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 all,

    I bought a Chanel Classic look alike medium with silver hardware easy flap at Berlin Chanel in Sep 2012. It was a fall collection and only a few colors was available. I bought black cavier leather.

    My wife likes it a lot. Cost me only S$3000.00 after tax refund.

    Really limited stocks in black since 2012. Very uncommon bag design and hard to spot in Singapore.

            Both the CC Crave and the retro clasp is beautiful. The retro is more modern while the CC Crave is more classic. Are you looking for a new Chanel bag? http://www.bragmybag.com/chanel-flap-bag-with-retro-clasp-details/

            I prefere CC Crave. I wanted to buy small or medium boy but most of them were out of stock. They had medium boy in patent leather and small bay in green and blue velvet.

            October 14, 2013
          • Alex

            I think the CC Crave looks better too, particular because it has that classic and crispy look. Which one are you going to buy? The CC Craev either in black or blue is imo the best.

    Hello there, I live near San Francisco, originally from Europe. I just got a medium classic Chanel in light beige caviar. I love it! But one sales lady at the store told me I should have got a Celtic black boy in this engraved design, because it is more versatile! What do you think? Better classic or Boy Bag? It seems though classic bags disappear instantly for reason! And any opinions caviar versus lambskin? I would love to hear from any Chanel experts.

      The boy bags are never easy to get in Europe, it’s hard to say if they have the black one in stock. But you should pick a couple of alternative colors, in case they don’t have the black.

      It’s also better to shop Chanel on monthday, tuesday than friday and the weekends, particular in Paris, imo.

        It’s black. With silver hardware. The SA told me this particular one didn’t come in the gold option. On the sales receipt the code is a67442 so assuming it is the easy flap. It certainly looks like it. Maybe as its the larger size.
        Very pleased with it. X

    • Thats very true, she has the classic but bought it when chanel’s prices were much lower i think she paid around £1200 for her classic…….I wish.
      so maybe she isnt up to date with current prices, do you think chanel will increase their prices anymore?
      Never the less I’m pleased with my new bag.

      Hi Deborah, you are very welcome. they told me that they are going to have pre-fall stuff in next week, so you may see more options and colors. The one on Ave. Monaigne has the beige one but that was 4 days ago. I haven’t seen any black though. By the way, if u plan to buy LV, don’t buy it in Italy, it is cheaper in Frence. But Chanel price are the same in both countries. I should have done the research before I bought one in Italy 🙁

    Hi Sassy! First of all, congrats in your website! All the informations we need is here!
    I`m travelling to Paris and Rome in september and I really want to buy my first chanel, because in my country we don`t have chanel stores. I will be travelling with my husband and its my 30th birthday and our first wedding anniversary! But, unfortunately I have a very limited budget: 2.000 euros and nothing more. I want to stay closer to the classics, that`s why I loved the chanel easy flap so much. It`s cheaper and it`s very similar to the classics. Do you know the prices of the chanel easy flap? What size do you recommend? I have 1.60cm. Is there any difference to buy in Paris or in Rome? Is the same price? I will be able to find in september the chanel easy flap? I don`t have a lot of time in the cities and I am a little worried that I woulnt find in the cities… My itinerary is first rome, than Paris. What should I do?

          I just went to Lafayette Paris, they have a lot of easy flat in stock. They have blue, red, sliver/grey, gold brown. I also saw green one in the boutique on Ave Cambon. I was in Italy last week and they were out of stock on easy flap. Paris stores has way more selections tan in Italy. But Italy Chanel gives 14% tax refund and Paris stand alone boutiques gives 13%. I would not buy Chanel in Lafayette if you can, the tax refund was only 12% and it is harder to do exchange at other boutiques if you change your mind later. Have fun and good luck on Chanel hunting!
