When Virginie Viard presented the #CHANELCruise collection in Monte Carlo earlier this year, fashion lovers got a real treat, with a spectacular selection of RTW and leather goods that embody the French Riviera spirit to perfection.
These include playful minaudières in the shape of slot machines and racing helmets with an exaggerated, over-the-top effect. Monte Carlo is famous for casinos and car races, after all. The #CHANELCruise collection also featured a trio of Clutch With Chain miniatures under the SLG range.
Reminiscent of poker chips, they showcase the ‘Chanel 5 Paris’ logo in the middle. Crafted in enamel, with quilted lambskin at the sides, their dainty proportions measure 7.5 cm by 7.5 cm. In addition, a long leather-interlaced chain allows you to sling them across the body like whimsical accessories.
Each piece opens to reveal a mirrored compartment for all your touch-ups on the go. To be sure, it serves as more of a decorative piece rather than a functional bag or SLG. Retailing at SGD6860, these miniature accessories come in Black, Green and Red.
The #CHANELCruise Clutch With Chain miniatures come with gold-tone metal hardware for extra shine. Aside from making a fashion statement, these ‘poker chips’ might turn out to be your lucky charm as well.
