It’s pretty obvious why I christened this collection from Chanel’s Spring-Summer 2017 collection ‘Matrix’, especially if you’re familiar with the movie trilogy and its signature falling letters. Thankfully though, these pieces are not as ominous; instead are made up of letters in blacks, blues, reds and whites contrasted against lambskin leather in either Black or Silver.
And while I’m pretty sure there are more variations than the 5 pieces you see in this post, consider this your starting point. For those looking for larger pieces that function well as clutches, there are the two above which Chanel refers to as ‘pencil cases’. Measuring 35 cm by 24 cm (SGD1370) and 27.5 by 20 cm (SGD1220) respectively for the 2 sizes, it’s definitely more cutesy than classic, and great for those looking for pieces that will actually pop with most anything you wear.
Moving along we have these 3 SLGs, namely a WOC, a long wallet with zip and a coin purse, all in lambskin leather like the former pieces and all printed with the ‘falling’ letters. Priced at SGD2520, SGD1330 and SGD560 respectively, the trio is as straightforward as it gets. Want something that you can wear across the body that also functions as a roomy wallet? Get the WOC. Want something long that can be slipped into your regular work bag? Get the long zipped wallet. And last but not least, a cute coin purse for all your loose change. You just really need to decide, will it be Black, or Silver?
