Authentic Chanel shoulder bag is a category with most of the iconic bags the classics Double flap known as 2.55, Maxi Jumbo, Kelly, Diana or WOC (wallet on chain) purses. All from vintage to modern reproductions and limited editions in mainly lambskin and caviar leather but as well other recently used materials. I believe most Chanel owners start with this category for its functionality and simplicity. Many do have the option to be converted from shoulder to handbag or clutch so you have 3 in 1 – Original idea and design by Coco Chanel. This is the most recognizable category where you will find a smart fashion investment!
The House of Chanel started in 1909 when Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel known as COCO opened her first store in Paris (31 rue Cambon Ave). In the early stages, Chanel focused solely on “haute couture” (high fashion) and ready-to-wear clothing pieces and hats (Chanel Suit), later adding jewelry, accessories and perfumes (No.5 de Chanel) to their collections.
In February 1955 – a historical date – Coco Chanel introduced a double flap handbag with a mademoiselle closure and a metal chain that would later become one of the most easily recognizable handbags in the world, with its name based on the date of introduction – “The 2.55”. Karl Lagerfeld joined the company in 1983 as chief designer and brought a touch of today
to this very classical brand. In 2003,Coco Mademoiselle was the new line celebrating younger generations and capturing new
audience with a softer approach. Over the last 100 years, Chanel became one of the most iconic brands of our time.
Today, Chanel is associated with luxury, distinguished taste and high social status.
