for me i bought black caviar as it doesnt need much maintenance and i have no worries bout color transfer! if you decide to get seasonal colors, its probably best to get it in lambskin as lambskin can bring out the full color. do you see any color that caught your eye in this recent season collection?

OP, welcome to Chanel forum. Please check this thread. It contains a valuable information regarding 255 (reissue) and the classic flap. http://forum.purseblog.com/chanel-reference-library/reference-2-55-vs-classic-flaps-407757.html.

Regarding the leather, 255 is only available in lambskin. On the other hand, the classic flap comes in lambskin as well as caviar. The lambskin has a very smooth feel and it has a luxury look. However, it is quite sensitive. The caviar is more texture and less sensitive.

Regarding the color, I think it is more on personal preference. If you like vibrant color, Chanel has a wide variety of choices (red seems quite popular nowdays). Beige is one of Chanel's all-time favorite if you are more on subtle color.....

Don't wanna be a downer here but you should know that Chanel is getting more common and more commonly faked... LOL.

Suggestions for first flap here: http://forum.purseblog.com/chanel/my-first-chanel-548174.html

How about beige, or a color like red/blue? Navy blue caviar would be perfect for you if you're looking for a gorgeous low-maintenance color but don't want black.

well you are so right.. even chanel are getting popular in my country but somehow LV is always on the top list!!:biggrin:

talking about chanel colors, i believe these seasonal colors are hard to find right?? i have called the boutique and they told me in malaysia here, we only have black and white for classic flap! so sad!!

unfortunately, seasonal colours might need to be wait listed. Black and beige are a part of the permanent collection.
Good luck in finding the right colour for you.
