DescriptionChanel Navy Blue Quilted Lambskin Leather Medium Double Flap Bag
Coco Chanel released the flap bag in February 1955 as the 2.55 bag and it has proven to be a handbag that stands the test of time. In 1983 when Karl Lagerfeld became Chanel's Creative Director he added the now iconic CC motif at the closure and woven chain strap to Coco Chanel's original design. This particular flap bag is done in navy blue lambskin leather with gold hardware. This bag features turnlock closure, adjustable shoulder strap, and rear exterior slip pocket. The interior is done in burgundy leather with two slip pockets flanking the main compartment, two slip pockets in the main compartment, and a small zip pocket on the interior side of the flap.
Dimensions: 9" Width x 6" Height x 2.5" Depth, 9"-16" Shoulder Drop
Approximate Retail Value: $4,000
