Chanel: It’s Not Just Gold, It’s Beige

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: CHANEL

When you think of Chanel’s colour beige, you would typically picture their compact powder cases that bear the sandy, powdery hue we’ve all grown to know and love. A colour much loved by Coco Chanel herself, it was the colour of her quilted suede cushions, and also a colour she used liberally at her Rue Cambon boutique. A gorgeous neutral that does not overpower and best described as the shade between pink and yellow, it naturally led to the French luxury label creating their own precious alloy back in 2014 that’s still exclusive to them today; it’s simply known as Beige Gold.

For days when you find the traditional yellow gold too jarring, white gold far too plain, or even rose gold being too pink (yes, I’ve heard that before), Beige Gold is that perfect in-between too hard and too soft, a beautiful neutral like no other. Perfect for the lady who prefers to carry off the accessory (instead of letting the accessory overpower her), Beige Gold would be that colour of choice. Besides a selection of Coco Crush fine jewellery that it comes in, this subtle, glimmering hue is also now found on a selection of Chanel’s fine timepieces as well.

The perfect colour that surrounds the mother of pearl or opaline dials on the timepieces, Beige Gold carries a certain charm to it, with Coco Chanel declaring it one of her favourite colours saying, ‘It’s my colour and will always and forever be fashionable.’

And with timeless watches encased with Beige Gold crowns, from the Première to the Boy.Friend and even the masterpiece that is Monsieur de Chanel, let it be your colour of choice and one that you’ll find exclusively at Chanel Watches & Fine Jewellery today.

BOY CHANEL CRACKED METALLIC BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Boy-Chanel-Cracked-Metallic-Bag

What’s the Boy Bag? It’s a bold, classic statement maker. The Boy has an unexplainable charisma – when you carry it down town, people with no knowledge about high fashion will still stare at your bag. The Classic Quilted Boy Bag is an effortless bragger, but there is another boy that goes beyond that. This Boy is not only beautiful, but it shines like a star. And perhaps it’s a star. Meet the Boy Chanel Crackled Metallic Flap Bag from the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection.

The Boy is so famous that I need no introduction. It’s made with diamond quilting in the center and striped design on the edges; it comes with the iconic boy lock as well as strong and large chain strap. But for this season, Chanel picked new leather that slightly changed the feel and look. It’s now crafted in metallic calfskin that made the bag shine. And if you look closer, the leather is a bit cracked, like used, almost similar like the iconic Reissue 2.55 Bag.

The cracked leather design matches like twins with the vintage-looking Boy Clasp. The color, hardware and the leather combined create a daring and straightforward design. Even on the picture, it already screams luxury.

For those that are interested, the style code for the small size is A67085, the size is measured 4.7’ x 7.8’ x 2.7’ inches and its priced at $4300 USD, €3660 euro, £3200 GBP, $5710 SGD, $28700 HKD, ¥437400 JPY, ¥28300 CNY, $4925 CAD via Chanel boutiques.

For those that wants to know more about the pricing. This metallic Boy is as expensive as the normal calfskin or caviar leather. It has the same price tag as the non-metallic Boy Bags. Check out the prices for the other sizes here: Chanel Boy Bag Prices.

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.
