If you’re one to follow Pantone’s Colour of the Year rather religiously, know that the shade (or colour, tone, you name it) to keep an eye out for 2019 would be Living Coral. Described as a ‘life-affirming coral hue with a gold undertone’ that carries with it a feeling of familiarity, it is also one shade that’s simply mesmerising.
Which is exactly how one would describe these 3 SLGs from Chanel which come in the bold and beautiful Coral that’s part of the current Cruise 2019 line-up. Pouches are handy accessories that are perfect for days when you don’t need to carry much, holding the absolute essentials like cash, cards and keys. They are also great for slipping into your handbag, keeping you nice and organised without having to shuffle through everything else.
Starting with the Classic Small Pouch (SGD680) which measures 15 cm by 9.5 cm, it’s a true classic that comes with the double C logo sitting on a grained calfskin leather finished with the unmistakable chevron pattern.
The next two are slightly bigger SLGs (both measuring 19 cm by 10.5 cm) that are very much Chanel icons in their very own right. The Boy Chanel Pouch (SGD1210) comes in a quilted patterned body, furnished with the trim and hardware detailing. This pouch even comes with a slip pocket behind the logo, which can be used to keep your receipts or long notes. The third and final piece in this lineup is simply titled Pouch (SGD1370), one that’s obviously inspired by the Gabrielle bag.
Bold, bright and the perfect ‘perk-me-up’ pieces, these 3 are now available at Chanel boutiques in Singapore. Happy 2019 indeed.
