Very often, how desirable a bag is doesn’t just boil down to its style or how iconic it already is, but the combination of colours as far as the hardware/leather is concerned. Take this Large Boy Chanel (SGD8000) from Chanel’s Cruise 2020 collection, for instance. The bag isn’t new, it is definitely an icon, but sometimes it will come in combinations that just aren’t titillating to begin with. Except this.
Presented in grained calfskin (which is the most hardwearing of all Chanel leathers) in that perfect shade of Navy and finished with gold-tone hardware, it is truly a sight to behold. One that’s not completely safe in all black, yet not crazy enough that it would sit on your office table with some measure of shame. Measuring some 28 cm by 17.5 cm by 7.5 cm, this is the bag (and colour combination) if you are in the market for a forever classic. Because it is. And will always be. #ChanelCruise
