Tired of the Classic Flap? Sick of the 2.55? Want to get yourself something from the French house next season that’s somehow still uniquely Chanel but without the ubiquity? Then check out what has to be F/W12′s most anticipated bag, the small yet precious Chanel Tweed Backpack. It will be hanging off the backs of discerning fashionistas once the new season rolls in.
Petite and compact, don’t expect to be able to fit your kitchen sink in. Best worn slung over your shoulder by way of its long, slinky leather-braided chain, the one shown above also happens to be the one in my favourite combo of aubergine tweed and gold-tone hardware.
If aubergine is not your thing, there’s another in plum velvet and silver-toned hardware that’s no less lush, as well as a larger/taller (read: more functional) one in all-black leather with quilted front pockets.
No word yet on the price (or the release date for Singapore and the region), so do stay tuned for another update.
