Of course, most would probably say they’d like to buy the classic Chanel 2.55 flap bag. The iconic piece was first created by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel herself when she got fed up of carrying her bag in her arms. To free herself up, she decided to borrow the idea of having straps, which she’d seen on a soldier’s bag. As per everything else Chanel created, it was a revolutionary take on the item, as up until that point, women carried their handbags. The 2.55 bag was launched in 1955, hence the name. However, it wasn’t until the ’80s, when Karl Lagerfeld took the helm, that the double-C locks were introduced.
