A gift like no other, for Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel it represented femininity and simple elegance. The only fashion designer featured in Time magazine’s 100 most influential people of the 20th century, she redefined women’s fashion to be functional, casual, and modern, devoid of the restrictive silhouettes of corsets. From her famous tweed suits all the way to her handbags, the Camellia remained one of the House of Chanel’s most used iconography.
In this modern take of the Chanel Long Flap Wallet, the Camellia is meticulously recreated in the careful stitching and padding of the aged lambskin surface. The end result is a unique design that embodies Chanel’s spirit, avant-gardist yet timeless.
