chanel quilted briefcase


wow, did you know chanel did briefcases? neither did it! the above vintage piece, and several other one-offs, are available from matchesfashion. i love love love the quilted cognac colored leather. sounds silly, but their logo clasp is just too big and annoying. if it is something smaller, nondescript, or even the classic 2.55 clasp, this 38cm briefcase would have been perfect for the boys.

  1. mr. goreski got it from scarlet- a vintage shop in paris, during his fashion week trip back in 2009. it should be cheaper!

  2. Lovely... are you getting it Joe? The clasp does not really look that big when Brad is carrying the briefcase IMO...

  5. Brad wears it well. But I think with the big logo clasp it's too "femme."
    But then again, the men's chanel stuff aren't exactly the most masculine pieces either.

  10. In my opinion a lot is wrong in this picture:
    1. Brown should never be seen with black or blue, I have never understood why that came into fashion in the past few years.
    2. Sunglasses should never be worn indoors, this is very impolite (unless you have problems with your eyes).
    3. Rachel obviously doesn't know her shoe size, toes should never drop over the edge of the shoe (let alone the fact that the heels are far too high to be stylish at all, but that is a my personal tast).

    It is a pitty that stylists and fashion addicts don't stick to the approved basic rules of style which have been developed during the many years behind us.

  11. It’s hard to make people understand that it’s important to take time with your logo so it is memorable, relevant and has longevity.

  12. Anyway, chanel is to famine. The only thing i can stand for man is several tweed jackets from man collection, and one huge messenger bag. I don`t even know from what collection it was, just saw in on the guy next table to mine in Paris. But the bag was really masculin, with lots of metal and cc logo was not so mentioned.

  14. I agree the big chanel hardware on it makes it look a little tacky and overly feminine for most boys to carry but otherwise such an impeccable briefcase....as a briefcase collector i am very tempted in hunting for one....this bag reminds me of the kelly depeche...men's briefcase based on an iconic handbag design! too bad they're both rare finds these days....i am very tempted to hunt down for it now hehehe
