Love It or Leave It: Fendi’s New Logo Bag

Other Brands

I’ve been a Fendi evangelist for years. The brand does an impressive job in a lot of areas: it comes out with new bags that don’t feel like they’re piggybacking on other brands’ popular designs, it’s one of few brands that has real success updating older styles for new seasons to regain momentum, it successfully toes the line between irreverence and luxury with its embellishments. With Fendi’s newest motif, though, I find my personal opinion a bit split. On the brand’s Fall 2017 runway, you probably noticed a lot of the new Fendi Kan I Bagswith a very particular embellishment: an open hoop front and center with a metal F seemingly toppled over inside it. Fendi has gone all-in with the idea, releasing lots of new bags that use the open F in different ways. With most of them, I feel sort of ambivalent—it seems like Fendi, in its infinite creativity, could have found something a little more surprising to do with the negative space the circle creates. fendi kan i small python bag, $2,900 via neiman marcus When the circle is used as an element of a larger design idea, though, I’m all in. My favorite example is on the bag above, where it serves as a place to anchor python petals reminiscent of a snakeskin sunflower. In my mind, embellishments are always done best when they meld decoration with the bag’s existing elements, which is exactly what we have here. Most of the implementations for this season are straightforward, but I’m excited to see how Fendi will fill and accent the open space in seasons to come. There are a million potential ways to do it, and variety is where the brand really excels.

LOUIS VUITTON CITY STEAMER ONE HANDLE BAG

Louis Vuitton

Louis-Vuitton-City-Steamer-One-Handle-Bag

Louis Vuitton City Steamer One Handle Bag

Sometimes a new idea is not entirely new. Sometimes you can take two concepts and put them together to create a new way of seeing things. Perhaps that’s how the Louis Vuitton City Steamer One Handle Bag is created for the Fall winter 2017 Collection. You see, not long ago we introduced the City Steamer Bag, which is now on its way to become the house’s classic. After that, Louis Vuitton releases the One Handle Bag, inspired by the historic trunkmaker. Now both of these bags have been melted together, clever isn’t?

Louis Vuitton One Handle Bag

The Design

The Louis Vuitton City Steamer One Handle Bag is just like the original City Steamer Bag. It’s a tote bag with the signature LV lock crafted in the center. The shape is the same as well, but there are also differences.

One of the biggest changes is the front flap and the iconic Torron handle. There is just ONE handle while the original City Steamer has two. The front flap and the Torron handle are both copied from the Louis Vuitton One Handle Bag.

Another surprising new addition is the chain for shoulder carry. It’s unexpected because the original City Steamer Bag as well as the One Handle Bag is both designed with leather strap. This chain short, but beautiful and adds an extra touch of luxury to the overall look. On the back of the bag, you will also find a zipped compartment in case you need instant access to your essentials. Behind the front flap, there is also a pocket with turnlock and loop for padlock.

This bag is made from Veau Perle, which is durable calf leather.

The Interior

One advantage of the City Steamer Bag is the well-structured and spacious interior. Inside you will find one large compartment and one double pocket to store your stuff.

The Sizes And Prices

This bag measures 9.8’ x 8.3’ x 3.9’ (L x H x W) inches and is priced at $4850 USD, $5800 CAD, €3400 euro, £3150 GBP, $35000 HKD, ¥32500 CNY, ¥540000 JPY via Louis Vuitton boutiques.

Alexus Bucket Bag

Other Brands

IMAGE: ALEXUS

If you know me, you’ll have figured out that I love my bags structured. Not that I have anything against slouchy and soft, but a structured bag is just more aesthetically pleasing to me. And with that in mind, here’s something from local label Alexus that’s caught my eye.

Crafted in an independent atelier with over 40 years of experience creating leather goods for big luxury brands and smaller designers alike (I’m assuming the bags are made in Italy) and using only premium quality calfskin that’s finished with Swiss-made Riri zips, the 19 cm by 19 cm bucket comes equipped with a top handle, along with a pair of removable slings. Yes, guys, not one, but two slings, one thin, one thick, so you can decide on any given day which one would work better for you (or your outfit).

The best thing? The bucket bag (which comes in two colours, Black and Graphite, by the way) is now priced at USD280 (around SGD383 after conversion). In other words, for something that looks this good and presumably made this well (I haven’t seen it in person so I can’t vouch for it), it’s definitely worth the SGD383 you’ll be spending on it. What’s more, express international shipping is included in the price so you don’t really have a reason not to.

LOUIS VUITTON POCHETTE FELICIE BAG IN EPI LEATHER

Louis Vuitton

Louis-Vuitton-Pochette-Felicie-Bag

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the cutest bag of them all. Well, the Louis Vuitton Pochette Felicie Bag is certainly one of them as it has been around for some time. But just recently, this mini evening companion is refined in Epi Leather, which creates a complete new experience.

If you look at the Pochette Felicie Bag, it’s certainly true when people say that small things can create a huge impact. This is a clutch bag, but it functions like a medium-sized handbag. The front is designed with an envelope-like flap – beautiful in triangle style. The center is made with a press-stud closure and it comes with a removable silver chain.

This bag is much more than just a wallet; it can be used as a clutch or converted into a glamorous shoulder bag. Carry it from day to night, from work to the evening gala.

The original Louis Vuitton Pochette Felicie Bag was made in monogram canvas. But for the modern woman, she will opt into the Epi Leather, which looks so bright and fresh. And if that’s not enough to brag, the LV signature has been charmly embellished on the bottom side of the bag.

The interior is surprisingly generous for a mini bag. It features one large compartment, an inside flat pocket, 2 removable parts; zip pocket and flat pocket with 8 credit card slots. It measures 8.3’ x 4.7’ x 1.2’ inches and is priced at £775 euro, £720 GBP, $2050 CAD, $9400 HKD, ¥127440 JPY, ¥8700 CNY, $1380 AUD via Louis Vuitton boutiques.

When it’s the summer, prepare for the fall. And when it’s fall, prepare for the summer. Chloe is about the drop the Fall Winter 2017 Collection and it’s a good thing to check what we can expect from the handbags. In this post, we will be covering the most beautiful handbags and we can already hint you that round and curvy are the new trend at Chloe’s house.

Chloe-Fall-Winter-2017-Bag-Collection

It’s either the updated version of the latest Nile Bag or it’s a new Nile-inspired handbag. The top is crafted with metal handles, but the last time Chanel tried it, our community didn’t like it. But Chloe might change the game as they have their own style – casual chic. If you take a closer look, the round shape, the soft suede leather combined with leather curved decoration does look ladylike and stunning. The handles in gold enhance the design by making it more elegant and stylish. So what do you think? Go or a no go?

Chloe-Fall-Winter-2017-Bag-Collection-16

Part suede and part leather (usually the flap) is the new trend set by Chloe. This new combo of leathers is embellished in the latest classic Faye handbag. The Chloe Drew Bag is following the trend and for the Fall Winter 2017 Collection, new styles will be introduced, but also new colors. The part suede and part leather design is quite interesting – the suede creates a softer side of the shade while the leather is boosting it. And together with the jewelry-like chain, the bag looks stunning.

Chanel Mini Classic Flap Bag (Square)

You’re about to get to a nice treat. On this special post, we’re going to share the latest Chanel Bag Prices in GBP and in Euro. The prices in the UK are not the same as in Europe and that’s because of the differences in tax regulations and the currency exchange. And besides the prices, we will also uncover the style codes and the sizes.

The first few Chanel handbags that we will be discussing are the House’s iconic handbags. And because of their uniqueness, we need to talk about it extensively, including its history and all the tiny little details. Isn’t that exciting?

All right then, let’s begin the journey.

Chanel Classic Flap Bag Prices

The Chanel Classic Flap Bag is what Chanel stands for. Not only is this bag a classic, but every details of the design is timeless. From all the handbags in Chanel’s assortment, the Classic Flap Bag is one of the most sought after by shoppers all around the world.

The story started in 1983, Karl Lagerfeld was named the Artistic Director of Chanel. But do note that Chanel wasn’t as popular as today, so Karl did a great work of putting this Fashion House on the global map.

The Chanel Reissue Bag is created by the original founder Coco Chanel. Since then there were a lot of modified versions put on the market. In fact, there were so many that it became complicated. So Karl Lagerfeld decided to discontinued them all and created one ‘perfect’ flap bag that ultimately became the trademark of this brand. This bag is the Chanel Classic Flap Bag.

While Coco Chanel designed the ‘mademoiselle lock’, it was Karl Lagerfeld who made the interlocking CC Closure. Basically, the Chanel Classic Flap Bag is the next generation of the first Chanel Reissue Bag and it went straight to become part of the ‘Timeless Classic Collection’ or the ‘Permanent Collection’.

The fame of the Chanel Classic Flap Bag is unbelievable. It has touched millions of people around the world and despite of the steep price increases every year, the amount of people wanting to buy this bag keeps increasing. So it’s recession-free, price-increase-free and we think it’s even a better investment than the stock market.

Before we start talking about the Chanel Bag Prices in Euro and GBP, let’s cover the sizes first.

This bag comes in eight sizes; the Extra Mini, New Mini, Square Mini, Small, Medium, Jumbo and Maxi, XXL.

Chanel Reissue 2.55 Bag Prices

In February 1955, Gabrielle Coco Chanel introduced the Chanel 2.55 Bag. It was the day that a legend was born. Every part of this bag was designed with a reason. Some was created because she was inspired, other parts are made because she thinks it would fit better for a woman. The Chanel 2.55 Bag was actually born because Coco Chanel was tired of carrying a bag on her hands or arms. She wanted a hands-free handbag so that you can do other things with your hands.

Chanel-Reissue-255-bag-Details

The beautiful chain on the Chanel 2.55 Bag looks like a necklace, it’s represents the love that she has for jewelry. It needed a double chain to make it easier to sling on the shoulder or your arms. The brownish lining has the same color like the uniform at the orphanage, the place where Coco Chanel grew up. A zip pocket is hidden inside the flap, some say it’s where Coco Chanel hides her love letters. The famous lock on the bag is named the Mademoiselle Lock and it is reference to Coco Chanel for never marrying. The quilting was inspired by the quilted jackets of the Jockey players.

Karl Lagerfeld re-made the original 2.55 Bag exactly how Coco Chanel designed it in 1955. He released it in February 2005 to celebrate the Chanel 2.55 Bag’s 50th year anniversary. Then the Chanel Bag 2.55 Reissue Bag was born. Reissue was added because it means a new issue of the bag.

So here are the Chanel Bag Prices in SGD, AUD, JPY and CNY (Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, Japan and China). You can also find the style codes and sizes below.

Chanel Boy Quilted Bag Prices

We clearly remember the moment when the first Chanel Boy Bag came into our life because it was around that time that Bragmybag was born.

The story started in 2012, the Chanel Boy Bag was presented during the runway and then released in the Spring 2012 Collection. The Boy Bags of today weren’t like the first-editions. This image will show you what we mean:

First-Chanel-Boy-Bags-2012

It wasn’t quilted, the Boy Clasp had a round design in the center and on the side, you could find the CHANEL logo. The fashion world took notice of the Boy Bag and Karl Lagerfeld re-designed it several times afterwards. The logo on the back was removed and the Boy Clasp is a bit classier today. Then finally, another iconic bag emerged; the Chanel Quilted Boy Bag is added to the ‘Permanent Collection’.

The Chanel Boy Quilted Bag has a different look than the Classic Flap Bag and the Reissue 2.55 Bag. It’s stronger, sharper and bolder. The name ‘Boy’ is the perfect clarification of the design, with large and louder chains, and masculine elements; it became a bag that everyone desired.

Iconic bags are made out of history, stories and inspirations and there are more to tell. Just like the other classic bags, the Chanel Boy Bag was inspired by Coco Chanel’s playfulness with masculine style. Karl Lagerfeld explained it more clearly: ‘Chanel used men’s underwear to make dresses, she had this boyish attitude and it is the very spirit of Chanel’.

Then Karl Lagerfeld was asked about the name ‘Boy Bag’, he said: ‘The boyish attitude, she’d picked it up from Boy Cape;, the great love of her life…Indeed, the bag’s called Boy Chanel’.

So here are the Chanel Boy Quilted Bag prices in Euro and GBP & sizes:
