    Additional Information & Condition

    This absolute icon by Chanel may not be lacking in any bag collection. Named after month and year of its creation in 1955, the Chanel 2.55 was introduced onto the market with shoulder straps and is still designed in different version, like the Chanel Classic Double Flap and Chanel Reissue 2.55 bags. Characteristic features of this timeless classic is its rectangular shape and the small slip pocket with crescent-shaped top on the back. The closure of the bag cites the intertwined initials of great fashion designer Coco Chanel. The lambskin leather surface material is fitted with the typical Mattelassé herringbone pattern. The bag is being carried with two leather straps intertwined with gold-colored metal chains, which are connected through four eyelets at the top of the bag.


    The bag is in very good condition with slight traces of wear. The leather is occasionally rubbed and with tiny pressure marks.


    Gabrielle Bonheur Chasnel, also known as Coco Chanel, is one of the most influential fashion designers of the 20th century. Known for her avant-garde and seductive style during the 1920s, her trend setting designs paved the way for what fashion has become today. Coco Chanel became the first great couturière because she adopted a new androgynous style made out of jersey. By the early 20s, Chanel launched her signature cardigan jacket and the following year matched its success with her versatile, semi-formal ‘little black dress’. Both pieces quickly became a Chanel trademark and an enduring fashion standard. To the jacket, she added the luxury Chanel Classic Flapbag 2.55, named after its launch in February 1955. Coco Chanel died on 10 January 1971 at the Hotel Ritz in Paris where she had a residence for more than 30 years. Since 1983, Karl Lagerfeld has been creative director of Chanel's fashion house. His contemporary creations are marked by unconventionality, perfectionism and uniqueness. (nlu)
