What's not to love about this bag? The kilt, the chain and leather strap, the inter locking c's.This bag is a classic. Named after the day it was invented ,February 1955.This i believe is the ultimate 'it' bag. Think more 'timeless than trendy. There are two types of leather used caviar and lambskin.Caviar has a grainy texture, while lambskin is much softer to touch. The 2.55 also comes in tweed and a range of other fabrics.
I absolutely adore this bag, because of the history behind the entire detailing of the bag. To celebrate chanel's 50th anniversary ,the chanel 2.55 was re issued by Karl Largarfield. The new version has a turn clasp instead of the inter locking c's.
You know my Nigerian Fashionistas never fail to impress me with their taste in timeless chic bags.So for your viewing pleasure...
the re issue.
