CHANEL ENAMEL CC FLAP BAG

Chanel-Enamel-CC-Flap-Bag

Every season, we face a huge challenge when it comes to handbags. You see, there will always be one or more seasonal handbags that make us obsessed. For the Pre-Fall 2018 Collection, the Chanel Enamel CC Bag is one of those guilty triggers. Beautiful, timeless yet unique when comparing to other stunning handbags. So are you falling in love yet?

We have a story to tell about the Enamel CC Bag. We even doubt whether it’s a new style and not a ‘retro’ edition.

The Design

The Enamel CC Bag might not be entirely new, because we have seen a similar style in the past. This bag looks very much like the Chanel Hampton Bag, which was first-introduced in the Fall 2011 Collection and re-released for the Spring 2013 Collection. Since then, we haven’t seen this bag again and we thought it was discontinued.

So why the Hampton Bag? First let’s forget about the shape. The Hampton Bag and this new Enamel CC Bag are both crafted in diamond quilting. The Hampton Bag’s quilting is slightly different as it looks much larger, stronger and more vivid. The Enamel CC Bag’s quilting is fairly similar to the ones built on the classic handbags.

But most important – the Enamel CC Logo. This type of logo was first-seen on the Hampton Bag and it was supposed to be the signature component of the Hampton line. But it’s now designed on the Enamel CC Bag.

The Enamel CC Logo is truly a magnificent piece in fashion, because it looks like a solar eclipse.
The center is made with a colored logo while the edges are refined in gold hardware.

Overall, the body of the Enamel CC Bag looks timeless. The CC Logo however, makes it feel like a contemporary item. It comes with the signature woven chain strap and for this season, it’s made with lambskin.

And there is one more thing. This bag is designed with a bi-color double flap. The second layer flap behind the quilted flap is a bit longer. And so, when we close the bag, we can see the extension of the second flap on the outside.

The Interior

Chanel-Enamel-CC-Flap-Bag-3

The size of the interior depends on the size of the bag (this bag is available in two sizes). The Small Enamel CC Flap Bag is a bit smaller than the Small Classic Flap Bag.

The Small Enamel CC Flap Bag is measured 5.1’ x 8.3’ x 1.6’ inches while the Small Classic Flap Bag measures 5.7’ x 9.3’ x 2.6’ inches. The bag is certainly big enough to store all your daily essentials and it can be used as a day-to-evening bag. It’s not smaller than mini bag like a WOC.

For as far as we know, the bag appears to have two separated compartments.

The Prices And Sizes

The Chanel Small Enamel CC Flap Bag has the style code A57275, it measures 5.1’ x 8.3’ x 1.6’ inches and is priced at $4500 USD, €3900 euro, £3500 GBP, $6650 SGD, $35700 HKD, $6490 AUD, ¥547560 JPY, $5700 CAD, ₩5,440,000 WON.

There is also a medium size (and perhaps a large size). We don’t have information about those sizes yet. If we have more info, we will update this post.

CHANEL GABRIELLE BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Gabrielle-Bag-Adcampaign-9

From the Reissue 2.55 to the Boy Chanel, most of Chanel’s iconic handbags are inspired by the founder Coco Chanel. It’s usually something that Coco had experienced or observed during her lifetime that brought the ideas to the table. The Boy Bag for example, was created based on Coco’s boyish attitude. And as Karl Lagerfeld said: ‘she picked this up from Boy Cape, which as the love of the love’.

The Story

The latest Chanel Gabrielle Bag is crafted to pay homage to Madame Coco. According to Karl Lagerfeld, everyone called the Chanel founder Coco, but that was not her real name. Her real name was Gabrielle and this is the perfect name for a bag that has all the codes of Chanel.

The Gabrielle Bag has been heavily advertised and even got its own space on the Chanel website. It looks like this bag is determined to become the next iconic and might even compete against the famous Boy Chanel Bag.

The Design

The Reissue 2.55 was re-made to bring the art from the past back to life. But the Gabrielle Bag is really made for the future. It’s said that the bag is inspired by Virtual Reality Goggles and vintage binocular cases that men wear at the racecourse. The last part matches perfectly to the philosophy of Coco Chanel, because the quilting on the 2.55 Bag was also inspired by quilted jackets of jockey players. Coco knew very well how to get inspiration from men’s fashion.

And there are multiple ways to carry the bag. You can sling it on your shoulder, throw it over your shoulder, wrap the chain so you can tote it or change it to a fanny pack by looping the leather fixings. The collection is truly unique because of the different shapes that are available. There is an backpack, an hobo, a tote bag and an drawstring edition.

At WWD, Karl Largerfeld said that the Gabrielle Bag is meant to be worn in many different circumstances and it’s not very feminine in the sense of being Chichi. Which brings us to the next topic.

Unisex

Chanel's Gabrielle handbag ad campaign

Chanel has just broken the record and all the rules of its tradition. Pharrell Williams has been participating in an ad campaign featuring the Chanel Gabrielle Bag. He is now the first man to be seen with a Chanel bag ad in the house’s 108 year of existence.

So what does this mean? The house wants to tap into the men’s fashion market by promoting the Chanel Gabrielle Bag as a unisex bag. So what do you think about that? Put your thoughts in the comment section.

Chanel introduces a string of chic new Emojis for iPhone users

Categories:Fashion


The label’s tech advent of sorts is in line with the celebration of its new Rouge Coco gloss release earlier in the year. Inside the sticker collection, one can find a pink birthday cake, a Chanel airplane, and a series of other Chanel makeup products. The quirk-list also includes a thumbs up sign that dons a classic red nail-enamel, an adorable Chanel gift box and perfect speech balloons that read words like CUTE, OMG and PLEASE.

If like us, you too find the Chanel emojis irresistibly appealing, you could download the whole list here. After all, what better way to posh up those e-convo’s than using these chic little stickers amidst the boring ramble of words. The emoticons are currently available for download and use only on the iPhone. Looks like Android users have some waiting to do before they can finally lay their hands (well, fingers in this case) on these exciting emojis!

Fall-Winter 2017 Womens Chanel Bags

Categories:Other Brands

‘Let Chanel surprise you’ was one of the nuggets I got from Chanel’s President of Fashion, Bruno Pavlovsky, when we sat down for an exclusive interview (more on that that later) moments before Chanel’s recent Fall-Winter 2017 runway presentation in Paris’ Grand Palais last week. And can I just say, it wasn’t just surprise I felt when the show started; it was the full-on jaw-dropping what-kind-of-sorcery-is-this surprise that had my goosebumps tingling with excitement.

And as far as greatest show sets ever created, this would surely be one that gets remembered for generations to come, with Chanel doing what it always does best: presenting their RTW collections in the most theatrical of presentations. Standing almost as tall as the 147 feet glass domed ceiling, the centrepiece of the entire show was the Chanel-branded rocket which ‘lifted off’ almost 30 feet at the end of the show. There was a countdown, there was lots of smoke, there were oohs and aahs aplenty as all 2600 guests strained themselves silly to snap the best image they could on their smartphones.

IMAGES: CHANEL

Then there were the bags, and there were plenty, from the novelty to the functional. From the smallest of clutches in the shape of planets and rockets, to large everyday bags in the form of backpacks and totes, there will definitely be something for everyone as far as function/size/style are concerned. There were also familiar favourites, from the Boy Chanelgiven a sprinkling of ‘stars’ in the chevron weave to the Gabrielle in new colours, from shades of pink to iridescent hues.

On my own personal wishlist? The rocket, the oversized tote and of course, that silver backpack but because it’s way too early to tell if a) they will make it into production, or b) how much they will actually cost, this boy will just have to dream (and continue to have goosebumps) whenever he relives the moment by rewatching the show on Youtube.
