Not everyone loves Velvet. When Chanel introduced the first Classic Flap Bag in Velvet, it was not an instant-hit. I think it’s because Velvet is not as durable as leather, but it gives a different experience. If you like smooth and soft bags, then the Diorama Velvet Bag would be your choice.
Today, Velvet is becoming more popular. And this is also the first Diorama Bag in Velvet. Velvet gives the bag a brighter and shinier color. If you choose black, it’s hard to see. But the color of the bag is sharper if you choose shades like red or green.
Sometimes Velvet is cheaper than leather, but nowadays it’s not necessary so. The Diorama Velvet in small sized is priced at $3350 USD while the same bag in lambskin is priced at $3400 USD. The price difference is just $50 USD. In this case, the bag is not really cheaper.
So what do you think? Would you buy a Velvet Bag or a Lambskin Bag?
