Chanel Timeless Clutch

Tuesday, January 8, 2013



Chasing after each season’s most coveted ‘it’ bag is often an exciting, tricky venture~ you embark on a quest to secure yourself that handbag raved about by fashionistas across the globe and present in every fashion magazine.  Though acquiring the latest it bag has its plusses, it's sometimes safer and easier to simply stick to the classics, investing in a piece already proven to withstand the test of time.  Chanel has a knack for crafting timeless keepers, and one of my favorites is the half-moon timeless clutch.    


I'm often plagued by buyers regret, but not for this purchase!  I love the shape, size, and versatility of the clutch.  Ideally shaped (somewhat like a Chinese dumpling), it’s large enough to hold my everyday essentials, but small enough to fit comfortably in the palm of my hands.  When considering versatility, the timeless clutch complements everything in my closet~ from jeans till cocktail dresses.     

With all these plusses, it’s just a matter of picking colors and leather: (lambskin, caviar, patent).  Lambskin, thou softer and more feminine, scratches easily, and wouldn’t be suitable for everyday use.  Patent leather’s young, fun, and durable, but smudges, and isn’t ideal for something I’ll constantly hold.  With that in mind, I opted for a black, caviar, clutch with silver hardware.  The clutch is the epitome of all things Chanel~ simple, classy, and versatile.



However, lately, when I see Chanel, all that comes to mind are frequent price increases, so if your riding the fence, debating on whether or not you should get this bag, run to the store now before the next price increase.

  3. Hi!

    The timeless clutch is still available in all Chanel boutiques around the world. They always have black, however, there are also seasonal colors. It is also available in select Saks Fifth, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus stores with Chanel departments. In Los Angeles, there are Chanel boutiques in the Bloomingdales in Santa Ana, Saks Fifth and Neiman in Beverly Hills. Mine is from Neiman Marcus :)

    The style # is 00V A32342 Y01588
    94305

    A32342 : Style number, or prefix #
    Y01588 : Chanel style number
    94305 : Color code for black

    A is for fall in french, and 00V symbolizes a continuous line.

    Hope this information helps!

    1. Hi Aileen! I purchased mine at a Chanel Boutique in Neiman Marcus. If I remember correctly, prices haven't increased yet, so it should still be $1,900 plus tax. Let me know if you have any other questions! Best of luck shopping!

  7. Absolutely gorgeous! I'm just wondering if you happen to know if the lambskin type clutch has a red interior and the caviar comes with black interior? Just like the classic flap bags? Thanks Nichole!

    1. Hi Isz! Apologies for the late reply. The timeless clutch is not discontinued here in the US. I just went to take a look the other day. There's a price increase from the original 1900 however. It's currently $2,400 as of August 2014. I'm sorry you had such a bad experience! You should come buy it in the US. Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help!

    1. Hi Chanel Clutch! You can purchase the clutch at any Chanel Boutique! However, I suggest going to Europe if you want a better price. Please feel free to email me your location and I can help you find a boutique.
