In the past, we would get excited whenever Chanel unleashes a bag that resembles the Classic Flap Bag, but cheaper. But today, the bags are getting more expensive and such seasonal dream bag isn’t always available. The Chanel Vintage Puffy Bag is quite pricey, but yet comparing to the iconic handbags, it’s only slightly cheaper. However, it’s a new style and you might want to carry an limited edition instead of what’s already mainstream.
The name Puffy means it’s soft and that’s also why the bag is crafted from lambskin. Yes, lambskin is a bit soft and fragile, but it’s all part of the idea.
I like the Vintage Puffy Bag because it looks a bit like an old-style Chanel Bag thanks to the large smooth detailed lines around the flap and the vintage CC logo. The bag also comes with woven chain strap, which includes a Chanel charm. I also like the back pocket, but I am not sure about the colors.
It seems like the bag can create cracks because it’s lambskin. Also, the white color might not be the best choice due to maintenance and it can get easily dirty. Perhaps the black?
