Chanel-Classic-Shopping-Tote

First introduced during the Spring Summer 2016 Collection, the Chanel Classic Shopping Tote is a new addition to the house’s classic line. The design resembles a lot like the Classic Flap Bag, but in a tote bag version. And it also reminds us of the discontinued Grand Shopping Tote.

Chanel Classic Shopping Tote vs Chanel Grand shopping Tote

The Grand Shopping Tote is also known as the GST and it was discontinued in 2015. This bag was extremely popular due to its practical design and the reasonable price tag. When you need a shoulder bag, you went for the Classic Flap Bag. But when you wanted a tote bag, then it was naturally to buy the Chanel Grand Shopping Tote.

The Chanel GST came in two sizes; the large size was called the Chanel GST XL. This bag was crafted in soft diamond quilting and features a printed-version of the CC logo on the center of the bag. This logo created a sense of vintage while the woven chain strap balanced it with a modern touch.

The interior was large enough to store all your daily essentials and more. With woven chain strap, the bag could be carried on the shoulder, on the crook of the arm or just by hand. It was a very handy handbag. Besides being practical, the design doesn’t scream CHANEL at all, which makes it perfect to use as an everyday bag.

The Design

The design on the Chanel Classic Shopping Tote looks a lot like the iconic Classic Flap Bag. Just take a closer look at the features – the diamond quilting, the interlocking CC logo, the woven chain strap and it even comes with a back pocket. All of these components resemble to the Classic Flap Bag, which are inspired by Coco Chanel’s original 2.55 Bag.

The GST is made with double eyelets, linked to the woven chain strap. But the Chanel Classic Shopping Tote is made with just one eyelet on each side. In our opinion, the new design is more intriguing and heart-melting. And also, the printed CC logo is swapped with the interlocking CC, which changes the whole appearance from vintage to modern.

The interior is secured with a quilted leather strap. The inside is crafted with one large compartment, featuring an extra zip pocket and few small open pockets for structuring your items. The size of the interior makes it an ideal shopping bag for the weekend or just for work. It’s an excellent substitute of the discontinued GST design and it can be considered as a collectable item.

CHANEL has designed many handbags with the CC signature on the front, but not all of them are gorgeous and chic (in our opinion). But handbags that look similar to the Classic Flap Bags are usually to-die-for. For example, this Chanel Golden Double CC Flap Bag, can you turn your back on it?

This bag is a true statement-maker, it stands out even more than the Chanel Classic Flap Bag. The golden CC embellishment is not only shining bright, but it’s the first thing that any human eye will point to whenever they see you carrying it on your shoulder. It’s all about flaunting without effort and it is still a perfect everyday wear at the same time, for the weekends or the evenings.
The Chanel Golden Double CC Bag is quilted and comes with an interwoven chain link; it’s so luxurious that you will want to add it to your exclusive bag collection. On the other hand, if you already got the Classic Flap Bag, this version has an entirely different appearance.

To be honest, we were not thrilled with many seasonal bags, but the designs of the flap bags remain gorgeous. And of course, the boy bags were overwhelming hot and we were literally drooling – All of them please!Chanel-Studded-Fla-Bag-Grey
Studs can break or make a bag, depending on how it’s decorated on the exterior. It’s not a common thing that Chanel embellished their famous ‘Classic Flap Bag’ with little studs. Truly a work of art – small round shaped studs that look a bit like pearls are gently put on the quilts, which makes the bag more shiny and appealing.
And when its time for the night-out with the girls, the city lights will reflect on the little studs, creating an impact on everyone walking pass you.
