Under the creative direction of Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel have continued to re-invent their classic and iconic double flap bags. The enviable bag is crafted in supple lambskin leather, and detailed with fine stitching to give a quilted appearance.
The original bag, which was designed by Coco Chanel in 1929, had an all chain strap and a ‘mademoiselle’ lock instead of the double C logo twist lock that the more modern designs are known for today. Lagerfeld adjusted the design in the 1980’s to include the logo twist lock, as you can see on this Caviar version.
The chain is interwoven with leather and can be worn on either a single shoulder strap or doubled up. This timeless bag can fit seamlessly into any wardrobe, and be worn with any look. The Chanel Flap Bag is a true investment piece, and the caviar leather is one of the most sought after pieces.
