Chanel Metallic Symbols Flap Bag And The Chanel PTT Is Still Alive?
There’s something I need to talk to you about…
Actually there are two big things, one is wrapped around a story. But before all that, I want to thank Lolli – for all the details and pictures.
First things first, let us share with you a bag that you’ve probably never seen before. We did a little research on our own, this bag is called the ‘Chanel Metallic Symbols Flap Bag’ and it’s now in store, for the Spring Summer 2014 Collection. Lolli sent us a message: ‘Hi, is the CC Crave still available in London and the current price? Going there tomorrow for a week’.
The Chanel CC Crave Flap, the bag that has inherited the same elements like the Classic Flap Bag, a timeless piece that is so much cheaper. Which fashionista doesn’t love that!
But anyway, we told Lolli about the availability and the price. (some of our members found the CC Crave in this season!)
A few days later, Lolli updated us her findings, she said: ‘Thanks. I’m now in London but I cannot find it in Harrods or Selfridges. Bought the perfume bottle print medium instead’.
A perfect move, if Chanel doesn’t have your bag in stock (this happens all the time!), then prepare yourself with a back-up plan. Lolli end up with a perfume bottle print flap bag, the original name is actually: ‘Chanel Metallic Symbols Flap Bag’.
Then Lolli continued: ‘It’s not a clutch. It’s similar to CC Crave but with embossed Chanel perfume bottle prints on the leather’.
Oh yes, as an addition, if you want the latest info about the Boy Chanel Quilted Flap Bag: ‘My friend got the Boy Chanel quilted medium with rusty gold metal at £2990’.
Then Lolli told me one thing that literally froze my heart, I was surprised, stunned, amazed, jumping and….
She told me: ‘By the way, the PTT is available at Heathrow Chanel but I didn’t ask for the price’.
A little background information: The PTT is the Chanel Petite Timeless Tote, it was not as popular as the GST and the PST, but still it was one of the most coveted and affordable tote from Chanel. But we haven’t heard about this bag for like two years or so.
So when Lolli informed me that she saw the Chanel Petite Timeless Tote, I was like: ‘Nooooo, that can’t be’ (the same facial expression when your Chanel lambskin get scratched).
I wouldn’t let my opportunity pass by, I need to dive into the head of Lolli. So I send her another email again: ‘Lolli, are you sure you saw the PTT, because as far as we know it’s discontinued’
Then she answered: ‘I am very sure I saw the PTT at the Heathrow T3 Chanel store. There was beige and black. They are distinctive because of the zip and small tote size. There are lots of bags that came in last week in London. I was lucky. I wished I could get the PTT but I was out of luggage space’.
Okay, let’s get back to the details first. The Chanel Metallic Symbols Flap Bag is crafted from calf leather and embossed with ‘Chanel’ symbols like the CC logo, the iconic perfume bottle, Chanel Camellia’s, the number 5 and so on. The symbols will live on forever, which makes this bag a timeless piece.
The Chanel Metallic Symbols Flap Bag matches to anything that is linked to ‘casual’ – jeans, pants, tees, tops, when you go to work, shopping, evenings and so on.
There are two different colors and styles available: in metallic calfskin with silver hardware or in black calfskin with silver hardware.
The style code is: A92243
Size: 25 x 12 x 5 cm
Price: $2,800 USD or £1790 GBP before VAT (euro is almost the same)

Oh yes one more thing, Lolli: ‘There is a smaller one that looks like a clutch. Did not check the price though‘.
