If you have been loving Chanel’s #CHANELMetiersdArt offerings so far, then there’s one more you should definitely check out. The beauty of it lies in the cylindrical shape, flanked by gold-tone hardware at the sides that converts it into a minaudière for evenings and special occasions. Not only does it add an elevated look to the SLG, its ‘boxy’ shape gives it additional structure as well, making it a solid accessory (quite literally) that’s quite different from the full leather SLGs on offer lately that come with long slings.
You will find it available in 2 finishes, the first being lambskin leather which is offered in signature Chanel colours like black and burgundy. The second one would be velvet, further decorated with camellia embroidery all over the front and back. Aside from the classic shade of black, the velvet one will also come in pink, which pairs beautifully with the gold-tone metallic hardware.
Prices start from SGD3700 for velvet ones before going up to SGD3850 for the ones in lambskin leather, all of which are available at Chanel boutiques in Singapore at Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Shopping Centre. Should you need a size reference, the Jewel Card Holder With Chain measures 11 cm wide and approximately 6.5 cm high, giving you a compact-sized SLG that’s perfect for tiny trinkets.
