Chanel classic models
Chanel created hundreds of bags. Some became must-haves and will always be legendary items.
Mythical purse created by Coco Chanel in February 1955 - thus the name - was adopted par famous people and fashionistas right from the beginning. Padded and with a square clasp,it is smart and practical. When she created it, Mademoiselle Chanel was indeed tired of clutches, decided to add a chain to hers and so be able to hold it on her shoulder.
The galmourous detail: a secret pocket at the back of the bag and another one for lipstick inside!
The Timeless Classic
The 2-55 interpreted by Karl Lagerfeld has a different clasp with the Chanel logo, the famous double Cs. The chain also is different, with a leather strap. Every year, Chanel introduces new models for the Timeless Classic, more modern and colourful.
Both 2-55 and Timeless Classic can be found in different sizes, from very small to jumbo.
The Coco Cabas
A large bag created for Kate Moss became an it-bag very quickly. Unfortunately, Chanel decided, in spite of its success, to stop the production.
