If you’re on the hunt for a bag that’s way different from the Mini Vanity and Mini Flap Bag you’re already familiar with, the good news is that Chanel has numerous designs lined up for S/S20, all of which will be launched progressively in the weeks to come. A noteworthy piece would be this metallic-framed bag that Chanel refers to as the Clutch, a strapping architectural piece that comes in a single size, measuring 19.5 cm wide and 18 cm high.
On first look, you might think of it as Chanel’s minaudière of the season, but it’s not. In fact, it’s a relatively simple handbag that opens via the logo clasp right above, with a pretty roomy box-like body and a rather broad base. The bag’s constructed with a lambskin leather exterior and will be made available in Black and White, both of which are easy-to-match hues you can’t wrong with. It also scores extra points in terms of versatility, because you can carry it like a chic clutch or attach the removable strap and sling it over the shoulder or across the body if you like. Just so you know, Chanel bags typically don’t have removable or adjustable straps, which is why this bag is excellent for ladies who love having bags that allow for adjustments here and there.
Priced at SGD6180, the Clutch (or Metallic Framed Bag) is priced decently when you factor in the versatility you’re getting with each piece. It will be available at Chanel boutiques in Singapore anytime soon, so head down, indicate your interest and be informed the moment it arrives in stores.
