There’s no better way to celebrate beauty and fashion than to have an iconic accessory that serves both purposes, especially with these chic necklaces that have recently arrived at some of your favourite luxury brands like Chanel, Gucci and Louis Vuitton. Proportionally sized to hold some of your go-to beauty essentials (like lipstick or travel-size perfume bottle), these cases are all meant to be worn around the neck, doubling up as a fashionable accessory that can be easily layered over a simple t-shirt.
There’s Chanel’s rendition of the Lipstick Case (SGD1590), one that’s part of the brand’s latest Métiers d’Art 2020 collection that celebrates the finer things in life. Like keeping your favourite Rouge Coco Flash snug within the luxurious patent calfskin case, sealed with a CC snap closure and embellished with the leather-interlaced long chain strap.
Then there’s the playful new Vaporiser Holder from Gucci (SGD840 for the GG Supreme one and SGD980 for the one in full leather), which is sold together with a refillable atomiser designed to hold liquid perfume for whenever you need an extra spritz to freshen up the day. Gucci designed this so that you can use it along with its in-house fragrances like Gucci Bloom, but you can also switch it around as you please because it can be fun to mix and layer different scents every once in a while.
Lastly, meet Louis Vuitton’s Lipstick Case (SGD2070), which takes inspiration from 1920s makeup boxes, secured with an intricate lock mechanism modelled after the ones found on the brand’s signature trunks and hard-sided cases. Aside from the classic design in Monogram Canvas (with gold-tone hardware), you can go for the Monogram Reverse Canvas that’s slightly more modern-looking thanks to the silver-tone metallic elements.
