Chanel SLGs remain coveted favourites at the French fashion house. And here are some of the best styles to look forward to from the #CHANELSpringSummer pre-collection. While all identify as Clutches With Chain, you might notice slight differences that set them apart from one another. Love having choices? Consider these four different options.
Firstly, the lovely miniature modelled after Chanel’s iconic top handle bag. After downsizing to a 11.2 cm by 10.5 cm format, this lilac lambskin SLG gets light green trimmings for a fun twist. The strap also has an almost ombré-like effect, transitioning between shades of green and pink throughout. Opening the magnetic clasp reveals four card slots and a small rectangular mirror positioned directly under the front flap.
Notice the little knob on the chain on the green grained calfskin Clutch With Chain? Well, the bag community refers to this lovely mechanism as the ‘pearl crush’, and it comes in a delicate heart shape for #CHANELSpringSummer pre-collection. This clever feature allows for adjusting the chain to different lengths. So no fussing with fixed-length chains for petite ladies who often find them too long.
Another boxy option comes in smooth black lambskin with resin charms on the leather-interlaced chain strap. It has the CC logo, camellia charm and a row of heart-shape CC embellishments that add extra visual interest. Both styles measure 11 cm wide and 8.5 cm high with a simple interior and leather loop for your lippie.
The above trio of Clutch With Chain bags retail at between SGD3790 and SGD4560. Furthermore, you will be glad to find that the price for the top-handle style remains the same since its initial Spring-Summer 2022 launch. In other words, go forth and secure your piece now before potential price adjustments in future releases.
Finally, one of the four is not like the other. Not just in terms of its silhouette, but also because Chanel calls it the Phone Holder With Chain (SGD4860). At 17.2 cm by 10 cm, the horizontal profile fits small mobile devices like the #iPhone14. Other compartments hold cards and cash. Once everything is neatly in place, simply sling it comfortably over the shoulder for that fun hands-free look.
