Chanel’s Valentine’s Day Items

While almost all the designer houses are going along with the classic Red theme for Valentine’s Day, Chanel seems to be taking the Metallic Gold and Nudes route in terms of colour scheme. Although their 2012 Valentine’s Day collection consists of other items like accessories, jewels, shoes and eyewear, I’ll only be featuring the Leather Goods and SLGs for the Valentine’s Day Edition.

First up, the leather goods.

Evening Clutch inspired by the 2.55 in Lambskin RM 6,840

I have to say though, that I’m not really feeling this rollover top because it really reminds me of a sandwich bag or well, the way in which we all tend to roll over the top of our takeaway lunches, don’t you think? Also, while metallic leathers might look pretty and a little sparkly when they’re spanking new, I’m not usually a fan because the metallic coating tends to “tarnish” and get patchy due to friction with one’s clothing; “tarnishing” is something that is unavoidable when it comes to metallic leathers, no matter how careful we are.

As for the next Valentine’s Day exclusive item, I’m sure you won’t be surprised to know that I actually really like this piece – exotic skins being the major contributing factor to this 😉 And although I am not at all a fan of alligator and crocodile skins, I really like this one.

Small Waxed Alligator Classic Flap Bag: RM 9300

Needless to say, this next item is my favourite out of the entire collection! Simple, classic, chic. And yes, another item of the exotic skin sort..

Velvet Python Evening Clutch with Clasp Closure: RM 9,790

Up next, the Valentine’s Day Exclusive SLGs…

Roses are traditionally the flowers said to be the most romantic (and best!) especially when it comes to professing your love to someone. But for Chanel, nothing says it better than the iconic Camellia!

Camellia Embossed Lambskin Cosmetic Pouch RM 1,970
Camellia Embossed Lambskin iPad Sleeve RM 2,580
Camellia Embossed Lambskin Key Pouch RM 1,380
Small Iridescent Metallic Lambskin Pochette with Compartments: RM 2,510

I’ve actually seen this pochette up close (not the metallic version though) and it actually has a centre zip compartment that separates the 2 open compartments on each side of the zip. The pochette is held close with the button snap closure. Perfect for stowing your iPhone and credit cards and some cash when you’re out lunching.
