ckparis and vintage chanel 2.55
how are you all doing?
in febuary 1955, coco chanel introduced the 2.55 bag.
the 2.55 has become a classic staple in the house of chanel.
coco was said to have included the inside pocket with a zipper to store love letters
and the outside pocket to be used for money.
the 2.55 has a double flap. the inside flap is embossed with double cc's
and closes with a snap. the outside flap closes with a turn lock clasp with cc's.
my vintage 2.55 is dark navy blue and was made in france.
the serial numbers place the bag from the very early 80's.
it's just mussed up enough not to look pristine.
see you on the astral plane.
