Chanel Seasonal Flap Bag From Spring Summer 2020 Collection Review

Chanel Seasonal Flap Bag From Spring Summer Collection Review

Every season there is a Flap Bag that looks close to the Classic Flap Bag. In some seasons, the bag looks much alike than other seasons. For the Spring Summer Collection, I belief it looks at least 80% like the Classic Flap Bag, what do you think?

The good news is that in most cases, the seasonal Classic-Like Flap Bag is much cheaper than the iconic Classic Flap Bag. So how much cheaper is this bag?

And other thing, how about the sizes? How does that compare?

And the style? What looks like the iconic Classic Bag and what doesn’t?

Let’s cover all these little details and then decide whether you want to grab one home or not.

1. The Design

Let’s take a look at the design:

Similarities:

  • Both features the smooth CC logo
  • Both features the woven chain leather strap
  • Both comes with a backpocket

Differences:

  • The Seasonal Bag comes with leather patch for shoulder carry
  • The Seasonal Bag is made from grained calfskin while Classic Flap Bag is made from lambskin and caviar
  • The Seasonal Bag is finished with TWO large eyelets on top while the Classic Bag has built-in eyelets on top
  • The shape of the Seasonal Bag is a bit chubby, which can store more essentials

So both are very pretty and while there are some differences, the seasonal bag is a distinctive bag. While everyone has the iconic, this seasonal bag will make you stand-out, which is another reason to buy.

The grained calfskin is as durable as caviar, but less stiff and has the smoothness of the lambskin (not as smooth of course).

2. The Sizes

Let’s take a look at the sizes:

TypeSizes
Chanel Medium Seasonal Bag6.7’ x 10.6’ x 4.3’ inches
Chanel Medium/Large Classic Flap Bag6.3’ × 9.1’ × 3.5’ inches

Is it better?

The medium size of the Seasonal Bag is slightly bigger in every way than the Classic Bag. Perhaps this is a good reason to buy if you have already a Medium Large Classic Flap Bag, but always wanted to buy the Jumbo Classic Bag but don’t want to purchase two of the same.

More over, the Seasonal Bag has 20% more interior space than the Classic Flap Bag thanks to the chubby shape.

3. The Prices

It always feels good to get a good deal. While the new seasonal bag is bigger than the Classic Bag, it’s also less expensive.

The price of the seasonal bag is $4200 USD versus $5800 for the iconic Classic Flap Bag, which is $1600 USD cheaper. That’s a whopping 27% less expensive than the Classic Bag.
