The classic Chanel double flap bag is a structured bag that comes in an array of finishes including lambskin, caviar leather, tweed, fabric and more.
The classic double flap is the most well-known handbag in the world. And, for good reason. Its design elevates almost any outfit for any occasion. The craftmanship is top-notch, and the bags age gracefully and beautifully.
The leather and chain shoulder straps can be worn long, or doubled to be worn short. The bag has 1 open exterior pocket, 3 open interior pockets, 1 zippered pocket under the top flap, and 1 zippered interior pocket. The hardware most commonly comes in silver or gold.
To the general public, the classic double flap is also referred to as the 2.55 bag. However, to those who are very well-versed with Chanel, they know that 2.55 more accurately describes Chanel reissue bags.
