Chanel-Pearl-Quilted-WOC

It’s quite obvious that Chanel is using pearls to poke our addiction in this season and we’re falling for it. Of course we mean falling in love. So you have the Chanel Pearl Wallet On chain Bag, which is a Chanel WOC adorned with pearls on chain and CC logo. And now we’re introducing the Chanel Pearl Quilted WOC, which is another beauty from the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection.

We’ve seen a lot of pearl embellished handbags like the Westminster Bag and the Pearly Bag, but we’ve never seen a pearl quilted design before. The pearls are crafted not only in the front, but also on the top and the back. The bag is made in Velvet and it’s a very luxurious and soft material. The classic color black enhances the white pearl’s presence; creating a busy but elegant style. The interlocking CC logo is adorned with pearls as well, but they’re much smaller and cuter. The WOC finishes with the classic woven chain strap for the ultimate lady look.

For those that are not familiar with Chanel WOCs, the interior is made with six credit card slots, central compartment for all your necessities and a zip pocket. Style code A84273, measuring 12.3 x 19.2 x 3.5 cm, priced at $2600 USD, £2210 GBP, €2665 euro, $3275 CAD, $21000 HKD, $4230 SGD, ¥315360 JPY, ¥20600 CNY via Chanel boutiques.

Chanel Métiers d’Art: Small Is Beautiful

Categories:Other Brands

ELEN WINATA FOR CHANEL

With 8 collections every year, Chanel has long devoted one to Métiers d’Art, in short, Chanel’s way of preserving years of craftsmanship and heritage. Under its Paraffection subsidiary, Chanel now has 9 different old-world ateliers in their fold, each one specialising in a different craft that might have otherwise been lost to the world if not for the French luxury house’s patronage.

Through each collection, the ateliers get to showcase their brilliant skills and expert craftsmanship that includes everything from the use of expert embroidery to working with feathers; some specialise in textiles like tweed, others make the best shoes money can buy. Yes, the #ParisCosmopolite RTW, bags and accessories that you’ll now find at Chanel’s first Ephemeral Boutique at Marina Bay Sands is all from the Métiers d’Art collection, and this would be your chance to head on down and admire these beautifully crafted pieces up-close.

With some of them having been around for over a hundred years, the 9 ateliers still focus on traditional craftsmanship that takes painstaking hours often worked only by hand. And by safeguarding these 9 ateliers, Chanel is trying to ensure that even into the distant future, these age-old crafts will still be around for generations to enjoy into the future.

And because covering all 9 ateliers in one post would be too intensive, we’ll start with 3 that focus on the ‘small is beautiful’, starting with Desrues, Goosens and Lemarie. These 3 different ateliers produce the small, often overlooked pieces that one doesn’t often pay much attention to, but because of this trio, the ordinary can be made extraordinary.

Desrues 
Found in 1929, this is the atelier that is responsible for creating, chiselling, gilding, sculpting, even polishing buttons. Yes, buttons. With almost 4000 buttons produced daily, Desrues handles the creation of each individual piece, starting with a prototype before going into production once the final design is approved. And because it is for Chanel, each button is always beautifully adorned, the end result often little works of art that you’ll find used on everything from RTW to bags, even shoes and accessories if the design calls for some button detailing.

Goosens
A jewellery house founded in 1950, it is one renowned for its expertise in working with metals that includes bronze, silver and gold. Gabrielle Chanel loved the way founder Robert Goosen’s reinterpreted jewellery were inspired by great eras of antiquity (think Byzantium and Egypt) and engaged him to produce metalwork for the house, constantly pushing him to play with the ambiguity of real and fake, all of which are shown beautifully through his gorgeous metalwork. Now helmed by Patrick – Robert’s son, many of the fancy jewellery pieces you find at Chanel today that has the most intricate of metalwork probably came from the Goosensworkshop.

Lemarié
Wonder where all those iconic camellia brooches you know and love come from? Founded in 1880, the camellias that we have all come to associate Chanel with were first handmade by Lemarié. Commissioned by Gabrielle Chanel herself in the 1960s, this atelier specialises in creating pieces that have come in almost every material you can imagine, from chiffon to denim, leather, silk and even velvet, just to name a few. Don’t be fooled by the seemingly simple flower; it takes about 1 hour just to shape its 16 petals by hand, and those are just the basic ones. So the next time you add a camellia brooch to your collection, take time to appreciate the amount of handiwork that goes into each piece.

And there you have it, a camellia brooch that can elevate any look, bold metal jewellery that’s always almost statement-making, intricate buttons on a tweed jacket that’s the perfect finishing touch, these 3 ateliers also teach us a simple fact. No matter how small each part may seem, every piece has its part to play in making the final product look beautiful and extraordinary, the small made beautiful.

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-CC-Perforated-Bag-2

“In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.” Coco Chanel perfectly said it and up until now, these words are still relevant and echo through time. Heeding the advice of their founder, the French fashion powerhouse launched its unique Chanel CC Perforated Bag during its Spring Summer 2016 Collection Act 1.

Made from grained calfskin leather and paired with lacquered silver-tone metal hardware, this Chanel Bag is a design that could be best described as “out of the box.” Urbanely refined, this bag features a diamond perforated design. Its sophisticated shape on the other hand resembles that of an ole good saddle bag. It also features the interlocking CC clasp in the lower middle portion for an added sense of chic and security at the same time.

With multi-functionality in mind, the Chanel CC Perforated Bag also boasts of an interlocking chained shoulder strap so you can effortlessly carry it in whatever style you want: shoulder or across the body carrying.

Pair it over your monochromatic dresses or even over your printed and floral dresses and you’ll be stylishly chic. Style code A93779, measuring 7.1” x 7.9” x 2” inches, priced at $2800 USD, €2490 euro, £2240 GBP, $4000 SGD, $20400 HKD, $3820 AUD, ¥305640 JPY, ¥19300 CNY via Chanel boutiques.

Chanel WOC (Wallet On Chain) Bag

Categories:Other Brands

I remember when I first heard of the Chanel WOC; I also remember it took me a while (maybe longer than I’d like to admit) to figure out “WOC” stood for “Wallet On Chain.” Chanel isn’t the only brand to make a WOC, but it’s arguably the brand most closely associated with the popular style, and much like many other Chanel pieces, the brand does its WOC oh so well.

[Editor’s Note: This post was originally published on October 6, 2015]

Chanel-WOC-What-Fits-2

I know many people who own a Chanel Wallet on Chain and have had many friends ask me if that should be their first Chanel purchase. The next question I’m often asked is if the Chanel WOC is really that great and usable, and the best way to answer that question is to tell you exactly what fits inside of it.

Chanel-WOC-What-Fits-3

Once you know what fits inside of the relatively petite Chanel WOC, it’s a lot easier to decide if the bag will be a good fit for your lifestyle. What I can tell you is this bag multitasks as a wallet, clutch and small crossbody bag, and it’s come in handy often for me and so many others. If you want to be part of the Chanel WOC fan club, look no further than the PurseForum.

Chanel-WOC-What-Fits-4

The Chanel WOC measures 4.9″ x 7.5″ x 1.4″. These dimensions appear small, but the bag ends up fitting much more than you expect. There are, of course, plenty of versions; pricing starts at $1,900 for leather. The version I have is the Chanel Stingray WOC, which currently costs $4,000. There is also a slightly smaller size of this bag, 4.5″ x 7.5″ x 1.6″ that offers a removable chain strap and costs $3,400.

Chanel-WOC-What-Fits-5

Here is what fits in the Chanel WOC:

– iPhone 6+
– Alligator card case from Lambertson Truex
– Louis Vuitton keychain and house key
– Car key
– Fresh Sugar lipgloss in Tulip | $22.50 via Sephora
– Gin Gins (I always have these!!) | $18.40 via Amazon
– Cash
– Credit Cards and other cards
