Chanel ladies and fans will absolutely fall head over heels with its Reissue 2.55 Small Wallet. These leather gems are sure to make the waves in the fashion industry as the beloved and famous Chanel 2.55 now comes in the handy dandy form of wallets. Well, all bags have their own stories to tell and with each creation is a rich history that gives them their own unique personality.

The Chanel 2.55 bears its name due to the simple reason that it was originally launched in public in February of 1955. The front lock also features the Mademoiselle Lock (because the legendary Coco Chanel was never married) which is strikingly different from the classic double CC logo we’re all familiar with. Karl Lagerfeld, who is now the creative director behind the famous fashion house reissued the 2.55 in February 2005 in commemoration to the 50th anniversary of the original 2.55 personally designed by Coco herself.

A pure luxury on its own, the Chanel 2.55 is a luxury leather handbag/purse that changed the game and the course of the fashion industry. Fast forward to 2016, we know have the Reissue 2.55 but now in small wallets. It features aged calfskin and light gold metal materials with black and burgundy lining. So what do you think.

Amanda Bynes: 3 Super Cute Outfits with the Jumbo 2.55 Chanel

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

Sometimes, I get totally inspired by celebrity style! Rachel Bilson, Blake Lively, and Cheryl Cole are a few favorites. Today, I wanted to share 3 super-easy but super-cute outfits that Amanda Bynes wore with her gorgeous classic jumbo 2.55 classic Chanel bag.

I really liked these outfits. Aside from the Chanel, all of the clothing articles are readily-available essentials... like a white tank top, leggings, and stuff that you probably have in your closet. Still, the outfits are super flattering!

Let me give you an example -- along with some links for where to purchase... You know how your significant other always tells you that jeans and a t shirt is so sexy? Well, there’s definitely some truth to classic pieces with great fit: Leggings, white tank, ankle boots with buckles, long necklace, sunglasses, and a menswear-inspired watch.

Chanel 2.55 Double Flap: Caviar vs Lambskin

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

The Chanel 2.55 purse commonly comes in two types of leathers: caviar and lambskin. The retail cost for either is about the same. Here we’ll go over the differences between black lambskin vs. black caviar leather: how they age, maintenance, and look. We’ve taken two iconic Chanel bags and put them side to side.

The lambskin on the left is from 1995. The caviar on the right is from 2004.

In general, the caviar leather is much more sturdy than its lambskin counterpart. Although a few years ago, lambskin was more expensive than caviar due to its very smooth and soft finish. Which look do we prefer? Depending on who you ask, you’ll get a different answer!

The lambskin rates higher for being very luxurious looking. The gleam from the black lambskin is quite dramatic and striking. But, trust us when we say either purses are dangerously beautiful!

For a day to day purse, the caviar rates higher due to its amazing ability to withstand abuse. Black lambskin is not fragile and is relatively easy to maintain due to its dark color.

gorgeous bags

To store a 2.55 Chanel, one must keep some tissue paper or other soft clean material in the body of the purse and set it on its bottom in a dry place out of the sunlight. For lambskin, the chain should not rest too heavily on the bag, and a soft sheet of fabric should be placed between the flaps. All materials used for storage should not have color rub off.

The caviar bag’s leather does not need to be conditioned. Contrary to popular belief, lambskin does not require conditioning either. This information was given to us by a Chanel specialist at the Chanel boutique! The shiny patina that you see on many older Chanel, both lambskin and caviar, is actually produced by wearing the bag over time!

These bags age magnificently. The striking lambskin is 17 years old! With age, the puffy quilting on lambskin will most likely flatten somewhat, and some wrinkling may show when the bag is not filled. Although, the lambskin is more prone to scratches and scuffs, you can see that none of it is very significant given moderate care.

Caviar will maintain its puffy quilting throughout time if stored correctly. It’s also harder to scratch and scuff. This makes it more ideal for an everyday purse.

If needed, either bag may be sent to a Chanel store for a full restoration for less than $300. Please keep in mind, neither bags in the photos have had to be repaired. This speaks to the impeccable quality of Chanel!

The Chanel 2.55′s interior is just as well made as the outside. This means superb strong structure on either bag.

Hermes VS Chanel

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

Chanel or Hermes, I simply love bags. I simply can’t choose between them, if I could, I would get both of them. But for a bag addicted like me, I am very picky about hand bags.

Chanel’s bag were never that expensive as they are today. How much again? $4,500 PLUS for a classic flap bag? Two years ago they were half in price, if I knew this would happen, I had bought several more.

It is like Chanel is trying to upgrade their brand image and compete on the higher level with exclusive brands like Hermes and others. What is Hermes bag cost? Around $10,000?

Here is a tricky question; Image Chanel flap bag cost $10,000 and the Hermes Birking bag is also priced $10,000. Which bag would you prefer? Chanel or Hermes?
at our site replica hermes bags only $257,replica chanel bags only $187
You do not get these prices just like that, their quality should be questioned. When I went to the Chanel (the secret of Chanel 2.55) (the secret of Chanel 2.55) exhibition, they show how their bags are made. And apparently, most of the production time is being handmade or set-up together manually by an experienced handcraft. Chanel has also specialized machine that nowhere can be bought, because THEY MADE hard time copying them.

Hermes bag should not be any difference. I never went to their exhibition, but I am not surprised the process is about the same, which is hand-made.

On my handbag forum, several Chanel customers have been complaining about the quality of Chanel. One of them are the quality of the leather, some say that they look cheap, dull and non shiny. Others were complaining about the twist-lock back plate, that they are not equal.

When spending that much of money, the quality is important.

Mostly, we buy hand bags because of the feeling. Convince me, how would you feel differently when wearing Chanel comparing with your other $50,- hand bags? If you do not feel anything, then you probably are not a handbag lover.

How does Chanel hand bags make you feel and how Hermes hand bags made you feel are both very important factors. Hermes have been around for a longer time with higher prices and Chanel have just been rising.

The Secrets Of Chanel 2.55 Handbag

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

chanel-classic-bag-production-1

Attended at the exhibition in New York on the 57th Chanel Jewelry St, the Chanel 2.55 has a quite interesting story. Seats at the exhibition were limited and it was held between the 8th and 16th of May. The common question on everyone’s lips was: “What are the secrets of the Chanel 2.55 handbag?”.

The exhibition featured basically everything about the bag. From modern day production and design, to the bag’s background story. The exhibition featured a 70 inch flat screen television that was put on top to display how exactly the Chanel 2.55 was made. The steps are as follows:

Step One: Cutting
Step Two: Quilting
Step Three: Assembly
Step Four: Shaping
Step Five: Turning Out
Step Six: Chain
Step Seven: Packing

After viewing the birth process of the Chanel 2.55, it makes you anxious to purchase it. The exhibition centered a lot of hype and inspiration on the bag (and for good reason, too).

First, the cutting is carried out by special machines that were personally designed just for Chanel. This is just a piece of the pie, as to why the Chanel 2.55 is an awesome bag to have. More than 80% of the bag’s production time is composed of prep function. Prepping the bag actually involves around 180 stages.

Then a master craftsman puts all the components of the bag together. This can take up to ten hours, only on one bag. The bag is then sewn together inside out. Then it takes another craftsman to turn the bag back out. This takes a lot of skill, and is the main secret behind the Chanel 2.55.

The bag is then screwed together, with the hardware and grommets. Right before the finished product is being polished and prepping for tissue paper wrap, the handbag is finished off with the chain. With all these specifications, imagine how Coco Chanel herself must’ve designed and assembled the original Chanel 2.55 handbag.
The name 2.55 refers to the date that Coco Chanel had released the bag, February 1955. As the years comes by, the popularity of the Chanel 2.55 was vague and was re-introduced by Karl Lagerfeld on February 2005. That’s it got the name: Chanel 2.55 reissued.
