The Bag: CHANEL 2.55

Cosmopolitan (India) - - FASHION -

Year: 1955. Coco Chanel wanted her hands free (bal­anc­ing cham­pagne and canapés with a clutch is an­noy­ing), and that’s pretty much how the 2.55, with its shoul­der strap, came into be­ing, named af­ter its launch year. The quilted bag com­bined leather and me­tal, and was supple and light. It con­tained a se­cret pocket where, it is claimed, Coco hid her love let­ters. Circa 2011, the 2.55 bag is one of those celebrity, fash­ion week, and col­lec­tor reg­u­lars that’s re­ally im­pos­si­ble not to lust af­ter.
