The Chanel Classic Flap, or Chanel Iconic, is just that: iconic. It is easily one of the most recognizable handbag shapes of history, and will continue to be for eternity. But while you can opt for the more classic renditions of this bag, seasonally Chanel releases versions that are new and coincide with the collection as a whole.
This specific bag caught my eye, for its modern combination of black and white colors on this timeless shape. As part of the Métiers d’art 2020/21 collection, there’s a simplicity paired with modernity to this black and white Classic Flap design. The lambskin leather is supple to the touch, and if you have a Chanel lambskin bag you know it only breaks in more beautifully with time. As for the black and white color pairing; Chanel implemented a monochromatic rectangular colorblock that gives this bag a really interesting design touch.
The gold metal paired with the black and white is the hardware pairing I like most. As for your wardrobe? I love this bag with everything from simple denim and a single colored top to a black dress to your winter wardrobe. It’s classic yet different, and sometimes, even with the most classic bag, we still want a twist.
