For #CHANELFallWinter, monochrome makes a return once again in the mini bags department. The first fashion house to make ‘smaller than small’ great again, this season includes new Clutches With Chain SLGs. The boxy silhouette comes in classic black and white, two of the five emblematic shades of Chanel (besides beige, gold and red).
While both SLGs have the same name (because Chanel prefers to give them generic names), they carry slight differences in terms of their make. The Clutch With Chain in white (SGD5330) features shiny crumpled calfskin with ruthenium-finish hardware. Measuring 17 cm by 9.5 cm by 8 cm, its roomy interior packs three card slots, a lipstick holder and a rectangular vanity mirror.
The Clutch With Chain in black (SGD5180), on the other hand, is much slimmer at 16.7 cm by 10 cm by 4.4 cm. However, what it lacks in terms of depth, it more than makes up for with the dressy top handle. In resin and gold-tone metal, it showcases two Chanel icons: the precious camellia and CC logo on lambskin leather.

Love the detailed handle but prefer it on a delicate pink accessory? Chanel also introduces the Flap Phone Holder With Chain (SGD6010). Measuring 17.2 cm by 10 cm by 4.2 cm, it fits mobile devices like the new iPhones while offering extra space for cards and cash in the interior zip pocket.
