Chanel Quilted Pleated Tote
One of the latest arrivals to Bag Borrow or Steals’ “What’s New” page, is this gorgeous quilted pleated tote by Chanel. Personally, I am a total fan of Chanel. I admire each and every piece they produce, whether they’re awkwardly designed or yet another timeless piece of luxury. Take this tote for example; although its design isn’t exactly my taste, I seriously can’t dislike it. I admire the heavy quilted leather pattern found throughout the bag, and the very enhanced pleat adds a great touch of character to the bag. Maybe if this bags silhouette wasn’t so round or “basket” shaped, I would find more interest in it. The double rounded shoulder straps seem a bit boring as well; I definitely prefer chained Chanel straps a lot more. I can’t give you a precise retail value of this handbag, but your definitely looking in the two thousands, or so. If I had a couple of “K’s” to spend on a brand new Chanel bag, I would definitely go for a quilted leather flap bag instead, not so much this one. What do you ladies think of Chanel’s pleated tote, do you like it?
