CHANEL STITCHED QUILTED ZIP AROUND WALLETS WITH TASSEL

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Stitch-Quilted-Zip-Around-Wallets-with-Tassel

The Chanel Stitched Quilted Zip Around Wallets is from the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection. There have been two styles with the same design. The first one is the WOC version and there is also a pouch version, which has the same shape like the Chanel O Case.

A new design, but it won’t be here forever. After the season is over, this bag might be discontinued. So here is a chance to grab a limited edition wallet.

The oversized quilted is not overwhelming, but it’s notable and eye-catching. The quilting is highlighted with vivid stitches. The interlocking CC logo is also a new design; it’s covered with little stripes on the edges. It’s refined with a boho-chic tassel with fringes. This tassel is attached to the zipper, which includes a leather zip in the same color as the bag.

Made from lambskin – even tough this leather is fragile, but it’s extremely soft. Lambskin is okay as long as you slip it right back into your bag, where it’s safe and sound. It comes in two sizes and different colors. Check out the details below:

Introducing Senreve Handbags

Categories:Other Brands

Back in February, we covered 10 brands to watch for 2017 and Senreve was on the list. Before that, I hadn’t heard much about this San Francisco-based brand, and that’s not surprising—Senreve is only eight months old. (I remember the brand’s age because it’s the same as Millie’s age!) In its short life, Senreve has already made its way into the hearts of many, myself included, and I’ve been talking with the brand to learn more about their designs.

Though based in San Francisco, Senreve bags are handcrafted in Italy by Tuscan artisans with 100% Italian leather. Senreve artisans have worked with top luxury brands for more than a combined fifty years, and it shows: the bags are incredibly well-made, the leather is sturdy yet supple and structured yet lightweight, and it’s also both durable and water-resistant.

When it comes to the final product, after talking to the founders multiple times, it stood out that one of their focal points is usability of their bags. Each bag, each compartment and each measurement is made with purpose. The idea behind the line is that a woman shouldn’t have to choose between a bag that looks good and one that works well.

crossbody in blush – $495

The exterior of each bag is clean, logo-free, and sleek while the interior is impeccably made and planned out as well. The pale blue stain-resistant microsuede interior is the perfect color to find all of your items (I find that black interiors are so hard to hunt around in). Many bags that have microsuede lining wind up being heavy, but these bags are far from that. Though the leather exterior and the microsuede interior seem like they could leave you with a cumbersome bag, it is quite the opposite. And the interior is all about usability and functionality. My favorite bag from the line, the Senreve Maestra, has an interior laptop compartment that fits my 13″ MacBook Pro perfectly. As far as the interior goes, there are 7 different compartments, including the padded laptop sleeve with a snap closure, and the other pockets can easily hold your other necessities in their own area.

maestra in creme – $895

The Senreve Maestra is my favorite of the bunch, and the company will soon be releasing a Mini Maestra as well. Each bag can be worn a variety of ways, including as a satchel, tote, crossbody, or backpack. I’m not a huge backpack gal (though in my mind, I’d like to be), but I’ve seen plenty of photos of girls carrying this bag as a backpack and it looks great. I love that the long strap is adjustable and I easily can carry this bag cross-body, which works really well while holding Millie. The design is simple and really attractive.

Senreve sent me the cream Maestra, and I’ve been using it for a week now and am looking forward to seeing how it works for me and holds up—light colored bags scare me about color transfer, but Senreve assures me their bags have been tried and tested! The Maestra is versatile and feminine, offered in a variety of colors and two types of leather: Pebbled or Mimosa (Mimosa reminds me of LV Epi Leather). The size is ideal for someone who is on the go and needs to carry a lot and have a functional (yet stylish) tote. Often, when a bag is trying to be functional, it winds up looking overly work-like, and that isn’t what working women are always looking for. Most women I talk to want a bag that is ladylike, modern, and easy-to-use, and this bag gets a check in each box.

doctor bag – $895

There are other bags and accessories as well, including the Doctor Bag, Voya Tote, Crossbody, Bracelet Pouch, Envelope Clutch, Card Wallet and Caddy. The Doctor Bag has an East/West shape, but also can be worn boxy by folding in the gussets at the sides. The Crossbody is a three-compartment bag that is good for weekends and nights out – cool thing about the Crossbody is there’s a removable bracelet pouch that you can unsnap and use by itself! The Envelope Clutch can hold a laptop and slide into the Maestra Bag or be carried separately. The two leathers offered, Pebbled or Mimosa, are both extremely durable and lightweight. The Pebbled leather has a softer finish (but is scratch resistant) while the Mimosa leather gets its long-grain texture from the treatment of machine pressing. Each bag and design is straightforward yet stands out. Prices range from $95 to $895.

envelope in pebbled coral and mimosa bordeaux – $245

I was introduced to this brand at the perfect time, just as I was feeling like a new designer needed to break into the handbag world. As handbag lovers, we have so many options when it comes to established brands, but I am always excited to see a new brand that I believe has great products and can make a space for itself in the market. The founders of Senreve are handbag lovers like us and wanted to fill a void they saw in women’s closets. When talking to them, I can hear their passion for their craft, and it was evident when I saw the bags in person. This might be our first in-depth look at the brand, but it won’t be the last. Shop all Senreve bags via the company’s website.

DIOR EXPLORE IN THE SKY HAND-PAINTED PRINT

Categories:Other Brands

Dior-Explore-In-The-Sky-Hand-Painted-Print

Remember the graffiti prints on shoulder bags and backpacks? There were popular all over the world. Now Dior has their own version, but in a classier style and it looks fabulous. They call this print the Dior Explore In The Sky.

The new Dior Explore in the Sky motif is completely hand-painted and embellished on the DiorAddict handbag. However, we’re also certain that this print will be integrated into other classic bags as well. This playful print is an important launch for Dior as it is moving away from its traditional classic styles that feature the Cannage Stitching. In this artful motif you will find the lettering ‘Explore Dior In The Sky’, a flying bird, stars, the sky at night with beautiful blue lines. It’s the perfect bag to match with your casual outfit like jeans and a pair of sneakers of course.

The DiorAddict is made with the Dior clasp, a front flap and it comes with medium-sized chains in aged golden hardware. A chic tag has been added as the final refinement. The design is also part of its Boho Parisian Elegance theme.

For those that are interested, the leather used is lambskin and the chain can be detached in order to change the bag in a clutch. It measures 21 x 13 x 8 cm and is priced at €3500 euro, £3100 GBP, ₩5,400,000 WON Via Dior boutiques. So what do you think? Would you carry it?

Chanel: #ParisCosmopolite Bags, Bags, Bags!

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: ELEN WINATA FOR CHANEL

You read about Singapore’s first-ever Ephemeral Boutique for Chanel that recently opened its doors at Marina Bay Sands, you read part 1 of Chanel’s 9 special ateliers collectively known as Métiers d’Art. And you could be asking, what’s the link? Well, Chanel’s Métiers d’Art collection (that is devoted to celebrating these 9 ateliers) happens annually, and this year’s collection is themed #ParisCosmopolite and is partly inspired by Coco Chanel’s time at (and her special relationship with) the Ritz Paris, where she kept an apartment for many years.

Now that you understand the link between Métiers d’Art and the #ParisCosmopolite pop-up boutique, I can now focus on what I enjoy the most about this collection: the bags. And the first one? This show-stopper of a stunner, the aged lambskin leather 2.55 that comes adorned with charms.

Charms that each depict Coco’s time at the Ritz, from the telephone to the hotel key, along with love letters she would have received from her admirers to other Chanel icons like the camellia, the perfume bottle and the #5. Available in two sizes, the larger one measures 24 cm by 16.5 cm (SGD10,820) while the smaller one comes in 20 cm by 14.5 cm.

IMAGE: ELEN WINATA FOR CHANEL

Another beauty that’s an icon-in-the-making, the new season Gabrielle Hobo that all of you should be familiar with by now. Available in a variety of sizes, they now come in new colours as well, including this one in metallic gold calfskin that measures 28 cm by 21 cm and retails for SGD5700. You can get the smallest one as a weekend companion, or the largest one as an everyday work carryall, it’s really up to you. Also available in metallic silver, tweed, even in a combination of suede and polished calf, I promise you’ll be a kid in a candy store if your heart is set on one.

IMAGE: ELEN WINATA FOR CHANEL

From the practical to the novelty, here’s a fun full-leather clutch that’s inspired by the regal hotel room door at Ritz Paris, more specifically, Coco Chanel’s very own suite (that’s her room number) at the famed Parisian hotel. Measuring 20 cm by 15 cm by 6 cm, you can use it as a clutch, or simply take out its long metal chain sling from the inside and use it a lovely evening bag. A beautifully memorable keepsake that no hard-core fan of Chanel should be without, this little piece of Coco’s history can be yours for just SGD12,990.

IMAGE: ELEN WINATA FOR CHANEL

Another novelty piece that I adore is this one, simply known as the Pouch Bag that comes in black or gold sequins. Quite literally as flat as it looks, you could use it as an evening clutch, or hang it on your door. And depending on your mood, you could place it on the side that says Please Dare To Disturb, or flip it over to show Do Not Disturb. A unique conversational piece, this SGD7290 beauty is another collectible no fan should be without.

IMAGE: CHANEL

And now that you’ve seen the 4 I adore the most, here are more bags from the rest of the #ParisCosmopolite collection that you should most definitely check out as well. From the elaborately detailed Boy Chanel and the seasonal Classic Flap pieces to even other novelties like the black/gold striped perfume bottle clutch and the flat 2D evening bag adorned with crystals, just leave a comment here if you would like to know about these pieces and I’ll get back to you guys stat.
