The 2.55 Bag
There's something about that rectangle of quilted leather that causes a girls heart to race. The threaded chain, the ultra soft leather and the unmistakable two "C's" give those who behold it butterflies. Traditional colours like beige, brown, black and navy that Coco Chanel used in her start up line, has since accelerated into a large spectra of colours. The 2.55 bag is now available in just about any colour under the sun, and defines the nirvana of luxury. A limited-edition was brought out this year, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Chanel 2.55 bag. For the anniversary, Karl Lagerfeld designed a striking, red model, that's been available in 400 examples. The name of the bag, 2.55 takes us back to when Coco Chanel first released the bag on the market - February 1955. 50 years later, this is the ultimate choice for fashion victims worldwide, and in our opinion, one of the most stylish hand bags ever designed.
