    The only thing that ruins this gorgeous bag is the double C. That’s why the classic re-issue is sooo much nicer.

      Have to respectfully disagree, as they are two different types of bags. The cc’s are classic, distinctive and dressier; the reissue is more casual and the closure has been copied by so many people that it’s not immediately recognizable as Chanel (if that matters).

        What has ruin the love of double cc and interwoven chain for me is the counterfeit market. Where I live, you can buy this bag at the markets. It breaks my heart…

      The classic re-issue is much nicer because of the clasp (that’s how Coco Chanel designed it), but I like the leather interwoven chain on this one.
