Just when you thought it was safe to step back into Chanel, this happens. From their Cruise 2016 collection comes the reintroduction of these fabric beauties, more specifically, these SLGs that you’ll be able to spot for yourself as soon as you walk into Chanel stores at either Marina Bay Sands or Ngee Ann City.
Simply designed with Chanel’s logo and that emotion-evoking line, 31 Rue Cambon Paris, you’ll find an assortment of SLGS in 3 lovely hues, Denim Blue, Grey and Pink. From a long 19.4 cm zipped wallet (SGD1390) to a larger pouch that measures 25 cm across (also SGD1390), the upside is perhaps the fact that they would be more affordable than the full leather versions. The downside? You’ll have to take extra care, especially with the ones in Grey or Pink, since any dirt or stain will show up more prominently as well.
Last but by no means least, my all-time favourite SLG from Chanel has got to be the O-Case, which while came in various sizes the last time, will only be available in one size this time around. Measuring 27.5 cm across by 19.5 cm, I’ve seen this in both Denim Blue and Grey at Chanel Ngee Ann City, topped with a zip that runs across it and lined with quilted nylon on the interior.
Priced at SGD900, it’s just too adorable to resist, and because I already have a large Deauville in Denim Blue as well, it made perfect sense to me to get the O-Case in the matching hue. Yes, that’s how I apply logic when I’m shopping, and with Christmas just around the corner, why not, right? #happyshopping
