Shopping with James: Chanel Tri-color Flap Bags


There are as many variations of Chanel Bags available as we can imagine, and that also includes the Chanel Classic Flap Bag.

Life can be more interesting, if you allow to. Instead of sticking to the ‘black colors’, which are usually refer to as timeless and classic, perhaps…perhaps… we should move out of our comfort zone and be bold, and try something else.

Like the latest Chanel Extra Mini Classic Flap Bag, we know that the single colors are the favorite picks. Who doesn’t love the Extra Mini Classic Flap Bag in pink?

Listen to the advice of our friend James, she just went back from the Chanel boutique and the SA offered her the Boy Chanel Clutch Bag in Ombre Patent Leather. This boy bag is really nice, the gorgeous color from beige to red, designed with the classic boy clasp in shiny golden hardware. There is basically nothing wrong with this bag, but somehow our intuition tell us ‘no’.

You see, this bag doesn’t seem to be practical, especially when want a bag to carry everyday. And such bags need to fit to the right outfit, it should be perfect for the special occasions.

So James turned the SA’s offer down, also because she spotted something even more gorgeous – the Mini Classic Flap Bag in tri-color. You see, to avoid buyer’s remorse later on, you need listen to your heart.


James: ‘The Tri-color Mini Classic Flap Bag, it was offered in all classic collection, I think 3 or 4 different combo’s. One I got is the blue, green and turquoise, if I remember, there are also red, blue, brown-red, pink, drank pink and one more combo’.

Tri-colors handbags need to be handpicked carefully, choosing the wrong color and you will regret later on. I really love the choice of James, the colors are so yummie. You know, this bag doesn’t feel too flashy, like you’re showing off, its gentle and absolutely gorgeous.

So we went on to ask for the prices, here what we got:

The Boy Chanel Clutch Bag is priced at $3800 CAD, the Mini Classic Flap Bag is priced at $3100 CAD. Obvious they are also in styles like medium and jumbo, they are the same price as the normal classics.

          Hi Cherlyn,

          The metallic pink extra mini is actually from last year’s collection! I got mine in summer 2014. But do check with all the boutiques in Singapore. It is not rare that Chanel boutiques still have bags from previous collections!

    Always love the tricolor classic, I just haven’t found the right one. The one I liked was the yellow-blue-red combo, 2 years ago, but I missed the train 🙁
