Just when you thought Chanel had done it all as far as its extensive SLG range is concerned, the French luxury house introduced a brand new design known as the Classic Flap Phone Holder With Chain that’s part of their #CHANELSpringSummer line-up. Entirely unique in its own right, it is neither a wallet nor a clutch, but rather one that comes with a different twist.
Measuring 17.5 cm wide and 11 cm high, this SLG is essentially 2 different pouches combined into one. In the front, you will find elements taken from the Classic Flap (hence the name), featuring the diamond-quilted exterior and CC buckle which will open to reveal a compartment for sliding your mobile phone within. The back pocket, on the other hand, can be accessed via a top zip closure, and you will find 9 slip pockets for storing cards, cash, and the like. There’s also a second zip pocket tucked inside, which is great for those who need even more storage options.
Once everything is kept neatly in place, you can sling this little number effortlessly across the body, making this your go-to companion for days when you need a simple grab-and-go bag. There are at least 2 designs available for the season, starting with the one in blue lambskin that’s priced at SGD3860. The second one is more decorated, finished with gold motifs that come in the shape of the camellia, stars and even the iconic N°5 perfume bottle. Priced slightly higher at SGD4960, it comes in black lambskin that’s the standout piece for #CHANELSpringSummer.
