The Chanel Classic Flap is available in two quilting styles: the iconic classic diamond quilt and the chevron quilt. In addition to the type of quilting, the Classic Flap is available in a wide variety of leathers and materials with Caviar leather (grained calfskin) and Lambskin (buttery smooth leather) as Chanel’s two most popular leathers. Other leathers used include Patent leather, Glazed calfskin and Goatskin. Those hoping to make a bold and colorful statement may opt for an Iridescent Classic Flap or Classic Flap Métiers D’art - an elaborately embellished and handmade version of this closet staple. Both of these variations are considered special edition and are made in smaller quantities.
If you’re looking for a variation more exotic and exclusive may find the Classic Flap in Ostrich, Python, Alligator and Crocodile skins. However, the use of these exotic skins has been discontinued since 2018, resulting in a spike in resale prices.
