Chanel Soft Leather 2.55 Collection

You should have already read the first post on Chanel’s Soft Leather 2.55 collection, an icon in its own right that quite literally has been given new skin. And the skin in this case refers to the ‘soft leather’ you’ll find on these 2.55 bags that should be launched sometime in Singapore come June 2016.

Why is this leather so special then, you ask? Well, for starters, it’s cut only from a certain portion of the entire skin, where it’s the softest and also has the fewest imperfections for that almost flawless finish. It’s also lightly-treated, meaning when it came to treating and tanning the leather, not that much was done, which would allow the leather to patina most beautifully over time. Or in layman’s terms, age.

So unlike leather that has been botoxed and varnished to a hilt (you know, like the ladies you see when you flip through society magazines), this leather, like the real you, is supposed to age over time, and take on characteristics unique to its owner, from tiny nicks where your pinky’s nail digs into the side of the bag, to minor creases that resemble the crow’s feet on your face. Ok, maybe not the best way to sell any leather bag, but you know what I mean, and if you’re big on that whole aged, vintage look, rest assured that this will happen slowly but surely with this 2.55.

And because I managed to spend quality time with these beauties over the weekend, here’s the rest of what you need to know about these 2.55 bags. For starters, one of the versions we’ll get in Singapore will come with a two-tone grosgrain and chain trim that will run along from underside to the sides of the bag. Then there’s the metal chain sling, which, if you look closely enough, comes beautifully-etched on the sides of the metal pieces. The cameo charms that come with each bag? One’s of Coco Chanel herself, the other is a lion, which also happens to be the Coco Chanel’s zodiac sign, the Leo.

Then there’s the inside, each 2.55 double-flap bag lined with tactile suede, where you’ll find a front pocket and a larger compartment on the back with 3 separate patch pocket compartments. A flap with button closure keeps everything secure, before the main flap goes over everything else for that added bit of ‘security’. To finish it off, Chanel’s reassuring Made In France label is sewn below the CC logo that’s stitched onto the flap.

Last, but by no means least, there’s an additional patch pocket on the back of the bag, but I guess you already knew that. What you don’t know is the two colours it will come in when it is launched sometime in June this year, the first, a Navy that you see in the first snap, and this, which is a warmer, slightly darker colour they are calling Camel. Both colours are gorgeous, you just need to decide when you see the 24 cm by 16 cm by 7.5 cm bags (priced at SGD7280 each, by the way) in Chanel boutiques in a couple of months.

Miu Miu Vitello Soft Handbag

Miu-Miu-Vitello-Soft-Bags-3

Miu Miu, the company next to Prada, has been experimenting with designs and styles for the past several years and I have to admit, they are getting better and better.

Besides, it’s always nice to discover variation of bags from a designer brand that you can trust. Let your daily fashion be guided by Miu Mu.

Now I’ve to admit that, even though the idea was creative, I wasn’t really into the biker bags in bi and tri colors from the Resort 2014 collection. I like it more minimal and these babies are the perfect fit, they look like butter soft marshmallows.

For those who are interested, the Miu Miu Vitello Soft Bags are from the new Spring Summer 2014 Collection, they are the refinement of the refinement, the best of the best; a reverse leather appliqué, invisible stitching (imagine that!), padded edging and trim with blending innovation and tradition.

The interior are 100% crafted from leather and have pockets that are functional and made-sense. The Metal logo on the front is reminiscent of the classic luggage details.

Even the handles are well thought; it’s made from padded leather and has an entirely different feeling than the soft body of the bag. On the top of that, it comes with a shoulder strap to make it wearable in any occasion.

This bag is now priced at $2,350 USD or €1650 euro’s, it’s already launched at your local Miu Miu boutique and also available on their e-store.
