No, this isn’t the Classic Flap that you know and love, but one that’s simply classed as the Flap Bag, for the simple reason that while it looks like one on the outside, there isn’t the double flap compartment within. The flip side? This also means that the bag will be a tad lighter than the classic bags, but still retaining all the signatures you love, from the quilted exterior to the leather-interlaced chain strap and of course, the timeless CC clasp.
Another point worth mentioning is that while the biggest size for the Classic Flap would be the Maxi (33 cm by 23 cm), but this particular one is significantly wider and taller, coming in at 39 cm by 24 cm. Which also means those who’ve always wanted something bigger now finally have something they can check out in Chanel boutiques right now.
Packing a slightly relaxed shape, it is perfect for days when you need to carry more stuff, which is always a bonus. And while the one above in Khaki is not available in Singapore, you will be able to find 3 other colours locally, including a metallic silver with ruthenium hardware, as well as a Black and Navy that are finished with shiny gold hardware. Priced at SGD7870, the time is now if you always wanted something much larger, more casual, but no less Chanel.
