Chanel is creating a new shopping experience that is curated for their top level client base. Chanel is pushing exclusivity with its soon coming invite-only private boutiques in Asia set to launch next year.
The first Monday in May is the most coveted event in fashion, The Met Gala. This exclusive event handpicks influential people in fashion and brings them together. The red carpet never seems to amaze with the creative gowns from top luxury brands. The theme this year was “Gilded Glamour”. Below is what bags we would pick for some of the red carpet looks! Gigi Hadid: Kim Kardashian: Irina Shayk: Kris Jenner: Nicola Peltz: Iris Law: Bella Hadid: Bag Lovers, Who was your favorite look this year?
The coveted Chanel Trendy was first spotted on the spring 2014 runway. The trendy is recognized by its “Chanel” top plate, top handle, CC clasp in the front, woven chain strap, three separated compartments and a back pocket. The Trendy was designed to be a working women’s go-to bag. It flew off the shelves on its initial launch, making it an instant success. It’s now considered a classic amongst the Chanel addict community. This bag is made in limited quantities. That means when shopping at the store there are very rarely any Trendy’s lined up on the shelf. Chanel only releases a handful of Trendy CC’s easy season, making it unique and rare to other Chanel styles. The Trendy is priced more than a Chanel 19 and Coco Handle. However, it’s still a lower price point than a classic flap. […]
Mommy Bag (noun): Mary Poppins of bags usually contain diapers, snacks and everything you and everyone around you may need. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to have a kid to rock a mommy bag. How is a mommy bag different from a tote? I’m glad you asked. A mommy bag can be even a small bag that if organized correctly, can fit everything you could possibly need. A tote is usually larger and typically made of canvas, leather or any easy to clean material. These bags are perfect since they are able to carry all essentials while remaining stylish and elegant. The Birkin is the OG mommy bag – Jane Birkin originally used it as a diaper bag. Bags are meant to be enjoyed and used. If you are worried about them getting a little dirty, don’t worry, we […]
The origin of the word tote is “to carry” with roots dating back to the 17th century. In the West African language, Kikonho, the word “tota” means to “pick up”. In Kimbundu, the word “tuta” means “carry;load” and in Swahili “tuta” means “pick up,carry”. Did you know that the first tote bags were originally worn around the waist? Back in the day, if your tote was embellished or embroidered, it was a status symbol of wealth. In 1940, LL Bean created their first tote bag to carry Ice and Wood. This practical canvas bag was made to last – it’s now known as a boat bag (because of its broad shape). In the 1960s, Bonnie Cashin started a tote collection called Cashin Carry tote bag which is now known as Coach. Her collection was spacious, colorful, beautiful, modern and made […]
Does everyone feel busier in February than any other month? Maybe because it’s a shorter month. Since I survived the February blues and I feel like I have become a strong business woman – I’m going to need a new work bag to treat myself. I think you need to treat yourself too. Sac De Jour Classy, structured, and spacious. “Sac De Jour” translates to “Day Bag” – you go to work during the day, which is a sign that this should be your work bag. The structure of the bag gives the bag its elegance to be paired with a power suit or delicate dress. The bag itself isn’t bulky and has delicate pleats along the side to give it more of a feminine design. Chanel Jumbo Flap It can fit a laptop. Need I say more? I […]

The only GST I like is the Chanel GST – not the tax, the Grand Shopping Tote. This tote was available in two other sizes: the Petite Shopping Tote (PST) and the Grand Shopping Tote XL (GST XL). The oldest GST first launched in early 2004, then it was reissued in 2010, and discontinued in 2015. The GST tote rose to fame in the early to mid 2000’s with the entire cast of The Hills, Paris Hilton and many other reality TV stars sporting the bag on their arm. There are two models of this tote; the original model style code was A20995, and the newer model ( the reissued one) style code was A50995. What are the differences between the two styles? 1. Its light as air This bag is extremely light and, considering its full caviar leather […]
