8 Reasons Why We Simply Love the Chanel Classic Flap

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

(130)

Let’s switch gears for a second. PurseBop’s been thoroughly raving about her Hermes fixations. We’ve discussed 8 reasons why #PurseBopsGoneKellyCrazy and 8 reasons why the Birkin is the Ultimate Holy Grail bag. However, PurseBop also has quite a bit of Chanel appreciation to spread too. Although a handbag aficionado never truly needs a reason to love a bag, let’s discuss a few reasons why we’ll forever be enamored with the Chanel classic flap.

1. There are endless options.

When you think “Chanel classic flap”, you probably envision a black quilted bag with gold hardware. However, the Chanel classic flap family is quite extensive and diverse. The flap comes in 7 different sizes with 3 of them specifically designated as “mini”. Each season, Chanel produces the classic flap in new materials and colors, which totally expands the possibilities and aesthetic of this seemingly traditional bag.

2. It'll get you through every situation.

Given the many different styles of the classic flap, you can carry it in both formal and casual affairs. The long jewelry chain adds a dose of flair, but also makes it easier to carry the bag crossbody or on the shoulder. The double “CC” is a statement of its own, but leaves you feeling assured all your belongings are secure.

3. Classic flaps hold their value on the resale market.

We recently debated the advantages and disadvantages of viewing your bag as an “investment”. Statistically speaking, the Chanel classic flap tends to retain its value on the resale market since prices continue to rise each year. If you ever want to move on from your CC treasure, you might stand to gain a pretty penny – or at least get back what you paid.

4. It's justifiable on many levels.

We all love the look the classic flap, but we can’t deny that the steep price tag leaves us hurting a little bit. Eventually, the pros start to out weigh the (mostly cost prohibitive) cons. You might be spending a lot of money already trying to find happiness with other trendy bags that eventually lose their appeal. The classic flap has already proven its versatility and longevity in the handbag world. After snagging the perfect classic flap bag, you’ll have no regrets. It’s truly a bag that keeps on giving!

5. It will make your collection feel more complete.

The Chanel classic flap is a dream bag, a staple, and a go-to. While we may search for other bags, it’s easy to come back to the classic flap because it is such a hero in a collection as it serves so many purposes while still looking classically chic.

6. It's a cult favorite.

If you haven’t gotten on the Chanel bandwagon yet, the infatuation will eventually hit you. Everyone and their grandmother has either at least considered or owned a Chanel bag. Again, how can you not – it’s Chanel and arguably THE bag of all bags. Celebrities can’t get enough CC either.

7. The impeccable quality and luxe feel is undeniable.

The classic flap bag embodies luxury in every aspect from quality of materials to detail in design. An insane amount of craftsmanship goes into the creation of just one Chanel bag. PurseBop documents the whole process in The History of the Chanel Classic Flap bag feature.

8. It is timeless perfection.

Whether you choose your classic flap in traditional black or the most eccentric, embellished pattern, it is a living testament to Chanel’s heritage and vision. The silhouette is timeless, but each new rendition and design shows the classic flap’s ability to evolve with the modern woman.

SHOPPING WITH JAMES: CHANEL TRI-COLOR FLAP BAGS

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

Chanel-Mini-Classic-Flap-Bag-Tri-Color-2

There are as many variations of Chanel Bags available as we can imagine, and that also includes the Chanel Classic Flap Bag.

Life can be more interesting, if you allow to. Instead of sticking to the ‘black colors’, which are usually refer to as timeless and classic, perhaps…perhaps… we should move out of our comfort zone and be bold, and try something else.

Like the latest Chanel Extra Mini Classic Flap Bag, we know that the single colors are the favorite picks. Who doesn’t love the Extra Mini Classic Flap Bag in pink?

Boy-Chanel-Ombre-Clutch-Bag

Listen to the advice of our friend James, she just went back from the Chanel boutique and the SA offered her the Boy Chanel Clutch Bag in Ombre Patent Leather. This boy bag is really nice, the gorgeous color from beige to red, designed with the classic boy clasp in shiny golden hardware. There is basically nothing wrong with this bag, but somehow our intuition tell us ‘no’.

You see, this bag doesn’t seem to be practical, especially when want a bag to carry everyday. And such bags need to fit to the right outfit, it should be perfect for the special occasions.

So James turned the SA’s offer down, also because she spotted something even more gorgeous – the Mini Classic Flap Bag in tri-color. You see, to avoid buyer’s remorse later on, you need listen to your heart.

Chanel-Mini-Classic-Flap-Bag-Tri-Color

James: ‘The Tri-color Mini Classic Flap Bag, it was offered in all classic collection, I think 3 or 4 different combo’s. One I got is the blue, green and turquoise, if I remember, there are also red, blue, brown-red, pink, drank pink and one more combo’.

Tri-colors handbags need to be handpicked carefully, choosing the wrong color and you will regret later on. I really love the choice of James, the colors are so yummie. You know, this bag doesn’t feel too flashy, like you’re showing off, its gentle and absolutely gorgeous.

So we went on to ask for the prices, here what we got:

The Boy Chanel Clutch Bag is priced at $3800 CAD, the Mini Classic Flap Bag is priced at $3100 CAD. Obvious they are also in styles like medium and jumbo, they are the same price as the normal classics.

FENDI BAGUETTE BLUE CRYSTALS FLAP BAG

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

Fendi-Baguette-Flap-with-Blue-Crystals

There are few of Fendi bags that are iconic and the Baguette Bag is one of them. Though Fendi has extended the Baguette Bag Collection, the original version is still our favorite.

READ: Fendi Baguette Bags

But anyways, the Fendi Baguette Bag comes in many forms and decoration. We like it simple, yet a bit different than the normal version to create some differentiation to our style. And we can’t name any than the Fendi Baguette Bag adorned with Blue Crystals.

You see, if you strip this Baguette Bag naked (dropping the crystals), it will turn into a minimal shoulder bag, the same like the original version. The Crystals are like jewels you put on this bag, to make it not only shiny but enhancing your fashion style.

The glittering blue crystals are inspired by the same croc tail on the Fendi Mini By The Way Bag. It was the highlight on the Spring Summer 2015 Show.

The Fendi Baguette Bag with Blue Crystals features an adjustable shoulder strap and magnetic fastening. The interior is designed with a zipped pocket and hand-held mirror, in case you need it. It’s also crafted from calf leather.

Measuring 6’ x 10.5’ x 1.5’ (H x W x D), priced at $2850 USD via MyTheresa.
