When is a bag not a bag? When it is a jewellery box pretending to be a bag. From Balenciaga’s Fall-Winter 2022 line-up, the structured eight-sided bags are made out of shiny box calfskin.
Shaped like a jewellery box, the Cheri comes in two sizes. Starting with the Cheri XS Clutch Box (SGD1990), it measures 14 cm wide and 12 cm high. With an inner satin pocket with its own drawstring closure, think of it as a tiny minaudière that will hold several small essentials for evenings out.
The larger size is the Cheri Phone Clutch Box (SGD2150), significantly larger at 20 cm by 10 cm. Opening via the magnetic clasp, this roomier clutch comes with a smooth satin-lined interior. A patch pocket within keeps your cards, wallet and small beauty essentials safe and secure.
Perfect for holding within the palm of your hands, the Cheri is for the individual who loves the unexpected, the quirky and the different. And this
jewellery box clutch is definitely it.
