Metallic Alligator Classic 2.55 Flap Bag

When Chanel announced that it was reissuing its iconic 2.55 bag, I was rather ambivalent. Sure, it's elegant and timeless, but the quilted leather felt a tad too matronly for my taste. I was immune to the frenzy infecting my fellow handbag lovers. That is, until I saw this:

Holy. Mother. Of. God. I actually gasped when I saw this picture. In metallic alligator, the classic 2.55 is transformed into the height of sexiness. Paired with the matching Dorseys, it makes a traffic-stopping combo. To order, call (800) 550-0005, and be ready to hand over an arm and a leg.

    Wow! That is certainly a billion times better than the grandma bags they've been putting out.

    I agree. This one is so much better than the quilted leather one.

    Does anyone else have the Chanel website problem where you click on a link and the whole site disappears? Or is it just me? I went there to find out how much this one costs...

    How much?? If it's real alligator/croc, it's got to be $10K at least!
