Other Brands

Dior-Explore-In-The-Sky-Hand-Painted-Print

Remember the graffiti prints on shoulder bags and backpacks? There were popular all over the world. Now Dior has their own version, but in a classier style and it looks fabulous. They call this print the Dior Explore In The Sky.

The new Dior Explore in the Sky motif is completely hand-painted and embellished on the DiorAddict handbag. However, we’re also certain that this print will be integrated into other classic bags as well. This playful print is an important launch for Dior as it is moving away from its traditional classic styles that feature the Cannage Stitching. In this artful motif you will find the lettering ‘Explore Dior In The Sky’, a flying bird, stars, the sky at night with beautiful blue lines. It’s the perfect bag to match with your casual outfit like jeans and a pair of sneakers of course.

The DiorAddict is made with the Dior clasp, a front flap and it comes with medium-sized chains in aged golden hardware. A chic tag has been added as the final refinement. The design is also part of its Boho Parisian Elegance theme.

For those that are interested, the leather used is lambskin and the chain can be detached in order to change the bag in a clutch. It measures 21 x 13 x 8 cm and is priced at €3500 euro, £3100 GBP, ₩5,400,000 WON Via Dior boutiques. So what do you think? Would you carry it?

Chanel: #ParisCosmopolite Bags, Bags, Bags!

Other Brands

IMAGE: ELEN WINATA FOR CHANEL

You read about Singapore’s first-ever Ephemeral Boutique for Chanel that recently opened its doors at Marina Bay Sands, you read part 1 of Chanel’s 9 special ateliers collectively known as Métiers d’Art. And you could be asking, what’s the link? Well, Chanel’s Métiers d’Art collection (that is devoted to celebrating these 9 ateliers) happens annually, and this year’s collection is themed #ParisCosmopolite and is partly inspired by Coco Chanel’s time at (and her special relationship with) the Ritz Paris, where she kept an apartment for many years.

Now that you understand the link between Métiers d’Art and the #ParisCosmopolite pop-up boutique, I can now focus on what I enjoy the most about this collection: the bags. And the first one? This show-stopper of a stunner, the aged lambskin leather 2.55 that comes adorned with charms.

Charms that each depict Coco’s time at the Ritz, from the telephone to the hotel key, along with love letters she would have received from her admirers to other Chanel icons like the camellia, the perfume bottle and the #5. Available in two sizes, the larger one measures 24 cm by 16.5 cm (SGD10,820) while the smaller one comes in 20 cm by 14.5 cm.

Another beauty that’s an icon-in-the-making, the new season Gabrielle Hobo that all of you should be familiar with by now. Available in a variety of sizes, they now come in new colours as well, including this one in metallic gold calfskin that measures 28 cm by 21 cm and retails for SGD5700. You can get the smallest one as a weekend companion, or the largest one as an everyday work carryall, it’s really up to you. Also available in metallic silver, tweed, even in a combination of suede and polished calf, I promise you’ll be a kid in a candy store if your heart is set on one.

From the practical to the novelty, here’s a fun full-leather clutch that’s inspired by the regal hotel room door at Ritz Paris, more specifically, Coco Chanel’s very own suite (that’s her room number) at the famed Parisian hotel. Measuring 20 cm by 15 cm by 6 cm, you can use it as a clutch, or simply take out its long metal chain sling from the inside and use it a lovely evening bag. A beautifully memorable keepsake that no hard-core fan of Chanel should be without, this little piece of Coco’s history can be yours for just SGD12,990.

Another novelty piece that I adore is this one, simply known as the Pouch Bag that comes in black or gold sequins. Quite literally as flat as it looks, you could use it as an evening clutch, or hang it on your door. And depending on your mood, you could place it on the side that says Please Dare To Disturb, or flip it over to show Do Not Disturb. A unique conversational piece, this SGD7290 beauty is another collectible no fan should be without.

And now that you’ve seen the 4 I adore the most, here are more bags from the rest of the #ParisCosmopolite collection that you should most definitely check out as well. From the elaborately detailed Boy Chanel and the seasonal Classic Flap pieces to even other novelties like the black/gold striped perfume bottle clutch and the flat 2D evening bag adorned with crystals, just leave a comment here if you would like to know about these pieces and I’ll get back to you guys stat.

CHANEL VELVET QUILTED POUCHES

Other Brands

Chanel-Velvet-Quilted-Pouches

We love new pouches, don’t we? And we love it even more when it’s made from Chanel. So introducing the Chanel Velvet Quilted Evening Pouch from the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection. These pouches resemble the styles of the popular Chanel O Cases, but the look is completely different. And like what we’ve always said; a mix of styles in your wardrobe is a healthy thing.

Perhaps this is not the regular diamond quilted pouch that we are used to, but for each and every style, there is a matching bag. Now Chanel is famous for making quilted designs, but they haven’t crafted one with Velvet-lined quilting before. The quilting is purposely made in extra large size to grab the attention of the audience. The lines are beautifully highlighted with the same color of the bag, but then darker or lighter. The pouch is completely made in Velvet, which is a super soft and luxurious material, but it’s a bit harder to maintain than calfskin leather. Because this is for the fall collection, Chanel purposely picked darker colors to match with your rainy coat.

This pouch also comes with the new interlocking CC logo. It’s made in golden hardware, but in sophisticated cracked style mixed with black hardware pieces. And for those that are interesting, here are the full details:
