How To Wear Tweed This Summer

Here at Xupes handbags we have the pleasure of immersing ourselves into the ever changing fashion industry. Each year we see coveted collections launched by our favourite brands, runway shows that inspires the items we add to our assemblage. Naturally, there are some that stay in your mind forever.

Chanel SS19 blew us away, the Grand Palais transformed to a beach scene with waves gently washing up against the sand. If anyone can make tweed (traditionally an autumn/winter wardrobe staple) work for the summer it would be Chanel. They exhibited a fantastic display of pastel suits and oversized silhouette’s which descended down the runway. 

This unique take on tweed inspired our own collection, and upon the arrival of our pink tweed and pearls classic flap bag we felt compelled to showcase the selection mirroring Chanel’s approach.

A creative mind really comes no better than Karl Lagerfeld, in this edit we have put our own spin on Chanel by the sea, the pre-owned alternative if you will. This is of course in homage of an icon who will be missed for his innovative works, his transcendent mind, and his undeniably powerful presence at the prestigious fashion house. 

In our first edit we teamed our breathtaking pink quilted tweed 2.55 Reissue 225 double flap bag with playful fuschia high waisted shorts in contrast to the soft baby pink of the bag, finished off with a multi colored tweed raw edge blazer. 

To add a touch of elegance we paired our Tiffany & Co 18k yellow gold mabe pearl clip-on earrings & Chanel Montre Premiere mother of pearl diamond 18k rose gold watch.

Look two still has a feminine approach but with a more sporty appeal, a backpack is perfect for women on the go. The materials and techniques used to make tweed ensure durability and longevity which make this versatile backpack even more desirable, and to top it off it comes in the perfect pop of pastel lilac. 

We opted for the same Tiffany Earrings to tie in with the adorable pearl button details on this dress. In keeping with the sporty energy of this look we tied in our Chanel J12 diamond ceramic watch

For our third outfit we went for an oversized double breasted blazer paired with a layered tulle skirt. Our pink tweed and pearls Chanel flap bag is truly a show stopper, crafted with the utmost care and attention to detail. This is the bag that inspired the entire style edit.

Our final look is this perfect summers day co-ord, a very relaxed fit with a delicate sparkle thread knit throughout. This wide brim straw hat is ideal for a day at the beach but also screams high fashion. Our Chanel ivory lambskin leather and black tweed classic shoulder bag was chosen to complete this timeless look.
