Call it charming, quirky or all-around adorable, this is Chanel’s current take on the minaudière of the season. Coming in miniature proportions at just 12 cm wide and 12 cm high, the purse has two compartments for your essentials, each secured with individual CC lock elements.
The first is the signature turn-lock mechanism in gold-tone metallic hardware, which you’ll find on the lambskin flap in front. Second, the main section within the wooden frame upper opens to a leather-lined interior for several bits and bobs. The natural wood detailing not often seen on Chanel leather goods makes this full-leather offering even more special.
Perfect for fun evenings out, you can wear it over the shoulder via the leather-interlaced chain strap. Or just clutch it in the palm of your hand.
Simply referred to it as the ‘small clutch’ (because seasonal specials don’t get a fancy name), it retails at SGD9010. Just take your pick from either black or light beige lambskin leather.
