Chanel-Classic-Shopping-Tote

First introduced during the Spring Summer 2016 Collection, the Chanel Classic Shopping Tote is a new addition to the house’s classic line. The design resembles a lot like the Classic Flap Bag, but in a tote bag version. And it also reminds us of the discontinued Grand Shopping Tote.

Chanel Grand Shopping Tote (GST)

Chanel Classic Shopping Tote vs Chanel Grand shopping Tote

The Grand Shopping Tote is also known as the GST and it was discontinued in 2015. This bag was extremely popular due to its practical design and the reasonable price tag. When you need a shoulder bag, you went for the Classic Flap Bag. But when you wanted a tote bag, then it was naturally to buy the Chanel Grand Shopping Tote.

The Chanel GST came in two sizes; the large size was called the Chanel GST XL. This bag was crafted in soft diamond quilting and features a printed-version of the CC logo on the center of the bag. This logo created a sense of vintage while the woven chain strap balanced it with a modern touch.

The interior was large enough to store all your daily essentials and more. With woven chain strap, the bag could be carried on the shoulder, on the crook of the arm or just by hand. It was a very handy handbag. Besides being practical, the design doesn’t scream CHANEL at all, which makes it perfect to use as an everyday bag.

The Design

The design on the Chanel Classic Shopping Tote looks a lot like the iconic Classic Flap Bag. Just take a closer look at the features – the diamond quilting, the interlocking CC logo, the woven chain strap and it even comes with a back pocket. All of these components resemble to the Classic Flap Bag, which are inspired by Coco Chanel’s original 2.55 Bag.

The GST is made with double eyelets, linked to the woven chain strap. But the Chanel Classic Shopping Tote is made with just one eyelet on each side. In our opinion, the new design is more intriguing and heart-melting. And also, the printed CC logo is swapped with the interlocking CC, which changes the whole appearance from vintage to modern.

The Interior

The interior is secured with a quilted leather strap. The inside is crafted with one large compartment, featuring an extra zip pocket and few small open pockets for structuring your items. The size of the interior makes it an ideal shopping bag for the weekend or just for work. It’s an excellent substitute of the discontinued GST design and it can be considered as a collectable item.

Celine Belt Tote Bag

Categories:Other Brands

Introducing the Celine Belt Bag. The Belt Bag was first introduced in Celine's Pre-Fall 2014 Collection. The bag has been included in Celine's most recent collections in new colors and have been also featured in various ad campaigns like the Celine Fall 2014 campaign and the Celine Winter 2014 ad campaign. The bag features a single top handle with front "belt" that knots in the front.  The front flap is typically shown tucked behind the belt and can be hooked closed. There is an interior zipper under the flap to keep your items secure. The base features four metal feet and includes two interior pockets. 

The Belt Bag debuted about a year ago with the brand's Spring 2015 collection, and although it regularly garners positive comments from readers and I've seen it on the arms of a handful of celebrities and bloggers, I just don't think the design gets its due for how attractive it is. It's great, you guys!

It may not be quite as distinctive as the Luggage Tote or Trapeze Bag, which both showed up on the market looking like nothing else available, but it's a solid day bag with the kind of luxuriously minimalistic look that's just begging to be photographed next to a vase of peonies for maximum Instagram likes. It doesn't look over-designed, and the long tails on the front belt give it just a little bit of drama. It also looks good when carried with the optional long shoulder strap, and it's not has heavy as some Céline bags--what's not to like?

The newest size for the Belt Tote Bag will be part of the Celine Cruise 2015 Collection.  The new smaller size will only be 1″ smaller in width, which is great since the price point comes in lower in natural calfskin at about €1,150 versus €1,800. Notice the gussets are less prominent on the mini size.  The change may just be the second generation of the Belt tote bag; however, the bag is being called the “mini size” at retailers.

That kind of market-bending success is never replicable in perpetuity, and although Céline has sold tons of bags and enjoyed immense popularity in the intervening years, it sometimes feels like everyone's hoping for some more handbags magic. Personally, I'm not sure why that can't come from the Céline Belt Bag, which has many of the elements that have made the brand's bags consumer favorites in the past.

Furla Perla Mini Crossbody Tote

Categories:Other Brands

furla_perla_mini_crossbody_tote

This adorable little bag has such a great shape. It’s taken some inspiration from a classic north-south tote and restyled it to irresistibly detailed effects. Tapering towards the top, it’s got the same of appeal as a bucket yet it’s totally different. Any bigger and you might find yourself losing things; this size is ideal.

It’s small, but a small bag is big enough if you don’t have young children and all their gear, or you need your tablet with you, or a change of shoes…I could go on. I mean, you know this isn’t a bag you’re going to live out of, but I’m used to cutting down. I’m all about the bare essentials!

Don’t be deceived: the rings the strap clips to are decorative. I like it when hardware serves both a functional and aesthetic purpose, which should always be so. I’m not a fan of extraneous hardware, but I’m willing to let it slide because this bag, in navy, aubergine, or hot pink, is such a great frugal score.

Celine Tie Tote Bag

Categories:Other Brands

Presenting information on the Celine Tie Tote Bag. This latest tote bag from Celine first appeared during the brand's Winter 2013 Collection. It also appears in the Celine's Spring (Resort) 2014 Collection in fresh new colors. The bag features a flap front which can be tucked in or shown on the exterior. The bag is aptly named by the "knots" or "ties" at the base of the handles. The Celine Tie Tote bag is an updated version of the Celine Phantom bag and coincidentally the Spring collection no longer includes the Phantom in the lineup.

It includes a mini pouch, has an internal zipped pocket and two slip pockets. The flap can be tucked inside the bag, and it has a much larger roomy interior.

The Celine Tie Tote Bag comes in two size: small and mini

It says a lot about a bag when they are invited to come back in every season – the Celine Tie Tote is still fresh, introduced only a year ago, built to last forever and the design is based on what Celine is good at; handbags with flappy wings.

The name ‘Tie’ is thanks to the knotted handle attachment, an unique accessory in the world of fashion, crafted to match your casual chic outfits and carry it as an everyday bag.

But its not only the design, perhaps we should look more into the details, the minimalistic appeal that make us fall in love with Celine bags over and over again, the impeccable leather that’s made to last forever.

For the Fall Winter 2014 Collection, the fashion house introduced some very interesting combination and styles, The Tie Tote in Felt is not only well-priced, but it looks amazing. Obviously, felt is a material that is cheaper than leather, but it’s a different experience.

The Celine Tie tote bag has been made available in a mini size for Fall / Winter 2014, complete with unique contrast lining in suede. The mini size comes in a variety of colors such as Tan, Alizarin, Fluo Yellow and many more.  This mini size is closer to the Celine Micro Luggage Tote bag at 10" L across and 9"H; however, the smaller version will not include the interior pochette. The first edition of the Celine Tie Tote bag was large measuring over 15" in length.  The price at $3,600.00 is likely higher due to the fact that its made of more expensive Palmelato.
