Chanel 19

The Chanel 19 bag was the final bag designed by the late Karl Lagerfeld, who created it with current Chanel creative director Virginie Viard. Named 19 after the year it debuted, the Chanel 19 is a contemporary version of Chanel’s classic flap bags, updated with oversized diamond quilting, a trio of chunky chains for the strap, and a new version of the CC turnlock.
