CHANEL CAMELLIA QUILTED ENAMEL CC CASE

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Camellia-Quilted-Enamel-CC-Case

There are countless of reasons why we should invest in the Chanel Camellia Quilted Enamel CC Case from the Pre-Fall 2018 Collection. The truth cannot be seen far away, because from distance the leather looks like aged calfskin. But when you get closer and closer, we will be surprised! It’s a new type of quilting.

The Design

Chanel-Camellia-Quilted-Enamel-CC-Case-4

So what kind of new type of quilting is that? Well, it’s one of the house’s iconic symbols – the camellia flower quilting. It’s a new invention because we have never seen small-sized camellia’s lined up next to each other and embellished all over the bag. It’s just like the diamond quilting, but then no diamonds, with camellia. Get it?

There is a second reason why we should invest into this Case. It’s because of the Enamel CC Logo. This logo looks contemporary as it’s crafted in the same color as the bag, refined with light gold hardware on the edges.

This Case can be used to store cosmetics or carried as an evening pouch. And we don’t have to worry about constant baby-ing this handbag as it’s crafted from grained calfskin. So what do you think?

The Interior

The interior is made with a main compartment to help organize our make-up essentials or to store evening essentials.

CHANEL STUDDED CORNERS FLAP BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Studded-Corners-Flap-Bag-4

For the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection, we’ve spotted a lot sophisticated and futuristic handbags. We’ve seen new styles that are as soft as the camellia flower, but also bold and statement makers like the Chanel Studded Corners Flap Bag. When you look at this bag, what does it remind you? The Classic Flap Bag right?

A lot of components on this bag resembles to the iconic Classic Flap Bag. Yet, they’re not the same. First of all, the stitching is done differently and much more vivid, the leather looks like it’s been worn; a bit of cracked like the crumple calfskin. The appearance of the body is bold, even without those studded corners. The top features the woven chain strap, but the interlocking CC looks like the vintage version and not like the smooth-version like on the Classic Flap Bag. And obvious, the most notable objects on this bag are the golden corners with little studs, which demand attention wherever you carry. This bag is a stronger version comparing to the other Chanel Flap Bag; it is perfect for the important evenings whenever you need to steal the spotlights.

Even tough the topic of the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection is Paris Cosmopolitan, this bag does remind me of the previous Dubai Cruise Collection, which also features a lot of golden hardware. Style code A94495, measuring 15.5 x 25 x 8.5 cm, priced at $3700 USD, €3600 euro, £3200 GBP, $28400 HKD, ¥456840 JPY, ¥27900 CNY, $4750 CAD via Chanel boutiques.

Chanel: This BOY Is More Than Just A FRIEND

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: CHANEL

Boy. Friend. Put these two seemingly regular words together and you’ll get something totally new. Yes, you get boyfriend, which is defined as a frequent or regular male companion in a romantic relationship. Now, before you start picturing Chris Evans, Chris Pine or even Chris Pratt, let’s just stop right there and get serious with Chanel’s Boy.Friend instead, one that will never break your heart, never leave you and stay by your side for as long as you want it to.

IMAGE: CHANEL

One of Chanel’s icons-in-the-making, it is a chic and understated timepiece that will easily beat the amount of time your real-life companion spends with you. But its literal name aside, the beauty of this Boy.Friend lies in its unique shape and size, a fine balance of engineered masculinity on your feminine wrist, the Yang to your Yin, the Sun to your Moon.

Available in solid gold or stainless steel bodies (and don’t we all love a hard body on our boyfriends), the Boy.Friend now comes in 3 sizes (Large, Medium and Small), has pieces that come with or without diamonds (because we all love a man who can carry off a little bling) and finished with a variety of straps, from sexy exotic crocodile to stainless steel tweed and even lush smooth-to-the-touch satin.

IMAGE: CHANEL

A lady that wears the Boy.Friend dares to be who she really is – bold and confident, constantly pushing the boundaries in her style and outfit choices (from the everyday workwear pieces, to the casual days out on weekends), which the watch will blend effortlessly into, thanks to its androgynous good looks.

It’s a timepiece even Gabrielle Coco Chanel will definitely approve of, after all, it was she who in raiding her boyfriend’s wardrobe that saw to the birth of the little black jacket, and was so inspired by the thin slings on soldiers’ satchels that she added one to the 2.55. This was a woman who never felt constrained by what’s right and what’s wrong; instead she adapted as she saw fit and made it her own, which in a way also best exemplifies the story behind this timepiece.

Donning the watch gives you an immediate sense of power and strength – truthfully, who needs a boyfriend when you’ve got this Boy.Friend. Right, ladies?

Chanel Pre-Spring 2017 Vanity Kit

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: CHANEL

If you’re familiar with all things vintage when it comes to Chanel, you’ll be familiar with this, their Vanity Case that in the old days used to only come in quilted or Caviar leather, with an extra-large CC logo on the front. These days, with the reintroduction of these beauties, you’ll find them in a wider variety of materials, including Pre-Spring 2017′s rendition that comes in raffia.

Measuring 21 cm by 15 cm by 14 cm, it’s a cute little number with a top handle, and one that you’ll naturally use for storing your cosmetics and skincare. Or, you could just use it a cute day bag, something different from your usual sling or tote bags that will definitely turn heads as you saunter down the street. Priced at SGD1770 (it is just raffia after all), I’m pretty sure you’ll also find it more colours now than the one in Turquoisethat’s shown above.

IMAGE: CHANEL

If, however, you want something with a little more bling, how’s this instead? In toile fabric that’s then adorned with sequins, it’s the same size as the former, just shinier. Priced at SGD2010, head on down to Chanel Marina Bay Sands or Ngee Ann City and decide for yourself which one you love more.

Chanel Monsieur de Chanel Watch

Categories:Jewelry & Watches



Back at Baselworld in March, Chanel created a stir by launching its Monsieur de Chanel timepiece – a sophisticated watch that targeted a male consumer. With a wealth of experience in women’s watches, it was an unusual step but six months on, Hodinkee has put the Monsieur through its paces and found its appeal to be lasting.

In a detailed analysis, Hodinkee praises its sleek 40mm x 10mm dimensions and an aesthetic that features what it describes as “a compelling balance and sense of geometric rigor that’s classical and contemporary.” Featuring a jumping hour display and a three-day power reserve, the Monsieur’s Caliber 1 movement – constructed in house – is also worth shouting about. The article then makes the point that gender means little when it comes to watchmaking – quality is far more important.

Monsieur de Chanel is a limited edition of 300 pieces, 150 in both white gold and beige gold, at $36,000 and $34,500 respectively. More information can be found at Chanel.com.


This is an unexpected but very impressive announcement from a truly iconic brand in the fashion world – Chanel – and they unveiled a brand new, men's dedicated wristwatch called the Monsieur. Oh, and it's damn impressive. It's a jumping hour, retrograde with three-day power reserve, a great profile and stunning view from the back. Let's get into the Monsieur de Chanel now.

Monsieur de chanel watch
1 OF 4

The Monsieur de Chanel is Chanel's first dedicated men's watch and certainly first with complication, and what makes that even more important is that it was designed and built completely in-house. And what makes that even more special is that the watch looks fantastic on both the front and the back, and wears like a dream. So what is it? Obviously this is a jumping hour watch, with a pronounced hour display at 6 o'clock. The font used here was indeed designed for this watch – just as the font seen on the Slim d'Hermes was designed for that watch (sidebar: is designing a new font for every new watch now a thing? bc if so, things just got intense).

Directly above the hour at 6 o'clock, you have a lovely running seconds, and above that, you have a retrograde minute display. What is interesting about this retrograde compared to almost all others is that it A) jumps more than 180°, and B) can actually be set going backwards. Both of these are small things, but still show the technical approach that was taken to this watch. Now about that – the Monsieur de Chanel was designed and manufactured completely in-house. Think about that. This jumping hour was made by your wife/girlfriend/sister/SO's favorite, favorite fashion house. It took them five years, and they've gone ahead and brought in some of the best and brightest to make this happen, but it shows how committed they are to fine watchmaking. Oh, and when you turn it over? This.

Caliber 1 from Chanel
3 OF 4

Look at that thing. And lest we forget, this bad boy says "Chanel" on the other side. The entirity of Caliber 1, as it's being called, is black anthracite, and the look is downright mean. We have a beautiful central, circular bridge and star-shaped balance wheel. What is interesting to note, and something I had never heard until today, is that Chanel became an investor in high-end independent watchmaker and protegé of no one short of Philippe Dufour, Mr. Romain Gauthier in 2011, and some of the wheels you see here were in fact produced by him, though to Chanel's specifications. The rear of this watch is simply stunning, and frankly looks and feels well above its weight class. Here is the official pic:


What else do you need to know about the Monsieur de Chanel? It has a three-day power reserve from one barrel. It wears wonderfully at 40 mm wide by 10 mm thick, and it will be a limited edition of 300 pieces, 150 in both white gold and beige gold, at $36,000 and $34,500 respectively. The watch should be available as of this June, and you can sign up to receive more information here.

For a bit more on the background of Chanel timepieces and in particular this very impressive new high-end men's piece, read this story in yesterday's New York Times.


The watch with Instant Jumping Hour and Retrograde Minute is equipped with the manual-winding mechanical movement Calibre 1, Chanel´s first in-house high-watchmaking movement.


 

The Calibre 1 which offers a double complication, took five years to develop. The manual-winding mechanical movement made up of 170 components is a movement with integrated complications, meaning that the complications are integrated into the bottom plate and are not simply modules attached to a base. Chanel told me: “It all started with a desire, a vision, and a drawing. This watch did not exist before, it was dreamt up. Its movement did not exist before. It was designed to bring it alive. Its watchcase did not exist before either. It was created to house it.”

This is a slow-motion video, so please be patient … The jump of the hour hand and disc will occur after 30 seconds 

 

The Instant Jumping Hour, required the full mastery of micro-shocks and the energy consumption caused by the passage of the aluminium hour disc. With two barrels mounted in series, the power reserve of the watch is 3 days.

The second watchmaking prowess, the retrograde minute with a 240°-display on the dial (by the way, that´s quite rare), combined both rigorous aesthetics and technical performance. The retrograde minute’s bidirectional corrector allows easy adjustment of the watch and illustrates one of the key elements of the Chanel fine watchmaking vision.

Calibre 1 multiplies the references to the strong codes of the House Chanel. Matt and glossy black predominate in its black architectural movement in ADLC (Amorphous Diamond Like Carbon). The trim emphasizes all the curves of its bottom plate and bridges. A number of custom-made parts serve as a reminder of the octagonal shape of Place Vendome in Paris, where Chanel´s flagship boutique is located.

Chanel chose the lion, its most masculine emblem and a symbol of strength and power, as the signature of the watch which is found on its buckle and crown.

In 2016, 300 numbered movements will be produced of which 150 are for the Monsieur de Chanel watch in “beige gold” (a Chanel gold alloy) and 150 for the white gold model.

Chanel Monsieur de Chanel Watch

When Chanel dreams, they dream big. And in the case of their new watch for men, they went all nine yards and then some for the Monsieur de Chanel.

IMAGES: CHANEL

The design didn’t exist, it wasn’t inspired by something they already had in the archives, so it was dreamt. The movement didn’t exist, it wasn’t something already available in the market, so it was designed. The watchcase didn’t exist, the housing had to be something new, so it was created. A watch made for men that’s not only new, it stretched their dedicated watch manufacture G&F Châtelain SA to its fullest, where it was designed, developed, assembled and checked in-house by Chanel.

Featuring 2 patents exclusive to the watch, it features (amongst other highlights) retrograde minute with a 240° display and bi-directional adjustment. Even the typography on the dial was created specially for the watch, housed in a lightly domed sapphire crystal case that subtly plays with the effects of light. Of the 300 pieces made, 150 will come in beige gold (a hue that’s still unique to Chanel and was used most recently in their #CocoCrush jewellery collection), while the remaining 150 are in white gold.

IMAGE: CHANEL

Most importantly, it’s a breathtakingly beautiful watch, one that’s not only architectural and masculine that will sit handsomely on any wrist, but also one that expresses Chanel’s dedication to fine watchmaking to the highest degree. All you need to do is to head down to the Chanel Fine Jewellery Boutique at Ngee Ann City to try it on for yourself.
