CATEGORIES:Other Brands

Get ready because Chanel is determined to crown the latest Gabrielle Line as the house’s next classic, it will become as famous as the Boy Bag or the Classic Flap Bags. Now before that happens, allow us to introduce you a new addition to the Collection, the Gabrielle Pouch.
Chanel-Gabrielle-Pouch

You think that the Boy Bag is so iconic? Think again as the Gabrielle Bags are inspired by Coco Chanel’s boyish attitude. And people used to call her: ‘Coco, Coco’, but that’s not her real name. Gabrielle is her real name.

The Chanel Gabrielle Pouch is launched for the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection. You can see that certain elements resemble the Boy Bag – like the part quilting and the part smooth leather. These two powerful designs create a very strong and irresistible appeal. The top zipper is made with a woven chain leather strap design (same design as the Classic Flap Bag) and it’s attached to a leather strap with the CC logo on it. The CC logo is made in vintage gold hardware.

Carry the clutch for work or special occasions; its size is ideal to carry somewhat larger mini-essentials like documents. This bag is just one word and that’s love. Style code: A84288, measures 24 x 35 x 1.5 cm, priced at $1425 USD, €1410 euro, £1190 GBP, $11100 HKD, ¥10900 CNY, ¥169560 JPY, $1775 CAD via Chanel boutiques.

THE ULTIMATE CHLOE DREW BAG REVIEW

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

Chloe-Drew-Bag

First introduced in the Pre-Fall 2014 Collection, the Chloe Drew Bag instantly captured the attention of the fashion world. It was truly love at first sight and within few months after it’s first-release, bloggers and celebrities were seen carrying this beautiful round-shaped shoulder bag. But its rapid fame was not surprising at all, have you ever spotted such unique design before? No, and that’s why it’s a rare gem. Try to sling it on your shoulder once and you will get hooked forever – It’s like an addiction.

The Design

Chloe-drew-bag-design

Every part of the Chloe Drew Bag is so Chloe-ish. It’s a casual chic handbag, but it can also be matched with formal clothing like a dress or suit. The design is truly a masterpiece and while it’s crafted with a stunning front flap, the majority of the attention actually goes to the beautiful hardware, especially the center lock, which is made with a pin lock closure. The top comes with a golden hook and it’s attached to the jewelry-like chain. Every component is vital for the whole appearance, even the snap fastening on sides, which is made to adjust the size to your comfort.

The Chloe Drew Bag usually comes in golden hardware, but depending on the color and leather of the bag, it also available in silver hardware. The round and curvy shape is the most appeal part of the design, because it makes the bag look so ladylike no matter what outfit you wear. The front flap closes and opens with a magnetic fastening, so you can have quick access to all your essentials inside. However, you can put your small essentials in the back pocket as well for the instant-grab.

Wear the bag on your shoulder or cross body. Carry it downtown or on city trips, this bag is a statement maker and immensely popular as well. I mostly love because the bag doesn’t scream Chloe, even tough it looks fabulous.

The Interior

The interior is rather simple, but it’s made to put as much essentials inside as possible. That’s why there is one large compartment and internal slot pocket for important necessities. The inside is also covered with suede lining for the softness and luxury appeal. And it usually has the same color as the exterior.

The Sizes

Chloe-Drew-Bag-sizes-2

From Left To Right: Nano, Mini, Small, Medium

The measurements:
Celine Nano Drew Bag: 5′ x 6′ x 2.5′ (H x W x D) inches
Celine Mini Drew Bag: 6.5′ x 7.5′ x 2.5′ (H x W x D) inches
Celine Small Drew Bag: 8′ x 9′ x 2.75′ (H x W x D ) inches
Celine Medium Drew Bag: 9.5′ x 10.5′ x 3.5′ (H x W x D ) inches

Today, the most popular sizes of the Chloe Drew Bag are the nano, mini and medium size. With the interior in mind, the Medium Drew can be your everyday bag while the Nano Drew is better fit as an evening bag. And it’s true that the smaller the size, the cuter the bag looks, but sometimes you need to carry a bag that’s practical as well.

The Leathers

From Left To Right: Suede with Leather, Python

The Drew Bag is offered in different leather, it includes the goatskin, lambskin, calfskin and python. Chloe is also famous for making part suede and part leather handbags, that’s why sometimes you can find a Drew Bag in suede but the flap in full leather. The most common leather is goatskin, because it’s durable and smooth. The calfskin leather is impeccable as well, but it feels grainier. Both are great choices though.

Lambskin feels luxurious and super soft and Chloe’s version is not as fragile as Chanel’s version. Then you also have body suede and flap leather options; the mix of these leather combinations creates an interesting contrast. Due to the different in material, the suede color is usually brighter while the leather color is sharper.

The Colors

From Left To Right: Black, Blue, Green, Pink, White, Red

While it’s easier to opt for the classic black color, it’s just one of the few popular choices for celebrities and bloggers. You see, the Chloe Drew Bag is a happy bag and it’s available in series of bright colors. This bag is especially perfect to wear during the spring or summer, together with your cheerful outfit. First orange is the color of the house, so it’s one of the best options. The others basic colors are pink, light blue, dark brown and light grey.

Hermès Passant Wallet

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

IMAGE: HERMÈS

Consider this a refresher. Last August I did a post on a then hard-to-find wallet that only recently made its debut at the French luxury house. Many months on, while the Passant Wallet is still pretty rare (but still not as hard to spot as say, a unicorn), you can often catch glimpses of it whenever you step into the boutiques’ hallowed halls. And now that it’s making more appearances in newer colours I’ve never seen myself, I thought it apt to do a quick update.

IMAGE: HERMÈS

Offered in 2 sizes (the Passant Compact Wallet and the Passant Long Wallet), it’s basically a wallet within a wallet. Let me explain. For starters, there are 3 parts to the Passant, the actual wallet as well as 2 separate leather pieces contained within, the first, a card case with slots, the second, a zip purse. In other words, you can use the wallet as is with all your cards and cash loaded in, or separate all 3 pieces and use them individually. The only difference between the 2 sizes? One’s shorter at 14.5 cm by 9 cm while the longer one will come in at 20.5 cm by 9.5 cm, which also means the former’s card case comes with 4 slots while the latter has 6 card slots.

Intrigued? It gets better. While I remember they only had the Black and Orange (or Feu) in Epsom leather back then, you’ll now find it in a wider variety of leathers (they’ve added Evercolor calfskin leather) and colours including Bleu Agate and Rouge Grenat, just to name a few. Priced at SGD2600 and SGD3200 respectively, there are 2 ways you could look at the eye-watering 4-figure sum. Yes, it is more expensive than most other designer wallets out there, but if you were to compare those prices to Hermès’ own Azap, Béarn, Constance and Kelly wallets, the Passant is definitely a steal.

DIORADDICT LOCKBOX BAG

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

DiorAddict-Lockbox-Bag-2

The DiorAddict Bags have caught the attention of many since its introduction to the public. Fresh from Dior’s Summer 2017 Collection, it’s best if you brace yourself once more as the newest addition to the family is here! Meet the DiorAddict Lockbox Bag.

A new Dior bag with an upbeat attitude, the DiorAddict Lockbox Bag shines away from the usual saddle fashion of the Dior D-Fence Bag. In fact, its structure is a far cry from its predecessor. The Lockbox Bag features a structured boxy silhouette, which works well in keeping your things organized. The DIOR logo on the other hand is placed on the topmost part for easy brand identification. However, that’s not all there is to this bag. Are you seeing what we’re seeing? Well, the obvious feature is staring you right through the eyes. And yes, it’s the lock/clasp, which is the absolute eye candy!

Like a cherry on top, the creme dela creme of the DiorAddict Lockbox Bag would be its aged gold-toned lock/clasp. The lock/clasp not only acts as a security feature but it also serves as an added glam factor, which could seal the deal for most bag hunters.

This Dior bag also boasts of a shoulder strap for easy shoulder and cross body carrying. It also has a clochette on the side to finish off the look. Measuring 16.5 x 12.5 x 5 cm, priced at £3000 GBP, €3400 euro via Dior boutiques.
