CHANEL NUDE REISSUE 2.55 BAG

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

Chanel-Nude-Reissue-2.55-Bag

The Reissue 2.55 Bag is the true classic of the house, because it was created by the founder Gabrielle Chanel in the 1920’s. Since then, the 2.55 Bag slowly disappeared from fashion as it was replaced by endless of updated versions. However, the original edition was brought back to life thanks to Karl Lagerfeld in February 2005. Karl studied Gabrielle Chanel’s work and created the exact copy. The release date of the reissue version of February 2005 also happens to be the 50th anniversary of the creation of the original version.

The Reissue 2.55 Bag and the Classic Flap Bag are like siblings, they go hand in hand. So when smooth leather version of the Classic Flap Bag was released, the Reissue 2.55 Bag needed to follow as well.

The smooth leather version (without the quilting) of the Classic Flap Bag is called ‘Chanel Pure Classic Flap Bag’. The smooth leather version of the Reissue 2.55 Bag is called ‘Chanel Nude Reissue 2.55 Bag’.

There are a few more general details we need to share. The Nude Reissue 2.55 Bag is a not new bag; the first version was released in the Pre-Fall 2016 Collection. Since then, the style was temporary discontinued until the Pre-Fall 2018 Collection. And it’s not a coincidence that it was reintroduced for the Pre-Fall season. And who knows, this bag might get discontinued again and re-released two years later for the Pre-Fall 2020 Collection.

The Reissue 2.55 Nude Bag comes in two versions. One is the basic edition; the second one is slightly more luxurious. We will make a comparison later on.

The Design

Chanel-Nude-Reissue-2.55-Bag-15

The Smooth Nude Leather

So what makes the ‘Nude’ version different than the ‘Quilted’ version? Well first of all, it’s the leather. The classic edition of Reissue 2.55 Bag in diamond quilted is built from aged calfskin. The nude edition of the Reissue 2.55 Bag is made from smooth calfskin.

In the Chanel Leather Guide, we talk more about the ‘aged calfskin’ leather.

The leather is very important because it changes the experience of the bag. The diamond quilting feels busier, sophisticated and more classic, it can also attract more attention. The smooth leather version is more humble, quiet, relaxing and less busy. Choose the one that fits to your personality and taste.

Besides these two important adjustments, the Nude Reissue 2.55 Bag hasn’t changed in shape and measurement. The critical components like the Mademoiselle Lock, jewel-like double chain as well as the back pocket remained in tact.

The Special Edition Of The Nude Reissue 2.55 Bag

The special edition of the Nude 2.55 Bag – check the side with chain and multicolor

There is a unique version of the Nude Reissue 2.55 Bag. This style is embellished with multicolor sides in blue and red, designed with different material. The side is also refined with a thinner version of a necklace-like chain for decoration purpose. This chain is smaller than the shoulder chain strap.

As a side note; this special edition has been reintroduced for the Pre-Fall 2018 Collection. And to contribute to the Paris-Hamburg theme, it’s embellished with two beautiful charms. One is an anchor and it represents Hamburg’s famous port.

The Interior

GIVENCHY DUETTO SHOULDER BAG

CATEGORIES:Fashion

Givenchy-Duetto-Bag

Givenchy’s handbags are mostly created with bold and strong appearance. They’re inspired by the vision of mixing feminine and masculine together, which creates a unisex look. Carrying a Givenchy handbag resembles the independent and strength of a woman.

For the Fall 2017 Collection, this French luxury fashion introduces the Duetto Bag. The name Duetto means Duet, which means a performance by two people. And this name really reveals what the design of this bag is all about.

The Duetto Bag is constructed in bi-colors like black and white, but it’s also made in tri-colors like brown, white and black. The different colors are painted on the front flap, the center of the body and the edges of the body. This bag is very interesting because honestly, how many Givenchy handbags are made in bi or tri-colors, besides bags with flower prints and large logo’s?

Overall, the look is quite straightforward – it’s timeless. The front flap is made with an envelope style design. The bag has a rectangle shape and it comes with a leather shoulder strap with buckles to adjust to your comfort.

The colors are ideal to wear on the streets with casual outfits, or matching with urban clothes. The back comes with a pocket for instant access to your necessities. On the front, there is a leather strap hanging. This leather strap is attached to a zipper, which is used to open an interior pocket.

The inside is very structured. If you open the front flap, you will find a zippered pocket on the front. Then there is a large compartment to get all your essentials stored. On the back, there is an additional pocket if you need space for more stuff.

The Duetto Bag is measured 8.7’ x 5.1’ x 1.6’ (W x H x D) inches, and is priced at $990 USD, €750 euro, £690 GBP via Farfetch

There are also more styles available via Matches Fashion.

LOUIS VUITTON CROISETTE BAG OR METIS POCHETTE BAG?

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

Louis-vuitton-croisette-bag

The Croisette Bag

Last year in May, Louis Vuitton introduced the Croisette Bag for the first time. It was an instant-hit and we received a lot of positive comments. The Croisette Bag is compact but has flawless functionalities. The design is chic with sophisticated detailing. It comes with a boho-chic tassel, but can be removed if you don’t like it. You can carry this bag for special events or match your casual chic outfit.

The Metis Pochette Bag

But then a competitor arrived in November 2016; it’s the Louis Vuitton Metis Pochette Bag. This bag is bigger, but has the same functionalities like the Croisette Bag – both come with handle for hand carry and leather strap for shoulder carry. The Metis Pochette Bag has a rectangle shape and has more pockets and compartments than the Croisette Bag. While the Croisette is better for casual days or the weekends, the Pochette Metis is a better choice as a workbag or for the busy woman who needs to carry a lot of essentials everyday.

The expansion of the Metis Pochette Bag line

If you look at what Louis Vuitton has done lately, the Metis Pochette bag has been extended from basic Monogram Canvas to Monogram Empreinte and other rare prints like the Monogram Reverse Canvas. The Monogram Empreinte is luxurious leather that changes the look to modern elegant.

The journey of the Croisette Bag was less exciting. Until today it’s only available in Damier Ebene Canvas or Damier Azur Canvas. So what does this mean? Is the Metis Pochette Bag more popular?

Which one is better?

I think each of them have their own style and use. The Croisette Bag is smaller in size and has less compartments but it’s nice to wear for the shopping days or at lunch meetings. The tassel is playful and will go well with simple casual outfit like jeans and tee’s

The Metis Pochette Bag is bigger and has lots of useful compartment. It’s ideal for work but can be carried in the weekends as well. It’s a practical bag especially when you need to carry a lot of essentials. The Metis Pochette in Reversed Monogram or Monogram Empreinte creates a different look for different occasions.

In terms of pricing, the Croisette Bag is slightly cheaper, it’s priced at $1590 USD in Canvas. The Pochette Metis Bag in canvas is priced at $1780 USD, but it’s also bigger.

In terms of sizes, the Croissette is measured 9.8′ x 6.7′ x 2.5′ inches (L x H x W) while the Pochette Metis is measured 9.8′ x 2.5′ x 3.5′ inches (L x H x W). So the length is the same, but the Pochette Metis is bigger in height and width because of the extra compartments.

What do you think? If you need to choose, which bag would you go for and why?
