How do you like the new luxury line?

Jan 10, 2006
I took a look today because I was obsessed with the bowler bag. But I was a bit disappointed. I'm not a Chanel enthusiast, but was hoping to become one....

The bags are attractive, but they didn't quite do "it" for me... The medium size bowler can't be fit under the arm comfortably--so it was a "no go" for me... The tote is attractive, but doesn't do enough for me.


Look out Singapore!!

What I am glad about is the Chanel didn't go overboard with the details and embellishement - they kept it simple ... and the leather bags are gorgeous, just not jaw-dropping gorgeous ... the denim - after all it is denim and I don't think denim quality changes mauch - is overprices, even for a Chanel ...

If the luxury line is geared to showing that the fabrics used are expensive - then I can understand it. But not for denim ...

But I like the new handles - with the chains stiched directly into the fabric ....

i have not checked them ut personally, but jills' bag is stunning. i am planning a visit this thursday, though. lets see what i come home with.

Are you going to a Chanel boutique? If so, could you keep your eye out for patent flap bags? I'm looking for one that's on the larger side, like the large Reissue or the Jumbo flap... Thanks!

I love my new lux bag, too (I have the red flap). I like the chains and the non-quilting (even though all my other Chanels have quilting). It's a really fun, casual bag. You should try to see one in person and hold it.

I feel like the flat tote is a little too heavy.
I finally got to see the denim line luxury and I just think the edge of
denim that chains run thru inside the bag could be run easy.
So far no problem yet but that's the only part I'm worry about.
I really love the Goat skin shining metallic in silver flap bag.

And it's surprise me to know now this bag have part2.
Nothing much different than part 1 just French man forget to
make cellphone holder for inside the bag.
So some of you guy who bought this luxury line will have cellphone
holder inside if bought it after March 20.
Enjoy buy Chanel LUX line!
