Chanel Castle Rock Bag Old Version

Now you might wonder what’s the difference between the 2013 and 2016 versions? Let’s take a look and compare. We’ve previously featured the Castle Rock bag before. In vintage-style appealed to bag lovers back in 2013 that’s why it was made available in medium and large size. The 2013 version looks antiquated with the top handle and CC clasp making all the difference.

The 2016 version on the other looks ever polished and refined. It looks so fresh that one might think it came straight out of the Chanel’s fashion oven. It’s so hot and classy, one should not dare miss it especially the rich burgundy color contrasts well with the golden chain straps. The CC clasp looks more pronounced this time and oh, the quilting effect and the tiny shiny effect in the leather used made it more appealing and desirable.

CHANEL CITY ROCK BAG

Can’t afford the Chanel Classic Flap Bag? No worries, there are plenty of contemporary Chanel bags to choose from. In fact, there are so many styles that you don’t even know where to start.

There are bags that look similar to the Classic Flap Bag but much lower-priced (let’s do not say cheap, because its not cheap!). Like the CC Carey Flap Bag, we will do a review about that bag later on.

But today, the story is starring the Chanel City Rock Bag. Oh and did you know that the Chanel Castle Rock Bag exists?

READ: Chanel Castle Rock Bag.

But let’s get to the point, our friend Betsy went shopping the other day at Bergdorf Goodman. She wanted a seasonal Chanel Bag from the Spring Summer 2015 Collection and was interested in the Chanel CC Carey Flap Bag. But her interest soon faded away when she spotted the Chanel City Rock Bag from the Pre-Fall 2015 Collection.

You see, the Chanel City Rock Bag is everything but ordinary. The gorgeous chains, the beautiful quilt and the newest CC logo makes your heart beat faster.

Zoom-in on the CC logo and you will read ‘CHANEL’, ’31 RUE CAMBON’ and ‘Paris’. To make it more sophisticated, the center is featured with another CC on a round-shaped embellishment.

Listen to Betsy story:

It’s from the Spring/Summer 2015 collection called Chanel CC Carey Bag and is currently available (as of 7/5/2015, I almost bought it, but got a City Rock bag from Act 1 pre-fall 2015 instead) at Bergdorf Goodman in NYC for $3500-$3700 (medium/large size).

It’s a beautiful lambskin, and is somewhat durable, but can become damaged more easily than the regular caviar or calfskin or goatskin bags. It is leather inside, and has a beautiful silver chain and CC. It’s a very beautiful bag, but not for every day.

So I questioned her: Betsy why did you choose the City Rock Bag instead of the CC Carey Bag?

See image of the CC Carey Bag in the comment section here…

I decided on the City Rocks bag because it will be more durable for everyday.
The City Rocks bag is a little bigger than the medium sized Chanel CC Carey Bag but comparable in size to the large CC Carey. The City Rocks is goatskin instead of lambskin, which is the leather of the CC Carey bag.

The finish on the leather of City Rocks is more durable and can handle wear and tear and sustain scratches better than the CC Carey. The City Rocks and the large CC Carey are same in price, and the medium CC Carey is $200 less. The City Rocks bag is also part of the pre-fall 2015 collection, and the bag has never been done before and at this time is not going to be reproduced.

Therefore, I think between the durability and it being a brand new style, I went with the pre-fall collection. However, the CC Carey is very ladylike and beautiful and I still have my eye on it. I included a pic of the City Rocks bag.

What a great detailed answer. Betsy, thank you for sharing us your story. Congrats with your new purchase.
