The Chanel 19 Handbag is the epitome of maximalist fashion amongst its family of siblings. Created by Virginie Viard, it is simply named after its year of creation in 2019. The larger-than-life flap bag takes on a big personality with a chunky tri-coloured chain strap in a mix of silver, aged-gold and ruthenium metallic finishes. The large curb chain handle further adds to its charm, allowing you to hold the flap bag by hand.
A leather-interlaced CC logo makes for the perfect centrepiece. It doubles up as the bag’s twist-lock closure, rounding it up as a solid good-looker for daily use. Not forgetting the oversized quilting effect that keeps it slightly puffy and supple. This tactile element is present on the new corduroy versions appearing in Chanel’s Fall-Winter 2022 pre-collection.
The Chanel 19 Handbag (SGD7930) measures 26 cm wide and 16 cm high. Look forward to Light Blue and Light Green corduroy with a chic gold-tone CC logo and matching curb handle. Of course, the tri-coloured chain remains a key element of the Chanel 19 Handbag. Leather matching the bag’s colour interlaces each strap.
Prefer a roomier size? The Chanel 19 Large Handbag (SGD8770) measuring 30 cm by 20 cm will fit more items within. It comes in Fuchsia corduroy for a sassy touch.
A fun alternative to the full-leather Chanel 19, these corduroy styles look set on being a comfy addition to your bag collection.
