Chanel Metallic Crackled Bag
Bling bling for sure. This bag can be spotted from a mile away. Chanel’s new metallic crackled calfskin flap bag from the Spring/Summer ’08 line gleams of gold and with the silver accent oozes shimmer. This bag is a far cry away from Chanel’s usual basic quilted leather bag but maintains the tradition with its simple shape, chain strap, and Chanel logo buckle.
This bag is the link between classic chick and funky couture. It is the perfect bag with an evening dress, to funk up a pair of jeans, or to glam up for a night out on the town. Its funky enough to stand out on its own but simple enough to wear with any outfit. Many times, such shiny, metallic bags can look kind of cheap and be the quick trend of a season but this bag is made of the finest quality and boasts of exceptional detail. It is one of those bags that can be carried on and off for years. With this bag, Chanel has truly upheld its tradition of always offering something old with something new.
