Discontinued Bag #2 Chanel Mini 2.55 Classic Flap Bag
One of the most regretful things in life are the things that are not here right now, but you’ve desired for a long time. The desire might fade a away, but the taste of it will always come back from time to time. When Chanel have decided to stop the production of the Chanel mini 2.55 classic flap bag, it was really a sad thing.
But the good thing is that from time to time, the Chanel Mini 2.55 Classic Flap Bag and I will sometimes meet again. The bag is not lost at all, they are still being sold on the internet and pre-owned, but in high demand. Some consignment stores will put you in a long waiting list.
The 2.55 classic flap bag have been introduced since February 1955. This one is made from lambskin and is a single flap with a double C turnstile lock . A single chain strap can be worn either on your shoulder or in cross body. The latest price I had encounter was around $2,500 USD. This bag is originally made in 1989 to 1991. Talking about vintage huh?
