Arguably the most famous Chanel bag of all time- Flap bag is a timeless icon. In February 1955, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel designed her most iconic handbag, the 2.55 flap. Not only did she create one of the most elegant fashion items ever, but also a piece that holds cultural value and has a significant history.
In 50’s the Chanel 2.55 Flap signified fashion liberation: it was the first bag made with a shoulder strap, freeing women from the constraints of the impractical clutch. The practicality including the adjustable chain strap and accessible back slip pocket draw women to the bag.
The Chanel 2.55 Flap also manifested two iconic Chanel handbag details: diamond-stitched quilting, and the deep burgundy hue of the interior lining. The straps on the first Flap Bags were entirely made of chain metal. When materials became scarce, however, Coco improvised by weaving leather into the chain to reduce the amount of metal needed.
The classic Double Flap Bag is a must-have for every Chanel collector. The bag has only grown in popularity especially ever since Karl Lagerfeld stepped in as Creative Director in 1983. Lagerfeld updated the bag by tweaking its silhouette and most notably the marker – the CC turnlock closure, replacing the Mademoiselle lock. Given their timeless design and exquisite craftsmanship, classic flaps make amazing investment pieces as they rarely cease to lose their value.
