Did you know that for over a decade now, South Koreans have continually expressed their love for Chanel? Idols and personalities like Jessica Jung, Kim Go-Eun, BLACKPINK’s Jennie, Lee Dong Wook, and G Dragon are just a few who are proudly Chanel-clad in most social media posts and public events. But allow us to take a closer look at Jessica’s love affair with the French fashion house here.
Chic femme x Mini Trendy CC Clutch With Chain
Jessica started off her list with this cute nude-coloured micro-clutch gifted to her by her sister (and fellow multi-hyphenate K-star), Krystal. She said that it was a Christmas and birthday present. Jessica admitted that she “gave [Krystal] a hard time” when she received this, saying that it’s too small to put anything in. But it’s only sisterly banter as she confessed that she loves this piece as “mini bags” are now on-trend.
Chill & laidback x Vintage Satin Box Bag
Jessica shared that her vintage Chanel bags are like her “treasures” because they are “rare and unique”. The Satin Box Bag is made of lightweight satin, making it her preferred bag when travelling. She also mentioned that despite the size, it can carry quite a lot because of its boxy design.
Romantic elegance x Classic Medium Flap Bag
Jessica shared that her Chanel Classic Medium Flap Bag in Black is her “forever favourite, forever best friend” from the entire bag stash. She said she loves this design’s versatility since wearing it as a crossbody makes it look casual, but a quick shift to using it as a purse or a one-sided shoulder bag gives it a formal appeal.
Casual glam x Round As Earth Bag
Another discovery we made from Jessica’s vlog is that she loves distinctly shaped bags. This is why when she saw this one, she felt “love at first sight”. She said that it’s not the most practical given its shape and space, but it’s so beautiful that she loves it anyway. Totally relatable! Don’t we all have a fashion item that makes us feel the same way?
Jessica’s vlog outfit x Gabrielle backpack
Can we end this without trying to cop Jessica’s look on the vlog? But before that, real quick, let’s talk about her Gabrielle backpack. Jessica said it took her a while to decide whether or not she’ll get it. When she made up her mind, it was already sold out in Korea. Good thing that during her visit in Spain with her sister, she saw it displayed at the Chanel store. We totally loved the anecdote!
