About this style

Popular in the 1980s and 1990s, this bag has been nicknamed the "Diana Flap Bag" for Princess Diana of Wales' fondness for this Chanel model. The single flap Chanel bag with smooth leather trim has long been discontinued but remains highly coveted for its signature but simple styling. Like all of Chanel's iconic bags, the design of the Diana Flap Bag is based on her childhood experiences. Recognizing the value of carrying a bag without use of her hands, Coco added shoulder straps so that her hands remained free. The straps are reminiscent of the belts that the nuns at the school wore. The quilting believed to be based on the materials worn by the stable boys where Coco rode horses as a girl. The back pocket was designed as a secret compartment for love letters. Combining all these memories enabled Coco Chanel to create one of the most famous handbag styes of all time.
