September is the month when luxury houses start showcasing their new collections, and it is no different at Chanel, which has their #CHANELFallWinter line-up slowly but surely arriving into Singapore. This season also marks the first anniversary of the Chanel 19 bag, which is why you will be able to find a beautiful assortment of designs in tweed (a key signature of the French luxury house), velvet and shiny crumpled calfskin all lined up in celebration.
And for firm believers that ‘bigger is better’, the Chanel 19 Maxi will be making a celebrated return, measuring 36 cm wide and 25 cm that makes it even larger than the Maxi Classic Handbag. The oversized silhouette is great for ladies (or men) on the hunt for a handbag that can hold a significant number of essentials, and this one in tweed is stunning matched with gold-tone hardware that’s chunky enough to be proportionate.
Twist the leather-interlaced CC closure, and you will find a deep (11 cm) inner compartment along with a zip patch pocket, great for essentials you want to keep safe. Using the bag is also relatively straightforward; you can carry it via its top handle, the extended gold chain, or sling it across the body for a relaxed and casual look.
