A Chanel Flap Bag with a colorful patchwork design. The Flap Bag has a storied history: it was first debuted by Gabrielle “Coco??Chanel in the ’50s and then later re-envisioned by Karl Lagerfeld in the ’80s. In 2005, Lagerfeld rereleased Coco’s original 2.55 design as the Reissue (2.55 refers to the month and year—February 1955—of Coco’s original design).
The Flap Bag comes in many different styles. The most common materials are calfskin, lambskin, and caviar, though it is available in more exotic leathers such as lizard and ostrich. The most common sizes are Mini, Small, Medium, Large/Jumbo, and Maxi. Lagerfeld’s design—to which this particular bag belongs—features a woven chain strap and the always-popular Double-C turnlock closure, while Coco’s design has a chain (sans leather) strap and the iconic Mademoiselle lock.
This Chanel Flap Bag showcases an artful blend of leathers, fabrics, and tweeds, and is accentuated by silver hardware in the form of a CC turnlock and denim-woven chain strap.
Overall: This bag is in excellent condition, both inside and out, and it could easily be mistaken for a brand-new bag. While there are a handful of loose threads, none of the materials used in its construction show any conspicuous signs of wear.
Accessories: Includes authenticity card, dust bag, box.
