#16 Chanel East/West Flap

As I went through the closet, I found several Chanel East/West Flap in hiding.   These lovelies are from 2005 and 2006 — some of the best years of Chanel quality.

Such a great bag but its shoulder strap is too short or it’s better for a shorter petite person. I doubt if this is why Chanel discontinued the East/West Flap but I’m curious as to why it’s discontinued.

Isn’t it gorgeous?

The gold hardware is handbag length, not shoulder length and the gold CC is matte, not shiny as most vintage Chanels.

Any idea what the pattern is?  What do you think of the shape?
