The most coveted bracelet and most popular piece of ‘jewellery’ by Hermès, every fashionista dream to have this amazingly chic and bold jewel. By history, it was originally designed for a client’s bulldog, thus the name “Collier de Chien” in English ‘dog collar’ (introduced in the 1940s).

Our Love to J’Aton Couture

jAton-couture1
We have been holding on to this post for a while and we have decided to share the beautiful collection of J’aton couture wedding dresses after receiving so many requests from our clients. We are in LOVE with the Australian design duo lines - Jacob Luppino and Anthony Pittorino, they have started J’Aton Couture in 1995. The collection is based on accentuating a woman’s curves with gorgeous embellishments, intricate detail and frothy tulle.

Some may find the Paris-Dallas collection is a bit too rodeo-y, but we believe, Chanel always produces timeless and classic style that you will at least appreciate for its conservative spirit. Thank you to our lovely client for trusting us to get this beautiful Chanel lambskin navy blue camera bag from the Paris-Dallas collection.

Many raised us a question, is it worth buying Chanel bag as an investment? Designer handbags (also the same goes to watches or jewellery), are particularly subjective when compared to other investment opportunities. Handbags are a little more important than other "investment pieces" (like shoes) and thus require even more careful consideration. Unless you can afford to buy a new ‘it bag’ every season, you want one that will withstand the passing of trends and continue to look amazing for years to come.

We also think it's important that you really (yes, really) love it and aren't just buying it for status or because it's on the most coveted list bags of the year. Remember, just because it's marked down doesn't necessarily mean it's the bag for you. We know from a classic example, buying a Chanel caviar flap bag with gold hardware will cost you more than $4000 (treating it like your little princess, nurture with love and care). Then the next three years later your little princess valued at a retail price of $6500. That’s a difference of $2,500.

Prices have been rising for 100% in 3 years, that’s 30% profit each year. And Chanel is going to raise again for 20% next year. If this continues, how much would your Chanel bag be worth.

P/S: "Don't buy a bag that's on sale unless it's the one you really want. If you're going to spend a lot of money regardless, pay full price for something you'll love for a long time. I know from experience."
