Categories:Other Brands


As requested by one of our members, an introduction of the Chanel Coco Pleats Collection. And as far as we know, this bag is not available for the Spring Summer 2014 Collection (but you know how Chanel works, sometimes they have one left in the back, you never know until you ask…)

This post is following our previous review of the newest Chanel Coco Pleats Clutch bag, released in the Spring Summer 2014 Collection.

First the history, the Chanel Coco Pleats Collection consist of three different bags; the flap bag, the tote and a hobo (now also a clutch of course). It should be released two years ago, to be exact in Fall Winter 2012 Collection.



The Chanel Coco Pleats Flap Bag has a purposely-made round shape to carry your can’t-live-without essentials, it can store far more items than the medium Classic Flap Bag. Crafted from strong and durable calf leather, it’s refined with texture silver hardware.

The two eyelets connecting to the short chain strap are carefully printed with the signature 31 Rue Cambon, Chanel. It comes with an additional shoulder strap to carry it cross body.



The Chanel Coco Pleats Tote has a strong appeal than your GST. It’s also made from diamond quilted calf leather with diagonal pleats. The oversized chain strap reminds me of the masculine Boy Bags and it comes with a delightful CC logo charm, attached to the left eyelets.



And as final, the Chanel Coco Pleats Hobo Bag, again, it’s made from calf leather and was released distressed two years ago. Refined with silver hardware, with an additional small diagonal exterior zip pocket that has a dangling CC zipper pull. Naturally, it comes with an adjustable shoulder strap of 45’ length.

Chanel Coco Sailor Bag: Gabrielle's Inspiration

Categories:Other Brands

Before you turn your back and yell: ‘Chanel sailor prints’ are not my type of haute couture, then give me one minute to change your opinion by explaining how stripes are tradition for the French people and how Coco Chanel got inspired.

Striped sweaters were originally navy sailor uniforms, it’s original purpose was to separate the waves from the crew. If one of the members accidentally fell of the ship, the other crew members could easily recognize and pick him up. Back in the days, surprisingly, all French navy hailed were from Brittany, the sweaters displayed exactly 21 stripes, each referring to Napoleon’s victory. They were named Breton shirts.

The sweaters were produced in cotton and wool, specially made for sailors, but somehow the workers caught on and started to wear them. Eventually it became famous beyond the military.

When Coco Chanel went to the coast, she got so inspired by the sailor outfit that she used it for her 1917 collection. Her way of designing the Breton tops were a bit different, it was worn as flared trousers, making it more feminine and applicable for ladies. By 1930, Breton stripes were lifted to a higher status, it became famous among upper class woman and the style was lifted to the haute couture status.

Nowadays we can’t live without strips, they are everywhere, in t-shirts, bags and blazers. They have become an essential. The Chanel Coco Sailor flap bag is a special edition dedicated to the history of France and Gabrielle .Chanel It’s embellished with a pearly chain that you will certainly love, and it’s removable for anyone who doesn’t like it.
