The Chanel Easy Flap (Basic Flap)

Keep following Bragmybag.com and you get informed about the latest and the juiciest Chanel releases. We couldn’t stop talking about the Chanel boy flap for weeks now. The boy bag is oh-so-hot. Oh yes, we are obsessed and the boy bag deserve it. But our conversation have switched recently, now the Chanel easy flap (or you can call it the basic flap) is one of our hottest discussion. But the easy flap remain a mystery, we couldn’t find much information about it! So Bragmybag decided to make a change…

We sourced the entire web and couldn’t find much information even on other blogs and the Official Chanel website. We decided to do our own research. Keep reading because this can be very interesting. Here’s what we found:
chanel-easy-flap-1
Let’s start with the basic. Please welcome the Chanel classic flap in taupe on your left and salute the Chanel easy caviar flap in black on your right. Notice any difference? Allow us to clarify:

1. Both bags has the double CC turn-style lock. You see?
2. Both leather style are very similar. You can get the easy flap in caviar and lambskin.
3. From the design perspective, there isn’t much difference. Or did I missed something?
4. Both has leather interwoven between the chain links. BUT, the Chanel easy flap has a leather handle on the top. Can you see? Can you see?

Oh, I am getting excited. Let me open another door for you.

chanel-easy-flap-2

chanel-easy-flap-3

On the top, the Chanel jumbo classic flap (double flap) in blue. On the bottom, the Chanel easy flap in black again. Isn’t it obvious? The inner closure. You close the Chanel jumbo classic flap by pressing the button. Click! The easy flap has a zipper.

I was very disappointed that Chanel has discontinued the Chanel east/west flap. Then Chanel introduce a new bag, the Chanel 3, which looked similar to the Chanel jumbo flap, but not quite yet. Now Chanel has introduce the easy flap and it’s oh-so-easy, let me show you why.

The Chanel easy flap cost: 1,530 GBP (spotted in London), around 1,800 EUR. It’s available in lambskin and caviar, golden hardware and silver hardware. You can pick the blue, beige or black. Size is 25 cm in length. The easy flap is an excellent substitute for the Chanel classic flap. The medium classic flap is already priced around 2,670 GBP, can you see the huge gap in price?

Even if we forget about the price, I still love the easy flap. It’s simply gorgeous and a must have for any girl who want to own a Chanel flap. This is your time, it’s waiting for you at the Chanel boutique. This is the ultimate Chanel treat.

One more thing, the Chanel easy flap is from the spring/summer 2013 collection. The style code is: A67742

    Hi,

    I called today Harods for the easy flap bag and they told me it’s sold out. On the other hand I called Chanel boutique and they told me that they may bring it again.

    So how does it work because i am confused!

    Do you now if i can find it anywhere in London?

    Many thanks,
    Maria

    Hi Chanel lovers,
    I was just in Florence and the medium easy flap is €2200 and large is €2300. They have grey/silver in medium size. Blue in large. I saw a dark red in large yesterday but when I went back this morning, I was told that they only has one and sold it already. I for sure want to pick up a Chanel during this trip ( will head to Milan and Paris next).
    The easy flap is definitely on the list but I wanted to see if other stores have boy bag and see what colors they have and decide. Wish me luck!

        I have PST and the classic black medium flap with SHW. I’m looking for a different color Chanel bag. I don’t really know what I want to buy and was hoping to see what they have in the store. The store in Venice didn’t really have the good selections … So disappointed. They don’t have the easy flap either. Hopefully I can find more selections in Milan or Paris (keep my fingers cross)

        May 23, 2013
          • Eva

            I bought my PST like 2 years ago and I actually saw couple of them on display in Venice Chanel store yesterday.
            I do have the medium black caviar flap and have just bought a Chanel pondichery grey bag in Milan today. This is the first time I saw it but I just researched it and found that it was last fall’s collection. But the sales told me it is from the spring/summer collection. Do you know if Chanel repeat last season’s bag when it’s not the classic ones?

            May 24, 2013
          • Eva

            I think the one I bought is the medium and it is €2400 in Milan. I have not started using it but I think it should be comfortable to carry. Not heavy like it looks….
            I was hoping to see some boy bags but so far I have not seen it available in the stores yet. Or WOC… It seems to be sold out everywhere…

            Hi, I am in Paris right now and I just got myself a jumbo classic and a Pondichery , the sales lady told me that they continue selling it because it is very popular . She showed me two sizes , and I chose the bigger one as the price difference is not much . I would highly recommend to go to the Chanel store at Rue Cambon to get the bags , as the box and the paper bag have the address printed on them ,may be it is just me but I somehow feel special 🙂 and they still have available stock of jumbo classic black (lamb skin) , and no more black elsewhere . I would prefer cavier but no stock too so no choice . 🙁

    Can this easy flap jumbo being wore as cross body? My classic medium flap ( bought in March 13) just reach my belly button when I wear it cross body.

    Do you think it is worth to buy it coz I already bought a GST black adn Classic Medium black within last few month, GST in Jan and Medium Flap at end of Mar this year.I have not see the easy flap and I am wondering whether I can use the easy flap jumbo as a everyday bag or for travelling.

    I am thinking in between get this jumbo easy flap or save a bit more to get a Hermes Birkin Bag. However, I have no idea which colour/type of lether I will pick for the birkin bag.

    Any suggestion?

        Hi Sassy,

        I would like to have a Jumbo size chanel easy flap ( not sure about which colour – Black/Beige) for an everyday bag. I got GST cos the Classic Medium Flap was not availble at duty free shop last time. Later on I bought the medium flap at Selferdges. I don’t think you can adjust the strap longer – how? The SA told me the medium flap can not be worn as cross body when I purchased. I have not done enough research on Birkin and don’t know whether I can just walk in and buy straight away from the shop. I don’t like wait for long time just for buying a bag. Do you know which type of lether o Birkin hold the shap well and lighter? It will be my first and only Birkin.

        I’m thinking to sell my GST as I bearly use it- only 5 times since I bought it.

        May 22, 2013
          • Helen

            T3 at Heathrow in Jan, they no longer sell classic flap bag there anymore.

            The reason of selling the GST it is due to I rarelly use it and it has an open top rather than closed. I just got bonus and it is enough to pay for another Chanel Easy flap. I just not really use the GST much. Maybe sell later to make some good margin.

            Will pop to Selferdges to ask SA next week then, but the SA did told me the medium flap can not be wore as cross body type and that is reason I wanna the easy flap jumbo.

            My colleague got a togo black for EUR6500 last year in Germany, my budget will be similar. However, I noticed that the Togo birkin is not that structed well. How about Epsom?

            I love the bags have multi ways to carry, however, I end up with lots of Tote Bags, too many. I do lots of reasearch for the Birkin. Thanks anyway.

    Hi Sassy,

    Do you think the Easy Flap is worh buying. Current I have a GST in black which I bought in Jan and a medium classic flap in black caviar that I bought at end of March this year. I have purchased two chanel which 3 months this year.

    Do you know whether the Easy Flap Jumbo can be wore as cross body as my medium classic flap looks funny when I were cross boday as it just hit my belly button level.

    Is it same caviar lether as classic range? I heard it is soft Caviar from other source. Can Easy Flap hold shape well?

    Hello!

    I really like your site as it is very informative! As I have yet to own any chanel bag yet, so towards the collection I’m still a little confused.

    Can I ask what is the difference in chanel vintage and those classic pieces? Coz some of it, the design seems really similar!

    Another question I have in mind is if there is any chanel boutique in boeblingen area?

    Thanks I’m advance!!!

    Hi Sassy! I’m traveling to Northern Europe (Russia, Finland, Sweden, Denmark & Norway) in a couple of weeks. Would you recommend me to buy my first chanel bag and from which country? Will the price and tax return be the same as in Italy/France? 🙂 Planning to get either an Easy or Classic Medium flap or a GST. Which would you recommend? I have a very limited budget that’s why I’m considering getting the Easy than the Classic medium flap. 🙁 But some say that instead of getting an Easy flap, should just get a GST cause it’s a classic. What do you think? 🙂
