CHANEL CHEVRON MEDAL FLAP BAG

We’ve been eyeing like a hawk on the Chanel Chevron Medal Flap Bag since it was launched in the Pre-Fall 2018 Collection. It’s such an astonishing handbag with fine details that can make anyone obsessive. It’s distinctive because no components have been copied from the classics yet the design looks so timeless. And even tough it’s a seasonal bag; beauty does come with a price. We can say that the price tag is evenly matching to the Classic Flap Bag, or perhaps even higher. But let’s do a comparison to find out.

The Design

Chanel-Chevron-Medal-Flap-Bag-18a

Chanel creates two kinds of diamond quilting; the puffy quilting like in lambskin or the flat quilting like the Chanel Flat Quilted Clutch With Chain.

But what we don’t often see is the flat quilted chevron leather. We know the puffy chevron quilting exists. But the flat chevron quilting?

Oh well, perhaps that’s what makes this Chevron Medal Flap Bag special. It’s designed with flat chevron quilting with beautiful vivid stitches. The bag is made from calfskin and we can feel the durability just by looking at the picture.

The Chevron Medal Flap Bag will definitely hold shape and there are two details that are very eye-catching. First the newest CC closure on the center of the flap. This CC logo is built like a chevron medal. The color of the top part matches to the shade of the bag. It’s also embellished with the CC logo. The bottom part is refined with gold hardware for the shimmering effect. It’s also embellished with the house’s signature that reads: ‘Chanel Paris’.

The chain strap is even more fine-looking. The chain must be inspired by a jewel-like wear, like a necklace or a bracelet. The chain looks fabulous and elegant. The chain is also connected to a leather strap for shoulder or cross body carry.

Overall, this bag is a great investment partly because it’s seasonal and thus a limited edition piece. The overall design is crafted to last-forever, forever-in-fashion.

The Chanel Chevron Medal Flap Bag vs Classic Flap Bag

Chanel-Chevron-Medal-Flap-Bag-20

Let’s compare the medium-sized of the Chanel Chevron Medal Flap Bag with the Medium Classic Flap Bag. Which bag is bigger, and what’s the price?

The Chanel Medium Chevron Medal Bag is measured 6.3’ x 2.8’ x 9.1’ inches and it’s priced at $4600 USD. The Chanel Medium Classic Flap Bag is measured 6’ x 2.5’ x 10’ inches and it’s priced at $5300 USD.

So what’s the conclusion?

The Medium Chevron Medal Bag is about the same size of the Medium Classic Flap Bag. It’s bigger in some parts but also smaller in other parts. But overall, they can be matched.

The Medium Chevron Medal Bag is priced at $4600 USD while the Classic Flap Bag is priced at $5300 USD. So this seasonal bag is also slightly cheaper too.

So what do you think? Would you rather choose this bag or the Classic Flap Bag?

As a true bag-frenzied friend, we are here to introduce another Chanel bag that might cater to your fancy. Without further ado, here’s Chanel Metallic Square Mini Classic Flap Bag with Black CC Turnlock in all its glory.

An iconic bag that captured the hearts of many, the iconic Chanel Square Mini Classic Flap Bag is no wonder a favourite style staple among fashionistas. Pairing it over their casual shirt and jeans combo or their girly dresses, this Chanel creation is definitely a must-have whatever the season might be!

First seen in Chanel Spring Summer 2017 Collection, this mini bag is reinvented with metallic finishing to tailor fit into the label’s futuristic theme. It purposely pairs with the black on black hardware, which is another new hit for this season.

The bag is still sporting the same thick diamond quilting that Chanel is famously known for. It also still features the leather woven chain shoulder strap for easy and effortless shoulder carrying. The one thing that differs it from all the other Chanel Mini Classic Flap Bags out there would be its beautiful black CC turn lock and the black hardware all over the bag.

Style code A35200, measuring 5.3′ x 6.7′ x 3.1′ inches, estimated price is $2900 USD, €2250 euro, £2100 GBP, $3590 SGD, $18900 HKD, $3780 AUD, ¥318600 JPY, ¥16800 CNY via Chanel boutiques.

Chanel #BaselWorld2017 Watch Novelties

Other Brands

This just in! With #BaselWorld2017 currently ongoing in Basel, Switzerland, Chanel has released a fine selection of watch novelties for the year, and this post will pretty much cover all the ones that I think are to die for. No word yet on their exact prices or release dates, so for now you’ll just have to be content with ogling them online here.

First up, the new #MademoiselleJ12, which is THE watch that marries your love for Coco Chanel and the J12 most wondrously. Limited to just 555 pieces worldwide per colour, it features a lacquered illustration of the Gabrielle herself whose hands literally tell time, yes, they move. Available in both Black and White ceramic styles, the tentative price is set at EUR6900 for now. Which, in all honesty, makes it a pretty cool collectible that won’t exactly break the bank either, especially if you’re a lover of anything and everything Chanel.

For something more understated and something even the boys can get for themselves now, allow me to present the new variations on the Boyfriend. On the left, the sublime Boyfriend in Tweed Beige Gold set with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds. Available in Small and Medium sizes, the one I’m tempted by is the one on the right, the Boyfriend in a new size, Large. Measuring some 37 mm by 28.6 mm, it’s definitely something the more forward of men amongst you can sport on your wrist. Feel the one in Tweed here is still too flashy? There’s a large one in steel, finished with an alligator strap that’s also very handsome.

IMAGE: CHANEL

Next we’ve got the Première Camélia Skeleton, one of the pieces specially created to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Première watch. Equipped with Chanel’s second in-house movement, the Calibre 2, the Camélia has been reimagined into the movement of this fine timepiece which you can already see right through. Yes, that’s nothing revolutionary but given how much thought must have gone into the movement to represent that iconic bloom makes it pretty spectacular in my books.

IMAGE: CHANEL

There are so many more pieces I’ve yet to share with you all, but let’s end off for now with another J12. Limited to just 1200 pieces and only available in White ceramic, it’s known as the J12 Graffiti, which you’ll surely get why just by looking at the watch face. Purely a graphic interpretation with all the numbers having fallen off the face (and some on the bezel), this 38 mm beauty is perfect for the woman who has a sense of humour, prefers living a life unconventional and doesn’t mind fun for fun’s sake, which in a way, is pretty much how Coco Chanel lived hers.

BOY CHANEL CHAIN AROUND BAG

Other Brands

Boy-Chanel-Chain-Around-Bag

We’ve previously talked about the famous Chanel Chain Around Wallet On Chain Bag, now it’s time for the Boy Chanel Chain Around Bag to shine and be the apple of everyone’s eyes so pay close attention.

The Boy Chanel Chain Around Bag is an epitome of how luxurious a Chanel bag looks like. It features the same thick diamond quilting effect but there’s added twist to this newest addition to the Chanel family. Sporting a new design, it has double chain around the edges of the front flap thus giving it more personality and style on its own.

What else does it make it shine brighter than all the rest of the Chanel quilted bags? Well, it features a new and beautiful boy clasp while the chain is also embellished on the handle. Talk about ingenuity and fashion at the same time.

This bag is priced at €5000 euro via Chanel boutiques.
