Perhaps some people’s dream in life is to have a Chanel 2.55, and maybe some people have to realize this dream many times. But I do not rule out that some people find the style is a bit of too traditional or outdated.
Speaking of myself, I am a child who has been admired Coco Chanel. So many years ago I have been already a loyal Channel supporter. Just looking at her history in the fashion industry and the impact of development has enough reason to make me love her lifetime. If you were trying to find some good reasons to fall in love with 2.55, I'll give you enough reasons for it.
Before the breakdown of these reasons, I would like to begin with the differences between 2.55 and Classic Flag which are very similar packages. I will start talking about their history: the 2.55 was born in February 1955, so named for the 2.55 bag. The car's leather and diamond rectangular line of the metal buckle is sign of 2.55. Karl Lagerfeld only then until the 1980s added the metal double-C logo buckles joining to Classic Flag Bag design.
In 2005, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the birth of 2.55, Karl Lagerfeld made a re-engraved version in accordance with the design of the package in 1955 by Coco Channel, named "2.55 Reissue". Strictly speaking, only this introduced package is the most original section 2.55. However, after many years of design changes, 2.55 now has the pure metal chain / metal chain woven leather, single cover / two-cover, square button (Mademoiselle Lock) / double C clasp. But then for the convenience, people like the original design of the package which is called a square lock 2.55 Reissue. A double deduction of the 2.55 package C is called Classic Flag.
Now, we can begin to figure out the reason of the first one. And this reason is also a recent steaming hot topic right. Because of the slump in the global economy, Chanel has a different tune, always having frequent price increasing in recent years. Every six months or a year, I hear price increasing of Chanel news, particularly their Classic Flag 2.55 and the two classic models. Often the increasing of each package can be even more than 500 U.S. dollars. If you have plans to buy a 2.55 or Classic Flag, you should not consider for a long time. It is likely the different price in your mind when you hesitate.
