As if there aren’t enough bags coming out in the new season to distract us (I have at least 5 on wait list now, and another 5 on my wish list), Chanel gives you one more reason with this bag from their Pre-Collection 2016 line-up. From the same collection as this one, the Caviar Grained Calfskin Messenger that many of you loved (and I’m happy to add, some of you bought), this one, the Small Shopper, will have many falling hard as well.
Measuring 30.5 cm by 20.5 cm, this quilted calfskin darling that’s slight bigger than A4 should be able to hold your work essentials, which besides your wallet, keys and make-up essentials, should also be able to hold an iPad and a couple of work files, especially useful for those who work on the go. It’s finished with aged, slightly tarnished gold-tone hardware that’s love, love, love. Priced at SGD6340, you can now find it at Chanel boutiques in Singapore, so I would suggest heading down soon to have a look if this one also happens to be on your lust list.
If you like the style of the Small Shopper but want something that’s less OL (office lady), why not check out this pair of Flap Bag options in the same collection. Seasonal pieces that come in 2 sizes, the smaller one measures 25 cm by 16 cm while the larger one, in that deep gorgeous Dark Green, comes in at 30 cm by 18.5 cm. Priced at SGD5410 and SGD5970 respectively, they would be the bags if you already have the Classic Flap bags and want something else to add colour and variety to your bag wardrobe.
And for those who love nothing but the Boy Chanel, here are just two of the seasonal interpretations of the now-iconic bag. On top, the shearling sheepskin and calfskin beauty that measures just 20 cm by 12 cm and finished with gold-tone hardware (SGD5710), and below that, another calfskin beauty that comes with braided detailing and completed with ruthenium metal hardware (SGD7390, 25 cm by 14.5 cm) that’s no less desirable. So, which of these would it be for you?
