    Chanel Metallic Gold & Red Brocade Medium Double Flap Bag with Brass Hardware
    Excellent to Pristine Condition
    10" Width x 6" Height x 2.5" Depth
    Few bags have stood the test of time as well as Chanel's Flap Bag. Originally introduced in February 1955 as the 2.55 bag it has been produced with slight variations since then. When Karl Lagerfeld became the brand's creative director in 1983 he created what is now known as the classic flap, a take on Coco Chanel's 2.55 bag by adding the CC logo at the turnlock closure and interweaving leather into the chain strap. This flap bag offers the classic medium shape with a lady like brocade exterior. This bag is incredibly special and eye catching. The brass hardware accents the shine in the exterior fabric perfectly. The exterior features one slip pocket at the back of the bag. The interior is done in burgundy leather and contains two slip pockets surrounding the main compartment which contains two utility pockets.

    This bag is in Excellent to Pristine Condition. There is light scratching to the hardware. There is one slip pocket to the front exterior beneath the flap. This bag includes a Chanel dustbag, care card, and an authenticity card.
