If you thought that Chanel’s S/S13 collection only had oddities like the ‘Lego’ Clutch and the Classic Flap Hoops, well, you thought wrong. There’s actually a 3rd one that got me all intrigued after V Magazine put it up on Twitter last November. After much research and countless nights thinking how it would look sitting pretty on my shelf, may I present the Chanel S/S13 Classic Flap Cage, a wired metal work of art that is part-avant-garde, part-goth and all lust.
One of two variations available (the one shown above comes in Black, while the other’s more Gunmetal), they measure 25.4 cm by 15.5 cm, and come complete with a long slinky shoulder chain, a satin purse pouch (because God forbid if any small personals should slip out) and loads of attitude.
No word on the exact price as yet (though I’m guessing it would be in the SGD7000 to SGD10,000 range) or the release date, so do stay tuned for more updates. Now excuse me while I go find a nice spot on my bedroom wall to hang it, which is exactly what I’d do with it if I do get one.
It’s almost art, isn’t it?
