THE 2.55 BAG

In February of 1955, Gabrielle Chanel launches the iconic 2.55 quilted handbag, naming the style after the date of its creation. Combining leather with a gold chain, she invents a supple new style of shoulder strap that is uniquely strong and light, and that allows a woman's hands to remain free.
