Why It’s An Investment: The Chanel Classic flap bag was introduced in the 1980s when Karl Lagerfeld joined Chanel as the creative director. It comes in four sizes – Small (9”), Medium (10”), Jumbo (12”) and Maxi (13”) – as well as in a Mini and Wallet on a Chain. It is the most recognized handbag that Chanel produces, and is a piece that only goes up in price with every year.
Characteristics: This mini classic rectangular flap is crafted of diamond quilted luxurious caviar leather in a deep purple. The bag features a long ruthenium chain link leather threaded shoulder strap and frontal flap with a ruthenium Chanel CC Mademoiselle turn lock. The flap opens to an interior of matching smooth leather with a zipper and patch pocket.
