Thank you for that! The old reissue can only be worn on shoulders or even as a top handle bag. It cannot be used as crossbody and neither can 227s above! I wanted some colour. Ideally would have either 225 or 226 in blue and red. You present a very good argument of not changing anything!I like them all but choosing for a different person is very difficult. You sound like you have a nice collection. Is this a case of change for changes sake? I stopped at 5 Chanel when I realised I wasn't suing them very much. My favourite and most used is a black small 1980s flap ghw.
I would never let a black reissue go for the ones posted, certainly the sequins would off the table, I think they have limited use.
Sequins are delicate, finish on metallics is unproven and black hw is also worrisome (I have all, but not Chanel). Personally, I would keep the black reissue and use it.
Thank you. The red is patent caviar. I am inclined to agreeing with you. After posting here and the polls, I am reaching a similar conclusion too!None of these, the sequins just seem very delicate & I would be afraid they will fall off; the blue looks like it is sagging and losing structure; and the red one looks almost painted to me. Idk something seems off about that red one.
My Chanel mini is a statement bag! So that covers the sequins…Ahhhh.....don't sell your black medium reissue from 80s. It's a classic.
From purely aesthetics and how I use bags. I prefer the red with black hardware. I use a lot of red and pink bags from different brands. They are great accent pieces.
Sequins, I'd never even think it. They are basically painted plastic bits threaded together. If you want a statement bag, go for gold or silver leather!
