Chanel Up In The Air Bags
And yes, that is the name; Chanel Up In The Air and it’s a flap and tote bag. I like the name; it’s catchy like it should be. Is this a new crave? No its not, but you can still find it in the Cruise 2014 Collection.
It was a new addition to the classic flap and tote line, first introduced in pre-spring and summer 2013 collection. A bag that got stuck between chic and casual. You could wear it at work and you take it to your friend’s wedding. So why love the Chanel Up In The Air? First of all, it’s different. It moves you away from the classic quilted flaps to try something that not everyone carries. You will still be adorned by the beautiful chain, CC logo and the classic shape, so no lack of iconic features.
For the Cruise 2014 collection, new colors have been introduced, the images you see are from the pre-spring 2013 collection. But I also have one bad news, the prices have gone up. WTF!
The Chanel Up in the Air bags are made from calfskin and only available in silver hardware. The new colors for the flap bags are Ivory, Red and Black. The style code is: A67652, the prices went from $2,700 USD to $3,000 USD and I am referring to the medium size, which is measured 6.6 x 11.6 x 2.4.
The tote bag is also in Ivory and black, but there is a new lusting color; Navy Blue. The style code is: A67654 and the size is 11x14x6.5. The price went from $3,000 USD to $3,400 USD.
This bag can be worn in all season and you might not have notice it on the pictures, but it has a strong sense of appearance. So what do you think? Practical or not?
