Chanel Fall 2005 Classic 2.55 Limited Edition Handbag

As early as 1930, CoCo Chanel impugned all handbags without shoulder straps and began designing handbags for women that could be carried messenger style. In 1955, the over-the-shoulder style of handbag reached epic popularity amongst fans, when she instructed her leather designer, Albert Monnot, to attach a gold chain as strapping to the pocketbook. That first handbag, the 2.55, was subsequently named after it's date of conception. This limited edition model was reissued in 2005--5 decades after its debut, to celebrate the 2.55's 50th birthday. I can only hope I look so good at 50 . . .

Crafted in a black textured leather, this classic bag features seminal Chanel design--such as the quilted leather, gold chain shoulder straps, front flap, aged gold mademoiselle lock with logo engraving. Fully lined with maroon leather and stamped with CC logo, 2.55 & 2005 on the interior underside flap. Authenticity cards included. New with tags--never carried! Priced at $2350. SOLD
