I have a feeling Chanel only made a few of these rare evening cross body beauties, as they aren’t as commonly seen on the style circuit as the 2.55, Le Boy or Reissue bags. Some of these come in an unexpected shape and design that doesn’t follow the classic crowd, they’re the type of bag you would wear if you didn’t want to blend in, but instead be more of an isolated incident with your individual style.
Known for their timeless luxurious quilted designs that never date, Chanel are also good at thinking outside the box when it comes to their unique clutch bags. Fans of their make up compacts may recognise the compact powder shaped Minaudière bags, which come in black or white.
The cassette tape has to be my favourite – glossy, boxy and sturdy to hold all of your evening essentials, whilst retaining its daintiness and rock n’ roll edge. This definitely is on my rock chick accessory bucket list!
No5 is undoubtedly one of Coco Chanel’s most successful holy grail fragrances, loved by millions of women worldwide, so it made perfect sense for them to release a clutch based on that signature bottle shape.
The Resort 2017 must have box clutch packs somewhat of an earthy vintage vibe to it that looks as though it has been inspired by a luxury cigar box, if the medallions and references to Cuba and Paris are anything to go by. You can’t help but notice the centrepiece, the unmistakable cameo of Coco Chanel herself.
