From outer space to ancient Greece, Chanel takes us back in time for their #ChanelCruise 2018 collection that’s starting to appear on our local shores. From gladiator shoes topped with heels reminiscent of Greek columns to cuffs and bracelets you can wear on your wrists or upper arms to truly channel your inner Grecian goddess, the star of this first ‘mural’ has got to be that Gabrielle Small Hobo that’s adorned with woven tweed (SGD5170). Prices for the other pieces as shown above are as follows: calfskin cuffs detailed with a gold CC that’s so Wonder Woman? SGD1090. Those feather-like earrings that are made of metal, resin and strass? SGD1130. Arm cuffs (on the extreme left and right of the mural) are SGD1660 each.

Next come the exuberant pieces, with the elaborate necklace that’s chained up with natural pearls, resin, glass and sequin elements priced at a cool SGD6700. You saw the feather-like earrings earlier on, here’s an alternative that’s made out of resin (SGD870) that emulates ancient Grecian vases. Last, but not least, the bag-of-the-season is the owl clutch that’s inspired by old Greek coinage. Retailing for SGD19,990, it is truly more stunning in real life, the detailed brass owl detailed with strass eyes set onto a black resin body.

Rounding off the trio of bags is the Drawstring Bag (from SGD5290) which comes in a pleated crumpled calfskin that’s small enough to be carried like a purse, or slung cross body for that effortless look. Available in 2 sizes, it also comes in variety of colours besides the one shown above. Spotted the cute 90 mm Greek column heels across all three frames? Well Chanel calls them sandals, and they come in full goatskin in a huge array of colours, which start from SGD1660 for the ones with a single heel strap and SGD2020 for the ones that criss-cross their way up to the knees.

But if you thought the entire collection was too thematic for your taste, think again. If you’re a fan of anything beige, cream and pale gold, this is definitely the collection for you, with a wide variety of Chanel classics decked out in this easy-to-match, everyday colour. Available now at Chanel’s Ephemeral Boutique in Marina Bay Sands, you can travel back in time now with the Cruise 2018 collection that will also be partially available now at Chanel Takashimaya Shopping Centre. #happyshopping
