Please help me decide between these gorgeous medium flaps


Jan 23, 2023
Hello. I still do not have a black CF and probably will try to get one this year. I do have an iridescent black CF that can look like black, navy, or purple depending on the lighting. I wear it with black or navy. I agree that it is not a true black so it is not as versatile as a black CF. I enjoy using it nevertheless. In fact, I used it today.

I have 5 chanel bags (light beige, dark beige, silver, black Gabrielle, and dark blue) but for some reasons I dont have a black classic flap lol. With the crazy price hike, I’ve finally decided to get a black one in medium size. After searching for days, I found these 3 gorgeous babies all at very reasonable price.

Iridescent purple (stunning)

And caviar dove grey with silver HW (my perfect kind of combination)

My heart really goes for the iridescent one but somehow I feel like I need a black classic flap (also that’s what I wanted to buy at the beginning), I already have a Celine Triomphe and Hermes Evelyne in black…. Its not that I dont have any black bags.

Anyways, please please let me know what you think? Maybe Im destined to not own a black classic flap .
If you already have black bags and you're not convinced to buy the black CF, then I would go for grey!

I have the classique triomphe and black CF, I think they're different enough to have a black CF in your collection. Triomphe is more casual and trendy, whereas the CF is dressier and more classic. I personally don't find the medium CF to be heavy at all, and I'm not even strong or lift weight on a regular basis, it's just like any other leather bags. You can't really put much in a medium CF anyway so not like your items would add much more weight to it.
