I was told it's just something new; it may be added to the line for good, but it will NOT replace the old chain.

I prefer the classic chain. It hangs over the bag and doesn't fall on the bag, which can ruin your lambskin bags and make an imprint on them

I know the question wasn't to vote for old or new BUT I prefer the old. It doesn't overpower the look of the actual bag, imo.

To the question, apparently it's just an alternative chain, for now anyway.

Def not replacement..I think chanel will lose a lot of customers and also go against its roots as a brand....def not something even a mildy sane person would decide on...must say never liked the new chain

I think the new chain gives the bags a new edge that attract a younger generation to discover Chanel. The new chain can however never replace the old one, but it does make a good complement.

i love my new chain - it's such a pretty chain in silver and i don't feel as dressed up as i do with my classic chain bag.

Could someone post comparison photos? I don't know the difference. I only own one Chanel. I'm sure it would be appreciated by many.
