We’ve talked about the Westminster Bag over and over again, yet we’re not finished.
Because there are more styles available of this bag than you can ever imagine. It used to be only the lambskin… but Chanel decided to give us option (the more the better right?)
And so, we would like to introduce the Chanel Tweed Westminster Flap Bag.

By now we’ve already shared a lot of information. Let’s us re-cap; the Chanel Westminster Flap Bag for the Spring Summer 2015 Collection comes in several more styles like printed canvas, lambskin and tweed.
The beauty lies in the chains – it’s sophisticated and mixed with pearls, and feminine. For the new collection, you can choose between black and golden hardware (we mean the chains).
The CC logo is embellished with more pearls, it’s like the gorgeous sister of the Classic Flap Bag. Truly a timeless piece and a must have.
For those looking for more, Chanel has another Westminster Flap Bag in store; it’s entirely made in Tweed, which gives the design a casual-chic look. It’s the ‘must have’ for the summer.Other Brands
The Chanel 2.55 bag was released in 1955, which came with a front lock called the ‘Mademoiselle Lock’.
But there is another famous bag named the ‘Classic Flaps’, which are supplied with a lock in the shape of a double CC. This bag was available since 1980’s.
Today Chanel design the Classic Flap Bags beyond leathers, there are now versions available in tweed, velvet, embroidered with sequins and many more.
And for those that are interested (or for those that owns an iconic bag), these images guide you through the process of making the Classic Flap Bag in Tweed.
Made with care, Chanel’s craftsmen make sure that every stitch is done well. Most are done by hand with the help of basic tools like a hammer.
The internal CC logo is stitched by a sewing machine; the interwoven chains are put together by hand. The quality of these bags represent the quality of the brand, therefore it’s important that each bag is crafted near perfection. At the end, this is also the reason why we spend so much for an accessory. Or is it not?
