Classic. Timeless. Elegance. Gorgeous. Stunning. Iconic.

The Standard.

Words all synonymous with the House of Chanel.

Chanel bags are THE standard in designer bags. The bags not only retains their original value, many often increase in value. Chanel bags are well designed classics. With proper care and storage, these bags will last a lifetime. The most iconic--and coveted--Chanel bag is the 2.55, named after the date of it's launch (February 1955) when Mademoiselle Chanel made her big comeback after World War II. This listing is for the 2.55 bag. Ms. Chanel drew inspiration for the bag's quilting from jockeys’ riding coats, the stained-glass windows of the abbey at Aubazine, as well as from cushions in her own Paris apartment. Ms. Chanel also wanted modern women to have freedom from always carrying their bags with their hands and thus the chain strap. The chain strap is said to been influenced by the caretakers at the convent where Mademoiselle Chanel grew up. The bag has an exterior back pocket, especially handy for quick access to money, tickets or a subway/tube pass. The interior of the bag features two pockets (one zippered, one not) one of which is rumored to be a secret compartment where Gabrielle Chanel kept her love letters.

This bag is a beautiful olive green suede. What I especially love is that the hardware is silver. Most of the Chanel bags offered for resale have gold hardware so it makes this bag that more extra special. The bag comes with its original authenticity card.


The House of Chanel was founded by Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel. Ms. Chanel never married (thus the Mademoiselle reference in Chanel--perfume, bags--and not Madame). Ms. Chanel remained head designer until her death in 1971. The House of Chanel has given the world iconic pieces (just a few: Chanel N° 5 perfume, the Chanel suit, the Chanel bag with gold chain strap) that are not only a part of fashion history, they are living, flourishing, fashion must-haves right now.

There is only one House of Chanel.

History/Backstory: I purchased this bag while in Virginia.

Condition: Very Good to Excellent. The bag is in overall FANTASTIC condition. No stains. The interior is clean. I rated it like this because of two teeny flaws noted in Photo 5. The left pic shows a small place on the back right corner of the bag where there is suede loss. I took the bag to Chanel in New York and unfortunately they could not repair it. However, other professional leather/suede specialists skilled in designer bag repairs may be able to do so. (This came straight from a Chanel specialist who has been with the company for over twenty years.) I think a chic and cheap fix is to find the exact color of the bag in a marker and just color in the white. It's a great trick that works. I've done it on my bags--and shoes. I will leave the decision with the new owner. The second pic shows a place in the chain strap where the suede has come a bit undone. Again, not a big issue. Fixable. It's fine; the chain is still sturdy, solid and always stylish. The flaws in no way detract from the overall appearance, wearability or pure FABULOUSNESS of the bag.
