Chanel classic flaps are a personal favorite. They're head-turning yet timeless. There are many variations of this classic: lambskin or caviar, different sizes, gold or silver hardware, etc. This time, I'm showing off a Chanel jumbo single flap in black caviar leather with silver hardware.
Caviar leather make this bag super durable. Read about Chanel's most popular leathers here: caviar vs lambskin. The silver hardware also make this bag more modern-looking than Chanel bags with classic gold hardware.
Like all jumbos, this Chanel jumbo bag holds a considerable amount for everyday needs. It easily carries a continental wallet, cell-phone, miscellaneous beauty tools, tissues, small notebook and more.
The backside has a convenient pocket, perfect for a cell-phone.
Its structure and beautiful chain link shoulder straps make it a substantial piece. However, on the shoulder, it's always been quite comfortable and has never weighed me down.

Through the years, Chanel has made many different jumbo flaps. Here are a few different ones including vintage lambskin jumbos with gold hardware. Do you prefer the more modern small CC logo or more vintage large CC logo? I think I've got to have both! :D
Hope you enjoyed this jumbo Chanel bag post. Thanks so much for reading!
