller PM (21.5 mm by 27.9 mm), both of which will come with refined steel cases set atop jet black watch dials. For those, however, who prefer a little more bling, there’s the one that comes with a full diamond bezel for maximum brilliance. Now available at the Chanel Fine Jewellery Boutique located within Ngee Ann City, prices start from SGD6500 for the one in PM with the full steel case.

About Chanel The House of Chanel was established in 1909 and has been setting fashion industry standards since. Its founder, Coco Chanel, was an influential designer whose products set an elegant precedence in the Chanel watchmaking sector. Chanel’s watchmaking craftsmanship is a celebrated talent. Most recently, the Maison was awarded the GPHG in Artistic Crafts in 2013 for the Mademoiselle Privé Watch With Embroidered Camellia Decoration. The timepiece features a miniature embroidery, made from silk threads. Each timepiece created was hand-embroidered, thus ensuring each piece was unique.
