DescriptionChanel Metallic Purple Quilted Lambskin Leather Jumbo Double Flap Bag with Matte Silver Hardware
12" Width x 8" Height x 3" Depth
Few handbags have stood the test of time quite like 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 particular classic flap bag will add a nice note of opulent color to your wardrobe. Done in a metallic purple lambskin leather, this bag features Chanel's signature diamond quilting and matte silver hardware. Additionally this bag features CC turnlock closure, chain link shoulder straps which can be worn single or doubled, and a rear exterior slip pocket. Underneath the flap, there is a zip pocket and a second flap with a snap closure that opens to reveal a metallic purple leather interior with two adjacent slip pockets, and a slip pocket in front.
This bag is in Excellent Condition. There is light scratching to the hardware, a slight indent in the leather beneath the first flap, and some light creasing to the interior leather. There are a few light scuffs to the second flap. This bag includes a Chanel dustbag, care card, and an authenticity card.
