I know I’m beginning to sound like a broken record, and you’re probably going to roll your eyes at me for saying this once again, but this is what I do and I’ve got to do it. PVC BAGS ARE MOST DEFINITELY IN FOR S/S18! You’ve seen the Céline one, you’ve just met the Valentino Garavani one, now let me officially introduce to the ones from Chanel. And because this French luxury house makes sure it always covers all the bases with as many styles they can, these are just one type of thick PVC bags you’ll find on the shelves this season.
Known as the Crumpled Leather & PVC Flap Bag, it’s more part Flap Bag on top with a vanity case attached onto the bottom. Available in 2 sizes, I could see this being useful in certain scenarios. Going on a long haul flight? Place your passport and wallet on the top, along with your face-saving toiletries tucked away at the bottom. Want to be the centre of attention at a kids’ party? Fill the top half with a mix of lollies and sweets and you’ll be a child magnet. Can’t bear to be without your favourite soft toy and need to see it at all times? Tuck it away safely in the top half of the bag, though honestly you’ll be bordering on crazy if you do that.
Available in 2 sizes, the larger one comes in at 29 cm by 27.5 cm, while the slightly smaller one is sized at 24 cm by 22 cm. Priced at SGD5210 and SGD4690 respectively, they are now available at Chanel boutiques in Singapore (and around the region) in a wide variety of spring-approved hues.
