CHANEL BOY FLAP BAG MEDIUM PLUS

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Boy-Flap-Bag-Medium-Plus

You might have heard the news already, but a new Chanel Boy Flap Bag in medium size has been released. We’ve been informed about this for some time, but wanted to learn more before dropping a review.

Listen:

Monica: ‘Yes, the boy bag is in old medium size, the new medium they named it the medium plus’.

So, please meet Chanel Boy Flap Bag Medium Plus.

And yes, they did it again. Some time ago, Chanel discontinued the Chanel Jumbo Classic Flap Bag in single flap and then introduced the Jumbo in double flap. Of course, the new Jumbo is bigger and heavier. After that (in 2009), the Maxi Classic Flap Bag was born.

Is big and bigger the new trend?

Let’s compare the sizes first:

Chanel-Boy-Flap-Bag-Sizes-2

Chanel Boy Flap Bag Medium
Size: 5.7’ x 9.8’ x 3.5’
Price: $4,700 USD

Chanel Boy Flap Bag Medium Plus
Size: 7.1’ x 11’ x 3.5’
Price: $5,200 USD

As you can see, the Medium Plus is larger; I mean it’s really much bigger. Not only that, it comes with more interior pockets like a zip pocket and open pocket. And because of these extra features, the Chanel Boy Medium Plus Flap Bag is also heavier. Naturally, it also comes with a higher price tag, it’s $500 USD more expensive than the normal size.

Now, do you want to know what’s more interesting?

Let’s do another comparison. Let’s put the Medium next to the Medium Plus and add the Chanel Boy Large Flap Bag (In Metallic Calfskin for the Fall Winter 2014 Collection) too.

Chanel-Boy-Flap-Bag-Sizes

A real surprise huh? The Medium Plus is almost similar to the Large size. According to the dimension, it is, in some way, a bit bigger.

Let’s put the dimension together:
Chanel Boy Flap Bag Medium: 5.7’ x 9.8’ x 3.5’
Chanel Boy Flap Bag Medium Plus: 7.1’ x 11’ x 3.5’
Chanel Boy Flap Bag Large Size: 6.5’ x 11’ x 3.3’

So which one would you choose? The normal ‘Medium Size’ or the ‘Medium Plus Size?’. Here are two opinions:

Monica:’im 5’0 so i prefer old medium’.

Winni: ‘Cz of my height n size, I Can’t carry large size bag. So last year when I decide to buy le boy, I had tried small and old medium. Small size suit me more while old medium only longer than small from mirror view. It’s the length of the bag kinda not match with the height of the bag’.

When to choose the Chanel Boy Medium Plus Flap Bag?
First, it’s a personal choice. If you love larger handbags, then why not? Then personal choice again, if you are the type of person that loves to store a lot of essentials, then the Medium Plus is perfect for you. Then it’s your height, if you are not that tall, like 5’0 or so (just like what Monica says), then bigger bags might not look good on you. Then you should just go for the medium size.

Now, a few more additional information before we let you digest the new information:

Kiki: ‘Help! My friend went to Germany Chanel store they said that the Boy bag in Black color has discontinued?! Is that true? Im desperate for a black boy bag, she’s going to France tomorrow, hope she can find something. Is that true that they discontinued?’

Kiki: ‘It’s the old medium Quilted Boy bag in black, my friend went to Paris she get the same respond. They say it seasonal and it has discontinued now they only have bright colors’.

And so, what do you think? Let us know =).

LGS Redefines Re-Commerce: The Boy That Got Away

Categories:Other Brands

LGS Redefines Re-Commerce

The business of re-commerce is bigger than ever, thanks to social media and technology. With so many sites around, it’s hard to navigate and zero in on the best. I recently discovered LGS in Dallas (and Chicago!), founded by two childhood friends, Brielle Buchberg and Lindsay Segal. LGS is Brie and Lindsay’s joint vision: A curated designer retail experience and consignment boutique rolled into one.

I did a major spring cleaning and donated boxes to tornado victims in Dallas and decided to give the rest to LGS. I’m somewhat of a hoarder, so it was a good thing LGS sent over two consigner advisors/managers. We had a great time deciding what to keep, what to store, and what to say adios to. Within 12 hours, they’d sold a Birkin bag that had been in its box since I bought it – for double what I paid (if you still doubt the investment value of a Birkin, read this). I see LGS as an adoption agency for luxury goods. They assured me my Birkin is now in a loving, non-smoking home.

But things have a way of breaking even, and just as quickly as they sold my bag, I found one on their site I’d been looking for forever. Now I have my eye on Chanel’s special-edition mini Boy bag in silver stingray. I wanted it when it came out but hesitated for too long. I’ve always thought of it as the Boy that got away. This time, I think I may pull the trigger!

Chanel-Seamless-Greek-Boy-Brick-Bag

Remember the Boy Brick Bag? The flagrantly expensive shoulder bag, inspired by Lego and worn by the most famous celebrities?

Well, the bag is back.

For those that have missed the opportunity, now it is the chance to get one for your wardrobe. The Chanel Boy Brick Bag is a rare design – unique and timeless.

Let’s brag more about it…

The size is comparable to the mini bag. The beauty about the Chanel Boy Brick Bag is in the design. You see, on the front there are six bricks (now you know why its called the boy brick) decorated and beautified with an extremely large vintage CC logo on the front.

The chains are large enough to wear on your shoulder or cross body. For this season, Chanel has added a new print – the seamless Greek Print, which is the black pattern in the center of the bag.

The nice texture and the combination color of black and gold makes this accessory an everyday item and easy to wear from day to night, even from Spring to the Winter season. Measuring 4.7’ x 5.9’ x 2.4’ inches, priced at 3250 euro (and expected price of around $4300 USD), available via Chanel boutique.

Chanel-Boy-Patent-Quilted-Flap-Bag

Okay, try to get this – the evolution of the Boy Bags.

The story began with the Chanel Boy Quilted Flap Bags, timeless handbags that everyone loves. Then Chanel started to experiment, hmm, let’s introduce the Lego Clutches, you remember?

The Lego Clutches, also known as the Chanel Boy Brick Clutch Bags, and they came with interwoven chain links (sometimes with a simple leather strap), but they looked like toys – cute and gorgeous.

Then they moved on and remodeled the Boy Quilted Flap Bags, and finally they came with ‘Metallic Patent’ for the Spring 2014 Collection. The Boy in Metallic Patents were available in unbelievable-lot-of-colors. In red, in, silver, green, pink, fuchsia, blue and they were all shining (almost eye-blinding).

Now, let’s melt them together – the Chanel Boy Brick Clutch Bag and the Chanel Boy Quilted Flap Bags in Metallic Patents.

Presenting for the Cruise 2015 Collection, the Chanel Boy Patent Flap Bags with Patented CC Boy Logo.

How luxurious can you get?

These Boy Quilted Flap Bags are going to be available in a lot of colors, but we want to give you a preview right now. We want to show you the bag from the front to the right, so you can judge whether you are going to like it or whether you are going to love it.

More information will be shared later on.

Bag Battles: Chanel Boy Bag vs. Christian Dior Diorama Bag

Categories:Other Brands

Bag-Battles-Chanel-Boy-Bag-Dior-Diorama-Bag

The super-popular Chanel Boy Bag and the new-but-coveted Christian Dior Diorama Baghave a lot in common. The bags are both fairly new marquee additions to their respects brands’ lines, likely intended to appeal to a younger audience that might find their respective’ brands legacy offerings a little too ladylike. They also have similar structures and shoulder straps, but there are some noteworthy differences.

The Boy Bag, despite being a little edgier than the Classic Flap, does tend to have the sense of traditional luxury to it that generally characterizes Chanel bags. By the same token, the Diorama skews considerably more futuristic, which is Raf Simons’ general preference in interpreting Dior’s enormous aesthetic legacy. The bags have functional similarities, but the brands have chosen to take them in two distinct directions.

As for value: the bags are priced very similarly, and they come from brands that generally command prices at similarly high levels. There’s no clear edge one way or the other here.

In this Bag Battle, it’s impossible for me to pick a favorite overall; my preference comes down to the two specific versions of the bag being compared at any given time, and since both come in many sizes, leathers, colors and finishes, there are a lot of possible answers. Let us know which bag you like best in the comments!
