Making its debut during the Cruise 2014 Womens Chanel runway presentation in Singapore back in May was the Parfum Bottle Clutch, a larger-than-life rendition of one of Chanel’s most beloved icons. Sporting the same shape as Chanel’s N°5, here’s one thing to note in case you’re planning to get one when it’s released early next year. While the ones shown during the runway show had the word ‘N°5‘ printed above the Chanel on the clutch, it does seem like commercial versions of the clutch will come without it.
Available in either transparent clear or jet black versions made of plexiglas, each beautifully bevelled-edge work of art (yes, I’m calling it so) comes with its own entwined leather and chain link sling which hopefully can be removed to make it more versatile.
More beautiful than the ‘Lego’ clutch (admittedly that’s really just more fun than anything else), this is perhaps Karl’s offering for the more grown-up clientele amongst those who frequently shop at Chanel. And the people who will buy this clutch will probably have to be grown-up too, considering how early estimates put this at over USD9000 at least.
And if you see me hocking my liver (or kidney) online soon, you’ll know why.
