The first impression on the Chanel CC Frame Flap Bag is definitely: ‘Whut?’. If you didn’t know it’s a wearable flap bag, you will most likely hang it like a piece of expensive historical item in your living room. And your visitors can read on the golden tag what they are dealing with: ‘SAC 1112, CHANEL, COLLECTION PRIVEE’.
There’s somehow a strong connection between CC and Chanel bags, have you seen the Chanel Trendy CC Tote or the Newest WOC Fancy CC yet? No? Go check them out.
The Chanel CC Frame Flap Bag was released in the Spring Summer 2014 Collection and like its name says: ‘It’s a flap bag’. However, I would not be surprised if you were confused. What you see in real life is actually the iconic Chanel Classic Flap Bag in black and lambskin attached to a black shiny plexi frame on the back. It could be as well a clutch, if they didn’t embellish the interwoven chain.
This bag was first seen on the SS2014 catwalk and the classic flap bag is much smaller than you see on the picture. But what amazed me the most is when you start asking yourself: ‘How do I store my essentials?’. It’s then you figure out that the plexi glass can be opened – like an elegant boxy clutch, like a make-up box.
The exterior is black and the interior is red, just like the classic Chanel bags. Measuring 6.7’ x 8.7’ x 2’ inches, it’s available in two shades; black and beige. And of course you ask, the price… its $6,300 USD at your local Chanel boutique. The style code is: A69767.
What do you think about this bag, practical or not?
