Paying tribute to the skilled artisans of the Chanel atelier, the Bobbin bag is a playful nod to the world of haute couture. “Haute Couture is the extreme luxury and a maximum symbol of artisan’s refinement. This is the beauty and the magic of it,” said Karl Lagerfeld, Creative Director of Chanel since 1983. The house’s recent Haute Couture show saw the petites mains take to the catwalk, giving us a peek into how they skilfully bring to life Lagerfeld’s ideas and sketches, season after season. With the iconic leather chain strap and a dangling interlocking CC pendant, the barrel-shaped bag with shiny gold thread makes a bold statement, celebrating the codes of the house, and the importance of heritage and craftsmanship with a huge dose of Gallic wit.
The Bobbin bag is available at Chanel, #B1-135 and #01-59 The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands (Tel: 6634 7350) and #01-25/26/27 Ngee Ann City S.C. (Tel: 6645 1900)
