CHANEL LARGE SHOPPING BAG

Chanel-Large-Shopping-Bag

Sometime ago, Chanel has discontinued the majority of their classic shopping bags. And up until today, we still cannot forget about the Grand Shopping Tote (GST) and the Petite Shopping Tote (PST). The good news is that Chanel keep inventing new gorgeous tote bags like this new shopping bag from the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection. Let’s talk about that, shall we?

The Chanel Large Shopping Bag is designed with all the iconic components and it could be the next classic that will be available throughout the year. Looking at the pictures, this bag feels really soft, just like lambskin. However, it’s really made with calfskin, which is smooth but durable leather.

The diamond quilting has been embellished throughout the body, creating a chic appearance. And while the top comes with two leather handles, there is also a chain option. The woven chain strap can be used to carry the bag on your shoulder and it runs beautifully through the eyelets. The uniqueness about this new design is the smooth leather detailing that’s been showcased on the top. It fits perfectly to the concept of part leather and part quilting, which is increasingly popular these days. As a final touch, the interlocking CC logo charm has been included and it hangs on the Chanel eyelet.

Because this is a tote bag and will be dropped on the floor occasionally, it also features bottom studs that serve as protection. Style code: A98683, measuring 23 x 34 x 14 cm, priced at $3300 USD, €3100 euro, £2760 GBP, $24400 HKD, ¥393120 JPY, ¥24000 CNY, $4100 CAD via Chanel boutiques.

Now do you think this bag can compete against the GST and PST if they weren’t discontinued?

Introducing the New Christian Louboutin Passage Shopping Fringe Tote

CATEGORIES:Christian Louboutin

Red soles may be Christian Louboutin‘s signature, but he’s also making quite the impression in the world of handbags. We are already familiar with the brand’s spiked clutches and theSweet Charity Shoulder Bag, and the newest addition to the Louboutin handbag family is the line of Passage bags. The Passage bags are distinctly known for their arc-shaped enameled handles, which were inspired by the architecture of the Galerie Véro-Dodat in Paris. For Spring 2015, we have something new to look forward to from the Passage handbag line: the Passage Shopping Fringe Tote. I was lucky enough to take it for a test-drive.

Like the other Passage bags, this tote features the signature arc-shaped handles with the “Louboutin” signature engraving at the bottom of the handle, as well as a row of fringe on each gusset, giving it a fun, bohemian feeling. The spacious interior features Louboutin’s signature red lining, along with one my favorite aspects of this tote: multiple compartments and a dividing zip pouch. My only complaint, however, is because of the hardware and fringe, the bag is a pinch heavy before I put anything into; once I added all my stuff, though, it didn’t feel any heavier than my bags usually do.

As you know from my Saint Laurent dilemma, I can be very picky with the texture of my bags, and even more so when it comes to my everyday bags. They tend to take a beating, between overstuffing and daily commuting to work, so I need something that can hold up to my busy lifestyle; this tote definitely fits the bill. This bag is made of coarse grained calf leather, so the leather will age well over time as well as be forgiving to any scratches (or the occasional overstuffing).

When using this tote for work, I am able to fit all my essentials with some room to spare. One of my favorite aspects of this bag is the optional shoulder straps; carrying this bag on my shoulder is great for work, but I can also easily wear this bag off-hours for a sleek, sophisticated look once I tuck in the straps and hold it by the top handles.

If you’re looking for an everyday work bag that can take you from the office to after-work cocktails and parties, I believe you have found your match! (and I did, too).

Buy yours through Christian Louboutin or Bergdorf Goodman for $2,450.
