Own a piece of Chanel history, a rare find for the collectors! This flap was from the first-ever collection of Reissue Flap, released in 2005 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the legendary 2.55 bag from 1955.
The collectible anniversary Reissue Flaps are stamped with ” 2.55 – 2005 ” marking on the inner burgundy flap, to indicate its identity.
The original 2.55 bag was first released in February 1955 by Coco Chanel. It was a revolutionary fashion accessory, and has been well adored by people around the world. Timeless classic
2.55 bag tells the stories of Mademoiselle Coco Chanel‘s fashion philosophy – sliding chain handle to free up women’s hands, double flap to avoid spilling and for more privacy, burgundy interior for easy finding the content and a total of 7 pockets for functionality.
A perfect size – Reissue 226 (28 cm) is slightly bigger than medium classic, roomier to carry more but still sleek enough for evening occasions.
The longer chain length on this flap is just right for crossbody, making it total 3 ways to carry.
- Distressed calfskin leather in grey.
- Ruthenium-tone hardware in antique finish.
- Double Mademoiselle chain handle.
- Double flap closure with Mademoiselle turn lock.
- Burgundy leather interior with “2.55 – 2005” stamp.
