It’s official. Small is definitely in again at Chanel, as the French luxury brand continues to introduce all-new colours of its cult-favourite Mini Flap Bag for Spring-Summer 2020. This includes the eye-catching Green and dainty-looking Pink, both of which are perfect shades for the season, with the icing on the cake being the fact that Mini is an excellent size for day and night.
Measuring 17 cm wide and 13.5 cm high, the Mini Flap Bag is the perfect embodiment of several essential codes of the house, carrying a timeless appeal that will never, ever go out of style. The entire bag is constructed from lambskin, the lush leather that’s smooth to touch and one that continues to undergo rigorous tests for quality till this very day. Chanel ensures that the material has to maintain resistance to climatic conditions, along with checks pertaining to dyeing (no colour transfers) and friction (daily wear and tear), before it’s used in the production of bags, SLGs and the like.
Aside from the chevron quilting which Gabrielle Chanel pioneered in the 1960s, the Lozenge (or diamond) motif is another pattern which remains immensely popular till this very day. You will find the Mini Flap Bag decorated with the unmistakable diamond quilting all over the exterior, finished with a CC logo that functions as a twist-lock clasp which opens to a roomy interior. There’s also an extra patch pocket at the back which is great for keeping additional cards or even receipts for extra convenience.
Interestingly, Green is paired with GHW (much like a lucky leprechaun, perhaps?) and Pink with SHW, so it’s ultimately down to which combo you prefer. Priced at SGD4310 each, it’s best you head down to the Chanel boutique at Marina Bay Sands or Takashimaya Shopping Centre to indicate your interest before they get snapped up the moment they are launched.
