CHANEL FALL WINTER RUNWAY BAG

Author:fashion Posted:2016-10-13 0:27 Thursday Categories:Other Brands

Just when you think Karl Lagerfeld is going to zig, he zags. The legendary creative director has spent half a decade showing his Chanel collections in ever-more-grandiose stage settings in the Grand Palais, ranging from an arctic tundra complete with trucked-in iceberg chunk to a Chanel-themed supermarket filled with branded items that weren't even part of the collection. For Chanel Fall 2016, though, Lagerfeld took the brand to the opposite extreme.

Chanel's simple, pared-down, front-row-only runway show where people simply sat atop couture era-inspired gold chairs and watched more than 90 looks pass in front of them. Like the show itself, the clothes and bags didn't have any over-arching pop cultural theme to guide their aesthetic details; instead, they appeared to be influenced by the creation of clothing in and of itself, with big leather stitches adorning some bags' gussets and plenty of work-intensive tweeds. The collection's novelty minaudiere, which has become an every-show signature for the brand, also pointed in that direction: it took the form of an oversized spool of thread, complete with a Chanel logo charm hanging from its loose end.

Lagerfeld's intent seemed to be to draw attention back to the clothes and accessories themselves and the immaculate craftsmanship that goes into them, and as he usually does, he succeeded.

Imagine if you would, a 30 cm ruler, you know, the type we used in school when we were kids. Actually, it was more like the ones our teachers used. On our knuckles. But this post isn’t about that; it’s about the ruler and Chanel’s smallest bags from their new Fall-Winter 2016 collection, which should be in local stores by now.

If you recall, Karl Lagerfeld had some models coming down the runway with tinyBoy Chanel bags attached to their belts, and given the measurements that I’ve got, you could stack 3 of these bags on each other and they wouldn’t even reach the top of the ruler. Yes, that’s how tiny they are. Measuring just 9.5 cm in height by 15 cm across, they could be (but correct me if I’m wrong) Chanel’s smallest Boy Chanelbags ever made, with a depth of just 7 cm.

And because I’m a huge fan of #smallerthansmall, I say yay since it’s exactly the type of thing I would want in my collection, a tiny clutch for a night out, mostly hand-held though you could also wear it across the shoulder via its metal chainlink sling. Priced at SGD5590 and SGD9160 for the two you see above placed top and bottom respectively, I’m guessing the latter’s price could be due in part to the intense braided tweed detailing that’s happening on the front flap.

For those of you who prefer something a little more classic but still fun, there’s the F/W16 Flap Bag that comes with a double peace sign. Also tiny (17 cm across by 10 cm in height), this stunningly red lambskin leather number will set you back by justSGD4450. Last, but by no means least, one of the novelty bags of the season, a ‘sewing box’ resin minaudière that I covered previously here. I didn’t have its retail price then, but for those who are keen, it is priced at SGD15,860.

A little talk about the upcoming seasonal bag. Here’s one to consider – painted in white and adorned with quilted pattern on the cover except for the flap. The flap is made in soft and smooth leather. Well, it has everything you need to flaunt.
