Because most of our posts cover handbags, smaller accessories get left out from time to time. Because smaller goods spend most of their time obscured from view, they’re often not as artfully adorned as bags that we wear as part of our exterior ensemble, which means that they don’t get as much blog love. Every now and then, though, a collection of wallets and small pieces comes around that deserves closer examination.
Welcome the Chanel Palette Small Leather Goods for Fall 2011. The line includes a collection of wallets, a coin purse, card holders, key holders, makeup bags, an iPhone case, and an iPad clutch. Going along with the iconic 2.55 Chanel aesthetic, all pieces feature aged calfskin with flat lozenge quilting.
When picking out accessories, I like to choose colors I don’t normally use for my day to day bags. I like the way Chanel combines a classic with fun by pairing their elegant design to metallic gold and silver leather. I’ve never been a huge lover of metallic leathers, so having it as an accessory is a great option.
While an iPad is tech savvy and you want to be able to access it easily to play Angry Birds, watch movies and read PurseBlog, wouldn’t it be super chic to slide it in and out of a Chanel case? That is the item I am coveting most. The collection will hit Chanel boutiques late September 2011. Which item is your favorite?
