Hi Chanel lovers,

what do you guys think about my caviar leather on my small flap classic 30xxxxxx serie?
Is she beautiful? Shiny enough? Puffy enough?

Best,

Can you check right at the flap edge? On top of the cc logo? Is the caviar peeling in anyway? I got my 20B caviar in chevron today and it was a total mess! See pictures. I'm trying to see if it's even worth it to seek a replacement or should I just wait until cruise since this season's caviar seems not so great? Or maybe it's just mine. ‍:hrmm:

I purchased the same bag on 2020/9/7. I wish it is a bit puffier and shinier. I had choices of 3 GHW small CF. None of them were perfect. One had very dull and flat quilts. I couldn't feel the caviar with my finger tips. One of them was a bit shinier but the lining had huge air pocket. I turned down both. The SA magically pulled another one out which is the one I purchased. There was a SHW one with puffy and shiny perfect caviar. My mind was set on Gold so I picked this one. What would you pick? The silver puffy perfect one or settling for GOLD. By the way, the lining of all 4 bags all have air pockets. They are not nicely tugged like my other bags. Do your bag have the same issue?

I think your bag look beautiful. I will give it a 9 out of 10. Mine is 8 out of 10.

I only prefer gold hardware with black caviar. For color, I prefer silver to tone down like my red. I dont have any hair pockets at the bottom.

Yours looks beautiful!
Now I am very concerned. I know it's not normal to have air pocket inside but all 4 small CF had the air pocket in some degree. What is the odds? One of them was really bad, both the bottom and the side had huge lumps. I know it's just a bag and I probably wouldn't care this much in a couple months. However, those things such as air pockets, not so puffy and shiny quilts, pop stitches, small scratches etc. still take the joy out of a new purchase.

Hi just wanted to get some assurance here as I am quite new to Chanel ,these are my 2 new classic caviar flaps in the 30 series . They are not as pebbled and quite smooth to the touch .

there was another more pebbled medium for me to choose but the 4 corners at the bottom were not pebbled ( as in you can see some bald spots)

I understand each batch of caviar is different , so hoping this series wears well

Is smoother caviar less durable in any way to a rougher more pebbled one ?

hope to get some opinions here . Thank you thank you to the thread starter too ;)

I love yours. I prefer the smoother caviar to the more pebbly kind. It almost looks like lamb. Mine is more pebbly.
