These bags appear not be really special, but there is an interesting story behind the style. Let me quote what the founder Coco Chanel once said: ‘Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too’. Then she further explains the reasons: ‘Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony’.
And now re-think about the style and colors of these freshly made handbags from the Spring Summer 2018 Collection Act 2.
The first bag is a shoulder bag, the second bag is a drawstring bag, but both are created with the same ivory and black shades. The colors represent the ideas of Coco Chanel and it immediately remind you of the label as well. Just consider the colors of their boutiques and the Chanel box you get when purchasing a bag.
It’s made with grained crumpled calfskin. This type of leather is the softer version of the aged calfskin crafted on the famous Reissue 2.55 Bag. The crumpled calfskin is quite new and was first-introduced on the So Black Classic Flap Bag in 2017. But the grainy version is even newer.
Both handbags are beautiful and designed with the signature CC logo. The center part is usually colored in ivory while the edges and the shoulder strap are painted in black. The silver hardware is also the perfect choice to supplement overall look of the style. Really lovely!
