I LOVE: Chanel 2.55

In February 1955, Coco Chanel launched a bag that sparked a revolution in the world of luxury goods. The 2.55 takes its name from this date, and remains a synonym for elegance and exclusivity to this day.

 

The Chanel 2.55 by the numbers:
- Up to 18 hours of work
- 6 to 15 people involved in the making of the bag
- 50% of models made in black, in numerous different leathers and skins
- More than 180 stages involved in the production of the bag.
