    Wanted to ask everyone what they think of this cross body messenger bag? It is a seasonal piece, $3500. I have not seen the bag in real life only in pictures. I usually baby all my chanels; goal is to find an every day bag that i don't have to worry about too much, is roomy and that the bag itself is not too heavy. Down thing is that the strap is non-adjustable so you can only wrist carry (with top handle) or crossbody. I do have a jumbo, medium, WOC, so if i wanted a shoulder bag im covered any way.

    If anyone has seen this bag in real life please let me know of the structure and if its heavy. My SA said the weight is like a medium boy bag which I find not heavy (I find the jumbo classic lambskin heavy). Anyone thinks this style of bag can last through time? Thanks so much!

  2. Heyy glad this was brought upi think given that its caviar it seem like a suitable work bag..am also thinking about it. I do like the fact that it can go crossbody! My m/l and large vanity case cant:sad: my only concern is that...given the price, it is probably fabric lined...i prefer my bag lined with leather
     
  3. I haven't seen this before and I love it!
     
  4. I absolutely love the handle on this bag. It's so classy! I came close to considering this bag, but the only thing that was stopping me was the non quilted leather against the quilted flap. I didn't think it was too heavy though!
     
  5. OMG I felt the same way about the non-quilted bottom against the quilted flap!!! but then again, on 2nd thought, I think it gives it a more casual vibe, which would be kind of nice for a work bag. I also think that it's probably a good thing that it's single flap and not lined in leather so that it can be lighter. I find that if the bag is being cross bodied, it's more important to be lighter in weight. having a heavy cross body bag is the worst!!

    so all that is to say that I think this is a really nice casual but elegant work bag option and I loooove how shiny that caviar looks on the one in the photo. I bet it looks real classy when carried by hand too.

  7. I like the zipper pocket in the front, perfect for your phone. Leather lined, a little different with the quilting on the flap but not the body of the bag. I think it's nice.
     
  8. Oh yay leather lined!
     
  9. I am also interested in the business affinity series! Would like to see a real life mod photo of the camera case if anyone has it. Thinking about the black or dark pink for a pop of color.

    Someone posted this on the fall act II thread. It appears that the smaller business affinty flap is suede...dust magnet
     
  12. Thanks for posting this! Very helpful.
    I actually really like the small and medium camera cases.
     
  13. It's perfect that I found this thread because I was on the fence about getting the business affinity when I went to the boutique a few days ago. I was thinking of getting the classic flap as my first Chanel but I fell inlove with this bag instead. I really like how roomy it is. My iPhone 6 plus can fit the front zippered pocket. My full size Sarah wallet, key holder, and sunglasses can all fit the inside of the bag with a little more room to spare. There is also a pocket at the back of the bag which also fits my iPhone 6 plus. I need opinions on whether this bag would be a great first Chanel bag. Thanks! :smile:
