Chanel Tweed Quilted Flap Bag
The Chanel Tweed Quilted Flap Bag from the Fall Winter 2017 Collection is not like the Classic handbags. It’s Chanelish, but then with a shiny crown on its head. The question is whether you think it’s practical to wear as an everyday bag? Or whether you would keep it in the wardrobe for the special occasions? Is this a good investment for you?
On the first-look, you might think: ‘it’s the Classic Flap Bag with new decoration’. But it’s not! The lower part of the body is made from leather, but not the same diamond quilting like on the Classic Bags. This Tweed Quilted Flap Bag is flat quilted, which is much smoother and feels more modern. However, it misses the nice touch of the classic diamond quilting.
What’s more? The center features the new CC logo in vintage gold hardware. But this is a sophisticated handbag; just take a look at the woven chain leather strap. While the chain is made in gold hardware, the leather strap is colored in oil-slick, which explains its shiny effect.
This purple (oil-slick) color of the chain leather strap matches perfectly to the decoration of the upper part. The lower and upper parts have been separated with a small-sized woven chain leather strap. The upper part is then designed with tweed, which creates a multicolor look. So this bag is mixed with leather and tweed, and it’s a new seasonal design.
There are two sizes available; the small and medium. The small size is a bit bigger, but comparable to the Small Classic Flap Bag. Here’s a comparison:
The Chanel Small Tweed Quilted Flap Bag is measured 5.5’ x 10.2’ x 2.4’ inches, while the Small Classic Flap Bag is measured 5.5’ x 9.1’ x 2.8’ inches.
The Medium size of the Tweed Quilted Flap Bag is a bit bigger than the Medium Classic Flap Bag. Here’s an comparison.
The Chanel Medium Tweed Quilted Flap Bag is measured 7.1’ x 11.8’ x 3.1’ inches, while the Medium Classic Flap Bag is measured 6.3’ x 10.2’ x 2.8’ inches.
Both handbags are big enough to help you store your daily essentials.
