CHANEL ELAPHE DOUBLE CHEVRON FLAP BAG

Other Brands

Chanel-Elaphe-Double-Chevron-Flap-Bag

Not every seasonal handbag is lower priced than the Classic Flap Bag. But for the Chanel Elaphe Double Chevron Flap Bag from the Pre-Fall 2018 Collection, we get the value for the cash we invest. Not only is the style refreshing and unique, but it’s created with a touch of exotic leather. The overall appearance feels fabulous and timeless. So should we put it on our wish list?

The Design

The chevron quilting is as famous as the diamond quilting because both appear to be chic. The Double Chevron Flap Bag is designed with a chevron-stitched flap, but below the flap it’s made in smooth leather. The chevron stitching moves from the flap to the back.

But what’s truly overwhelmingly gorgeous is the double flap. The outer flap is crafted in calfskin, but there is another flap behind the calfskin flap. That flap is made from Elaphe, which is an exotic leather. The Elaphe flap is crafted with the CC logo, but the calfskin flap is also built with a gold button cc that function as a closure.

The sides are also embellished with Elaphe leather as well as the leather patch of the chain-leather strap. And also, the reason why we crazy about the bag is the multiple ways of carrying. The chain can be used as a handle bag (this handle chain is made from gold and silver hardware). Then there is a long chain with leather patch for shoulder carry.

The back also comes with a back pocket just like the classics. This back pocket is also made from Elpahe.

The Interior

This is a flap bag, which means that there is enough space for your must-take essentials. And also the interior space depends on the size of the bag. There are multiple sizes, but the ‘mini size’ is comparable to the Small Classic Flap Bag, but then a bit smaller.

The size of the Chanel Mini Double Chevron Flap Bag is 5.5’ x 2.3’ x 8.6’ inches and the price of the Small Classic Flap Bag is 5.7’ x 9.3’ x 2.3’ inches. Just to give you some comparison.

ALISON BRIE ON THE #METOO MOVEMENT & THE PRESSURE TO BE SEXY

In her interview, Alison talks about the pressure to be sexy even with the #MeToo movement.

Although, even right now, in this explosive moment, there is still a thing where we’re like, ‘Yeah, I’m taking back my body, and I don’t have to be sexy…But I’m also 35, and do you still find me sexy? Because I just want to make sure.’ It’s like as much as we want to think everything’s changed, I still have a fear about wanting to be seen that way enough to continue to work.”

CHANEL CHEVRON MEDAL FLAP BAG

Other Brands

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.

Chanel-Chevron-Medal-Flap-Bag-17

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?

CHANEL CHEVRON STATEMENT TOTE BAG

Other Brands

Chanel-Chevron-Statement-Tote-Bag

It’s big and beautiful; the Chanel Chevron Statement Tote Bag is the new addiction, but it will also make our life harder. Because now we need to decide between this Chevron Bag or the Large timeless CC Bag. Which one would you rather have?

CHANEL CHEVRON STATEMENT BAG OVERVIEW
  • Chanel Chevron Statement Flap Bag
  • Chanel Chevron Statement Tote Bag
  • Chanel Chevron Statement WOC
  • Chanel Chevron Statement Square WOC
  • Chanel Chevron Statement Pouches

 

The Chevron Statement Bag is bolder of course and more attention-grabbing due to the large V patterns. The overall design looks as classic as the iconic bags, which makes it worth the investment.

This tote bag is introduced for the Pre-Fall 2018 Collection. But this Chevron Statement style was first introduced in the Fall Winter 2018 Collection Act 1, which started with the flap bag. The flap bag became rapidly famous in very short period of time and maybe it will join the ranks of the upcoming classics.

The Design

Everything that the ‘classic totes’ has, the Chevron Statement Tote Bag has them too. And maybe even more because it comes with two strong leather handles for hand carry. It’s a fine shopping bag for casual days or for work with plenty of interior spaces.

The bag is built with large Chevron V patterns on the front and back. The sides are quilted with diagonal lines. The calfskin leather is another big plus because it means that the bag is strong, long-lasting and with minimum attention needed for maintenance. The center is crafted with the signature smooth CC logo in gold hardware while it includes the long woven chain leather straps for shoulder carry.

And because the Statement Chevron Flap Bag is already so famous, this Tote Bag version will certainly leverage on its fame.

The Interior

Chanel-Chevron-Statement-Tote-Bag-3

The Chevron Statement Tote Bag features a leather-strap button closure. There is one big main compartment inside including a zip pocket and two patch pockets.

The Prices And Sizes

Style code A91643, measuring 10.6’ x 5.1’ x 12.2’ inches, priced at $4900 USD, $6200 CAD, €4260 EURO, £3830 GBP, $7260 SGD, $39000 HKD, $7090 AUD, ¥598320 JPY, ¥34900 CNY, ₩5940000 WON.
