I have lusted after the Chanel 2.55 bag for years now (named after the year month and year it was created, February 1955), with my attention turning to the Fall 2005 re-release which features a modern looking twist clasp instead of the double C clasp with a turn dial.
And it seems… ’tis the season for the 2005 re-release Chanel 2.55’s. Sienna Miller, Jessica Alba and Rachel Bilson have shown their love for the bag in the last week or so, snapped from London to LA with one under their arms in patent black, bronze metallic, and classic white respectively.
Would you love to own one? Well pop down to your local Chanel boutique with a new credit card. Keep in mind that the cambon leather 2.55 bags are more durable (and cheaper) than the lambskin leather bags. If you’ve got money to burn, check out Claudia Schiffer and Mischa Barton’s Chanel 2.55 bag’s.
