About

This gorgeous Chanel Shoulder bag is stunning with its modern futuristic pattern and circular shape. This high contrast round black and white lambskin leather handbag is from Chanel's 2003 - 2004 collection. You can wear this handbag as a shoulder bag or carry it as a clutch! The bag measures just under 9” in diameter and the shoulder strap has a 13.5” drop. There is a side inside pocket and the bag closes with a black and white CC logo kiss lock clasp. This bag was lovingly cared for, has the Chanel serial number 8028965, and we think it is truly spectacular. We are showing a photo of actress Jamie King with the same style Chanel bag at the Paley Center.

About Karl Lagerfeld (Designer)

More than a mere tastemaker, Karl Lagerfeld devoted himself to the continual pursuit of chic. “My life and my job,” the designer once said, “is to forget myself.” An outsize, instantly recognizable personality — his ponytail powdered like an 18th-century viscount, his eyes perpetually shielded by dark glasses, wearing fistfuls of chunky silver jewels — Lagerfeld was, above all, an avatar of style. During his five-decade career designing for Chanel, Fendi, Chloé and many others, Lagerfeld was a quintessential chameleon, ever evolving to embody the times.


Born in Hamburg (in 1933, ’35, or ’38 by varying accounts), Karl Lagerfeld packed his bags for Paris in 1954. His design for a coat won him the International Wool Secretariat and landed him a job with the celebrated couturier Pierre Balmain. He went on to become the designer of Jean Patou, eventually realizing that his seemingly endless ideas could fuel a career as a designer-for-hire. As such, Lagerfeld lent his vision to everyone from Loewe and Max Mara to Krizia and Charles Jourdan, nimbly moving among a diverse range of styles. It was an unprecedented way of working in the days when freelance was still a dirty word. During the late ’60s and ’70s, he refashioned Chloé to reflect the free spirit of the day and, beginning in 1965, joined forces with the Fendi family, taking it from sleepy furrier to fashion’s haute-est stratum.


Because of his track record for reviving and reimagining brands that had grown stagnant, in 1984 Lagerfeld was handed the reins at Chanel, which had been gathering dust since its founder’s heyday. From his first collection, Lagerfeld injected the venerable house with a frisson of modernity. He riffed on its iconography — tweed skirt suits, pearls, camellias — accenting a lexicon of Chanel-isms with tastes of the moment. Despite producing eight collections a year for Chanel, as well as four to five for Fendi, Lagerfeld never faltered in proposing new ideas each time he put pencil to paper. Lagerfeld’s collections for Chanel, in particular, displayed his knack for synthesizing old and new, high and low. From Watteau (Spring/Summer 1985 couture) and Serge Roche (Spring/Summer 1990 ready-to-wear) to hip-hop fly girls (Fall/Winter 1991 ready-to-wear), surfers (Spring/Summer 2003 ready-to-wear) and ancient Egypt (Pre-Fall 2019), Lagerfeld used each season’s inspiration to conceive Chanel’s signatures anew.


Although he was on a ceaseless hunt for novelty, Lagerfeld delved into the past with equal aplomb. An avid scholar of aesthetics, Lagerfeld collected everything from Old Master paintings to Belperron jewelry to Memphis furniture, amassing collections that rivaled those of the finest museums. 


In later years, the designer set his sights firmly on the here and now. In 2008, he commissioned Zaha Hadid to design the Chanel Mobile Art Pavillion, a sleekly futuristic structure that traveled the world displaying artworks inspired by the brand’s iconic quilted handbag. That same year, he moved into a new Paris apartment that echoed Hadid’s architecture: all glass, metal and cutting-edge tech. Here, Lagerfeld’s decor strictly featured works of contemporary design, including an Amanda Levete sofa and Barber & Osgerby tables from Established & Sons. It’s fitting that Lagerfeld’s lifetime of collecting culminated with a temple of modernity. With all the many personas he inhabited over the years, the one constant was his desire to transmit the pulse of his time and place.
