Hey Cosmopolitan -- can you please tell me the name/retail price of your bag on the right? (The one with the two clasps?)
I am totally in LUV with it, it's so ridiculously awesome~~~
Thanks! I purchased that bag in November 2005 for $2,125 from the Chanel boutique at Tyson's Galleria in Va. The leather is lambskin, and it is extremely soft and luxurious. It is so unstructured that when the stuffing is removed, it collapses sort of like a Balenciaga, and it hangs more like a hobo over the shoulder, as opposed to looking boxy. It's also pretty big and roomy, I'm guessing 14"x10"x5". I'm not sure of the name of the bag; Chanel doesn't name many of them. (The tag just says "Classic Bag with Flap," which is no help whatsoever.) When I bought it last fall, the SA told me it was a "limited edition." I've seen a few around this year, but not many.
Here are the final family pics now that the Grey Reissue is here.
