Chanel Crocodile Handbags


This is an interesting topic.

The other day I was thinking; for as long as I’ve been working on BRAGMYBAG, most of the comments and emails we get, are from those that crave (read-to-buy) a Chanel bag made from calfskin or lambskin.

But I haven’t received many emails about Chanel bags in exotic leathers like Alligator or Python.

Here are two beautifully crafted Chanel handbags, one is the Chanel Mini Flap Bag in squared shape and crafted from Alligator. It’s painted in pink to enhance its cuteness and it comes with a CC logo on the front as well as interwoven chain links. There is a back pocket made on the other side.

An unrestrained luxury, you get a totally different feel than in lambskin or caviar. It’s rare, extravagant and surely more expensive. Wouldn’t love to take it home?

Then the famous Chanel Boy Bag in Alligator Leather. Instead of quilted, the center wraps itself with alligator patterns. The Boy CC logo on the front and large chains with leather strap.

To be honest, I would be walking away with the pink mini bag first. Both are gorgeous, but answer this question:

If you could choose between the lambskin, caviar or in the crocodile leather, which one would you pick and why?

    If money wasn’t an option, I would definitely pick an exotic skin. They are timeless.

    I was in the Chanel store in Dubai and saw an alligator skin bag. When I asked the SA how much it was, she said it was approx 56000 pounds (after conversion AED to GBP) . I was shocked and said to her “who would buy that?” With a straight face she said to me that she had sold one that morning.

    It was gorgeous and I didn’t get to touch it because it was under lock and key and I didn’t bother asking to look at it closely but approx 56000 pounds for a bag!!!! Yikes!!!!

    I saw a croc skin one in the Prada store for approx 9000 pounds. That would be a nice alternative and the SA showed me swatches of leather you could have it made in a variety of colours.
