The Chanel Reissue Chanel 2.55 Bag is more than just a beautiful IT bag that’s been the height of popularity in the fashion world for years, it’s also a piece of history. You see, every aspect of this divine accessory has a story to tell from the founder of Chanel, Gabrielle Coco. It was given the name ‘2.55’ because it was originally issued in February of the year 1955. On the interior you would find a burgundy colored lining, which represented the color of the uniforms she wore at the convent in which she grew up in. On the inside you’ll also find a handy zippered compartment, which is said to hold her love notes. Her extra cash was held in the outer flap on the back of this handbag, and the beauteous, dazzling front lock was named after the never-married Coco, referred to as the ‘Mademoiselle lock’. Last but not least, the handy shoulder strap design was made to recreate the chains Coco would see on the caretakers of the orphanage when she was little.

The reissue was introduced in February 2005 by Karl Lagerfield, in commemoration of the 50th anniversary from which the original Chanel bag was released. It looks exactly the same and is now available in four different sizes: Chanel Reissue 2.55 Bag Size 224, Chanel Reissue 2.55 Bag Size 225, Chanel Reissue 2.55 Bag Size 226, and the Chanel Reissue 2.55 Bag Size 227- all absolutely fabulous pieces that would look lovely on any lady’s shoulder.

  1. Hi,
    I wonder if some of you can give me a clue. I just bought a second Extra Mini Classic Flap in a trusted reseller in my city. The condition of the bag is excellent. I’ve compared the CC logo, leather and the chain with my Jumbo bag. It seems quite legit, however it has no hologram/serial number. I’ve watched unboxing videos in the youtube, but still I can’t find where the hologram should located in the Extra Mini. Can you please help me? Thank you

    Reply
    • The hologram sticker can be found inside, but that piece can easily fall off. It happens a lot of times. I guess it has fallen off especially when it’s pre-owned.
