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.

Is-So-Black-Not-So-Limited-Anymore

The Chanel So Black line is what made fans excited to run into the boutiques. And it’s a topic that has been talked about a lot. So what is the Chanel So Black?

So Black is a term used in the fashion world to describe a Chanel bag or an accessory that is made in black leather with black hardware. This combination is very rare and it’s only limited available in certain seasons. Usually the So Black design is crafted in iconic handbags like the Chanel Classic Flap Bag or the Chanel Boy Bags.

But the unusual happened in the Chanel Spring Summer 2017 Collection. We have spotted multiple handbags and accessories that are crafted in the So Black design. The items range from the Chanel Classic Flap Bags to the Chanel Reissue 2.55 and with new designs like the Chanel O Cases in Reissue 2.55 style and chevron studs.

The Chanel So black style is not made in ruthenium black metal, but in black metal black and it is considered very rare, but is it still rare today?

15 reasons you need to buy a Chanel handbag right now

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel handbag - reasons to buy one Earlier this month Chanel announced the rise in prices of their bags across Europe to bring them into alignment with those sold in Asia and other countries around the world. What we've learned from this news snippet?

You should probably buy a Chanel bag now, while they're cheaper.

If you STILL need convincing even after this revelation, here are 15 more reasons why buying a Chanel bag is a really great idea.

1. THE CLASSIC 11.12 BAG WILL COST €710 MORE (£520) FROM APRIL 8

Right now, in parts of Europe (where the Euro is used), Chanel bags can be bought at truly bargainous prices. The 11.12 bag, for instance, is currently €3,550 (£2603) but will soon rise to €4,260 (£3063). So hop in a car/ferry/plane and buy them while they're cheap(er).

2. THEY'RE ONLY GOING TO GET MORE EXPENSIVE THE LONGER YOU WAIT

Sadly, the cost of Chanel handbags are only ever going to go in one direction. And if you don't want to see your bank account take the hit the other way, invest before you regret it.

3. YOU'LL BE PART OF A REALLY COOL CLUB

Rihanna has one, Alexa Chung has one, Kate Hudson has one, Kim Kardashian has about 50 - DON'T be left out.

4. NONE OF YOUR FRIENDS WILL HAVE ONE

Because really, not many people have £3,000 to splash out on a bag. You are one lucky girl.

5. IT WILL BE THE BEST SHOPPING EXPERIENCE YOU'LL EVER HAVE

There is nothing quite like walking around with a Chanel shopping bag in your hand. The elation, the excitement, the adrenaline.

6. THE STORE ASSISTANTS WILL MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE A PRINCESS

There are no scary, Pretty Woman-esque sales assistants here. Just super friendly, normal ladies who totally get how exciting, yet nerve-wracking spending so much money on a handbag can be. They'll help you, not rush you and make you feel like you're exactly where you deserve to be.

7. YOU'LL GET TO SIP CHAMPAGNE WHILE YOU PAY

Once you've decided which bag you'd like to take home with you, you'll be ushered into a beautiful waiting room and given a glass of champagne so you can celebrate your new purchase.

8. THE BAG WILL BE WRAPPED SO BEAUTIFULLY, YOU WON'T WANT TO OPEN IT

Seriously. We're talking dust bags, tissue paper, foam padding, boxes, ribbons. IT'S ALL SO PRETTY.

9. IT WILL LAST FOREVER

Partly because you'll be super careful with it and partly because its made from the highest quality.

10. YOU'LL PASS IT ON TO YOUR KIDS

And they onto theirs etc. A Chanel is for life AND beyond.

11. IT'LL NEVER GO OUT OF STYLE

Chanel classics are called classics for a reason.

12. NO ONE EVER SAID "I WISH I NEVER BOUGHT THAT CHANEL BAG"

I wish I didn't spend £100 on a night out, yes. I wish I didn't buy that beautiful Chanel bag, No. Never.

13. IF YOU DO NEED TO SELL IT, YOU'LL MAKE BACK YOUR MONEY

Because of all the reasons above, second-hand Chanel bags sell almost as well as new ones.

14. IT'S ACTUALLY A BAG YOU CAN CARRY YOUR STUFF IN

Practical AND pretty. Win.

15. IT'S AN INSTANT CONVERSATION STARTER

People will want to know all about that bag. WE want to know all about the bag.
