CHANEL NUDE REISSUE 2.55 BAG

Fashion

Chanel-Nude-Reissue-2.55-Bag

The Reissue 2.55 Bag is the true classic of the house, because it was created by the founder Gabrielle Chanel in the 1920’s. Since then, the 2.55 Bag slowly disappeared from fashion as it was replaced by endless of updated versions. However, the original edition was brought back to life thanks to Karl Lagerfeld in February 2005. Karl studied Gabrielle Chanel’s work and created the exact copy. The release date of the reissue version of February 2005 also happens to be the 50th anniversary of the creation of the original version.

The Reissue 2.55 Bag and the Classic Flap Bag are like siblings, they go hand in hand. So when smooth leather version of the Classic Flap Bag was released, the Reissue 2.55 Bag needed to follow as well.

The smooth leather version (without the quilting) of the Classic Flap Bag is called ‘Chanel Pure Classic Flap Bag’. The smooth leather version of the Reissue 2.55 Bag is called ‘Chanel Nude Reissue 2.55 Bag’.

There are a few more general details we need to share. The Nude Reissue 2.55 Bag is a not new bag; the first version was released in the Pre-Fall 2016 Collection. Since then, the style was temporary discontinued until the Pre-Fall 2018 Collection. And it’s not a coincidence that it was reintroduced for the Pre-Fall season. And who knows, this bag might get discontinued again and re-released two years later for the Pre-Fall 2020 Collection.

The Reissue 2.55 Nude Bag comes in two versions. One is the basic edition; the second one is slightly more luxurious. We will make a comparison later on.

The Smooth Nude Leather

So what makes the ‘Nude’ version different than the ‘Quilted’ version? Well first of all, it’s the leather. The classic edition of Reissue 2.55 Bag in diamond quilted is built from aged calfskin. The nude edition of the Reissue 2.55 Bag is made from smooth calfskin.

In the Chanel Leather Guide, we talk more about the ‘aged calfskin’ leather.

The leather is very important because it changes the experience of the bag. The diamond quilting feels busier, sophisticated and more classic, it can also attract more attention. The smooth leather version is more humble, quiet, relaxing and less busy. Choose the one that fits to your personality and taste.

Besides these two important adjustments, the Nude Reissue 2.55 Bag hasn’t changed in shape and measurement. The critical components like the Mademoiselle Lock, jewel-like double chain as well as the back pocket remained in tact.

The Special Edition Of The Nude Reissue 2.55 Bag

The special edition of the Nude 2.55 Bag – check the side with chain and multicolor

There is a unique version of the Nude Reissue 2.55 Bag. This style is embellished with multicolor sides in blue and red, designed with different material. The side is also refined with a thinner version of a necklace-like chain for decoration purpose. This chain is smaller than the shoulder chain strap.

As a side note; this special edition has been reintroduced for the Pre-Fall 2018 Collection. And to contribute to the Paris-Hamburg theme, it’s embellished with two beautiful charms. One is an anchor and it represents Hamburg’s famous port.

The Interior

The interior is the same as the original version of the Reissue 2.55 Bag. There is a front pocket behind the flap and a main compartment.

CHANEL CAMELLIA QUILTED ENAMEL CC CASE

Other Brands

Chanel-Camellia-Quilted-Enamel-CC-Case

There are countless of reasons why we should invest in the Chanel Camellia Quilted Enamel CC Case from the Pre-Fall 2018 Collection. The truth cannot be seen far away, because from distance the leather looks like aged calfskin. But when you get closer and closer, we will be surprised! It’s a new type of quilting.

The Design

Chanel-Camellia-Quilted-Enamel-CC-Case-4

So what kind of new type of quilting is that? Well, it’s one of the house’s iconic symbols – the camellia flower quilting. It’s a new invention because we have never seen small-sized camellia’s lined up next to each other and embellished all over the bag. It’s just like the diamond quilting, but then no diamonds, with camellia. Get it?

There is a second reason why we should invest into this Case. It’s because of the Enamel CC Logo. This logo looks contemporary as it’s crafted in the same color as the bag, refined with light gold hardware on the edges.

This Case can be used to store cosmetics or carried as an evening pouch. And we don’t have to worry about constant baby-ing this handbag as it’s crafted from grained calfskin. So what do you think?

The Interior

Chanel-Camellia-Quilted-Enamel-CC-Case-8

The interior is made with a main compartment to help organize our make-up essentials or to store evening essentials.

The Prices And Sizes

Style code A70309, measuring 4.5’ x 2’ x 5.9’ inches, priced at $5700 HKD, $700 USD, $905 CAD, €620 EUR, £550 GBP, $1060 SGD, $1030 AUD, 2830 MYR.

CHANEL REVERSED CHEVRON ROUND FLAP BAG

Other Brands

Chanel-Reversed-Chevron-Round-Flap-Bag-3

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the prettiest in the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection? That would be the Chanel Reversed Chevron Round Flap Bag. This bag is fresh, unique and only available in this season. It has a timeless look and a modernized chevron design.

The shape is less round but more curved with smooth edges. It has a feminine look, which enhances any outfit you wear. It’s a bag to be proud of, because in every detail, it tells the story of Chanel.

The Chanel Round Flap Bag is made with the new Reversed Chevron Quilting. This Chevron print creates a modern appeal and it’s perfect for the casual days. The front flap is designed with the house’s iconic interlocking CC logo and it’s not the smooth logo you see on the Classic Flap Bag. This interlocking CC reminds me of the ones on the vintage Chanel Bags.

The house purposely picked aged gold hardware for the final refinement, which balanced with the contemporary chevron print. The bag comes with a shoulder strap in the classic woven chain leather strap as well as flexible handles for the tote carry.

Made from lambskin, the style code is A98791, measuring 7.9’ x 7.1’ x 3.1’ inches and is priced at $3100 USD, €2990 euro, £2660 GBP, $23500 HKD, ¥379080 JPY, ¥23100 CNY, $3950 CAD via Chanel boutiques.

So what do you think? We got a lot of positive reactions when we shared it to the bag community.

CHANEL COCO QUILTED FLAP BAG

Other Brands

Chanel-Coco-Quilted-Bag

Black, white and beige are the colors of Chanel. When a quilted handbag is mixed with black and white or beige, we think of Chanel, we think of Gabrielle Chanel. But why black? Because it highlights the essential parts. Why white? It echoes the uniform colors of the nuns from her childhood. And beige because it feels warm and natural; it reminds her of healthy glowing skin shined by the sun. Black and Beige remain an important part of Chanel; they’ve been the classic colors for years. And so when we spot a beautiful handbag like this Chanel Coco Quilted Bag, we just can’t help and fall in love.

Falling in love indeed, especially when the bag is crafted in diamond quilting similar to the Classic Flap Bag. This Chanel bag is a new design from the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection and it feels like a dream come true. Part leather and part quilting have been trending lately, but this bag has taken the definition ‘beauty’ to a whole new level. The bottom of the front flap is crafted in smooth leather and decorated in the classic color beige. Then the center features a new tiny interlocking CC in black metal hardware. The smooth leather has been cut in circle around the CC logo, creating a very attractive look.

Black and beige are both classic colors, now these two shades have teamed-up and the result is stunning. With one look, this bag instantly reminds you of Chanel. The design is fresh and given that it’s only available this season, you will be one of the few to carry it. Put the Classic Flap Bag and Boy Bag on hold, because you’ve a bigger mission to work on.

So is it love or what? Let us know in the comment section.

First Chanel Price Increase for Most of Europe in 2017

Other Brands

WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING, PRICES ON THE CHANEL ITEMS YOU’VE HAD YOUR EYES ON WENT UP THIS WEEK…

While you were sleeping (and possibly planning that next handbag purchase), Chanel increased its prices in much of Europe. In typical Chanel fashion, there was no warning aside from rumors circulating on the PurseForum that I’ve been following for a while. (I’ve been told often that tPF breaks news before even the majority of sales associates know about it.) There’s a bit of good news and bad news, so I’m here to break it down for you.

Good (?) news is that the price increase only affected mainland Europe and took effect Monday. If you’re in the USA like we are, you are fine, as well as other countries including Canada, Australia, Singapore, the United Kingdom and more. While a price increase is always a rather unfortunate reality, this one wasn’t one of Chanel’s worst, as the brand has been known to raise its prices by up to 10% in the past.

The price increases range from 5% to 7%, depending on the item, while some seasonal styles and the newly released Chanel Gabrielle Bag were not impacted.

CHANEL ITEMS PRICE INCREASE
Flap Bags 5%
Reissue Bags 5%
Wallet on Chains 7%
Boy Bags 7%
Wallets 5%

You can check out Chanel.com on the European site to see newly updated prices. We will work on updating our Chanel price list, but to give some examples of the changes, the WOC went from €1740 to €1865, the Chanel Jumbo Classic Flap went from €4750 to €4990 and the Chanel New Medium Boy Bag went from €4150 to €4440.
