Even if you don’t count yourself among Chanel‘s fans, you have to admit that there are a few things Karl & Co. do very well. Chiefly among them are the gorgeously detailed and often-exotic flap bags that the company releases every season in its Outstanding Pieces capsule collection, which is exactly what it sounds like – the best of the best from one of the world’s biggest handbag brands. Close-up pictures of all four of Fall 2010’s outstanding bags, which use alligator, stingray and python skins, after the jump.

    I am a big fan of Chanel 1 and 3. Those purses are outstanding! I think the new direction chanel is going in is fantastic, but I like that they are doing so with their signature flap bags. Unfortunately I don’t think there is any need for me to figure out how much they cost, it would just be too painful!

    You know how you get sick of bags the more you see them, in different variations over the years? I never feel that way about the Chanel flap. It’s gorgeous, iconic, classic, edgy and lovely in every which way. Absolutely adore #1.

    This bag is really too beautiful, but expensive. In my shop there, but Chanel is so cheap, because he is perfect. She and genuine are exactly alike. You do not see what she does not. Yes, she is the legendary Super A +++++¡£ She makes you absolutely satisfied. You’ll like her. My shop: http://www.handbagbay.com

    I have no words the beauty is beyond what chanel has done before and as always mr lagerfeld just proves how fantastic he is. coco would be thrilled , I’m happy to see we will be able to buy something nice as thsis season if not for Hermes channel and a few fendis it would be rather boring.

    i wonder why they alternate between the classic cc closure and just this regular boring turn-lock one?
