Chanel Pre-Spring 2017 Flap Bag With Top Handle


You know the problem with bags these days? Innovative, new and sometimes strange. Which, to be frank, isn’t all bad, but when you’re faced with the decision of what to spend your hard-earned money on, it’s not necessarily the best thing, especially if you can only carry that beautifully-odd-yet-quirkily-fun bag for less than 6 months because it is just too much of a seasonal piece.

The solution? Look for something that’s classic and simple, much like this quilted number from Chanel’s Pre-Spring 2017 collection. Crafted out of soft lambskin leather, there’s nothing more reassuring than a beautifully-quilted piece that’s been given a minor reinterpretation of sorts. Shaped like a trapezoid with rounded sides, there’s the metal-laden top handle that’s quite vintage-chic, along with a long leather sling which can be used on the bag or completely removed if you prefer a cleaner look.

Measuring 24 cm by 14 cm, the SGD6190 leather Flap Bag isn’t exactly entry-level as far as its price is concerned, but for something you can use for years and years to come (as opposed to just 6 months) it is probably worth the money, don’t you think? Just do the math.


Available in Dark Blue as well as Black (shown above), you can check it out now at Chanel boutiques in Singapore as we move from the Cruise 2017 collection into the Pre-Spring 2017 line-up.


And for those who prefer something that’s a tad more squarish in shape, there’s also this, a 25 cm by 18.5 cm beauty in white lambskin leather (SGD6410) that’s also pretty divine. Truly.

    I bought the tote version and I personally prefer that to this flap version. You should do an article on the tote.

    As for the price point, I think it is fair across the collection. This bag is leather-lined and has feet. My tote cost SGD7050 but totally worth it considering the workmanship that had gone into making the bag.

    My only complaint is that Chanel SG only brought in the Beige and Black versions. I had to get my Blue one overseas. Also, there should be a Dark Pink version too for the tote but it is so elusive!
