Chanel Beige Quilted Caviar Jumbo Classic 2.55 Double Flap Bag

About

Chanel beige Jumbo Classic 2.55 double flap bag of quilted caviar leather with gold tone hardware. Named 2.55 to honor the bag's creation in February 1955, the iconic Chanel bag was a modification of the bag Coco Chanel originally designed in 1929. Recognizing the value of carrying a bag without use of her hands, Coco added shoulder straps so that her hands remained free. Like much of Chanel's iconic items, the design is based on her childhood experiences. The burgundy lining that lined the early bags is believed to reflect the color of Coco's Catholic school uniform; the straps reminiscent of the belts that the nuns at the school wore. The quilting believed to be based on the materials worn by the stable boys where Coco rode horses as a girl. Coco added the zipper compartment under the first flap to stash love letters (she was having an affair at the time) and the half moon rear pocket for a place to store extra cash. Originally designed with the Mademoiselle lock (named because Coco was not married), the 2.55 was redesigned by Karl Lagerfeld in the 1980s to include the famous front CC turnlock closure. The Jumbo has gone through several style iterations since the 1980s; the present double flap style was introduced in 2011. This Jumbo Classic 2.55 double flap bag of rich beige quilted caviar leather is one of the most coveted Chanel bags that Chanel produces. The bag features a front flap with signature CC turnlock closure, half moon back pocket and an adjustable interwoven gold tone chain link and beige leather shoulder strap. The interior is lined in beige leather with small zipper compartment under first flap; "outer" slit pocket under second flap and inside two open pockets separated by "lipstick" compartment.
