At the house of Chanel, there are endless types of Chevrons. We have seen a lot, but there will be more to see because fashion is endless innovation. In the past, we’ve spotted Chain Chevron, Chevron Stitching, Multicolor Python Chevron and for the Spring Summer 2017 Collection Act 2, Chanel presents the Large Chevron Quilted Flap Bag.

This is a unique contemporary bag because it’s different than what we’ve seen in the previous seasons. This Chevron Quilted Bag is made with a V shaped Flap, which matches perfectly to the Chevron Quilting. The other parts are inspired by the iconic designs like woven leather chain strap and the interlocking CC logo, resembling to the Classic Flap Bag. What’s more, it has a timeless squared shape, which makes it a good investment.

The top and side is a bit curvy, which is ladylike and flexible. And what you also need to know is that it’s made from calfskin – a durable and scratch resistance leather, but it’s not as hard as the caviar leather.

Carry the bag on your shoulder or cross body; with pride of course because you’ve got a bargain. The medium bag has almost the size like the M/L Classic Flap Bag, but it’s less expensive. For those who have almost given up buying Chanel, because they cannot keep up with the prices, now it’s your opportunity to shine.

A little calculation: the M/L Classic Flap Bag is priced at $4900 USD, but this medium sized bag is priced at $3300 USD, which is a huge difference.

Chanel Bags and 100 Celebs

Today I’m reviewing a bag which is one of my current favorites – the Chanel square mini.

I thought I would be taking a long break from my mini bags after I had a baby, but after I got my routine down, I realized that the opposite is true – I use my mini crossbody bags more than ever, to hold my necessary essentials while I’m running around and don’t want to be weighed down by a large diaper tote. I hope this review is helpful to some of you considering this bag!

Chanel Mini Chevron Caviar Worn

Chanel chevron mini bag, Lucky wedge sandals

This blue chevron mini is the first and only mini I have from Chanel, and my only regret is I wish I had started buying them earlier, when they were a lot cheaper (and easier to find!). I’d been on the fence for a while, but when I saw that Chanel had introduced this cobalt blue shade in chevron caviar for the spring 2016 season, I knew I had to pick one up. The color just struck me!

Chanel Mini Chevron Bleu

Like the rest of the classic flap lineup, the mini has a back pocket where ticket stubs, ID cards, receipts, etc can be stored. I’ve also put my house key in here during short walks (it doesn’t fit a thicker car key).

Chanel Mini Caviar Chevron Back pocket

A little detail I’d like to point out and my least favorite design aspect of the mini – the way that the strap’s interwoven leather is closed. It’s basically just cut off abruptly. Of course I know that the strap has to be reattached in some way, but somehow I don’t think Hermes would ever finish a bag like this. But I wanted to show this detail, in case someone buys one and thinks it’s an one off flaw.

Chanel Mini Strap

Now one thing about the mini – it really is mini! And the square one, which I have, fits even less than the rectangular version. I usually pack mine one of two ways.

Chanel Mini What Fits 2

The first is the way I prefer – little card case, sunglasses in a slip case (you can find a similar leather pouch here), iPhone (I have the giant 6+), and favorite NARS lipstick, plus car keys (not pictured).

Chanel Mini What Fits

Sometimes I’m too lazy to swap out my cards from my regular wallet to a card case – in those times, I can only fit my phone, wallet, and keys (not pictured).

Chanel Square Mini WOC Comparison

I know that a likely question from this review would be one about the mini versus the Chanel WOC (wallet on chain, see my review here). Although I’m still a big fan of the WOC style and how easy it is, the strap is way too long on me naturally when I wear it crossbody. Here’s a comparison so you can see how the two hang.


Shorten WOC strap

My go to way to shorten the straps on my WOC are to cross them over, like shown above. When I do that, the WOC becomes significantly shorter – here’s the length of WOC compared using this method, versus the square mini.

Chanel WOC Strap Shortened

I know that some of you out there are shorties like me, so wanted to provide lots of pictures.

Chanel mini fans – I’d love to hear about your experiences with the bag! Do you love yours, and do you have the rectangle? That’s the next one on my (never ending) list.

Some Q&A on the Chanel Square Mini – if you have more, please leave in the comments and I’ll try to answer.

What’s the retail price? As of August 2016, $2700 in the USA.

What’re the dimensions? 6.5” x 5” x 2.5” inches. The chain drop can vary, between 19-21” inches. The square caviar chevron is a little bit shorter, around 18”. I’m 5’1, and you can see how it looks on me crossbody.

Square vs. rectangular mini? I love that the rectangular fits more (and the shape makes it easier to drop your phone in), but the strap is just a “tad” too long to be perfect on my short frame. I’d still probably get one if the right combination came up – the length isn’t so bad. The square length however, is perfect for crossbody.

Square mini vs. WOC? Both! But if I had to pick only one, I’d go with the square mini – fits a bit more.

The combo I want is sold out. How do I get one? I’ve come to realize that Chanel minis can be difficult to get ahold of, especially in certain color and leathers. If you have your heart set on a particular combination, I’d keep checking sites such as Fashionphile, and The Real Real.

Caviar or lambskin? I love both. Caviar is hardier, but lambskin can do well too, as long as you aren’t too sensitive to scratches. I would try to get a darker color if you’re going for lambskin and are going to wear the bag crossbody all the time, since it’ll likely rub against your pants, and dark denim can be a problem.

This Boy Chanel Fluo Flap Bag made us wonder and daydream about the creativity and innovativeness of the people behind this luxurious French brand. The tri-color combination is too lovely with its neon pink, neon yellow and beige mixture.


This latest addition to the Boy Flap Bag family also offers something new: fabric, mesh and resin. It reminded us of the bubbly Pop 80’s fashion, think of Madonna and Cyndi Lauper-ish styles.

Think of it as adding a pop of color to your monochromatic outfit, works well right?
