Chanel #PreCollection 2017: These Boots Are Made For Walking

Other Brands


A highlight piece for Chanel’s #PreCollection 2017 collection are these urban-looking suede and satin mid-cuff boots you see here that come in myriad colours, all of which work effortlessly well with a pair of pants, a crisp top (the Gabrielle Chanel tee, perhaps?) and your current fave Chanel handbag.

Standing tall in a 9 cm high heel, these boots are given the classic two-tone treatment with the black satin toe caps that’s one of the definitive Chanel iconic shoes. Take a walk in the park, (oh by park we mean Gardens by the Bay rather than MacRitchie…) and look every bit chic as you strut around in these statement-making, picture-perfect boots. Finished with the words Gabrielle Chanel and Coco with the CC logo on the other side, these two-toned boots (SGD2010) are now available in boutiques as part of Chanel’s #PreCollection lineup.

Speaking of the lineup, walk round the Ephemeral Boutique at Marina Bay Sands, and you’ll find even more of these two-toned suede variations that come in the form of a 4 cm and 9 cm pump and another street favourite ballerina silhouette. Aside from these specials, expect to find even more shoes (because let’s be honest, who doesn’t love shoes?) like the glittered slip-ons, pearl espadrilles and gladiator-like sandals that’s pure love.

First introduced during the Spring Summer 2016 Collection, the Chanel Classic Shopping Tote is a new addition to the house’s classic line. The design resembles a lot like the Classic Flap Bag, but in a tote bag version. And it also reminds us of the discontinued Grand Shopping Tote.


Chanel Grand Shopping Tote (GST)

Chanel Classic Shopping Tote vs Chanel Grand shopping Tote

The Grand Shopping Tote is also known as the GST and it was discontinued in 2015. This bag was extremely popular due to its practical design and the reasonable price tag. When you need a shoulder bag, you went for the Classic Flap Bag. But when you wanted a tote bag, then it was naturally to buy the Chanel Grand Shopping Tote.

The Chanel GST came in two sizes; the large size was called the Chanel GST XL. This bag was crafted in soft diamond quilting and features a printed-version of the CC logo on the center of the bag. This logo created a sense of vintage while the woven chain strap balanced it with a modern touch.

The interior was large enough to store all your daily essentials and more. With woven chain strap, the bag could be carried on the shoulder, on the crook of the arm or just by hand. It was a very handy handbag. Besides being practical, the design doesn’t scream CHANEL at all, which makes it perfect to use as an everyday bag.

The Design

The design on the Chanel Classic Shopping Tote looks a lot like the iconic Classic Flap Bag. Just take a closer look at the features – the diamond quilting, the interlocking CC logo, the woven chain strap and it even comes with a back pocket. All of these components resemble to the Classic Flap Bag, which are inspired by Coco Chanel’s original 2.55 Bag.

The GST is made with double eyelets, linked to the woven chain strap. But the Chanel Classic Shopping Tote is made with just one eyelet on each side. In our opinion, the new design is more intriguing and heart-melting. And also, the printed CC logo is swapped with the interlocking CC, which changes the whole appearance from vintage to modern.

The Interior

The interior is secured with a quilted leather strap. The inside is crafted with one large compartment, featuring an extra zip pocket and few small open pockets for structuring your items. The size of the interior makes it an ideal shopping bag for the weekend or just for work. It’s an excellent substitute of the discontinued GST design and it can be considered as a collectable item.

Sporting a more modish and fashion-forward style, these Chanel Flap O Cases look like a modified version of the original and iconic Chanel O Case. Comparing them side by side, you’ll instantly notice the difference if you have keen eyes for details – it’s that extra front flap and compartment, which makes all the difference.

Think Chanel’s Première timepiece and a number of key distinctive features come to mind. That octagonal shape which channels the design of the Place Vendôme, along with those unmistakable chain-links synonymous with the house of Chanel.

And with the new Première Rock Red, the French luxury house takes it a notch further with a colour that’s also unmistakably classic Chanel. Sporting a bright red leather strap that’s interlinked with the chain, this triple-tour beauty comes with an exquisite mother-of-pearl dial, its length allowing you to wear it one of many different ways.

The perfect Valentine Day’s gift since it is also limited to just 1000 pieces worldwide, each Première Rock Red timepiece (SGD6500) also bears the engraving ‘Limited Edition’ at the back and are sold exclusively at the Chanel Fine Jewellery Boutique at Ngee Ann City.

Chanel is a timeless name when it comes to bags. Should you ever wish to purchase another Boy Chanel bag and you’re quite undecided which one to purchase, maybe you should start asking whether it’s Chevron or Diamond Quilting which appeals most to your taste.

The Diamond Quilting is a classic. Timeless, eternal, and quintessential, this is the signature Chanel quilting. It has been around for a few decades now and we have seen celebrities clinging on to a Boy Chanel in Diamond quilting for ages and we are unanimous in saying that this one is a keeper. Withstanding the tests of time, the Boy Chanel in diamond quilting is a definition of a true bag beauty.

If modern, chic, and fashion-forward style is your cup of tea, then the Boy Chanel in Chevron Quilting might be your best bet. Versatile and trendy, this design might be a runner up in the Chanel world.

So if you are grabbing for another Chanel Boy Bag, which one should it be? Should it be the timeless Chevron or the stylish Diamond Quilting?
