February 1955: The Birth of An Icon

One of the most iconic designer bags in the world is Coco Chanel’s 2.55 handbag that was inspired by the floor tiles in the nunnery Chanel grew up in and the chains the nuns there would carry. While the icon has had its share of updates the Chanel 2.55 is still instantly recognizable, and remains one of the world’s most sought after bags. This fall, the quilted trend that Chanel has featured for decades, is in high demand. This season Balmain and Brian Atwood’s splurge-worthy pieces represent flawless, archive-worthy takes on the trend but lower-priced finds from Micheal kors and Rebecca Minkoff are an equally stylish way to play with it too. So If you’re still saving up to get your Chanel 2.55 ( and get one you should) then make sure your still on trend this fall with these quilted pieces.
