SPRING-SUMMER 2014 WOMENS CHANEL: BOY SLGS

Because one doesn’t need any reason when it comes to blogging about Chanel (plus it’s a been a slow weekend), here are some S/S14 Boy Chanel SLGs (or small leather goods) for all (myself included) to drool over.

Featuring bright hues in the shiniest of patent lambskin leathers, they are from top to bottom: phone holder in metallic blue (14 cm by 9 cm, SGD970), Boy Chanel Flap Wallet in metallic pink (19.4 cm by 10.5 cm, SGD1530) and the Boy Chanel Wallet in metallic silver (18.2 cm by 10.3 cm, SGD1340).

And for those not into anything patent for fear of ruining it faster than you can pay it off after you put it on credit, there is always the Boy Chanel Wallet in black patent lambskin that measures 18.2 cm by 10.3 cm and retails for SGD1340.

Which would you get?

How Do You Store Your Bags?

A couple weeks ago, I posted a photo on Instagram of me putting my Chanel bag in its dustbag and then into its box after I used it. I asked my Instagram followers if they also put their bags away after use.

My question elicited many responses and different viewpoints on how to store your bags, which got me thinking that bag lovers’ storage strategies must be so different. Some bags may just be stuffed into the closets, some might just be inside dustbags. Some bag lovers have massive closets, so each bag has a resting place, and many will go through every step possible to keep their bags pristine as possible. The possibilities run the gamut.

For my nice bags, after I use them I take everything out and put the stuffing back in and then place the bag in its dustbag. If the bag came in a box, I typically put the bag back in the box as well. I don’t do this for every bag, but I do it for my nicer luxury bags, and I really try to keep them in good shape. (You guys know I have a thing about my nice bags).
When I asked if other people put their bags back in their dustbags, many said yes. But it was also the first time I heard someone say that keeping a bag in its box can cause the leather to dry out. I’ve never heard that, and if that’s true, I’d certainly stop keeping my bags in their boxes, so now I’m trying to get to the bottom of that debate.

There’s no better way to learn about how others store their bags than asking, so now I’m turning to you. Do you put your bags in their dustbags and store them on a shelf? Do you also put bags bag in their boxes? Share your tips and tricks when it comes to storing your bags!

The Celine Fall 2014 Handbags Lookbook Has Arrived

This is one of those posts that needs little introduction. Celine’s Fall 2014 handbags (which are pre-fall, in tradition industry terms) have surfaced in the form of an official lookbook, and contained therein is a lot of what we’ve come to expect from Celine, plus a few interesting handbag debuts.

The most notable of the new additions to the lineup is the Celine Belt Bag, which has a front strap detail somewhat similar to a popular bag from The Row, but with a more undone, casual feel. It’s the winner of the group, along with a relaunch of the brand’s pristine Doctor Bags, this time with a petite shoulder version to match. The other most noticeable new edition, the Celine Top Handle Bag (whose primary feature is, you guessed it, a very strong single top handle) feels a little bit overcooked, design-wise.

These bags should be available in Celine boutiques and department stores at the end of summer; prices are not yet available, but when we have more information, you guys will be the first to know.
