Chanel CC Crave Flap Bag: Presenting Our New Love

Line-2

Before I start writing about our next exciting Chanel story, I want to genuine tell you this:
‘Thank you for supporting our site’.

Line-2

Now hear the story about the Chanel CC Crave bag.

Dorothy and I had a conversation not long ago about Chanel accessories. She went to Milan hunting for a Chanel classic medium flap bag. But luck was not on her side, they had no stock. And we all know how that feels right? But a little disappointment didn’t stop her, she was determined to get her first Chanel bag in Europe! It’s time for plan B.

She decided to try in Paris (J’aime Paris!!), hoping that they had plenty of stock. Maybe it’s faith, she got rejected AGAIN. But if you try hard enough, miracles does happen once in a while. The shopper assistant went back to the stock room and took another bag out.

‘What’s that?’

The shopper assistant replied: ‘This bag just arrived two weeks ago, it’s our new Chanel CC Crave bag, you like?’

Dorothy was so happy with first Chanel bag that she turned her shopping spree on. She also bought a Chanel shades, lipstick and Chance perfume. Way to go girl!

You might also know that Chanel has released their pre-fall 2013 collection. So the Chanel easy flap chapter is closed. But if you have missed the Chanel easy flap bag, don’t worry. It has been replaced with the Chanel CC Crave bag. Let me show you…

Do You Love The Chanel CC Crave Bag?

Line-2


This bag is from the pre-fall 2013 collection. The price is cheaper than the classic flap bags, but the style is almost similar. I adore the CC Crave as much as I adore the easy flap. Want to see something exciting?

Zoom in the metal parts of the bag to see: ‘Chanel’ w/ ‘Rue Cambon’ engraved. Oh my god, you gotta love that.

And how about the price? Dorothy bought her bag for €1,950 EUR in Paris.

Prices in UK; medium/large size: £1,700 and the jumbo size £1,900.

So what do you think about the new Chanel CC Crave flap bag? A hunt or not?

    hello!

    is cc crave still available? in Milan?

    my friend is gg to Milan next week and am wanting to ask her to help me a Chanel bag. budget around cc crave and easy flap’s.

    love the cc crave but it seems like it is no longer selling? was thinking of easy flap, but when i try it on, i am not sure is it because the caviar is not as sturdy as the classic caviar or not and also of the zip that makes me think again about this bag.

    i tried on the red one and white one. always wanted a white chanel, but again the material and the zip makes me think whether i should get the white one or not.

    im in such a dilemma!!

    • Alex November 1, 2014 Reply

      Hi Charlene, the bag is different than the classic flap bag, also the material of course. That’s why the price is also cheaper. I do not think the CC Crave is available anymore, it is a seasonal piece.

      p.s. keep us updated

    Does chanel crave hold its shape?

      Hi, it should hold shape, but don’t try to carry too many stuff.

    hello all!

    is this bag still seen selling in Italy’s chanel boutique?

    my friend is going to italy (milan, venice, rome, florence) early august. and she will be helping me to get a chanel bag when shes there. i have already shortlisted 2, easy caviar flap bag and this, cc crave bag. they are the only ones that are around my budget.

    couldnt get much info of easy caviar flap bag, whether is it still selling not and the price of it. so i thought it may be good to have a back up plan.

    this bag looks good too! anyone knows the measurement for the medium size? i have the medium classic flap bag, so i wonder if this medium and the classic medium are the same size?

    also, does anyone knows of the color that are selling now??

    and most importantly, how much is it retailing now in italy??

    thank you in advance!!

    • Alex June 24, 2014 Reply

      For the Spring, it was still selling, now I am not sure. But please check my other comment!

        Hi alex!

        do you have the code/serial number for this? and any idea what colors are they available in?

        thanks!

        • Alex July 10, 2014 Reply

          Hi Charlene, I promised to get back to you, first the style code: A67814 in medium and A67815 in jumbo. This bag shouldn’t be available anymore, they are from the last season. The colors that were available: beige, burgundy, and black

      Hi Charlene, did you manage to get easy flap ?

      My friend is going Paris this October and I thought of getting this too.

    hi! any measurements for this bag?

    im getting a classic medium flap bag. but if there is no stock for it in germany/paris, im thinking of an alternative, which is this, cc crave and the easy flap.

    may i know the measurements for this bag and easy flap bag? am not too sure whether to get a jumbo or medium for the crave yet though.

    • Alex December 3, 2013 Reply

      I would recommend for the easy flap, because its included in the Cruise 2014 collection, I am not sure whether they have the crave bag in stock:

      Chanel CC Crave jumbo size: 13″ L x 8″ H x 5″ D
      Chanel Easy flap medium/large size: 10″ L x 2″ W x 6″ H

    What will the price in Canadian in size medium?
    Thanks!

    • Alex October 17, 2013 Reply

      I think for the medium is around 2,783 CAD, please keep us informed.

    Bought my first (non Vintage) Chanel from London 2 weeks back and it’s a CRAVE BAG!!

    I got it from Selfriges on Bond Street since they are sold out in Harrods and Heathrow airport! I rushed down to get it on a Friday after numerous phonecalls to various Chanel all say that they are sold out in Black.

    I saw it while shopping at Selfriges onn Wed where I saw at least 5 Crave CC on the window display and they were all gone 2 days later.

    Funny thing was – no one mentioned that they come in BLUE as well. Yes, it’s DARK BLUE to the point of looking like Charcoal.

    Has anyone seen it in Blue too?

    By the way, I paid 1720 Pounds for CC Crave Medium in Black. It’s Made in Italy

    Love it 🙂

    • Alex August 2, 2013 Reply

      Yes, they have in dark blue, someone has it on bmb, I thought we have a pic in the forum. Congratulation!!! CC Crave is a really must have.

  13. S July 16, 2013 Reply

    OOOH. Thanks to this post I purchased my first Chanel bag. To tell you the truth, I’m not a HUGE fan of the classic flap and the re-issue in person was not as exciting as I would have liked. The Crave was perfect match for me though: the price, the size and the texture of the leather! The only thing I would mention is that the interior of this isn’t leather (boo).

  14. S July 16, 2013 Reply

    Yes! Saw this post over the weekend and went out to grab the bag today! I only wished the interior was leather though. I went to Bloomies in Nyc and they had brown, maroon and black. The medium size they only had in brown. They had green but not there I guess.

    • Alex July 16, 2013 Reply

      Hi S, so did you buy it?

    Any idea if it will be still available in Paris by August ?

    • Alex July 16, 2013 Reply

      Funny enough, spring summer bags are still available, while the pre-fall has already released. They are still available, but limited. You might also want to try the Chanel citizen bag (from the pre-fall collection), it looks very similar. Pls keep us informed about your purchase.

  16. Laura July 13, 2013 Reply

    Dorothy – do you find that the crave loses shape, especially when worn crossbody? I have the jumbo and love it, but am concerned that the top kind of bends when worn crossbody.

    • Dorothy July 15, 2013 Reply

      Hi Laura. I tried wearing it cross-body & it wasn’t bending. How did you wear it? Coz i think the right way of wearing it in one strap is like the photo of maroon CC crave from the new post of Sassy, the fall collection.

    Thanks for the info…please keep us posted if there is a new Chanel winter collection similar to the Chanel flap bag…thanks 🙂 love it!!

    • Alex July 12, 2013 Reply

      There’s actually one bag, we are trying to get more information. But apparently not all Chanel stock them (yet). It’s called the Chanel citizen bag, if anyone in this community can show us some information or images, that would be great.

      Thank you! I really have no idea how long this will be available, but this is from the 2013 pre-fall collection, & usually the new collections quickly discontinue. 🙁

      Thanx! Cross body if single strap & shoulder bag until your waist if double strap. 🙂

        • Dorothy July 11, 2013 Reply

          I hope you get it in Europe! I already used this, twice, & wow, i feel soooooo good! =)

          This is just in medium size & yes, the leather part was hidden (sorry, wasn’t able to show it in the photo).

      The SA only showed me 2 colors, the olive green & black…& i guess it comes only with this silvery-blacky hardware.

    Aaahh~ So this is the one I saw at Chanel NYC… so that’s the name “crave flap bag”, it goes from $2900 up there… I’d like to buy it if they have it in candy colours 🙂

        Hi Alex,

        How can I check the forum? Sorry I’m still very new to this.

        Hmm..I saw the olive green, don’t really like it; neither does the brown.
        I guess I like the ones that more cheerful to look at, hehehe 😉

    Thank you for this wonderful article, Sassy! Love it!!! I’m just so excited to use it, i don’t know when but every now & then, i keep on looking at it & feeling it….I guess, this is what you call, “heavenly for girls”! hahaha :-)))
    And by the way, I purchased my Chanel shades & perfume at Galeries Lafayette Lyon, France. Love it there as is it isn’t so crowded unlike in Galeries Lafayette Paris & I even had a personal shopper…so cool!!! Plus, if you’re a tourist shopper & will purchase items with “no red points” at Galeries Lafayette, you’ll get a 10% discount plus another 11-12% for the detax! Good deal, right!
    (But I bought my Chanel lipstick at Sephora Champs Elysees Paris coz that’s where i found the color shade that I want.)
    Again, thanx Sassy & more power to your site as you really help all the girls who’s so in love with bags…. like me! GOD bless.
