There are many Chanel fans at my office so much so it becomes very difficult to ignore. Mine is a medium size caviar leather with silver hardware. I honestly do not think a lambskin will last long with me as it has been known to tear. Judging by the price of these things, I cannot afford a new lambskin bag every year. Nothing lost. According to the sales staff, the caviar will smoothen out after long usage to look like the lambskin.
I bought the small zip wallet in blue and red lambskin (Cruise Collection 2007) to complement it. Couldn’t afford the black crocodile large size “Biarritz" from the same season which was what I really wanted.
