There is a lot of things you need to consider when picking.
Should you pick Lambskin or Caviar?
Chanel bags lambskin is a very soft leather. When you stroke the Chanel bag, it feel very smooth and delightful. The lambskin will give you an extra touch in the Chanel bag, it feels like luxury. Which is good, because Chanel cost 6k, it better feel luxury.
The downside of lambskin is that it is very fragile. A lot girls have experience this after choosing lambskin leather, just in few days you will ending up with scratches and corners will start to wear off. But this really depend on how careful you are with your Chanel bag, nevertheless the scratches and wearing off will happen. It’s only the timing and is inevitable.
If you decide to wear your Chanel bag very often, then lambskin is not much of a good choose. Your Chanel bag will get abused much quicker than you can imagine, even if your intention was not abusing it. You will get hurt if you really love your bag.
But if you don’t care about having an abusive Chanel bag, because you are going to buy a new one anyway, then lambskin shouldn’t be a problem for you
How about Caviar?
Caviar is much more durable leather. You won’t get that much damage like the lambskin. Next time you are at a Chanel boutique try to scratch the lambskin, it is very easy to get that scratch on, but hard to get it off. But caviar is much harder, it is not easy to scratch it.
There is a downside, caviar don’t give you that luxury feeling, it is much harder. If you are going to wear your Chanel bag very often, then caviar should be the right choice.
But it all nails down to personal choices
Some girls love lambskin, even when they are going to wear it often. That’s oke, because at the end it all comes down that you have bought something you love. The one thing I hate is buying what I don’t like, ending up having that REGRET feeling. I think every girl have experience that before. Don’t just pick caviar for the sake of durability, if you ARE IN love with lambskin.
Chanel prices makes Caviar a must
Seeing the Chanel prices keep going up and up and up, most girls will pick the caviar leather for their Chanel bag. I don’t blame that for that, because I am too HEHE.
I used to buy lambskin too, because of it softness. I love lambskin, but it does not matter anymore. When I buy my new Chanel bag, I will probably pick the caviar version too. I have already some lambskin, but when you are paying $6k for a bag, you want one that can live longer and avoid scratches and that kind of stuff. Scratches hurt me more than the bag itself, I can’t imagine having a new Chanel bag in my room that is damages. I want them to be NEW forever, or as new as possible.
So which one do you pick regularly? Lambskin or Caviar?
