IMG-20180405-WA0001.gif IMG-20180406-WA0000.gif hi fellow chanel lovers, I found this stunning rect mini in gold calfskin with ghw. The leather is laminated in a sheet of clear plastic - can you see the surface of the bag? It feels like patent leather to the touch and is waterproof. I try to search for photos on the internet but couldn't find the name for such make and care instructions for the bag. Any input from fellow purseforummers?

I also have this bag in black. I treat it like patent leather ie keep it in a cool place. I try not to bang it against things in case the so black hardware is prone to chipping.

Beautiful bag! I have the exact bag in black. On the Chanel website, they are calling it "Patent Metallic Crumpled Calfskin".

I can't find any care instructions for this bag either but I've been wiping it down with a dry cloth if it gets wet. I don't use anything else on it.
Thanks for your info. Finally found a name for it. Haven't seen anything like that before. It looks like a clear sheet of plastic laminated on top - I am worrying of it cracking over time. So its patent.

Thank you for this post! I purchased I WOC in a similar material in Paris last week and can't find my exact bag online either. The SA explained it to me as PVC over Calfskin, but I doesn't feel like plastic/pvc to me, so I was confused. I saw online that they were calling similar bags "patent crumpled calfskin" and that made more sense to me, but I'm still totally confused as to what exactly I bought and how to take care of it. It feels and looks like patent leather to me. Thankful for this thread to see I'm not the only one.

I was told to treat it like patent leather. My piece is silver. Yikes!

Can you post more picture of the bag? how it look on you? I am trying to decide whether or not to ask my hubby to get it during his business trip without having the chance to try it on. And i tried to search on the forum and instagram only picture of the bag no mod shot at all. Thanks a lot
