Welcome to this week’s edition of Bags of the Week, where we carefully select three bags and place them under the spotlight. This week we take a look at bargains under $5,000 and have a real treat in store for you with one Hermes and two Chanel bags currently available for this price. The bags in question are a Hermes Kelly Long Wallet/Clutch Paon PHW, a Chanel Mini Classic Flap in Red, and a Chanel Quilted Bowler Bag, also in red. Each of these bags have come to us for a very reasonable price and they are likely to sell very quickly!
Hermes Kelly Long Wallet/Clutch Paon PHW
First up is this wonderful Hermes Kelly Long Wallet/Clutch in a striking paon color. The bag is identical to its larger sister, the traditional Kelly bag, in almost every way, except for the semi-circular handle. When looking at the bag head-on, however, the resemblance is immediately evident. Crafted from Epsom leather, this long wallet/clutch features a beautiful pattern on the front and is soft to the touch. The paon color is a rare and unique color which works wonderfully with the grain on the Epsom leather to create a unique and wonderful style.
As you would expect from Hermes, the craftsmanship throughout the long wallet/clutch is exquisite. The fine grain on the material is dyed to perfection while the palladium hardware and stitching ensure you know you are in possession of one of the world’s most sought after bag. The official stamp is found directly above the lock and just underneath the handstitched entrance to the surprisingly roomy interior. These fine details make this bag a perfect companion to any outfit, regardless of time of year or occasion.
Measuring 8” x 4.5”, the long wallet/clutch is the ideal size to hold all essentials for an evening out such as keys, mobile phone, purse, and even makeup kit. Depending on ow much you wish to fit inside the clutch and whether you require easy access to the interior you can fully close the clasp and wear it as a long wallet or leave it open and maintain the elegant appearance of the clutch. The bag comes with a sleeper, Hermes box, and ribbon and is in pristine condition, meaning it is in the same condition as when it left the factory. Available for $3,695, this is truly a one-time opportunity to own such a stunning long wallet/clutch.
Chanel Mini Classic Flap Red
Our next bargain bag under $5,000 is this wonderful Chanel Mini Classic Flap in Red. Featuring the famed quilted design in a striking red color, this flap bag is a must have for any Chanel enthusiast. The lambskin material is extremely soft to the touch and takes on the versatile red color perfectly, making it shimmer under any light. On the front of the bag you can see the classic interlocking double Cs lock along with the diamond shaped quilted pattern and a single flap.
The pattern is found throughout the bag, even on the side flaps and the back. The sides of the bag are soft and flexible, allowing you to comfortably fit more inside without changing or ruining the shape of the bag. On the back there is an easy access pocket, perfect for keeping important document, credit cards, or anything else you might want to reach for quickly without having the bother of opening the flap section of the bag. The chain handle made from silver is the perfect complement to the red design and is extendable for extra comfort and a range of hanging options when wearing the bag on the shoulder.
Measuring 8” x 5.5” x 2.75”, this Chanel Mini Classic Flap is the ideal size for carrying essentials on an evening out or during a shopping trip.

Chanel Red Quilted Bowler Bag
Finally for this week we have a unique and stylish Chanel Red Quilted Bowler Bag. This is one of the most prestigious bags in the world and can be extremely difficult to find. Crafted from a soft, yet durable, lambskin leather, this bowler bag features both the famed diamond pattern quilted design and a unique element in the silver chain accessory around the edges of the bag as well as on the handle. This striking design immediately catches the eye and admiration of all who are in proximity of it.
Unlike classic flap bags where the interlocking double C’s are found on the front flap where the lock is located, this bowler bag features a zip with a trendy interlocking Chanel logo chain attached to the zipper. The zip makes gaining access to the spacious interior simple and with a large open space inside, it is possible to store and carry much more than simply the essentials in this bag. The back part of the interior also features a zippered pocked for valuables and separation from the main section of the bag.
Measuring 12.5” x 9” x 6.5”, this bag is extremely spacious and designed as a convenient day bag, although the stylish and fashionable appearance also makes it perfect as an evening bag. The wonderful red color found on the bag is sure to turn heads wherever you go, especially as the silver accessories catch the light and reflect. Acquired in very good condition, meaning it may show small signs of wear, this Chanel Bowler Bag comes equipped with an authenticity card, dust bag, care booklet, and original tag. It is currently available for $3,295 and expected to go very soon!
