Chanel ladies and fans will absolutely fall head over heels with its Reissue 2.55 Small Wallet. These leather gems are sure to make the waves in the fashion industry as the beloved and famous Chanel 2.55 now comes in the handy dandy form of wallets. Well, all bags have their own stories to tell and with each creation is a rich history that gives them their own unique personality.

The Chanel 2.55 bears its name due to the simple reason that it was originally launched in public in February of 1955. The front lock also features the Mademoiselle Lock (because the legendary Coco Chanel was never married) which is strikingly different from the classic double CC logo we’re all familiar with. Karl Lagerfeld, who is now the creative director behind the famous fashion house reissued the 2.55 in February 2005 in commemoration to the 50th anniversary of the original 2.55 personally designed by Coco herself.

A pure luxury on its own, the Chanel 2.55 is a luxury leather handbag/purse that changed the game and the course of the fashion industry. Fast forward to 2016, we know have the Reissue 2.55 but now in small wallets. It features aged calfskin and light gold metal materials with black and burgundy lining. So what do you think.

Oeps, another surprise! Now tell us what you really want to slip inside your handbag? How about the Chanel Reissue 2.55 Flap Wallet?

This is a new thing – the iconic 2.55 reissue reinvented into a flap accessory (2.55 reissue is one of the signature collection of Chanel). Now we do know that the Quilted Flap Wallet exists, but the Reissue 2.55 Flap Wallet? One please!

So how to tell the difference between the original Chanel Quilted Flap Wallet and the Reissue 2.55 Quilted Flap Wallet?

It’s all about the clasp – you see the Chanel Quilted Flap Wallet (the classic edition) is crafted with the CC logo on the front while the Chanel Reissue 2.55 is adorned with the Mademoiselle lock.

And if you want deeper information, the Mademoiselle lock actually represents Coco Chanel for never marrying.

Though we are certain you will find more colors, we do need you to know that for the Spring Summer 2016 Collection act 1, they’re made in washed denim. Measuring 4.1’ x 7.7’ x 1.4’ inches, style code A80829, priced at $900 USD or €795 euro at Chanel boutique.

The Chanel Reissue 224

Categories:Other Brands

Today I thought I would do a review on one of my favorite versatile bags that I frequently take with me when we travel. I’ve been receiving more questions about crossbody bag recommendations, and this is one of my favorites. The bag in question is the classic Chanel reissue, in the (I believe) tiniest size, the 224. Reissues start at 224, and go from 225, 226, 227, all the way to 228.

Chanel 224 Reissue

Chanel makes a lot of great “mini” bags including the popular “mini” flap and the wallet on chain, but I ended up choosing the reissue style in the end because the small size was essentially a smaller version of the larger bag, in everything from construction to design. A lot of the time I find that these smaller bags have made some tradeoffs in design (of course there’s usually a cost savings as well) – pockets are missing, or the strap is smaller, etc.

The reissue in the 224 size has everything its larger siblings have – the double flap, zip pocket, front open pocket, leather lining.

Chanel 224 Reissue Open

You probably have to be a lover of mini bags (as I am) to really like the 224. The bag, while small, I think holds a good amount for its little size. Just the essentials – my iPhone 6 Plus (yes with a case), a small card case (not pictured, I use the Citizen Twill from Hermes), sunglasses in a thin cloth pouch, and a lipstick. There’s a small pocket in the back that I use for tickets, a metro card, etc.

Chanel Reissue 224 What Fits Inside

And now..a demonstration of why I love this bag and bring it with me on travels often. you can wear it a bunch of ways…including crossbody! The best way to wear a bag while traveling, in my opinion.

Chanel 224 Reissue Front

I also like that this little bag really easily transitions from day to evening….you can just double up the straps for a chic night out.

Chanel 224 Reissue Side

The reissue can also be folded flat, though I can understand why some people might hesitate to do so. I do fold mine when I pack it in my carryon, and it’s always survived the flight easily.

Chanel 224

Overall, I can highly recommend this little bag – it’s a classic and one of my favorites that Chanel makes. If I had unlimited funds I would definitely be looking into another color – but for now I’m happy with my black!

A big downside is the price. Chanel is of course always expensive. The 224 retails now for something like $4000 (last time I checked) – its equivalent on the classic flap side, the mini flap, is somewhere around $2700 I believe? That’s quite a difference! And wow, the prices just keep going up, every time I check.

By the way – for a few alternate versions of this bag, I’d recommend the Stella McCartney Falabella for a fraction of the price (under $1,000), as well as the PS1 by Proenza Schouler (fits more as well), for under $1,400.

CHANEL REISSUE 2.55 WALLETS

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Reissue-Wallets

If anything, we are all about them basics – the primitive and exquisite form of our most beloved designs, which are brought to life by virtue of reissues!

Last year, Chanel celebrated its Métiers D’Art show, which honors the glory and craftsmanship of its partners, which make mass production of their top-selling products possible. As part of this joyous event, a reissue of the famous Chanel 2.55 has been made…in the form of wallets!

A little backstory about the illustrious history of the Chanel 2.55, though – the bags were named such because they were issued on February 1955. It had to undergo a series of tests for quality control – a process that has been unchanged by Karl Lagerfeld, ‘til this day. Characteristics unique to the product, such as its material, color, hardware and stitching are carefully assessed so as to ensure resistance from wear and tear.

From the collection, two reissues are about to make waves: the aged calfskin zipped wallet, and the card holder. Both of these leather babies bear the Mademoiselle lock, which is suitably named by Coco Chanel herself, as she basked in the glory of being a single woman until her death.

Chanel Reissue 2.55 Zipped Wallet
Size: 4.1′ x 7.6′ x 1′ inches (H x L x W)
Price: €825 EUR

Chanel Reissue 2.55 Card Holder
Size: 3′ x 4.4′ x 0.2′ inches (H x L x W)
Price: €250 EUR
