Hello everyone!! i am about to make my first Chanel Purchase and i am torn on which style of leather i want. can you help!!!!??? my Buyer at Saks found me 2 maxi bags one is the classic black in caviar leather the other is the lambskin in teal. i LOVE the feel of the lambskin and LOVE that color but i have lil ones and i see the lambskin is more prone to scratches. i also hear that the lamb quilt has a tendancy to flatten out, even when stored in the bag and box? truth be told i always wanted a large black in the lambskin (a true classic) but no one can find one apparently so.... decision time.... :nuts:
anyone have good or bad experiences with either or both leathers?? i am open for any feedback/opinions and it is greatly appreciated!!

Metro DC area... for now...
I would go with the Caviar. The leather will hold up a lot better than the lamb. In addition, since you want to purchase the Maxi, the caviar looks a lot better as a structure. With the lamb, you tend to get "wings" in the maxi shape.

Wait for the colour and leather that you really want! There are always waiting lists...

If you can wait, you should wait for the black lambskin you always wanted.
If you can't wait, then go for the caviar black.
GL in your decision :thinking:

I would hold out and wait for lambskin if that's your first love. Maybe try waitilisting with a few SAs?

hold out and wait for the lambskin! It's sooo much softer and more elegant than the caviar in my humble opinion.
