Posted on August 29 2013Style Spotlight: Chanel 2.55 The 2.55 was designed by Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel and while the design was erected in the 1920s, the bag was not released until after the Second World War in February of 1955. The name derived from the year that it launched, is created with calfskin, lambskin or fur in a range of colours. Lambskin was a key material in the design as it was soft and pliant. The diamond quilting was also an essential element as is the chain. The chain is meant to be worn short or long which is plated in 24-carat gold. The classic model which has a dark red lining reflects the colour of the uniforms in the convent. Since it's launch, there have been various reissues of the iconic design.
