After Chanel’s viral heart-shaped bag and mini #CHANEL22, this new-in style looks set to be another hit for the French fashion house. Unofficially referred to as the Kelly Chanel or the Nano Chanel, it’s an archival bag making a comeback. Just in time for the #CHANELFallWinter season.
Essentially a mini top-handle bag, it features two leather-clad top handles and a long chain sling that’s not removable. The centrepiece of the bag is a CC logo clasp that adorns the front flap. And like the heart bags, it looks to be a one-off seasonal offering.
Officially, there are two variations. The first one comes in crinkled quilted lambskin leather and measures 19 cm by 13 cm by 7 cm. Affectionately termed the Mini Shopping Bag (SGD6650), the small darling appears in colours such as black, coral, pink and white.
Then there’s the smaller Clutch With Chain (SGD4420), which comes in at 12.5 cm by 8.3 cm by 4 cm. While the former comes under the bag category, you can find this under the SLG assortment. Quite fitting given its tiny size, this one has been spotted in a bold red jersey.
So there you have it. Another season, another adorable bag (or two) from the French fashion house. Which Nano Chanel are you eyeing?
