A couple of month’s back I was inches away from buying a red Chanel Jumbo flap bag. It had the most beautiful red imaginable and when I tried it on all heads in the store literally turned. So it was perfect – almost.
The only thing which stopped me was the material, as it was out of this super soft lamb skin leather. Don’t get me wrong, the texture is amazing, but at the same time it is sooo incredibly sensitive. As I already mentioned in a previous post, I handle my favourite things like raw eggs and I would probably have some blood pressure issues if I would have to bear the first scratch within the first few weeks. So as a result, I didn’t dare to risk it and decided to wait for one in Caviar leather in exactly the same colour…The only problem with that is that there is no saying when (and if) Chanel will launch such a version!
But I must admit that I still think of the soft red one – the colour was just so incredible – neither too bright and loud, nor too dark – just the perfect shade of red.
So this illustration is my homage to it! I chose the classic combination with black and white in the form of a flowy tulle skirt with a black turtleneck sweater.
