There are a lot of really amazing bags from Chanel this season – this is not the best in the collection but it is our Cheap Thrills of the week. That’s right, you heard right, but this is a Chanel Cheap Thrill so the standards are a bit different, it is over $1000. It’s really smart to them to make bags at a lower price point, it allows the label to be accessible to the younger girls to get them hooked but it’s not like they are bending over backwards to achieve this, it is still a very Chanel bag. Fabric has been done by Chanel so it is not a huge departure and it is a classic flap, but the novelty crinkled patent finish is refreshing and hip. This picture makes the fabric look kind of cheap but in person it is quite lush, it is not a super shiny patent which I prefer. The fabric is slightly puffed so it feels really good against the body and of course is super light which makes the bag that much more desirable. The only detail that bothered me is the CC magnetic closure on the flap – does it cost that much more to put in the classic CC twist lock closure? If so, I would pay an extra $100 to have that. $1295, call (800) 550-0005 to have one located for you but I suspect this will be available at every boutique.
