Chanel's handbag lookbooks are always fun; they usually contain 35 to 45 bags, ranging from casual looks like denim or canvas to eye-popping exotics and pieces that feature heavy beading or embroidery, all of which give Chanel fans a very good idea of the full lines they'll find in stores. For Pre-Collection Fall 2016, Chanel has been even more generous: its just-launched lookbook features 64 brand new bags.
In this collection, there aren't any heavy pop cultural influences, as has been common in seasonal Chanel collections of the recent past. Instead, Karl Lagerfeld and his accessories team went back to basics, with rich tweeds, quilted leather and embellished python. Every couple of years, it's nice to have a Chanel collection whose only theme is Chanel.
Overwhelming when Chanel introduced the Fall Winter 2016 Collection act 2? Well, they are not done with you…yet. Here’s another bag to choose from. Introducing the Chanel Denim Tweed Flap Bag.
When we spot a ‘Denim-made’ luxury handbag, we will go like: ‘hmm, is it worth the investment?’. Or should we rather choose a ‘leather bag’. But this bag will really make your life difficult. It’s irresistible!
Crafted in denim around the edges, the center features the CC signature in golden hardware. The color combination is just right. And now for the desert, the center is beautifully made with ‘Tweed’ in mix colors but majority in pink – it’s dazzling.
This bag can be worn in all season, just put the right outfit on. So if you’re looking to extend your Chanel collection, here is your chance. Oh yes, but some jewelry on this bag like in the picture; it will only enhance its charm.

This is a new flap bag from the Spring Summer 2016 Collection Act 1. But when it was first-shown on Chanel’s website, we weren’t very excited because it only showed one front closure color which was black. So it was burgundy leather with black closure and white leather and black closure.
But now that we know there are different of colors available, we instantly changed our mind. In fact, we love the pink leather with pink closure in silver hardware as well as this baby blue flap bag with baby blue closure and in silver hardware.
Of course, seeing is better than reading. You can check more colors at Chanel Quilted CC plate Flap Bag.
With this posts we want to share a bag that our friend Amaira bought recently. She shared detailed images of the front, side and even the interior. The baby blue color is really intriguing and to-die-for, so for those that are still considering which flap bag to purchase, perhaps you can check this one out.
The Chanel flap bag is refined in silver hardware with ‘CHANEL’ signature as well as the ‘CC’ logo engraved on the front. The front closure is a new design, which fits perfectly to today’s modern fashion.

We adore very much the Chanel Extra Mini Classic Flap Bag, we’ve seen a lot of colors throughout the years, in black, in fuchsia, in beige, in white, you name it. They are usually crafted in caviar or lambskin, both leathers are lovely.

Although plenty of information factors into the purchase of any particular bag, there’s one fact that likely holds more sway than others for almost all shoppers: price. In our Ultimate Bag Guides, we give you a look at how popular bag designs are priced by size, but that information was always limited to the American market and US dollars–until now. We’re in the midst of building an easier way for consumers to compare prices in different markets around the world, but we wanted to go ahead and get the ball rolling with a price guide for one of the most iconic bags in the world: the Chanel Classic Flap Bag.
If you’re looking for information on dimensions, size names, leathers or hardware, the Classic Flap’s Ultimate Bag Guide is the place to look; as a supplement to that, we’ve created an international price guide for eight prominent global fashion markets, which you can find below. Because Chanel Classic Flap Bag prices can be hard to find, we’ve done our best to find the most accurate pricing information for each size, in each market. If you have a more up-to-date price for one of the sizes listed, please let us know.
All prices listed below are for the Classic Flap in its three most common materials: lambskin, caviar or patent leather. Prices for each country are listed in local currency. Happy shopping.

But we have some great news. Those that are still on shopping-spree in Europe, the Chanel Easy Caviar Flap Bag was spotted in Paris last week. Here’s a message from Kimbetly
‘Yes, its still available in Europe. I just bought the small black Chanel easy flap bag in Paris during the fashion week but the Chanel stores were cleaned out. I found it at the Chanel store in Galleries Lafayette. The price was 2460 euros (VAT Tax refund 410 euros)! I wanted silver hardware but they didn’t have it but the bag is beautiful!’.
What’s so special about this bag?
Well from the design perspective, the Easy Caviar bag looks the closest to the iconic Classic Flap Bag without the huge price tag.
