And here’s what you need to know about it. The latest, newest bag from the luxury French house is a trendy and trendsetting bucket bag that’s all minimalist-chic with a touch of familiarity. We’re talking about the supple form of the bag, with familiar details of overstitching and chain detailing, complete with the Chanel CC logo.
Of course, what separates this, elegantly called the Drawstring, from the rest is the ultra-soft leather that the bag’s crafted with, said to be cut from the most precious part of calf leather skin. If you can, take a closer look at its quality; the Chanel ateliers have used their expert technical skills to treat the skin well, in order to preserve its air of nobility and velvety-smooth texture.
As soft as peach skin, that is, which, over time, will acquire a nice patina that’s unique to you. The drawstring is available in black, beige, mocha, burgundy, blue and khaki, and in two different sizes.
Just as well, the soft leather bags that emerge from the Métiers d’art Paris in Rome 2015/16 collection doesn’t just include one silhouette — there’s also the iconic 2.55 bag, now reinvented in the same soft skin. It comes in a range of timeless colours: in black, beige, brown, navy or burgundy, and also comes adorned with a grosgrain ribbon or in a jacquard motif knit, while certain models are embellished with medallions. Suffice to say, there’s a variety of these next-gen 2.55 bags for you to choose from.
Chanel’s line of soft leather bags will be available in boutiques from June 2016.
