And when you think you’ve seen it all, a brand-new Chanel Wallet On Chain Bag pops out from nowhere. Yes, it’s a new-new WOC because the shape is different, but it has the same classic look.
Last time the house created an innovative mini bag was the downsized WOC. It looked like a phone holder but its not. The design is quilted, with the interlocking CC logo on the front, just like the Classic Quilted WOC.
If you’ve considered purchasing the Classic Quilted WOC, but always thought that the size was too small, now it’s your chance to grab a distinctive version. We do not know whether this bag will be part of the classic collection, so when this season is over, we might never see it again.
The Square Classic Quilted Wallet On Chain Bag is made with diamond quilting, mini interlocking CC logo and woven leather chain strap, but with leather strap for the comfort. It has the same classic look like the Classic Flap Bag and the Classic Quilted WOC.
The major difference is the size; this bag is taller and can store much more essentials. And even tough it’s bigger, it’s still ideal to use as an evening bag. However, you cannot compare this bag to the M/L Medium Classic Flap Bag, it’s just too small.
Just like any Chanel WOC, the inside is structured and designed with multiple pockets to get your items organized. More over, there is a zip pocket, central compartment and credit card slots. The front pocket fits an iPhone 7+.
Chanel Square Classic Quilted WOC vs Original Classic Quilted WOC comparison
Both bags are stunning, timeless and chic. The new Squared Classic Quilted WOC is not that much bigger than the original version. It’s taller, which makes it feel and look different. There are also other elements that make the Squared WOC distinctive. Let’s talk about that.
Now let’s compare this Squared WOC to the original Classic Quilted WOC. The Squared WOC is measured 5.7’ x 6.7’ x 2.4’ inches. The original Classic Quilted WOC is measured 4.8’ x 7.6’ x 1.4’ inches. So here you can see that the Squared WOC is taller and larger in depth. But in terms of width, the original Classic Quilted WOC is bigger.
The shoulder straps
There’s more. The original Classic Quilted WOC features all woven chain leather strap. This design resembles to the Classic Flap Bag. The Squared Classic Quilted WOC is also made with woven chain leather strap, but it features an extra leather to carry with comfort.
The most popular leathers for the original Classic Quilted WOC are caviar and lambskin. Caviar is extremely durable, but it’s also very hard. The lambskin is fragile but super soft. The new Squared Classic Quilted WOC is made from grained calfskin, which is a different leather option. Calfskin is durable, but not as hard as caviar. And the grainy leather feels luxurious.
Chanel Square Classic Quilted WOC vs Mini Square Flap Bag
Upon request, we decided to create a comparison between the Chanel Square Classic Quilted WOC and the Mini Square Flap Bag. Here’s why:
From the look, it appears that they’re the same, but only from different collection. Both handbags are mini sized and squared in shape. If you need to choose between the Square Classic Quilted WOC or the Mini Square Flap Bag?
First, let’s compare the sizes. The Chanel Square Classic Quilted WOC is measured 5.7’ x 6.7’ x 2.4’ inches. The Chanel Mini Square Flap Bag is measured 5.3’ x 6.7’ x 3.1’ inches. Can you see the difference?
The Chanel Square Classic Quilted WOC is even taller than the Mini Square Flap Bag. The length is the same. But the depth of the Mini Square Flap Bag is bigger, which is not surprising at all. The WOC is supposed to be flatter because it resembles a wallet unlike the Mini Flap Bag.
The shoulder straps
Both handbags come with woven chain leather strap, but the Square Classic Quilted WOC is slightly different because it’s also made with an extra leather strap. And also, the WOC chain leather straps are always smaller than the Flap Bag editions.
Yet, this bag is gorgeous because of the timeless look. We hope it will come back every season just like all the classic designs.
