There is a lot of new Wallet On Chain Bag in the Fall Winter 2017 Collection – we’re getting spoiled. Now presenting the Diamante Camellia Quilted WOC, it’s an upgraded version of the Chanel Camellia Quilted WOC from the Spring Summer 2017 Collection. Both looks gorgeous, but the newest version has something unique that’s really attractive. How to describe it? The Camellia Flowers are now blossoming.


The design

The Camellia Quilting is a print that has been introduced for some time now. It’s basically the Camellia Flower decorated all over the handbag. But there is more to it; this flower has been the symbol of house since the rise of Coco Chanel’s fame. It represents a piece of Coco’s life. You can read more about history about the flower here.

The design is ladylike, classy and feminine. It’s gorgeous beyond words. As an addition to the Camellia Quilting, Chanel put what they call ‘Diamante’ on every flower’s stigma. The bag is made in metallic calfskin, but the Diamante gives the shine a boost. The front flap also features the mini interlocking CC logo, the same as on the Classic Quilted WOC.

The woven chain strap can be carried on your shoulder or cross body.

The interior

The inside looks the same as other Chanel WOCs. It’s comes with front zipper compartment, a central compartment for all your necessities and credit card slots to structure all your cards.

Style code A82336, measuring 4.8’ x 7.6’ x 1.4’ inches, priced at $2300 USD, €2335 euro, £2040 GBP, $19000 HKD, $3610 AUD, ¥293760 JPY, ¥18600 CNY via Chanel boutiques.

Your opinion? Is Diamante something you like?

Gucci Bright Diamante Collection

Categories:Other Brands

gucci_bright-diamante-collection5Those of you following my exploits lately on Instagram and on Facebook would have seen snapshot after snapshot of Gucci’s new Bright Diamante collection over the past 6 days. Tasked by Gucci to showcase, and quite literally of course, their brightest and the best, I’ve spent many days with said bags, scouting for locations around Singapore and trying to style them to my best of abilities, which you can enjoy here, or here.

And because it’s an occupational hazard of mine to inspect every bag that passes through my hands with the utmost scrutiny, I can safely say that for what it’s retailing at, most everyone will find something they can afford, and love, from the Bright Diamante collection.

Drawing inspiration from the original Diamante that was first launched in the 1930s, the diamond pattern has since become a Gucci signature, used all the way to the 1950s till Creative Director Frida Giannini rediscovered it in the archives and the rest, as they say, is history.

gucci_bright-diamante-collection6Comprising a huge collection of most everything for both men and women, you’ll find bags for both sexes, a huge selection of small leather goods (from purses to wallets and even a couple of clutches) and even shoes, from loafers to hi-top sneakers. But back to the bags proper, and having spent so much time with them, here are some points you’ll want to know if you’re planning to get something from this collection.

Most all the bags are extremely lightweight, and because they are made of heat-embossed calfskin leather, they are also very durable, with the ability to fend off accidental scuffs with ease. Having liquids splashed on the exterior won’t be an issue either; just do a quick wipe down and everything will be as good as new.

And because there’s really no point being big on form if there’s no function, most of the bags from the Bright Diamante collection come with enough pockets both big and small to please even those who are most obsessed with organisation.

gucci_bright-diamante-collection8My favourites from the collection? Obviously the ones I picked to shoot for my little project with Gucci, which includes the Bowling Bag in both sizes (SGD2400 andSGD2650 respectively), the Bucket which retails for SGD1900, the roomier Top Handle(SGD2650) that’s great for those who need the additional space, the sassy long rectangular Clutch that’s great for both day and night (SGD1620, click here for the snapshot) and last but not least, the Duffle Bag (SGD3250) for the boys that’s great as a work/gym bag, or as a weekend duffle that will work great as a carry-on as well.

Gucci Bright Diamante Lux Suitcase

Categories:Other Brands


If you’ve already set your eyes on a brand-new luggage (not the Celine luggage tote), then pardon me for the interruption. We have just been informed that a new suitcase is going released very soon, it’s the Gucci Bright Diamante Lux Suitecase, read on…

In my life, I have motto: ‘if you are going to spend it, then spend it on the best of the best or don’t spend at all…’. The Diamante Lux Suitcase is quite expensive, but if you have a pocket as deep as the Mariana Trench, then what should we say? F*** it..

Besides its bright shiny leather, it also comes in different of summer colors that you and I will certainly love. Lemon Yellow, Ocean Blue and Orange Red are making us screaming: ‘I need them all, I want them all…’

Then the words ‘diamante’ and ‘lux’ come from the diamond patterns that you see on the front, back and sides of this luggage. Refined with light fine gold hardware, it also comes with a buckle and lock closure with key holder and an id-tag made from leather.

For those who cannot live without wheels, the Gucci Diamante Lux Suitcase comes with two of them. A true master piece, measuring 18.5’ x 8.5’ x 14’ (W x H x D), for $6200 USD, pre-order at Gucci e-store.
