“To be irreplaceable, one must be different”
CHANEL offers a variety of leathers, but the most popular and most counterfeited ones are Kaviar-Leather and lambskin. The classic smooth lambskin is in comparison with the Kaviar-Leather softer, has a smooth appearance and is homogeneous. The Kaviar-leather, on the other hand, is grained and is often described as more robust and scratch-resistant. The Kaviar-leather is characterized by its fine elevations, which are reminiscent of black Kaviar reminiscent. It should also be noted that CHANEL also offers fabric bags.
All seams of a CHANELBag are extremely precise and uniform in their appearance. The stitches of a single seam are an indication of whether it is an original. As a rule, a seam consists of 11 stitches. A seamless transition is possible both on the back of a Bag on the attached compartment as well as on the front of the flap.
The inner lining dresses the Bag perfectly. It fits well and does not form wrinkles or "loose" places. The inner lining is, like the entire CHANEL-.Bag, lined with the best and high quality leather.
The CHANEL chain
The chain of a CHANELBag has a high own weight and is made of metal. In vintage models before 2008, the metal was covered with 24 carat gold. The leather of the chain is braided through the chain and is also made of high quality leather. The leather that is pulled through the CHANEL chain is sewn in one place and there is a small gap.
Counterpart to the closure of a CHANEL-Bag
The counterpart to the closure of a CHANEL-Bag is always fixed with two flat screws, which form a flat surface with the closure plate. CHANEL is on the left side of the closure plaque and PARIS is on the right side. These two words are evenly written and easy to read.
The classic CC clasp on the front
On the classic CHANEL clasp, as on the CHANEL CC signet itself, the left C is always above the right C in the lower area. In the upper area, the left C is below the right C. The classic CC clasp can be flat or curved. Some classic CC clasps have a kind of "stamped embossing" on one of the C. Its position and appearance vary depending on the year of manufacture. This "stamping" also indicates that the Bag bag was made in France. Classic CHANEL bags made in Italy completely lack this "embossing".
The CHANEL serial number
At CHANEL, the serial number and the corresponding authenticity card were introduced in 1984. The length of the serial numbers and their initial number vary depending on the year of production. From 2005 the authenticity card top right corner was provided with a gray/white circle.
The grainy calf (also Kaviar called) or fine lambskin.
This refers to the flaps with which the Bag can be closed. In a "single flap" there is only one outer flap to close the Bag. With a "double flap" there are 2 flaps, one inner and one outer.
