ChanelCruiseCuba Canvas & Sequins Backpack

IMAGE: CHANEL

Much has been said about Chanel’s ongoing efforts to align its prices worldwide, which in layman’s terms simply means that if you were to buy anything from the French luxury house no matter where you are, you’ll pretty much be paying more or less the same as the someone in London, Paris or New York City. And while there are naysayers out there who believe that their prices are only cheapest in Paris (or Europe, for that matter), I’ve got news for you.

On a recent trip to Paris for the #ChanelMetiersdArt show #ParisCosmopolite which I’ll be covering here in due time, we naturally indulged in what us Singaporeans do best. Shop, that is. And one of the bags that I was checking out included this, the Canvas & Sequins Backpackfrom the #ChanelCruiseCuba collection. Priced at EUR3900 in Paris, it’s not a bag that I would actually buy, though I did think it was an interesting juxtaposition. One that mixed military green canvas (see left) with row upon row of pink sequins. Measuring some 40 cm by 36.5 cm by 19 cm, the backpack comes with brown leather handles and a drawstring closure that ends with a ruthenium-finished buckle.

Now here’s the interesting part. It’s priced at EUR3900 in Paris, which makes it around SGD5800 or so after conversion (I used XE, which is not 100% accurate, but I use it more as a guide). In Singapore, however, the same bag retails for SGD5450, which makes it even cheaper in Singapore. Yes, it’s cheaper. Which is certainly puzzling.

And while I can’t say if it’s the same for all the bags that Chanel has, it’s good to do 2 things moving forward. Stop assuming that it will be cheaper overseas, and always check (and double-check) the prices with a reliable source before you commit. Because that’s exactly what I’ll be doing from now on.

Mulberry x Cara Delevingne Quilted Backpack

Categories:Other Brands

Mulberry Cara Delevingne Backpack

What can I say? I have never been a huge fan of designer backpacks. You know, backpacks that are too small and handbag-like to actually function as a real backpack. But they don’t really function as handbags either and, personally, I think they look a little silly. Yet, these designer backpacks have been popping up at lot lately. Micheal Kors, Rebecca Minkoff, Gucci, Valentino, and even Balenciaga have tried their hand in the backpack trend. Today, however, I stumbled upon a backpack style that I feel like I could live with. Meet the Mulberry x Cara Delevingne Mini Quilted Backpack!

Designed in collaboration with designer Cara Delevingne, this backpack is different from most other styles I have seen. Why? The backpack straps are removable, meaning this bag doesn’t have to be worn as a backpack. It can also double as a satchel or a shoulder bag. Versatility is definitely key here! This bag can easily adapt to whatever the day brings. But I suppose the gorgeous quilting doesn’t hurt either. Plus it gives this piece a very classic look. Nevertheless, this is still a somewhat casual style. At least for me, it is. I see it pairing with a casual skirt or even skinny jeans.

Availability:
Net-a-Porter!
Saks Fifth Avenue

Mulberry Delevingne Mini Quilted Backpack 
The Mini Cara Delevingne Bag is a three-in-one style, uniting Mulberry’s English attitude to beautiful practicality and the inimitable personality of British model Cara Delevingne. Designed to take you anywhere, it can be worn on the back, shoulder or carried hand-held. The Mini version is perfect for the ‘hands-free’ devotees who need to travel light. The bags are made in England at Mulberry’s factories in Somerset and this is proudly stamped on the bottom of each bag, inspired by Cara’s own made in England tattoo on the sole of the foot.

Cara wanted each bag to be like opening a letter with a lovely surprising touch. Inside you can find a small lion rivet and a heart shaped patch based on Cara’s own heart tattoo. Cara said: “I want there to be hidden gems inside, based on things that are personal to me, which my tattoos definitely are.” Retails for $1590
