Chanel GST (grand shopping tote), is that you?
No it’s not. It’s the new Chanel Large Classic Tote Bag, first-introduced two seasons ago. But it is easy to confuse with the GST because there are plenty of similarities.
Now let’s take a look at the differences. The GST is made with a subtle CC logo printed on the front. On the Chanel Large Classic Tote, you find the classic mini CC logo embellished on top front.
Differences between the new Chanel Large Classic Tote Bag and Chanel GST
On the GST, there are large eyelets crafted to link the bag with the woven chain strap. The same strap on the Chanel Large Classic Tote is linked with the interior. The quilting is much sharper as well.
The biggest difference is the size. The GST is measured 13’ x 10’ x 5.25’ inches while the Large Classic Tote is measured 11’ x 14.2 x 4.3’ inches.
Oke we lied, the biggest difference is actually the price. The last reported price for the GST was $2900 USD while this bag is priced at $4600 USD. A big jump!
Just to inform you, the Chanel Large Classic Tote Bag was first-introduced in Chevron style. Then in the Fall Winter 2016 Act 1 Collection, this bag is reintroduced in golden hardware. And now for the Act 1, the silver hardware is released.
Well, let us know what you think? Would you rather have the GST or the Chanel Large Classic Tote Bag?
