When I first saw pics of it, I didn’t like it at all. Thought it looked like a replica but probably because I was used to seeing the ever so popular rectangular mini. Changed my mind when I saw it on the runway. Seemed a little more edgy and casual than the coco handle. I am a fan
Also, I dont think the concept/design was new at all as I have seen some vintage chanel in the rectangular shape with a handle (similar to that of the coco handle).
I’ve been mulling this over as well...I think it looks odd unfortunately. Its a great concept since I love bags that also have a top handle so I am disappointed. Maybe it will grow on me but I kind of doubt it.
I would consider this a 'good deal' for Chanel compared to the mini it is 'only' +$300 for a strap AND handle! lol
And I think it is a good alternative to those would miss the mini caviar. Best to buy it at its 'entry' price because we all know it'll get a price increase at some point
