What do these 4 beautiful SLGs have in common? Well, aside from being part of the #CHANELFallWinter collection, they are all referred to as ‘wallet on chain’ bags over at Chanel (which is basically exactly as described, usually a larger format wallet that comes with a long chain to allow one to wear it across the body), and come in the same boxy dimensions that measure 19.2 cm wide and 12.3 cm high.
And while they all come in the same size, they all have slight twists in terms of colour, materials and of course, hardware, so it might be a a tough choice narrowing it down just to one for you.
Still, here’s a quick run-through of all 4 styles in a clockwise fashion, starting with the Wallet On Chain (SGD4720) which comes in iridescent calfskin leather. A new finish launched for the season, this shimmery-shiny WOC even comes with an extra bow-tied leather detail, an elegant twist that elevates the classic silhouette to a whole new level. Next (to the right) is the Chanel 19 Wallet On Chain (SGD5780) in glossy calfskin leather, another signature style paired with chunky lacquered metal unique to the Chanel 19 family of bags and leather goods.
Then there’s the hot favourite Classic Wallet On Chain (SGD4490) in metallic calfskin that has the prettiest ombré gradient. What’s more, even the tiny CC logo comes in that same gradient finish on the hardware, giving you the unicorn-of-the-season like no other. There’s also the Boy Chanel Wallet On Chain (SGD4370) which returns in the delicate light blue lambskin leather. Complete with ruthenium-finished metal for those who love an androgynous twist, this is one not to be missed if you’re a fan of the sleek and cool Boy Chanel.
