Chanel-Trendy-CC-Flap-Bag

For all the Chanel lovers out there, take a deep breath and be ready as the Chanel Trendy CC Flap Bag is here to change your everyday styling edits.

The fame of the Chanel Trendy CC Bag is never-ending and we’ve always loved the tote bag edition. But for the Spring Summer 2017 Collection something magical happened. A new style has been born; please meet the Chanel Trendy CC Flap Bag.

Made from genuine lambskin leather with the thick diamond quilting that we’ve grown to love, this Chanel Trendy CC Flap Bag is truly a dream come true. So let’s take a closer and more detailed look.

This stylish Chanel bag features the elegant golden plate on the top with the house’s signature on it, which is a descriptive of the Trendy CC Bag. The Flap Bag version doesn’t come with handles, but instead a chain strap. At the side, you can see that the bag is much thinner to avoid heavy carrying. And of course, it comes with the famous CC clasp and interwoven chain link for shoulder carrying

Measuring 6.9” x 10.2” x 2.4” inches, priced $4500 USD, €3360 euro, £3030 GBP, $5400 sGD, $28200 HKD, $5150 AUD, ¥457920 JPY, ¥26000 CNY via Chanel boutiques.

Céline S/S17 Twisted Cabas

Other Brands

IMAGE: JSK FOR CÉLINE

If there’s one thing Céline is famous for (well, besides making RTW women can’t resist and elevating humble footwear like skate sneakers to a whole new level), it’s their bags which are almost always original creations that have become icons in their own right. From the Classic and the Luggage to the Trapeze and even those first generation Cabas totes, they were (and still are) all hits the day they were launched.

In other words, whenever you’re looking for a new bag (or in a vicinity of a Céline boutique), you walk in for a look, no questions asked. And while you’re there, do check out the Twisted Cabas that was launched with theFall-Winter 2015 collection. A year and a half on, it’s still very on-trend, a generously shaped wide-mouthed day bag that tapers down into an envelope bottom.

Constructed with the supplest of calfskins, it’s soft and surprisingly lightweight, especially when you consider the fact that it’s entirely made of leather. Topped with a flat handle that’s also pretty wide (which also means it won’t slip off your shoulder that easily), the reason it looks twisted is due to its intentional off-centred position of the handle, a design quirk that’s so uniquely Céline.

Available in a Large size (which I own and might I add, love), today’s focus falls solely on the Small sizes from S/S17 collection that come in a variety of contrasting colour combinations that are truly irresistible (click here to see them all online via Céline). Priced at SGD2800 apiece, the 37 cm by 26.5 cm shoulder bag will become your favourite day-to-day carryall, because you’ll quite literally be able to carry all (and then some) in this beautiful little number.

Prada-Bowling-Ribbon-Bag

Prada is definitely setting the bar higher when it comes to making fashionably chic bags and the Prada Bowling Ribbon Bag is of no exception.

This Prada accessory also features practicality and multi-functionality with its double leather handle for easy hand carrying and a detachable leather shoulder strap for shoulder and cross body carrying. For an added sense of security, it has a zipper closure to keep your things safe and sound.

CHANEL FALL WINTER RUNWAY BAG

Other Brands


Just when you think Karl Lagerfeld is going to zig, he zags. The legendary creative director has spent half a decade showing his Chanel collections in ever-more-grandiose stage settings in the Grand Palais, ranging from an arctic tundra complete with trucked-in iceberg chunk to a Chanel-themed supermarket filled with branded items that weren't even part of the collection. For Chanel Fall 2016, though, Lagerfeld took the brand to the opposite extreme.

Chanel's simple, pared-down, front-row-only runway show where people simply sat atop couture era-inspired gold chairs and watched more than 90 looks pass in front of them. Like the show itself, the clothes and bags didn't have any over-arching pop cultural theme to guide their aesthetic details; instead, they appeared to be influenced by the creation of clothing in and of itself, with big leather stitches adorning some bags' gussets and plenty of work-intensive tweeds. The collection's novelty minaudiere, which has become an every-show signature for the brand, also pointed in that direction: it took the form of an oversized spool of thread, complete with a Chanel logo charm hanging from its loose end.

Lagerfeld's intent seemed to be to draw attention back to the clothes and accessories themselves and the immaculate craftsmanship that goes into them, and as he usually does, he succeeded.

Imagine if you would, a 30 cm ruler, you know, the type we used in school when we were kids. Actually, it was more like the ones our teachers used. On our knuckles. But this post isn’t about that; it’s about the ruler and Chanel’s smallest bags from their new Fall-Winter 2016 collection, which should be in local stores by now.

IMAGE: CHANEL

If you recall, Karl Lagerfeld had some models coming down the runway with tinyBoy Chanel bags attached to their belts, and given the measurements that I’ve got, you could stack 3 of these bags on each other and they wouldn’t even reach the top of the ruler. Yes, that’s how tiny they are. Measuring just 9.5 cm in height by 15 cm across, they could be (but correct me if I’m wrong) Chanel’s smallest Boy Chanelbags ever made, with a depth of just 7 cm.

And because I’m a huge fan of #smallerthansmall, I say yay since it’s exactly the type of thing I would want in my collection, a tiny clutch for a night out, mostly hand-held though you could also wear it across the shoulder via its metal chainlink sling. Priced at SGD5590 and SGD9160 for the two you see above placed top and bottom respectively, I’m guessing the latter’s price could be due in part to the intense braided tweed detailing that’s happening on the front flap.

For those of you who prefer something a little more classic but still fun, there’s the F/W16 Flap Bag that comes with a double peace sign. Also tiny (17 cm across by 10 cm in height), this stunningly red lambskin leather number will set you back by justSGD4450. Last, but by no means least, one of the novelty bags of the season, a ‘sewing box’ resin minaudière that I covered previously here. I didn’t have its retail price then, but for those who are keen, it is priced at SGD15,860.

A little talk about the upcoming seasonal bag. Here’s one to consider – painted in white and adorned with quilted pattern on the cover except for the flap. The flap is made in soft and smooth leather. Well, it has everything you need to flaunt.

Mulberry Willow Leather Tote And Iconic Bags

Other Brands

Going Back in Time

I may not have been around for the Swinging ‘60s (I’m not that old!), but there’s a lot to love about the generation – Twiggy, white go-go boots, Balenciaga, the Beatles, Catherine Deneuve in Belle du Jour, and of course, bags! This was the decade when women finally broke out of the tweed jacket/chain bag combo and embraced their personal style. See which iconic pieces they did it with…Mulberry Willow Leather Tote

Mulberry’s Willow is the ultimate office to evening accessory – namely because it’s two in one (a work tote and an envelope clutch)! Sometimes a bag needs more flash for me to fall in love, yet here the function is what has me oohing and ahhing. Bring the tote to work, then at the end of the day, remove the front pouch with a couple of quick zips and you’re ready to play. It’s not one of those tiny, useless pouches, either – the generous size makes it a great choice even for daytime. Zipper edges give the clutch a unique look on its own, but keep in mind that you can’t carry the tote without it reattached (it would look like something’s missing). Since Kate Moss debuted the first Willow last year, it’s become available in a number of delicious hues, and I’m going with mushroom. The neutral will look great year-round, making an already versatile bag even more wearable! Going Back in Time

Psychedelic Pucci Bag
You didn’t need to take LSD in the ‘60s to have a psychedelic experience – you just needed to buy a Pucci ! Rainbow velvet bags are hard to come by these days, so for a Frugal find, try Moyna’s colorful sequined clutch.


Going Back in Time

Courrèges Mod Bag

André Courrèges helped propel the Mod trend to full-on mania with his 1964 “Space Age” collection – think bright colors, geometric shapes, and PVC mini skirts (he and Mary Quant both claim to have invented the mini!). This orange tote is an update on one of his best-selling bags from the time. For a modern take on the style, check out Furla’s rubber satchel.
Going Back in Time


Mary Quant Flower Bag

This was the flower power generation – blossoms flourished all throughout fashion. The daisy was Mary Quant’s logo, but Betsey Johnson (herself a member of Andy Warhol’s Factory scene) is also no stranger to florals. Satisfy your inner flower child with her Having a Field Daisy bag.

Going Back in Time

Paco Rabanne Chainmail Bag
Chainmail may not be the most sensible thing to design a bag out of, but the success of Paco Rabanne’s Le 69 – named for the year it was released – was undeniable. If it’s a little too hefty for you (in price and weight), Laura B has a Disco bag alternative with some added python for good measure.
