Hi there!
Anyone know about or have a Chanel Lady Pearly Flap? I did some searches here, you tube and Google. I was only able to find those for sale. No real reviews :sad:

I'm just curious, as I'm not knowledgeable about Chanel. If anyone can give general info, value,, or reviews.

Thanks!

hi! Thanks for responding!

I found this one... its purple caviar leather but the photo looks darker... I guess they don't make them anymore? Do you this this style was either copied by or Chanel copied the Gucci Marmont flap? I think it retailed around 3k. I bought it for 1800.

I had one and I was in love with it until I put all my stuff in it - it folded in at the top with the weight due to the way i the bag is designed (there was no "support" for lack of a better word in the flap part, and the way the grommets were placed vs the chain), so I had no choice but to return it. I really tried to make it work as I was crazy about it! I got the impression the boutique knew about this design flaw as they never gave me a problem with the refund..

Yea the fold at top is the main thing it bothers me with that bag... i got mine at a steal and it’s my throw around chanel bag, so i don’t mind it so much... if i paid full price i would feel the same way as you

That is a shame about the flap. My variety is different than yours. the flap hasn't collapsed. maybe it will?

Good for you!
so nice to have a throw away chanel bag!
This is my first. I thought the price seemed good (more in my price range than new or even used boy bag or traditional flaps) and its in perfect condition.
