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 LADY CLUTCH WITH CHAIN

Other Brands

Chanel-Lady-Clutch-with-Chain

For women who are on a lookout to finding a New Chanel bag to complement their style, look no further as the odds are in your favor. Presenting the Chanel Lady Clutch with Chain, which looks every bit of a feminine bag fancy!

The Chanel Lady Clutch with Chain is something we’re excited to talk about because of its unique and distinctive design. If you’ll observe, it actually features two designs as the middle is styled in a clutch-like fashion while it is elegantly wrapped in thick diamond quilting. The other feature you’ll also notice would be the round-like clasp in the middle, which has double purposes: for security and ease of access.

With an irresistible aesthetic appeal, this bag exudes nothing but femininity. You’ll definitely know what we are talking about if you take a good look at it. Aside from this, this Chanel bag features the CC logo in the middle for instant brand recognition. It also has an interwoven chained shoulder strap so you can carry it by the shoulder or cross-body.

This is a cute mini bag, even cuter than the WOC but not as functional due to its smaller size. This lady-like bag is perfect as a mini evening bag or special evenings because of its chic design.

We do not have the style code, sizes or the prices, please check with the SA.

CHANEL METALLIC O CASES

Other Brands

Chanel-Metallic-O-Cases-2

If you think you’ve had enough taking a peek into the future, think again as Chanel is bringing us more futuristic bags and accessories.

When something is beautiful, we want to see more. So we wouldn’t mind if Chanel bring us more of those futuristic bags and accessories. With a theme entitled “Data Center Chanel”, Karl Lagerfeld is really keeping up with the statement as he brings the Chanel Metallic O Cases to the fashion shore during the Spring Summer 2017 Collection.

Made in shiny metallic leather to match the futuristic theme, these Chanel Metallic O Cases prove to be a must-have in every woman’s bag. Why? Aside from the fact that they are fashionably chic, these cases also prove to be handy as you can easily store your essentials inside them such as your wallet, car keys, smartphone and even your make up basics!

Actually the Chanel O Case is much like the Classic Flap Bag. Both are part of the permanent collection. The Metallic edition is really only available in this season.

And for Chanel fans, you’ll notice that instead of using soft silver hardware, these cases are now made in ruthenium hardware to match the metallic leather. And oh, you can always choose from two leathers as they are available in lambskin as well as in calfskin.

Chanel Velvet Boy Quilted Flap Bag and Duo Color Clutch Bag

Other Brands

Chanel-Velvet-Flap-Bag

If you took a few minutes to read our made-with-love Chanel Leather Guide (I assume you already have), then you will know that generally, handbags made from Velvet are the lowest priced. It’s an opportunity to catch a CC designer bag and lock it up in your wardrobe.

However, the design is entirely different and of course the feel. The Boy Quilted Flap Bag in Velvet feels much softer (not the lambskin soft of course) and the boy in calfskin feels much more durable. They say its not easy to clean ‘Velvet’, you can read more about this material at our Chanel Leather Guide.

Chanel-Velvet-Flap-Bag-3

Besides the material used, the look is exactly the same – you get the iconic Boy CC logo on the front, the big strong shoulder chain strap and its entirely quilted. I think the Velvet version is great to have, if you already own one in leather.Chanel-Duo-Color-Clutch-Bag
It’s true what they say, I am here to confirm; ‘Chanel bags never end’. They are like fairytale stories with the ending, they are like drama series but without the final chapter. And a few personal words for the bag addicted (no cure, we guarantee), as long as you keep loading that gun, you will always have enough bullets to spree – it’s the only way to feed our obsessions.
Now too long ago, we did a full review on the Chanel Duo Color Flap Bag. This bag, which is cheaper than the classic flap bag, It’s quite similar to the ‘easy flap bag’ or the ‘CC Crave’, if you can remember that too!
But anyways, Chanel also made a Duo Color Clutch Bag, which is also available in store right now. It’s features a CC logo on the top, quilted and it comes with a long shoulder strap. Basically it’s the same design like the Chanel Coco Pleats Clutch Bag. If you need a Chanel to go from day to night, this is what I would pick. (and if your wardrobe is stocked with endless flap bags).
This bag is named ‘Duo Color’ because it has bicolored leather featured in the interior lining and the interior of the strap.

This Is the Most Expensive Louis Vuitton Handbag You'll Ever Lay Eyes On

Other Brands

Louis Vuitton rolled out its  Cruise collection, and with it, plenty of City Steamer bags to lust over. The smart silhouette features an easy-to-tote structure and sophisticated details like a small gold padlock and optional monogram. But the luxe style you're looking at right now? That's the beige crocodile version, and it retails for $55,500, making it the most expensive LV handbag ever.

Don't get us wrong — we'd be hard-pressed to find something wrong with the impeccably crafted accessory. In fact, its neutral color and patent finish make it the perfect wear-every-day bag. But would you shell out the cash for this City Steamer? Or, better yet, add it to your holiday wish list? Read on to see Michelle Williams model the design in more standard colorways, then admire LV's priciest offering once more, and let us know if it's worth the splurge in the comments section!
Top 5 Investment Bags
Have you ever fallen in love with a bag, only to see it slip through your fingers? First you decided that it was too expensive and that you needed time to decide if you really must have it, then the next thing you know, it’s sold out! I pride myself on always finding the bags I love, no matter how high or low I have to search for them, and one of my newest solutions is eBay. Not only can you find limited edition pieces, you can often find them at better prices than they were originally, turning the high cost of investment bags from bank-breaking to bearable. Kelly and I personally curated this selection of must-haves, along with more than 20 other Snobby collections that cover everything from fashion to home dècor – follow them here! #FOLLOWITFINDIT
Celinè Python Mini Luggage Tote ($5,999): The Luggage tote is an “it” bag that we see everywhere, so to up the stakes, get it in python! Even though this is a neutral, it’ll never fail to excite.
Hermès Kelly ($19,888): This won’t be the last Hermès on the list. When it comes to investing in a lifetime love, the French icon is hard to beat. Indulge in Grace Kelly glam this winter with a decadent, rich red.
Chanel Classic Flap Fantasy Bag ($5,499): For the Snob who already has a basic flap bag, this Evening Garden version will be just what the name implies – a Fantasy. Turn fantasy into reality by picking up the ultra-embellished tweed for your collection!
Hermès Black Birkin ($19,995): This is the investment bag of all investment bags with a price tag to match, yet at a sizable 40 cm, you’ll get more than enough use out of it!

Louis Vuitton Black and White Graffiti Alma Bag ($1,725): This LV logo graffitied tote may not be a prim and proper investment, but it is most certainly one of the wisest. Artist Stephen Sprouse’s collab with the brand is truly iconic and its statement-making pieces are hard to find!
