ChanelCruiseCuba Canvas & Sequins Backpack

IMAGE: CHANEL

Much has been said about Chanel’s ongoing efforts to align its prices worldwide, which in layman’s terms simply means that if you were to buy anything from the French luxury house no matter where you are, you’ll pretty much be paying more or less the same as the someone in London, Paris or New York City. And while there are naysayers out there who believe that their prices are only cheapest in Paris (or Europe, for that matter), I’ve got news for you.

On a recent trip to Paris for the #ChanelMetiersdArt show #ParisCosmopolite which I’ll be covering here in due time, we naturally indulged in what us Singaporeans do best. Shop, that is. And one of the bags that I was checking out included this, the Canvas & Sequins Backpackfrom the #ChanelCruiseCuba collection. Priced at EUR3900 in Paris, it’s not a bag that I would actually buy, though I did think it was an interesting juxtaposition. One that mixed military green canvas (see left) with row upon row of pink sequins. Measuring some 40 cm by 36.5 cm by 19 cm, the backpack comes with brown leather handles and a drawstring closure that ends with a ruthenium-finished buckle.

Now here’s the interesting part. It’s priced at EUR3900 in Paris, which makes it around SGD5800 or so after conversion (I used XE, which is not 100% accurate, but I use it more as a guide). In Singapore, however, the same bag retails for SGD5450, which makes it even cheaper in Singapore. Yes, it’s cheaper. Which is certainly puzzling.

And while I can’t say if it’s the same for all the bags that Chanel has, it’s good to do 2 things moving forward. Stop assuming that it will be cheaper overseas, and always check (and double-check) the prices with a reliable source before you commit. Because that’s exactly what I’ll be doing from now on.

There plenty of backpacks available today, but the Chloe Faye Backpack is definitely one of Bragmybag’s favorite so far. But why?

Chic, classy and affordable are the reasons. The Faye Bag Collection is a unique line, the front is crafted with an oversized hoop and attached with a ladylike chain to side – this design is not only fabulous, but one-of-a-kind as well.

What’s more? The design is timeless, with a touch of minimalistic. It’s made in the typical Chloe’s mix of colors like brown and orange, which goes perfectly with almost everything casual-chic in your wardrobe. You can carry it for work, weekend or travelling. You can carry it in the autumn as well as in the fall.

Chloe has been heavily promoting the Faye Bag, because it’s very promising. And who knows, perhaps it will be the next iconic bag.

In this post you will see more detailed images of how the bag looks when you carry it. Let us know what you think in the comment section.

CHANEL OVERSIZED QUILTED BACKPACK

Categories:Other Brands

After long hours of research, you finally completed your wish list. Then another unknown bag comes along and confuse your initial plan. Meet the new Chanel XL Quilted Bag.

Not featured on Chanel’s official website, but the Chanel XL Quilted Bag should be considered in your plan-of-purchase or your-next-shopping-spree plan. Now here’s what we know:

It’s a new backpack from Chanel. The design is brand-new, so nothing similar has ever been done in the past – with large and thick quilting, it feels like Prada’s Bomber Bags. The front flap is made with the signature CC logo and the top is adorned with leather-woven-chain-strap.

The material feels very strong, so it’s a nice backpack when you are on a city trip or climbing the Mountain Everest (obviously, you will need more than that).

As in all backpacks, the interior is large enough to fit all your essentials. So what do you think?

Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Mini Mono Backpack

Categories:Louis Vuitton

And then, there were 2! Just 2 seasons ago, Louis Vuitton came out with the mini version of their monogram backpack, modified the design, and changed the vachetta trims into black leather. I personally thought the bag was sooo cute and actually quite easy to carry, and the only thing that made me think twice really was its price. For such a small bag, the price would’ve been equivalent to 2 monogram speedy bags.

A handful of people I know bought the medium version of the Palm Springs backpack. But the medium backpack didn’t differ much in function compared to the Gucci version. I preferred this mini size because of the strap versatility.

This coming Fall, there is another version of the mini mono backpack– the brown shades of the monogram canvas have been reversed. Peeps, how do you find it, and would you have preferred it over the original one?

Ok, so I stared at the bag for a bit. And I thought the color resembled something that would have come out of this dude….
