  1. I bought the small Kan I recently (the one with the chain strap). It's a double chain - each link is connected to 2 other links - because of this, I notice the chain tends to kink whenever it's bent because the links don't always automatically line up perfectly with the 2 other ones. It just looks a bit messy until I straighten up the links with my hands. Does anyone else find this is the case with their Kan I chains? I know this is quite common for chunky chain straps in general (I've heard comments about it with the Chanel Boy or Diorama, for example).
     
  2. I removed my chain and replaced it with a Fendi leather strap.

     
  3. I love the look of the chain, I just don't like how easily it kinks and twists. I actually removed the chain from the bag once and when I held it up by one end and just let it hang naturally, it was already twisting. A well made chain should just hang straight down. I have a Givenchy WOC that has a similar issue with a twisty chain. Such a shame because quality-wise, all the other elements and hardware on my Kan I are fantastic.
     
  4. It twists because of the type of link they used - they form a spiral. I’m not a huge fan of chains because, even though they are cute, they are loud and clunky. That being said, I have quite a few chain bags, lol.

     
  5. Congratulations on your purchase ...how do you like the bag on using it? I’m looking at the KAN I f and getting tempted.

I am very happy with mine even despite chain twisting. But, frankly speaking, I am starting to think about Dolce bags which are pretty cool now And for the price of Kan I I could buy a hot DG.
    Your thoughts?

    I wanted to use my Kan I without the chain and switched the shoulder leather to a handle.

  8. Beautiful! May I ask how much you paid for this bag?
     
  9. Nordstrom sale last month - I think I paid around $1100 ?
     
  10. This is the exact Kan I that I have - we're bag twins! Did you attach the original leather strap directly onto the two metal rings on the top of the bag?
     
  11. (Removed duplicate post) - My internet connection is crazy at the moment.
     
  12. Yes - it’s a little tight but I think it works
