Chanel Grand Shopping Tote: The Big Shopping Tote Sister
The Chanel grand shopping tote, also called the GST is equally famous as the Chanel classic flap bag. It’s fame starts in the United States, going all the way to Europe, Africa to China and Japan. This bag represent the brand Chanel and is considered one of the hottest bag in fashion, the ‘it’ of the ‘it’ bags. But that doesn’t surprise me, everything what you need in a tote, the GST has it and so much more. The durable caviar leather, large enough to pack your modern essentials and even your summer jacket, stylish enough to make your girlfriends jealous and durable enough to love it forever.
There are several choices you need to make when it comes to the GST: the color, the hardware and the leather. The GST is available in gold hardware as well as silver hardware. And there are several color to choose; of course the classic black, quilted red, beige, chalk white, blue, gold, yellow, red and even gray. But it doesn’t mean that you can just enter the Chanel boutique and go home with whatever style you want. These bags are limited and your favorite choice might not be available in stock.
Then you have the leather, it’s available in metallic, patent, lambskin and caviar. The most famous choice is the GST in black and lambskin/caviar. But that’s no surprise, it’s the same choice you would make picking your first Chanel classic flap bag.
Since 2010, Chanel has reissued the GST (just a couple of modification to make it better). There’s a new strap with key hook inside, you can use it to attach anything you like, keys, wallet or even your iPad. The interior has changed too, Chanel has used thicker lining comparable to the Ottoman lining. Some people claim that the older lining was much better, more durable and less easy to abuse. The new lining, Satin seems to be much more difficult to maintain.
If you have a hard time of gather money to buy your first Chanel classic flap bag, your dream bag, then consider the GST. It’s as useful as the classic flap and much bigger. The price is much lower too, which means you get a great value for money. But you really want to stick with the classic flap or the reissue 2.55, Chanel PST, Chanel GST and even to the Cerf tote to make sure you have a Chanel classic in your wardrobe.
