Chanel’s Chevron Quilted Reissue 2.55 Wallet On Chain bag is special, it is a class on its own for it is designed very much like the famous Chanel Reissue 2.55 Flap Bag. You will instantly recognize this by the ‘mademoiselle’ lock on the front.

For other readers, you might think it looks familiar to you. You might probably think you’ve seen this before. Okay, let’s make it easier for you and let’s walk down memory lane. Yes, we’ve featured this bag before but that previous post talks about Chanel’s WOC in Diamond Quilted Leather but now it comes in a Chevron Quilting Leather effect.

We are absolutely digging the navy blue color of this bag as it looks regal, polished and ritzy all at once. And the Chevron quilting effect also added a touch of opulence to it. The gold-like straps and the golden twist-off lock completed the look of this one-of-a-kind WOC bag.

Crafted from aged calfskin and light gold hardware, the Chanel Chevron Quilted Reissue 2.55 WOC has the style code A80834, measuring 4.8′ x 7.6′ x 1.4′ inches, priced at €1915 euro via Chanel boutique.

CHANEL REISSUE 2.55 VIVID STITCHED FLAP BAG

As the Beauty and The Beast song goes “Tale as old as time” so as the Chanel Reissue 2.55 Flap Bag as it has a rich history behind it. An original byproduct of Coco Chanel herself, the Chanel Reissue 2.55 got its name because it was initially issued in February 1955. Fast-forward to 2016, the Reissue 2.55 Flap Bag comes in an all new makeover in Vivid Stitched design.

Now let’s go back in time and compare this modern version to its original predecessor. Looking closely, the Reissue 2.55 Vivid Stitched Flap Bag has some new element to it: the stitches are bolder and more apparent but you can still find the reissue 2.55 elements like the closure and the chain.

We are also loving its nudish pink color that looks absolutely feminine and chic. A go-to bag for the modern-day woman, you can nonchalantly walk in and out of the door with confidence knowing you are wearing a Chanel bag creation.

Chanel Soft Leather 2.55 Collection

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: BAGAHOLICBOY

You should have already read the first post on Chanel’s Soft Leather 2.55 collection, an icon in its own right that quite literally has been given new skin. And the skin in this case refers to the ‘soft leather’ you’ll find on these 2.55 bags that should be launched sometime in Singapore come June 2016.

Why is this leather so special then, you ask? Well, for starters, it’s cut only from a certain portion of the entire skin, where it’s the softest and also has the fewest imperfections for that almost flawless finish. It’s also lightly-treated, meaning when it came to treating and tanning the leather, not that much was done, which would allow the leather to patina most beautifully over time. Or in layman’s terms, age.

So unlike leather that has been botoxed and varnished to a hilt (you know, like the ladies you see when you flip through society magazines), this leather, like the real you, is supposed to age over time, and take on characteristics unique to its owner,from tiny nicks where your pinky’s nail digs into the side of the bag, to minor creases that resemble the crow’s feet on your face. Ok, maybe not the best way to sell any leather bag, but you know what I mean, and if you’re big on that whole aged, vintage look, rest assured that this will happen slowly but surely with this 2.55.

And because I managed to spend quality time with these beauties over the weekend, here’s the rest of what you need to know about these 2.55 bags. For starters, one of the versions we’ll get in Singapore will come with a two-tone grosgrain and chain trim that will run along from underside to the sides of the bag. Then there’s the metal chain sling, which, if you look closely enough, comes beautifully-etched on the sides of the metal pieces. The cameo charms that come with each bag? One’s of Coco Chanel herself, the other is a lion, which also happens to be the Coco Chanel’s zodiac sign, the Leo.

Then there’s the inside, each 2.55 double-flap bag lined with tactile suede, where you’ll find a front pocket and a larger compartment on the back with 3 separate patch pocket compartments. A flap with button closure keeps everything secure, before the main flap goes over everything else for that added bit of ‘security’. To finish it off, Chanel’s reassuring Made In France label is sewn below the CC logo that’s stitched onto the flap.

Last, but by no means least, there’s an additional patch pocket on the back of the bag, but I guess you already knew that. What you don’t know is the two colours it will come in when it is launched sometime in June this year, the first, a Navy that you see in the first snap, and this, which is a warmer, slightly darker colour they are callingCamel. Both colours are gorgeous, you just need to decide when you see the 24 cm by 16 cm by 7.5 cm bags (priced at SGD7280 each, by the way) in Chanel boutiques in a couple of months.

Chanel 2.55 WOC

Perhaps this is the reason why, let me ask you one question:
Would Coco Chanel shrink the Chanel 2.55 Reissue Flap Bag to a mini size?
To be honest, I do not know and I do not really care, because what I am witnessing is mesmerizing and hypnotizing. So classy, so stylish, so timeless – every detail is embellished with traditional elements of the brand. Meet the Chanel 2.55 Wallet on Chain (also known as WOC). Now listen to the story:
Coco Chanel was inspired to make this bag in 1920, because she was tired of carrying her bags on her arms and wanted something to free up her hands. The thin straps were added in 1929, inspired by the soldier’s bag. The final refinement and the update version of this bag was released in February 1955, this is how the Chanel 2.55 Flap Bag got its name.
Now the iconic Chanel 2.55 is also available in the Wallet on Chain design. What a beauty!
When I said that every traditional element has been added, then I mean it. First, it’s made from aged calfskin, similar to the Chanel 2.55 Reissue Flap Bag. This leather makes this bag look like its ‘used’, a bit of vintage, which is amazing. Then what you also must admire is the mademoiselle lock, put in the center of this bag. This lock represents Coco Chanel for never getting married.
At last, what is very limited nowadays, is that this version of 2.55 WOC is in all black. The Chanel 2.55 WOC so black is very limited and will vanish from the catalogues when this season is over. When it’s gone, then no one knows when it will return.
The prices, colors and the sizes:
Chanel 2.55 Wallet on Chain is measured 4.8’ x 7.5’ x 1.6’ inches.
Style code: A69206

Chanel Soft Leather 2.55 Collection

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: CHANEL

You should already be aware of Chanel’s new bag, a third one after the Boy and the Girlin recent years and simply called the Drawstring. If you’re an ardent reader of this blog,you would already have read the post that went up last week.

Besides the fact that it is going to be a completely new style for the French luxury house, the Drawstring also features what Chanel calls ‘ultra-soft leather’, so hard to come by (and therefore precious), it’s cut only from a certain portion of the entire skin, presumably the part where it’s the softest and also has the fewest imperfections for that almost flawless finish.

Given a light hand whilst treating the leather, it also promises to patina beautifully over time, which is something I would expect for a more naturally-hued leather, and it also promises to be smooth, as it is touted to be ‘as soft as peach skin’, which would be so enjoyably tactile in my opinion.

IMAGE: CHANEL

Which brings us to the purpose of today’s post. Yes, that’s the 2.55 we all know and love, and come June 2016 you’ll be able to buy it in Singapore (and the rest of the world, of course) in soft leather as well. Gone is the signature quilting which we are familiar with on both Caviar and lambskin variations; this one is completely clean, and you could say, almost vintage-looking.

Available in at least 2 sizes and 4 colours (Black/Burgundy/Camel/Navy) for the first launch come June 2016 (or end-May if we’re really lucky), there should be another post on its exact sizes and prices in SGD. And as far as I can tell so far, only the one inCamel (shown above) comes with the 2 hanging charms; the rest are without, which works too.

So sit tight, drool and start saving. More updates will come, I promise.
