Chanel 2005 Hardcase Bag

SG is surprised to find this bag at Bluefly after all these years. I purchased the "Chanel 2005" almost 10 years ago. This bag back in the days was Mr. Lagerfeld's ergonomic futuristic bag, which I lovingly called The Butt Bag. Look at the back, need I say more? To be fair, this bag is great as a pillow for air travel and settles nicely against the side of my leg.

For those gals interested this bag is available at Bluefly for $1240 and $1800 (for the black leather). I paid about $1600 back in the days, which was costly considered a flap bag costed around $1200.

    S.G, please consider removing logos on your images...quite distracting dear ;) visually that is...
    prefer the fabric instead of leather for this model.

  5. I immediately thought of airline travel, b/c these bags remind me of the seat trays that fold down . . . Very ergonomic bags!

  6. I vaguely remember when this bag came out. The cream one looks a little less butt-ish than the shinny one.

    I have this bag for sale - in black jersey/fabric!

    Never thought I'd find this online! The leather one looks pretty cool too.

    Sadly just not my style!

    If anyone's interested, let me know and I'll forward the information.
