CHANEL SO BLACK MINI CLASSIC FLAP BAG

Other Brands

Chanel-All-Black-Rectangle-Mini-Flap-Bag

The Chanel Mini Classic Flap Bag must be a bag made in heaven. Just one look at it makes you fall in love and completely obsessed. And perhaps this bag is just too dangerous, because once you get addicted, there is no doctor that can save you.

We call this bag ‘Rectangle’ because of its shape. There is another Mini size available but in ‘Square’ shape. Both bags are the second smallest size of the Classic Flap Bag Collection. The Chanel Mini Classic Flap Bag is an iconic bag and it has Chanel’s trademark all over it. The interlocking CC logo made by Karl Lagerfeld, the beautiful diamond quilting and the lady-like woven chain strap that comes with it.

Now, the ‘So Black’ editions are very rare. It’s also called ‘All Black’ and that’s because their leather as well as the hardware is crafted in black. Knowing this, the Chanel So Black Mini Classic Flap Bag is obviously hard-find even if when you know they’re available in the current season. You need to catch them but visiting to the boutiques and ask the SA whether they’ve it in stock. But once you’ve own such a beauty, it’s always yours and it will be the best investment you’ll ever made.

The Chanel Mini Classic Flap Bag (Rectangle) has the style code A66990 and is measured 8′ x 5′ x 2′ inches. This bag retails for $3700 USD, €2490 euro via Chanel boutiques.

So we wish you a productive and happy hunting!

This is the same Chanel Rectangle Mini Classic Flap Bag but in Chevron Quilting instead of the diamond quilting. This bag is a very rare item as well because of the ‘So Black’ design.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Eclipse: Essential SLGs For The Boys

Louis Vuitton

IMAGE: JSK FOR LOUIS VUITTON

Last week you discovered what bags Louis Vuitton had to offer as far as their new Monogram Eclipse bags were concerned, which included everything from iconic classics to new styles given the Black/Greytreatment, which have been a hit since the day they launched. Today we turn our attention to the essentials we will use most every day, the small leather goods (or SLGs) that are as handsome as it gets when it comes to the vast array available now from this collection.

First up, a pair of the larger SLGs (shown above) that are big for a good reason. On the left, we’ve got the Pochette Voyage MM (SGD960), a 26 cm by 20 cm zip clutch that’s trimmed with cowhide leather on the top. Small as it might sound, it’s actually pretty roomy, and you can fit a lot in, wallet, mobile charger, keys, mints and then some.

On the right is the Zippy XL Wallet, for those who have too much to carry around on any given day, or (and more seriously), the perfect travel wallet. What’s on the inside? Well, for starters, 16 credit card slots, 3 gusseted compartments and 2 flat compartments for cash and receipts. Then there’s the extra large coin compartment, and even a pocket on the inside that will fit most smartphones, which is always a bonus. And when it’s priced at SGD1710, you really can’t argue with that, especially when it comes with so much on the inside.

Next we’ve got the 4 more SLGs that are truly everyday essentials. From the iPad Cover Box (SGD1710) that keeps your iPad safe along with 12 credit slots on the inside, it’s like the perfect mini workbag on the go, assuming of course you’re one who works extensively on the go.

Classics in their own right, here are the 3 wallets (from the left to right) that no man I know will not mind owning, from the Pocket Organiser (SGD455) to the Multiple Wallet (SGD670) and of course, theBrazza Wallet (SGD830). One’s a card case (with a flap), the other’s your standard classic billfold and lastly, the long wallet for those who believe in more is more.

And to round up the collection, here are some accompanying pieces you could consider if you’re all about the matchy-matchy when it comes to the things you own. From your standard keychain (SGD455) that you could attached your car (or house) keys to, to the 16 cm by 11 cm Box Clutch (SGD1350) that’s sort of your tiny wallet on the go (think lunch bag, but for boys), complete with credit card slots and flat pockets for cash.

Then there’s the Ribbon Cardholder Box and the Ribbon Cardholder, which I think will be extremely useful for those who work in corporate environments that require keycard access from point to point. Priced from SGD505, you can pick them all out now at Louis Vuitton boutiques across Singapore. Or follow this link and check out the full collection online, where you’ll find so much more available for sale from the new Monogram Eclipse collection.

Louis Vuitton Monogram World Tour

Louis Vuitton

On his many travels, Gaston-Louis Vuitton used to collect hotel and airline stickers, and always took a fascination to the labels on luggages and trunks he saw, as he felt it was telling of the owner and the adventures they had been on. It was this spirit of wanderlust that was the main inspiration behind the new Louis Vuitton Monogram World Tour Collection.

Creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere has transposed this tradition of travel stickers on the classic Louis Vuitton Monogram icons, from its classic city bag Speedy to the LV55 watch and the Pégase suitcase. The stickers feature dynamic cosmopolitan cities like Tokyo, Paris and Milan, or paintings from the Hyper Realistic Movement. This collection is a fun, playful take on the classic Monogram series and a great way to pay homage to the design house’s long-standing association with travel. Head up to our gallery to check out the new collection up close!

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

You’ve already seen the first few pieces from this collection, now see the rest from Louis Vuitton’s Monogram World Tour collection. Yes, that’s the official name of this festive range of bags and SLGs, inspired by founder Gaston Louis Vuitton’s love of hotel and airline stickers which he collected whilst on his own travels. You’ll be familiar with the bags and SLGs too, all icons in their own right that Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquière has chosen for this animated and fun line that’s just perfect for Christmas.

Now comes the next most important question. How much? Well, I’ve got all the prices here for you, so all you really need to do is to decide if the recipient has been naughty, or nice. And if anyone’s been wondering, I’ve been really nice all year. So there.

First up (from left to right), we’ve got the Monogram World Tour Zippy Wallet (SGD1230), then the Monogram World Tour Pochette Felicie(SGD1430) that actually comes with 2 extra SLGs on the inside that can be used together or separate from the bag, one a zip pouch, another a flat pocket card case that comes with 8 credit card slots. Last but not least, there’s the Monogram World Tour Sarah Wallet (SGD1100), which happens to be a favourite amongst many, by the way.

Next we’ve got the ‘big guns’, starting with the Monogram World Tour Speedy30 Bandouliere (SGD2330), the Monogram World Tour Neverfull MM(SGD2110) which incidentally comes with a black trim (very Monogram Macassar, if you ask me), with the Monogram World Tour Alma BB(SGD2010) rounding up the montage.

Finally, another look at some of the icons given the Monogram World Tourtreatment, because everything looks better on pink, right? Besides the 6 I’ve just featured, other bags that you’ll find ‘stickered’ include theKeepall50 Bandouliere (SGD3100) with vachetta or black trim, the Toiletry Pouch26 (SGD645), the Nano Speedy (SGD1510), as well as other accessories like scarves and key rings to complete the look.


Louis Vuitton has once again featured funky stickers on their iconic handbags for their Fall/Winter 2016 Collection. The World Tour Stickers presents a variety of patches like Louis Vuitton logo, cars, and flamingos. These stickers can be seen on Louis Vuitton’s famous handbags. These includes City Streamer in Veau Satin leather, Speedy, Petite Malle and Twist in Epi Leather, all in black color. It will also be available in Monogram Canvas bags including Speedy, Alma, Neverfull, Petite Malle, Palm Springs Mini Backpack as well as Travel bags and Small Leather Goods.

HERMES KELLY FLAG WALLETS

Hermes

Hermes-Kelly-Flag-Wallet

Everything-limited is certainly worth chasing, like the Hermes Kelly Flag Wallet. We were told that only 12 pieces were available in each store.

The Kelly Wallet is one of Hermes’s Classic accessories and needs no introduction – the beautiful Kelly Lock in the center is what we’re all craving for. The Flag Wallet edition is in bi-color blue and black or in bi-color red and burgundy.

The purpose of this post is to give you more details about this beauty. First, it’s covered in Epsom Calfskin. The interior is the same as the original Kelly Wallet, it features 12 credit card slots, 2 pockets for bills, central zip purse for change with Kelly Lock pull-tab. This bag is great as an evening clutch or a long wallet.

Measuring 4.5’ x 7.7’ inches, priced at $3650 USD via Hermes boutique.

Hermes-Kelly-Flag-Wallet-2


Never carried, this Hermès Kelly Long Flag Wallet is absolutely pristine with the protective plastic intact on the hardware.  The limited edition style is very collectible in a combination of Flamingo and Coral Epsom leather.  Known for its ease of use, functionality, and understated chic panache, the Kelly Long is both practical and beautiful.

Textured and durable Flamingo Epsom leather has a Coral center block and interior.  Accented with sophisticated Palladium twist lock belted closure.  Gusseted sides allow for easy management.  The interior is outfitted with twelve card slots, a central zippered coin compartment with padlock pull and multiple currency slots.     Made in France.  Blind stamped Q within a square.   Protective felt and Hermès box included.

Women’s Hermès Purses and Wallets

There’s something empowering behind owning a luxury made item. Whether it’s a flowing gown or a wallet that remains hidden in a bag, that feeling is present in every single item. Hermes has been the premier couture house in France ever since it was founded in 1837. The brand’s attention to detail, intrinsic designs and creative vision are executed flawlessly in every piece. When looking for wallet, Hermes is your trusted brand in elegance and style that will last a lifetime. From flawless materials to stunning hardware nothing quite compares to what Hermes brings forth with each one of their unique designs.

Hermes Kelly Wallet

I am always on the hunt for the perfect wallet because my wallet is the most important item in my bag (sometimes more than the bag itself)! I actually spend more time choosing my wallets than my handbags because there are so many conditions to be met, but today, the hunt for THE wallet is finally over. The latest style from Hermes, the Kelly Long Money Holder or Ligne Kelly (I prefer to call it the Kelly Wallet/Clutch) is the answer to my dreams! It is 7 inches wide (18cm, half the length of a 35cm birkin) and may also be used as a clutch, nothing like a two for one to get me excited! (More after the jump!)


I went through my list of requirements: chic style (it’s Hermes, it’s a Kelly, need I say more?), a color that will endure daily abuse (etoupe is the perfect shade of taupe gray that won’t show dirt or stains), adequate credit card/ID slots(12- I only use two credit cards but seem to have a dozen of other ‘cards’- ID cards for my son and I, insurance card, prescription card, membership cards, VIP cards to clubs, Gym card, Yoga card- the list is endless!), space for cash (two slots, you can fit a passport in one of them!), foreign currency/checks/receipts (there are two pockets behind the credit card slots which will fit everything from Chinese RMB to the Euro), and functional coin pocket (with an adorable miniature Hermes lock as the zipper pull which actually cinched the deal for me, who else but me would buy a wallet purely because the zipper pull is so cute!?!?).

Made of ultra durable and lightweight Chevre Mysore (Goatskin), the Kelly Ligne is the best Hermes wallet I have ever owned. My Hermes Dogon and Bearn wallets lack sufficient card slots and they do not close properly when the coin pockets are full. The Kelly clasp allows me to stuff as much as I want without worrying about closing it! Plus I love being able to open it and look down to see everything I have in there at one glance. The best part, though, is its double function as a clutch (I put my cell in there and it fits!) and you don’t have to worry about a wallet for your credit cards or cash because it’s already built in! There is a wait list for the Kelly Ligne wallet so you must call your Hermes SA immediately. It is available in multiple colors but I absolutely love the etoupe, it is so chic and sophisticated. At Hermes Boutiques worldwide.

Each year, Hermes changes the leather and exotic skins you may order from depending on availability. Here are the skins available this year if you are one of the lucky ones to be on a permanent list.

EXOTICS

Porosus crocodile from Australia– Most commonly found on Northern shores of Australia, New Guinea and Indonesia. Hermes does not glaze the Porosus croc skins so they will never peel. This skin is polished with an agate stone and the skin has to lay flat under the machine so once it is made into a bag, you will never be able to polish it again! I’ve ordered mine in Graphite (it turns gray, black or brown depending on the light) and am anxiously waiting it’s arrival. The Rouge 95 is also amazing and gorgeous!

Niloticus crocodile from Africa– the ever popular matte croc is rich and sumptuous. (All crocs have to be at least 10 years old to meet Hermes standards)

Mississippi Alligator– the best ‘gator skin in the world is from the US.

Lizard from Africa– Available in size 25cm or smaller due to the small size of lizards.

Ostrich from South Africa – Hermes uses the most incredible ostrich skins with flat quills. My White ostrich Kelly is from the ’60s, older than me, and is still flawless.

LEATHERS

Veau Swift– Veau means calf in French, the word after it is usually the way the calf skin has been treated and/or stamped. This is a soft and sturdy calf skin.

Veau Togo – One of the most popular skins from female calf skin, tumbled and printed. I was told it is being phased out, what a shame as I just love Togo!

Veau Box – A stiff calf skin that wears to a beautiful patina but scratches easily.

Veau Epsom – Calf skin that has a smoother grain and is very stiff, I like this for the white Hermes bags.

Troika Calf hair– A delicate and gorgeous skin but it will wear around the edges. Not the most durable.

Vache Liege– Vache means cow in French- you’ll see that cow skin is also thicker than calf skin. Liege is the way it is treated and stamped.

Vachette Crispee Fjord – Cow skin in a heavy and looser texture.

Chevre Mysore– Goatskin is becoming increasingly difficult to find at Hermes quality so chances are you won’t be able to order one this year so if you see one ready made at the boutique, grab it!

Taurillon Clemence – The softest and most durable of skins made of Bull leather. The grain is looser than the Veau skins.

Buffle– Buffalo skin is as tough as you can get. This is usually used for luggage.

This is it for orders made in 2008. I told myself I would not order any more leather Hermes bags and would focus on exotics but couldn’t resist ordering the Taurillon Clemence in Olive. The color is so urban and cool! If I have time later, I will post another entry on the colors available in each skin.

A serious Hermes collector does not merely buy birkins. There are so many delectable items to be had and treasured. I bought a photo album and journal in Blue Jean Veau togo when my son was born, I’ve been keeping the journal and album with all of his “firsts” and will give both to him when he has his own child. My own Hermes bag collection consists of Birkins, Kelly bags, mini Kelly pochettes, the Lindy, several wallets, and a couple of vintage bags in a mix of exotics and leathers. I also collect Hermes enamel bangles, belts and scarves. (Forgot to mention JPG’s Hermes ready-to-wear are funky classics that I adore, I especially love the silk tops and crocodile platform shoes). Yes, I am sick and my obsession runs deep but Hermes is the only luxury brand that does not lose its value (even Chanel does not hold its value once it’s left the boutique), in fact Hermes bags increase in value with time so at least I am not squandering away my child’s inheritance! Actually, I view my Hermes collection as heirlooms to be passed down to my future daughter or granddaughters.
