When studying the Chanel 2.55 Reissue vs. the Classic Flap bag, it’s easy to note the differences. The leather conveys the impression of a well-worn and beloved original, the shoulder strap is made like the original all-metal 2.55 chain, and the Mademoiselle lock is featured. In addition, the Chanel 2.55 Reissue is always a double-flap bag.
The lock on the Reissue is actually the original lock called the Mademoiselle Lock as Ms Coco Chanel never married, the ‘CC’ lock was introduced to the Classic Flap Bags only in the 1980s by Karl Lagerfeld. The 2.55 in its name refers to the first release of the 2.55 bag in February of 1955. In February 2005, Karl Lagerfeld re-made the 2.55 – exactly as Coco Chanel had made in 1955, in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the 2.55. It came to be known as the Reissue.
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. Given their timeless design and exquisite craftsmanship, classic flaps make amazing investment pieces as they rarely cease to lose their value.
Today, both the Chanel Classic Flap and the Chanel 2.55 Reissue bags are available to complete your every ensemble. Each features the innovation and meticulous quality that made the original so beloved by fashionable women worldwide.
