“The woman I imagined for this collection is strong and independent. She chooses to match mannish garments and heelless shoes with ultra-light dresses, creating a new expression of femininity. Mariacarla is perfect to represent this woman’s face because, thanks to her personality, she is able to interpret all my creations in an original and authentic way. To shoot the pictures I have strongly wanted Peter Lindbergh, with whom I have been working for several seasons. Our understanding almost does not need words anymore”, says Ermanno Scervino.

Categories:Other Brands

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.

THE ULTIMATE SAINT LAURENT SAC DE JOUR BAG REVIEW

Categories:Other Brands

Saint-Laurent-Sac-de-Jour-Bag

A French name for a French Bag; introducing the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag. Sac de Jour is the perfect name for an iconic bag and in French it literally means the ‘Bag Of The Day’. It’s been said that this bag is Hedi Slimane’s take on the classic birkin shape, it’s supposed to be the modern version of it. But wherever the inspiration came, the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag has conquered many people’s heart including a lot of celebrities, bloggers and super models. Before it was available in store, the bag was already widely popular when it hit the runway in 2013. And up until today, not much about its design has been changed and there is no need to either, because you don’t change an iconic bag.

The Design

Saint-Laurent-Sac-de-Jour-Bag-design

The Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag is only available in single colors or in the popular croc-embossed leather. The design is quite minimal but solid. And if you pick the right color, it turns into a timeless handbag that match like a glove to almost any of your wardrobe’s outfit; from elegant styles to urban wear. It’s made with two strong top handles, but it also comes with long leather strap for shoulder carry or cross body.

What I like about the bag is that it doesn’t scream and attract unnecessary attentions. Those who know fashion will recognize that this is not just an ordinary handbag. The front also features two short leathers on the left and right side; these leathers hold the interior compartments together. You can observe this part of the design from the side.

The luggage padlock is indispensible, so don’t lose it. The YSL lock is not only part of the Sac de Jour design, but it’s also one of the house’s icons. The padlock can be removed anything you want.

Because it’s a tote bag, you will drop it multiple times on the floor or on the table. Saint Laurent put a few protective studs on the bottom. And overall, the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag is gorgeous and super chic. It’s a great addition to your wardrobe.

The Interior

The interior is very interesting. The medium size is ideal to carry as an everyday bag. The inside is large enough to help you go from day to night. What you will find when you open the bag is the two large compartment. These two compartments are evenly separated and can be used to carry all your basic essentials and more. The medium size can fit documents and laptop.

The center is made with a beautiful double zip pocket. This part is to store your vital necessities and due to its location, those essentials can be easily reached. The interior lining has usually the same color as the exterior.

The Sizes

The measurements:
Saint Laurent Nano Sac De Jour Bag: 7′ x 8.6′ x 4.3′ inches (H x W x D)

Since it’s first-launched, the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Collection has been extended to the baby, nano, small and medium size. The downsized handbags also comes with a leather strap can be worn super cute on your shoulder.

The Leathers

Calfskin, Croc-Embossed, Metallic


Most people including celebrities are using the Sac de Jour Bag as an everyday bag. And it’s not a surprise at all; this bag is practical and stylish. It goes great with a summer jacket and winter coat. It can be worn with an elegant dress and heels. But to crown a bag an every companion, you need to make sure the leather is durable. The basic leather for the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag is Calf leather. This leather is impeccable, smooth and easy to maintain. It’s also scratch-resistance and can take one or two encounters.

Another more luxurious option is the Croc-Embossed leather. This leather type is as solid as the calfskin leather but it looks chic’er due to its Crocodile patterns. The price is also a bit steeper.

The Colors

Saint-Laurent-Sac-de-Jour-Bag-colors-3

Dark Brown, Green, Rose

While the Saint Laurent offers a lot of color options, the basic colors to choose for the most classic style are black, beige, grey and burgundy. For the summer, choose a brighter color like green, blue, pink and red is also a very popular choice. If you choose the mini’s, then brighter shades only enhances it cuteness.

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.
