Leather, Skins, & Material

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. 

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

What is the cheapest Chanel flap bag?

Chanel clutches and WOC (wallets on chain) are the most affordable pieces in the purse/bag category, starting at $1900 depending on the select styles and leathers.

Does Chanel Still Make Caviar Bags?

It seems that most of the bags released on the official chanel website are made using lambskin or calf leather nowadays. However, there is a possibility that caviar bags are still made from time to time.

Why are Chanel bags so expensive?

All leather goods from Chanel are made with the highest quality materials and by skilled craftsmen in the industry based exclusively in Europe. They do a durability test on every bag they sell, to ensure that each bag will last for years! The bags reportedly are able withstand damage from water and heat. Furthermore, Chanel still continues to raise the prices of the popular styles every year or two.

What is the most expensive Chanel flap bag?

The Chanel Diamond Forever bag is the most expensive Chanel Bag ever created by far. Released in 2007, the bag was the product of collaborative efforts of Designer Karl Lagerfeld and legendary singer-songwriter, Madonna.

euros at AMFAR dinner auctions in order to fight against AIDS.
