We are lucky enough to have acquired two iconic maxi flap bags that were featured on Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel 1993 runway and perfectly embody the collection’s ethos: a Tweed & Faux Fur Maxi Flap and a Crushed Velvet Whipstitch Maxi Flap. two classic styles embellished with details that are anything but ordinary.
The Go Around
Chanel is best known for its timeless designs and superior craftsmanship. Throughout the years Chanel has changed small details to evolve with the times, but for the most part, the brand has stayed consistent in terms of quality and construction of materials. Many of Chanel’s pieces take thousands of hours to create, making sure each bag is perfect from the smallest stitch to the largest piece of leather. This acute attention to detail helps ensure the longevity of each bag. For this reason, vintage Chanel bags are just as popular, if not more popular than the brand’s current season bags—and often why they can be hard to tell apart. Thankfully, dating a Chanel bag is actually quite simple, and a skill that will surely come in handy when hunting for the perfect bag for yourself.
Chanel’s classic Flap Bag is undeniably one of fashion’s most important accessories. Case in point: Flap Bags are all over Instagram right now! But before it became the trendy bag it is today, it was actually quite revolutionary.
