Since the weather has finally taken an upturn (for now), I can finally dig out my cherry-red Chanel from storage. This was the first Chanel which was all mine – no borrowing from my mother after this.I had originally gone into the store after a black version in caviar leather, but it was Christmas, and I was on the last for the last one in the US behind someone on Rodeo Drive. They took the bag, Who wouldn’t? Anyhoo, it ended up working out for me too – this was the store’s only flap bag, and after alot of ahhing and oohing I went for it.
I just adore the colour – red is such a surprising neutral – I love it paired with jeans and a grey or camel sweater. The lambskin has such a pretty sheen which really dresses up an outfit. The silver hardware is also different for me – all my other bags (bar one) have gold, but I think it suits it.
