Chanel: Mademoiselle Privé Seoul

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGES: BAGAHOLICBOY

If you’ve been following my antics on Instagram the last couple of days, you’ll know the following: I’m currently in Seoul where I attended the preview of Mademoiselle Privé, an exhibition that gives you an up-close and personal view of Chanel’s origins and the French luxury house’s many sources of inspiration. The second chapter of this exhibition (the first Mademoiselle Privé was held in London in 2015), it will run from 23 June to 19 July 2017 at D Museum. Chanel fans, if you’re heading to Seoul anytime soon, this is THE place you want to go to get an even better understanding of the brand you love.

So what can you expect from this exhibition? Lots. From the moment you step into the museum, you are greeted by a floor-to-ceiling installation of Gabrielle Chanel’s Coromandel lacquered screens’ patterns that span over the staircase as you walk down towards the next exhibit. There’s a room devoted to Gabrielle Chanel’s first boutique that originally just sold hats, there’s another room featuring large totem sculptures that reference Chanel’s codes and symbols –lucky charms, patterns, specific colours, basically all that was dear to Coco Chanel now reinterpreted by Karl Lagerfeld.

There’s a room dedicated to the iconic fragrance, N°5. There’s a fabric maze made up of everything used at Chanel’s ateliers (think large swaths of lace, silk chiffon and tweed hung from ceiling to floor) that you have to make your way through.

On the second floor it gets even better. Going through or in this case, going past Coco Chanel’s Mademoiselle Privé studio door, you are greeted by 17 actresses, models and friends of the house, wearing Haute Couture and adorned with high jewellery from the Bijoux de Diamants collection. Also my favourite space in the whole exhibition, this is Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel at his best, bringing together large-scale portraits printed on paper-thin sheets that flutter up and down as exhibit constantly moves.

There’s a giant cage at the back of the hall featuring the above-mentioned jewellery pieces, and there’s a ‘photo-booth’ featuring black and whites of all your favourites (if you are a fan of G-Dragon, Irene Kim and Soo Joo Park, this is where you head straight into).

Another Chanel experience that should not be missed, it’s also free admission to all; you just have to download the Mademoiselle Privé app via App Store to book your tickets. There are also workshops scheduled, including one for Lesage (embroiderer), another for Lemarié (feather and flower maker), one for high jewellery and N°5 workshops highlighting the craftsmanship and savoir-faire of Chanel. In other words, don’t miss out!

First Chanel Price Increase for Most of Europe in 2017

Categories:Other Brands

WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING, PRICES ON THE CHANEL ITEMS YOU’VE HAD YOUR EYES ON WENT UP THIS WEEK…

While you were sleeping (and possibly planning that next handbag purchase), Chanel increased its prices in much of Europe. In typical Chanel fashion, there was no warning aside from rumors circulating on the PurseForum that I’ve been following for a while. (I’ve been told often that tPF breaks news before even the majority of sales associates know about it.) There’s a bit of good news and bad news, so I’m here to break it down for you.

Good (?) news is that the price increase only affected mainland Europe and took effect Monday. If you’re in the USA like we are, you are fine, as well as other countries including Canada, Australia, Singapore, the United Kingdom and more. While a price increase is always a rather unfortunate reality, this one wasn’t one of Chanel’s worst, as the brand has been known to raise its prices by up to 10% in the past.

The price increases range from 5% to 7%, depending on the item, while some seasonal styles and the newly released Chanel Gabrielle Bag were not impacted.

CHANEL ITEMS PRICE INCREASE
Flap Bags 5%
Reissue Bags 5%
Wallet on Chains 7%
Boy Bags 7%
Wallets 5%

You can check out Chanel.com on the European site to see newly updated prices. We will work on updating our Chanel price list, but to give some examples of the changes, the WOC went from €1740 to €1865, the Chanel Jumbo Classic Flap went from €4750 to €4990 and the Chanel New Medium Boy Bag went from €4150 to €4440.

Chanel Pre-Spring 2017 Vanity Kit

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: CHANEL

If you’re familiar with all things vintage when it comes to Chanel, you’ll be familiar with this, their Vanity Case that in the old days used to only come in quilted or Caviar leather, with an extra-large CC logo on the front. These days, with the reintroduction of these beauties, you’ll find them in a wider variety of materials, including Pre-Spring 2017′s rendition that comes in raffia.

Measuring 21 cm by 15 cm by 14 cm, it’s a cute little number with a top handle, and one that you’ll naturally use for storing your cosmetics and skincare. Or, you could just use it a cute day bag, something different from your usual sling or tote bags that will definitely turn heads as you saunter down the street. Priced at SGD1770 (it is just raffia after all), I’m pretty sure you’ll also find it more colours now than the one in Turquoisethat’s shown above.

IMAGE: CHANEL

If, however, you want something with a little more bling, how’s this instead? In toile fabric that’s then adorned with sequins, it’s the same size as the former, just shinier. Priced at SGD2010, head on down to Chanel Marina Bay Sands or Ngee Ann City and decide for yourself which one you love more.
