Already, there are many new things to look forward in May. Besides the flip-flops from the Havaianas and Missoni collaboration, there’s also the Loewe ‘Cherry Blossom’ Amazona, as well as the Gucci Benefit Japan Bracelet, all of which have already been covered here or on my Facebook fan page.
Come early May you’ll have another new limited edition to contend with. To celebrate Chanel’s reopening at Ngee Ann City (it has been given a facelift and an extension into a duplex luxury experience), Chanel will be releasing a collection of totes in different colours. Officially known as the Chanel ‘Singapore Exclusive’ Metallic Snakeskin Tote, a generously sized bag that’s covered in, you guessed it, metallic snakeskin which will come in 3 different colours: Bronze, Gold and Silver.
An interesting feature of the tote is the oversized tassel, which can be pulled to unzip the base of the tote and expand it, making it more roomy. Each tote will come with a silver metal plague with the words ‘Singapore Exclusive’ etched on it, and while I don’t yet have the retail prices for these babies, I expect them to cost a pretty penny. More updates to come.
