Embroidered Camellia Follies Medium Lambskin Leather Flap Bag
A Chanel Classic Flap Bag in supple lambskin leather. 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, Jumbo and Maxi. Lagerfeld's design—to which this particular bag belongs—features a leather-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 specific bag in smooth lambskin leather is adorned with beads arranged to resemble camellia flowers. Additionally, it showcases diamond quilting on the underside of its flap.
Overall: There is light allover scratching to the outer leather, with heavier scratching near the turnlock closure and on the sides. There is light scratching to the interior leather, as well as light scratching to the underside of the leather flap. There hardware remains bright and shiny with no visible wear.
Accessories: Includes dust bag, box.
