THE INS AND OUTS OF CHANEL CHAIN HANDLES
Inspired by the chain strap on the bag of a soldier, Chanel used many different chains on their bags in the past years. The most popular and characteristic are the leather entwined chains. There's a rumour saying these kind of chains were used by the nuns as key ring in the orphanage where Coco Chanel grew up.
CHANEL REISSUE VS CHANEL TIMELESS CLASSIC FLAP BAG, THE FACTS:
Mademoiselle Coco Chanel designed the 2.55 bag in February 1955, this iconic bag owns her name to the month and year of its birth. Coco deliberately designed it with a long chain to wear her bag on her shoulder, so she would have her hands free to enjoy a cigarette, hors d’oeuvres and a glass of wine at a party. A woman after our own hearts!
The most popular Chanel bag is the Timeless Classic Flap Bag, without a doubt. This bag often incorrectly is referred to as the 2.55 bag. We will try to explain this matter.
The Chanel Flap Bag is nowadays produced in two classic styles: the Reissue 2.55 and the Timeless Classic Flap Bag. Through the years many varieties of the Flap Bag have been introduced, which was very confusing. In 1983 Karl Lagerfeld managed to bring this number down and since then only two kinds of Classic Flap Bags are sold, these are:
- Chanel Reissue 2.55
- Chanel Timeless Classic Flap Bag
