It goes without saying that Chanel has an extensive line-up of bags and accessories, with several designs classified under a permanent range, like the 2.55 created by Gabrielle Chanel which comes with the iconic Mademoiselle turn-lock clasp, or the Classic that was reinterpreted by Karl Lagerfeld and features the signature CC monogram right in front.
Seasonal variations, on the other hand, are given a generic name like Backpack, Clutch, or Evening Bag, along with Flap Bag which is a term reserved for crossbody bags that are furnished with a chic fold-over front flap. And for its latest Métiers d’Art 2019 collection, you will be able to find a gorgeous new Flap Bag, one that comes with several iconic elements that easily makes it a timeless piece which will last for years (decades even, with proper care) to come.
For one, it comes with the inimitable CC logo which has been upsized, doubling as a clasp that sits right in front for maximum effect. Two, the exterior features the iconic quilted pattern which takes inspiration from the equestrian world, stitched on delicate and supple black lambskin leather. Chanel implements a strict selection process for quality leather, choosing skins that come without the slightest imperfections, before it undertakes numerous tests for tensile strength and resistance against climatic conditions, ensuring that the leather is of impeccable quality. Not forgetting the signature leather-interlaced chain strap, rendered in a shiny gold-tone metal that’s reminiscent of the ones found on the Classic.
Measuring 26.5 cm by 16.5 cm, this Flap Bag opens to two roomy compartments that are sufficient for all your daily essentials, as well as an extra zip compartment. Priced at SGD7630, you will be able to find it along with all your favourite goodies from the latest Métiers d’Art 2019 collection that’s now available in Singapore.
