My 1st was this exact bag in the lambskin. It's what I think of when I think of Chanel. This is the epitome of a classic bag. With that said, I would recommend the caviar leather. It's low maintenance & will not look its age years from now. The lambskin may look great now, but it is inevitable that the quilting will flatten over time & the leather is so much more prone to scratches. If I had to do it all over again, I'd get the caviar.
