Here to prove that the Vanity Case is going nowhere is the all-new #CHANELCruise version which comes in the most unexpected of makes: beech wood. Forget the classic versions in grained calfskin leather or soft lambskin leather, because this interesting bag is sure to knock every single one out of the park, making it the perfect choice for those who love a statement-making novelty bag that will only be available in limited quantities for the season.
Each bag comes in a cool beige beech wood complemented by thick black leather trim around the edges, and you will also find the leather-interlaced CC logo which sets the mood right in front. Chanel has created 2 different silhouettes for the exclusive Small Vanity Case, one coming in a rounded ‘hat box’ style while the other has a rectangular profile likened to a cute vintage lunch box.
You can opt to carry the bag via the chic wooden handle (yes, it’s made entirely out of solid beech wood), or choose to sling it over the shoulder by way of the accompanying gold-tone leather-interlaced strap. The interior is kept rather simple, save for a small diamond-quilted wallet attached to the interior wall. This saves you the need for carrying an additional SLG, giving you extra space for everything else like your AirPods, extra mask and even a small bottle of hand sanitiser for all your daily needs.
Do note that the #CHANELCruise collection is slated for arrival in local boutiques at Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Shopping Centre in the days or weeks to come, so you should head down and see if you can put yourself on the wait list for first dibs. Looking for something refreshingly different to add to your Vanity Case collection? This ‘wood’ be it for sure.
