A little history
The Chanel 2.55, the most recognizable of the flap-top Chanel Classic Bags, bears the date February 1955 in its initials. As was traditional for Coco Chanel, a name that was short and to the point. However, the notion for this bag began much earlier, even in the 1930s, and was inspired by Mademoiselle Coco’s vision of stylish, understated, and above all comfortable clothes for a strong, independent woman. And the 2.55 was conceptualized based on this very idea: a practical bag for an independent and energetic lady that is elegant but most importantly comfortable and leaves your hands free.
The First Flap on a Chanel Classic Bag
The first Chanel 2.55 initially appeared in February 1955. The surface was constructed of reversed leather and stitched in the traditional diamond pattern. The earliest models were in jersey, followed by those in soft lambskin. The key chain used by the keepers of the orphanage where Coco Chanel was raised served as inspiration for the chain shoulder strap. However, the lining of the bag, which is burgundy like the uniforms worn by the kids who lived there, also reflects memories of the orphanage.
