Think of Chanel’s totes and several iconic silhouettes immediately come to mind. There was the Coco Cocoon which came in lambskin and nylon variations with a puffy finish that made it a real joy to hug, and of course, the Grand Shopping Tote (GST) that was one of the most in-demand designs from Chanel back when it was readily available on the shelves.
That said, the spotlight shines on another signature at Chanel today, the evergreen Deauville which often appears in seasonal launches from time to time in unexpected colours and materials. On their website, Chanel calls it the Tote or Shopping Bag, but if you walk into the boutique at Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Shopping Centre and look for the Deauville, you will be directed to these.
Offered in different sizes ranging from a small square-like silhouette to a larger carryall size, some pieces come with a pair of leather handles while others do not. It ultimately comes down to personal preferences, and the one pictured above (sans leather handles) is part of Chanel’s Spring-Summer 2020 Pre-Collection and made available in colours like Beige, Navy and Pink. Measuring 35 cm by 26 cm (which also means it is a great size for the guys), this particular one is priced at SGD3490, which in all honesty is also a really good price if you know how much Chanel’s bags and SLGs generally cost.
Looking for something iconic yet casual and fun without breaking the bank? This is definitely it, guys.
