Chanel Classic Flap Python


I have been looking for a Chanel exotic for a while now and living in California does not help because python is illegal here. And the really strange thing is, the Rodeo Dr. boutique is really lacking in its bag selection. So when I went to Las Vegas I knew I had to stop in the Bellagio store to see what is up. And besides, my husband still didn’t get me a birthday gift yet, a whole month later. They have by far the best selection of bags I’ve seen and lots and lots of exotics to choose from. As soon as I walked in I spotted this baby of mine on the display table. I shopped around feigning interest in other bags but I knew I was taking this python home with me =) This is truly the one for me. This investment piece has all the requirements of one, the ultimately classic flap bag, the good size, neutral color but still shows the skin beautifully and well, it’s a Chanel. I thought twice about the tassel (which is not removable) but it adds the youthfulness I want and when it’s on the movement really draws attention! It is a chain bag, which is usually against policy but they are really thin and light and stay on. But the main reason for choosing the chain is that it is the embodiment of a classic Chanel bag, so I had to do it. This color is a soft buttery yellow and is so beautiful, creamy and dreamy – it is called Uni which happens to be my favorite food so it’s also yummy! It also comes in black, but black python is pointless, it just looks like a textured leather bag. This extraordinary bag is $3450, which I think is totally reasonable. Remember the White Caviar Tote I was in love with? That is $3875, hello it doesn’t take a financial wiz to know what is the better investment. Call Lena at the Bellagio store at 702-765-5505 to inquire. Thanks Honey for the best birthday gift ever!

    What a lucky lady im sure you will enjoy!! I was reading an article in the UK Hello magazine about the director of MCM her name is Joo-chung Sangi think! Her story was just so inspiring about how difficult it was for her trying to build a career and get the respect from her family as girls are ment to stay at home and look after the family!

    I have never heard of this Luxury brand what are the range of bags and travel bags like?!

    Also i would like to try and locate an last season Oscar de la Renta bag is this going to be impossible?! It was a bag that you featured a gold skin frame bag with tortoise shell buckles?! any ideas?

    Thanks for your help.

    Is it illegal to buy python in California, as well as OWNING an item made in python? I’m wondering if I can purchase this beautiful exotic out of state!! Thanks!

    That’s weird. The label for all my Chanels say “Uni”, except they are all in black caviar.

    I believe it is only illegal in California to sell python. If you are in California, you can buy it out of state and/or bring it into the state.

    I’ve never realized the allure of exotic skins. Sounds crazy but it really feels weird stroking (scales?) and toting animal skins that are obvious like python, alligator, etc…with the exception of cowhide leather of course. That’s only as far as I can go.

    The color is really nice though. Looks creamy and buttery.

    I didn’t even know python is illegal in certain places. Well, non-leather brands like Stella Macartney are equally expensive. Why ban python?

    Hey i have been looking on the web everywhere on the law about selling python. I only found vague ideas on it. I recently bought python shoes and am worried they will not be shipped to me. Any ideas on where to look up the statute?

    Hello Tina
    The beautiful bag you bought for your husband to give you for your birthday, (love that, mine says, “what have I bought you today) does it have a pocket on the back of the bag? Also does it have a stamp on the cc lock which signfies it was made in France? I ask, because I am looking to buy one exactly like it, second hand. Has it proven to be a good buy since it is a few years on since that special birthday. Ha.
    Thanks, you’re my kind of girl….
