For all the Chanel lovers out there, take a deep breath and be ready as the Chanel Trendy CC Flap Bag is here to change your everyday styling edits.

The fame of the Chanel Trendy CC Bag is never-ending and we’ve always loved the tote bag edition. But for the Spring Summer 2017 Collection something magical happened. A new style has been born; please meet the Chanel Trendy CC Flap Bag.

Made from genuine lambskin leather with the thick diamond quilting that we’ve grown to love, this Chanel Trendy CC Flap Bag is truly a dream come true. So let’s take a closer and more detailed look.

This stylish Chanel bag features the elegant golden plate on the top with the house’s signature on it, which is a descriptive of the Trendy CC Bag. The Flap Bag version doesn’t come with handles, but instead a chain strap. At the side, you can see that the bag is much thinner to avoid heavy carrying. And of course, it comes with the famous CC clasp and interwoven chain link for shoulder carrying

Measuring 6.9” x 10.2” x 2.4” inches, priced $4500 USD, €3360 euro, £3030 GBP, $5400 sGD, $28200 HKD, $5150 AUD, ¥457920 JPY, ¥26000 CNY via Chanel boutiques.

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.


We know what you think: ‘Chanel just released the Spring Summer 2016 Collection Act 2 and now we’re talking about the Fall Winter 2016 Runway Bag Collection’.

Oh well, more bags more choices right? Let’s highlight the best…



Chanel Wallet On Chain is stunning, but have you ever considered another small bag with chain? Take a closer look at this black clutch bag with interwoven and pearl chain links – a bag with timeless color featuring the tiny CC logo on the front and sling those pearls on your shoulder… it almost sounds like a fairytale.




We just cannot live without boy bags. Chanel reintroduces the Boy Galuchat Flap Bag for the next season. Here’s one in silver hardware and it comes with ruthenium chain strap. It’s literally to-die-for.


Oh my, can you resist this?


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.

The bag of… Floortjeloves!

Other Brands



I would love to introduce Floortje, my co-bagaddict! She just turned 21 and is a proud citizen of Amsterdam since this week! She is a jack of all trades as she is a successful model, already graduated and the owner of her successful blog Floortjeloves. This is her personal luxury place on the web where she shares her passion on fashion, beauty and lifestyle. Last week we met for lunch at Lotti’s, the restaurant in The Hoxton Hotel in Amsterdam. We both ordered an exotic salad (delicious!) and agreed that our bags could also stay on the table. Now that Floortje is a sincere baglover as well, she brought her number 1-bag for this edition of The bag of…


What is story between you and your bag?

I have been dreaming of a Chanel bag for as long as I can remember and I wanted to buy my first one before my 21st birthday. To live up to this dream I opened another bank account and worked my ass off to be able to buy that bag. In August I was in the Chanel store to ask for the price in order to know how much I needed to safe and then I saw this one. It is a special season edition which is a little bit different from the classic. I fell in love again and I got myself this ‘Classic Chanel Flag Bag Medium – season edition‘ a week later at the store at the P.C. Hooftstraat, right before turning 21. This bag is my special one for special events and when I don’t use it, I keep it safe in my dust bag.


You are a bit of a bagaholic yourself;)! How many bags do you have in your collection and which one is your favorite?

I don’t know how exactly many bags, but I do know the number of the designer bags, which are 5 until now. My Chanel is my favorite!!


You are a true beauty. Could you possibly reveal something about your morning make up ritual?

It can’t wake up without my cream from the Chanel aqua line. And I always start my day with my fresh ginger tea. I don’t wear foundation because I think it is bad for your skin as it can’t breath. However I am trying several BB and CC creams to use on a daily basis. And the most important tip: wash your face very – very – good!

What is your perfect Christmas holiday outfit?

Something with glitters and sequins and a small bag to carry my lipstick, for example this glitter clutch. I don’t like to bring my phone during the holidays as I want to enjoy my family time to the max. And preferably no high heels now that I love to dance all night long.


How would you define your style?

I like to call myself a cameleon as I like all kinds of different styles. When I wake up I can sometimes feel like casual, chic, fierce or bohemian. But mostly it will be a mix of casual chic and bohemian.

What is your number 1 destination?

Paris! I really love going there and when I go, I always visit the Rue the Saint-Honoré andLadurée for macarons. And I also like to hop on a party bus with complete strangers!


What is your favorite social media platform?

Instagram and snapchat (@Floortjeloves).

If you could choose one celebrity to go on a date with, who would it be?

Liam Neeson, he sincerely is my man crush!


Hahaha, love your man crush and your other sincere answers! Thank you for this lovely interview! For those who want to know more about Floortje.

We love to feature stores from serious bag hunters and here’s one from Fev LSM. She bought the Chanel Metallic Chain Classic Flap Bag in Galleries Lafayette Paris. And she loves it (we love it too).

If you’re confused which handbag this is, we fully understand that because there are so many choices. We are here to clarify – this is a seasonal flap bag from the Chanel Spring Summer 2016 Collection Act 2. You know, the collection filled with Chanel trolleys.

But this bag is absolutely gorgeous and the price is just right. And here’s why…

It’s like the Chanel Easy Flap Bag that we so much crave for back in 2013. The Chanel Easy Flap Bag was quite similar to the original Classic Flap Bag, but the price was less expensive. It makes all the ladies around the world happy.

READ: Chanel Easy Flap Bag

The Chanel Metallic Chain Classic Flap Bag is like that too. While the Medium Classic Flap Bag is retailing for $4900 USD, this bag is just priced at $3200 USD. It’s really a steal for a Chanel bag.

What’s more? The bag is quilted and beautified with the CC logo on the front. It has the same size and roughly the same compartment like the Classic Flap Bag (maybe a little bit bigger, but that’s only better).

The shoulder strap is made with a strong vintage-colored golden chain, which looks quite like a boy chain. And don’t we love the boy bags?

The medium size has the style code: A9400, size: 6.7’x 12.6′ x 4.7′ inches and the . It’s still available now at the Chanel boutique.

Cruise Womens Chanel: Snapshots


chanel_cruise14-womens1What will go down as the single biggest international event as far as Singapore’s fashion scene is concerned, the Cruise Womens Chanel runway collection was presented last night at Loewen Cluster within Dempsey Village, a group of disused colonial buildings that were revitalised by Chanel.

Held on a scale that was simply mind-blowing, international media, top models and celebrities flew in by the planeloads to report, walk and well, celebrate Karl Lagerfeld’s latest collection, revisiting Coco Chanel’s style in 1913 but with a contemporary approach to shapes and silhouettes.

chanel_cruise14-womens2After the fashion, the next biggest draw would have to be the celebrity attendees, which included everyone from Chinese actress Zhou Xun to Super Junior’s Siwon Choi who drew sighs and flashbulbs wherever he went. Actresses Dakota Fanning and Ryeo-Wong Jung were in attendance, along with Singapore’s Zoe Tay and Fann Wong.

And then there was the ever-obliging Carine Roitfeld who gamely took photographs with most everyone who asked, along with top models Cara Delevingne, Joan Smalls, Stella Tennant, Lindsey Wixon and Brad Kroenig. The list goes on, and on, but it was perhaps Karl Lagerfeld who got the most attention, the man behind Chanel today and the one who single-handedly decided to give our tiny island our day to bask in Chanel’s glorious sun.

As for myself, it was a surreal experience I’ll never forget, a great privilege that I will always have fond memories of, being surrounded by all kinds of beautiful: celebrities, models and of course, the bags.
