Which of the following seasonal bags ($2600-3400) or chanel classic would you choose? I think Id go for it in black or red.

1. Pondichery flap medium 3400
2. French Riveria 2600
3. Chanel 3 medium 3400
4. 2600 not sure what this is called
5. Classic flap

I feel like Id like the hardware on the classic more. Plus the classics would always go up in price. However, its less of a worry to use seasonal flaps as daily bags. This would be my first chanel. What do you guys think. Opinions are appreciated ;)

Is this your first bag? Then go for a classic flap. Always go classic over trendy/seasonal - as they last for years... seasonal you can get tired of and want to sell.

Hi there! I settled with French Riviera before for an everyday bag in lieu of jumbo. I thought I would be happy. Although the French Riviera is a practical chanel catch based on its look and price point, i felt like its missing the Chanel elegance so I ended up exchanging it to a medium classic and now I'm waiting for my jumbo in the mail. It's a lesson learned for me not to settle with seasonal in replace with classic. If you want to start a Chanel collection, start with any in the classic line. You'll never regret it :smile:
if you can wait and save up for classic go for it but if you are working on a budget and only want seasonal, I suggest the black French Riviera. It is practical, spacious and has a look of a classic flap :smile:

I'm not a fan of the riviera, so classic or the bag in the last photo looks nice.

Another vote for the classic flap; you will always remember your first Chanel, like your first kiss, and it should be special. :smile:
