Chanel Classic Flap Bag in Velvet
The biggest question of this season at Bragmybag: ‘Would you prefer to buy the Classic Flap Bag in Leather and burn more cash, or would you rather go for the Classic Flap Bag in Velvet because it got a lower price tag’?
Hmmm, good question huh? But let’s start at the beginning.
First there is something about ‘Velvet’, it’s hot at Chanel. And I don’t even mean the prices; I am just referring to the design. Leather and Velvet has different appearance, even tough they’re both quilted, and they also feel different.
But here is the thing, let’s talk about the maintenance, a fear that we, bag lovers, have – does the material hold up. Here’s an advice from a SA: Chanel will likely not repair Velvet, because it’s not leather. And unlike leather, if you tear it apart, it’s hard to put it back together (or what I mean is, if its damaged, then it will not be only a few scratches). Therefore, our advice is not to use the Velvet as an everyday bag, the more often you use it, the quicker you sent it to the graveyard, especially if you are an innocent bag-abuser.
But then again, Velvet looks so fresh; the colors are beautiful and popping out. Very attractive.
Chanel has released the Chanel Boy Quilted Flap Bag in Velvet in the last season.
But for the girls, that are skipping a lunches to save money for the Chanel Classic Flap Bag, if you can’t keep up with the prices, then perhaps this is an opportunity to own a bag. It’s better to have an authentic Chanel bag then nothing right?
So what do you think?
Pay more for the Chanel Classic Flap Bag in Leather or get the Chanel Classic Flap Bag in Velvet because it’s cheaper.
