this summer i’m planning on finally buying my dream bag: the chanel A0112 (aka the classic flap bag).
i definitely want it in red.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
(the bag i want looks roughly the same size, maybe a bit smaller considering my 15yrold budget)
but everywhere i look i get multiple answers regarding the colour options and the price.
i’ve always been under the impression that you could buy them in red, black, or white, and that they cost $995; but that could’ve just been fabricated by my mind.
so essentially my question is: what are the available colours & price of this bag ? & price according to size as well, if anyone can.
thanks soooo much.

Oh I do love this bag! And although I love the red, I’d probably buy the black first just so I could wear it with as many ensembles as possible. Have you checked the Chanel website?

yeah i have checked the chanel website, it doesn’t say unfortunately.
i’m guessing that they figure anyone who is going to buy a chanel bag doesn’t consider price an issue.

I have the black lambskin flap and I think it is currently around $2600. It was a few hundred cheaper when I got it 5 months ago. I hope that is some help.

you could always try and find a vintage one? they’re almost certainly cheaper. or go secondhand. you’d be doing the earth a favour as well by recycling… green is the new pink. :D

the red bag is a very coveted color, last time chanel produced a red lambskin (similar to the one in the pic you posted) was last year and the cost of a jumbo was at that time around $2k but they’ve had several price increases over the last year and now the jumbo costs nearly 2K. now the red bag on the other hand, has been going on ebay for $5k and it’s only once in a blue moon that one appears- tahat price applies to used, or in vintage condition. it’s really insane…anyway chanel also made red bags this year but in patent, they’re really vibrant. there may still be some in stores if you want to check them out. i’m an avid collector that’s the reason why i know…anyway, hope that helps :)

I’ve always been under the impression that they start at at least $1000 and the price increases based on size, color, embellishments, material etc.

Yea, I’d go for a vintage one.
Check ebay out, there is always a bargain to be found.
You can find red vintage chanel bags and I think they have a little more chracter and a deeper tone of red, which I love.
But that’s me, you might like the brightness.
On ebay I’d say they go for around £300 and up.
Is that like $600 and up? But hunt and you’ll find a jem.

I’d suggest ordering it from an authorized boutique/ retailer that is not in your state.
NO SALES TAX ON $2K for the WIN!

The bags official name is the Chanel 2.55 (thats may be why the price you found was off a bit). It retails for 2600 and it does come in a variety of colors such as black or metallic blue or whatever, but the majority of those colors are limited editions. If you do want to buy an authentic one though, go directly to the Chanel store! The majority that you will find on ebay will be fake and just bankrupt you out of your money

Jessica Alba wows at Chanel bag 2010 http://www.mywebbags.com
written by cheap chanel bag http://www.mywebbags.com

Jessica Alba isn’t someone we normally associate with chanel http://www.mywebbags.com, but she has been pulling it out of the style-chanel bag

http://www.mywebbags.com for the Paris Haute Couture shows this week. Yesterday Jess brought a white Chanel handbag http://www.mywebbags.com. She

expertly matched her cherry-red belt to her chanel purse http://www.mywebbags.com. We love the fact that she’s there taking snaps of chanel outlet

http://www.mywebbags.com and her buddies on the front row!

if you go vintage on e-bay then make sure there are pictures of the labelling and the seams and that it has the gold ‘made in france’ mark.
