Chanel Reissue 2.55 Wallets
If anything, we are all about them basics – the primitive and exquisite form of our most beloved designs, which are brought to life by virtue of reissues!
Last year, Chanel celebrated its Métiers D’Art show, which honors the glory and craftsmanship of its partners, which make mass production of their top-selling products possible. As part of this joyous event, a reissue of the famous Chanel 2.55 has been made…in the form of wallets!
A little backstory about the illustrious history of the Chanel 2.55, though – the bags were named such because they were issued on February 1955. It had to undergo a series of tests for quality control – a process that has been unchanged by Karl Lagerfeld, ‘til this day. Characteristics unique to the product, such as its material, color, hardware and stitching are carefully assessed so as to ensure resistance from wear and tear.
From the collection, two reissues are about to make waves: the aged calfskin zipped wallet, and the card holder. Both of these leather babies bear the Mademoiselle lock, which is suitably named by Coco Chanel herself, as she basked in the glory of being a single woman until her death.
