Chanel Black Lambskin Small Classic Double Flap Bag Gold Hardware
This iconic bag is a piece of fashion history. Since its initial release in February 1955 its design has remained almost completely unchanged. Inspired by the original style, Karl Lagerfeld took over as artistic director for Chanel in 1983 and introduced an interlocking C closure on the front of the bag as well as a strap with leather interwoven through the handles. This bag is known today as the Classic Flap bag.
This particular bag was made in the original Paris, France, factory so it is engraved with the iconic seal on the front lock closure. Being a vintage Classic Flap the hardware is also plated in gold. A rare collectible you will be sure to treasure and pass down as a family heirloom, this bag is on every fashion collectors' 'must have' list. Created when quality control and craftsmanship was at its finest, this vintage bag is an extraordinary piece. As well as being a perceptible investment. Upon initial release in February 1955 the Chanel Classic Flap bag retailed for USD$220. Today this bag is priced at $9,820 in Australia which is more than a 4,000% price increase. A very fashionable investment indeed.
