Ever wondered what happens when Chanel transforms its signature beauty compact into a leather minaudière? Well, you’re looking at it right now, a charming 14 cm by 13 cm by 5.5 cm rendition in diamond-quilted lambskin leather.
Whether you love the deep dark black or prefer a pure white, Chanel has got you covered with two exciting variations paired with gold-tone hardware.
Each bag opens to reveal a red leather interior (yes, the same deep rich shade found within your Classic Handbag) with little pockets on either side. There’s a small leather slot with a mirror on one side, while the other includes a button-down flap pocket and a lipstick holder to keep everything in place.
Another interesting bit to know? While most evening bags from Chanel typically come with a leather-interlaced chain, this particular bag (SGD8810) has a short matching top handle instead.
The latter can also be rotated downwards to make it easier to reach for your essentials, or you can always leave it upright for full effect.
Keen to get your hands on one? Do keep an eye out for this exciting new style, along with the myriad of heart-shaped bags and other novelties that will all be launching as part of the #CHANELSpringSummer collection.
