There are few designer bags that truly can look as good today as when they were originally released, especially when we are talking over 60 years ago. However the Chanel Classic Flap Bag has changed little over the years, also called the Chanel 2.55 or the Chanel Jumbo flap bag, it still sports the same chain strap interwoven with leather, the same iconic interlocking “CC” logo fastener on the front and the secret pocket on the back, and still the same oversized flap. Yet today this designer bag is as popular, if not more so than all those years back.
What has changed over the years are the sizes and the material used to produce this iconic little devil. Nowadays there are far more variations rather than just the Chanel quilted leather.
By shopping around you’ll be able to purchase this in all kinds of materials from Python, Caviar Leather, Lambskin to Jersey, Velvet and even Sequined!
With regards to size, well you have a choice of Small, Medium, Jumbo and Maxi. If that wasn’t enough choice you could also opt for Square or Rectangular and then add in colour combinations…..the choice is endless. What you will find with colour is that black and beige are staples and that four more colours of Pink, Navy, Red and White are often available and other colours will come and go with the seasons. With all these options on offer you’ll be able to find a Chanel Flap bag to suit your purposes, whether that be a classy night out at a famed restaurant, a trip down the red carpet or even for a city career woman as this bag will certainly make sure all eyes are on you.
Prices of this bag vary, but one thing is certain the price tag for this style only ever increases, so look after it and keep hold of it as it could become a family heirloom.
You could not reasonably imagine that I did not owned one of those Classics. And you are correct! I had actually purchased a true mirror image replica of the Chanel flap bag in black color, from www.runwayhandbags.com some years ago. Last year, I got so many compliments on it from my best friend visiting from Chicago, that I felt I had to offer it to her. I would certainly get myself a new one for less than $500. I have not yet bought myself a new one and this post makes me realize it is about time I would put my hands on one.
What if I would buy one from a few replica websites and review it for you on another post?
