Chanel Velvet Boy Quilted Flap Bag
If you took a few minutes to read our made-with-love Chanel Leather Guide (I assume you already have), then you will know that generally, handbags made from Velvet are the lowest priced. It’s an opportunity to catch a CC designer bag and lock it up in your wardrobe.
For the Fall Winter 2014 Collection (Oeps I mean Pre-Collection), Chanel has released the Chanel Boy Quilted Velvet Flap Bag. Just for your information, the Chanel Boy Quilted Flap Bag in leathers like calfskin is currently priced at $4,200 USD. While the Velvet version is retailing for $3,700 USD. It’s just slightly cheaper, I am not sure whether the extra 500 USD saving is worth it.
However, the design is entirely different and of course the feel. The Boy Quilted Flap Bag in Velvet feels much softer (not the lambskin soft of course) and the boy in calfskin feels much more durable. They say its not easy to clean ‘Velvet’, you can read more about this material at our Chanel Leather Guide.
Besides the material used, the look is exactly the same – you get the iconic Boy CC logo on the front, the big strong shoulder chain strap and its entirely quilted. I think the Velvet version is great to have, if you already own one in leather.
Chanel Medium Boy Velvet Flap Bag is measured 5.7’ x 10’ x 3.5’ inches. Priced at $3,700 USD. Style code is A92489.
