It’s black, it’s white. It’s the new Mini Messenger from Chanel that looks set on becoming a hot favourite for the season. Part of the #CHANELSpringSummer collection, you can think of it as a really different reinterpretation of the Classic Flap, this time finished with curved corners and a generous base that makes it a lovely piece to add to any bag collection.
The Mini Messenger ticks all the right boxes of a Chanel handbag, from the diamond-quilted pattern front and back to the CC clasp doubling up as the logo in front, as well as the gold-tone hardware for that extra luxurious touch. Measuring 20 cm wide and 15 cm high, the Mini Messenger is anything but mini, and it also has a 6.5 cm base which is pretty deep for its size. You can find two compartments (one main and another accordion-like pocket in front) after lifting the front flap, as well as a smaller slot for cards and the like.
Now, the best part about the bag has got to be the shoulder strap. While classic Chanel bags are not known to have an adjustable feature, the Mini Messenger can be lengthened or shortened as you please, with 5 different holes on the leather strap to give it added versatility. This is a great feature that will appeal to ladies (and even men) with different heights, allowing you to sling it over the shoulder or across the body with ease. Priced at SGD6050 each, this is the bag for you if you have been looking for a classic with a twist.
