So it’s finally here – the Chanel Gabrielle WOC is launched for the Fall Winter 2017 Collection.

The Gabrielle Collection was just launched a few months ago, but already it’s paving its way to the iconic status. And with this kind of speed, you can be certain that it will reach that level in very short amount of time. The Gabrielle Bag will sit next to the Classic Flap Bag and the Boy Bag. And in the future, when you ask the SA in Heathrow about the stock of the Gabrielle Bag, they will tell you that they don’t have. Because they don’t sell iconic handbags at Heathrow airport.

The Design


Chanel Gabrielle Clutch With Chain, This Bag Is Bigger Than The WOC. Details via here.

The Classic Quilted WOC, The Boy WOC, The Reissue 2.55 WOC and now the Gabrielle WOC. The design of the Gabrielle Bag is kind-of between the Classic Flap Bag and the Boy Bag. Here’s why: one part of the design is soft and feminine, just like the Classic Bag. The other part of the design is boyish and strong, which represents Coco Chanel’s ideas. Put them together and you get an irresistible handbag.

The Gabrielle WOC is crafted in diamond quilting on the top part of the flap, it’s refined with smooth leather on the bottom part. It also comes with woven chain leather strap for shoulder carry just like the ones on the Classic Quilted and the Reissue WOC. The CC logo has been crafted on the center front.


Chanel Crumpled Calfskin Leather

This is the first-time that the Gabrielle WOC has been released. In the future you will see more colors, leather variations and definitely more sophisticated prints. For this season, Chanel introduces this WOC in Crumpled Calfskin, which is a leather type that we’ve spotted on the Reissue 2.55 So Black Flap Bag. This leather also looks like its been worn, but it’s less cracked than the aged calfskin.

The Interior

The interior of the Gabrielle WOC is the same like other WOCs. Inside you will find 6 credit card slots, a zip pocket and a main compartment to store your other essentials.

The Sizes And Prices

Style code A84389, measuring 4.8’ x 7.6’ x 1.4’ inches, priced at $2100 USD, €2090 euro, £1890 GBP, $3400 SGD, $17400 HKD, 10500 MYR, ¥268920 JPY via Chanel boutiques.

Gucci Queen Margaret Quilted Leather Backpack

Categories:Other Brands


‘Old meets new’ seems to be the buzzwords of choice over at Gucci now, with more and more new bags that are infused with the old. Take the Queen Margaret for example, which to me is the perfect combination of both (and also my personal favourite as far as the Pre-Fall 2017 collection is concerned).

With the giant bee that’s embellished with crystals and pearls inspired by an archive find from the 70s, along with the addition of Gucci’s most iconic bamboo handles (I still get shivers down my spine whenever I recall my trip to Florence where the craftsman showed me exactly how it was curved and varnished), this variation in the form of the backpack is the best of both worlds as far as form and function are concerned.

Besides using it as a backpack, you can also tote it via its top handle, which satisfies the functional bit. Measuring some 25 cm by 23 cm, it isn’t exactly a tiny bag, so fitting in most of your daily essentials won’t be an issue either. Lined with a suede-like fabric, the bag itself is made up of soft quilted leather, which also means it won’t be overly stiff.

Available in a full black version (shown above) that’s priced at SGD3970and one more in multiple colours (SGD4360), you can check them both out now at Gucci boutiques at ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Paragon.


But if backpacks aren’t your thing, don’t fret. The Queen Margaret also comes in the form of a top handle stunner with a sling (shown above), as well as a smaller sling bag (known as the Broadway) that you can wear across the body.
