Fashion School Lessons 1 : A 2.55 Chanel Bag History

Sin título #275
Hi Dolls! I am incredibly curious and I love learning new stuff so I decided to bring my fashion research lessons to you in a fun way! 
Let's get started!

Sin título #276

They say, that when you say Chanel, you have already said enough, but we are going to learn a bit about a bag that has stolen many fashionista's hearts: The 2.55
2.55 was for sure inspired by Coco's time in the orphanage, from the interior colour to the chains and the quilted leather.
We all know Coco was nothing but iconic, but she was also particularly romantic. The hidden pocket was designed for her to keep her love letters, which were always with her. Maybe we could think of those as a lucky charm to carry around.
Karl Lagerfeld, released in 2005 another  edition of the 2.55 for the 50th anniversary, being as loyal as he could to Coco's idea of the so called "it bag".
