There are four Chanel Wallet On Chain Bags that are considered the ‘Must Haves’. These WOCs are made in such a way that you can call them ‘timeless’.

The first two are classics – the Chanel Classic Quilted WOC and the Chanel Reissue 2.55 WOC. The last two are recently introduced, but their fame has already reached the moon – the Chanel Trendy CC WOC and the Chanel golden Class Double CC WOC.

The Chanel Reissue 2.55 WOC, also known as the Mademoiselle WOC, was released not long ago, but the idea came from the Chanel Reissue 2.55 Flap Bag and this bag doesn’t need any introduction.

The Reissue 2.55 WOC went through the same process as the Chanel Reissue 2.55 Flap Bag, but with some adjustment of course due to its smaller size.

But take a closer look – the famous Mademoiselle Lock, the leather looks like it has been worn and made from aged calfskin. With stunning chains, this bag deserves to be in your wardrobe.

Consider this bag as the smallest size in the Chanel Reissue 2.55 Line; its perfect for the evenings and you will be wearing one of the iconic. How much glam is that?

The interior is just like other WOC’s – structured and plenty of compartments for your essentials.

Style code: A80834, measuring 4.8’ x 7.6’ x 1.4’ inches, priced at $2100 USD, €1915 euro, £1620 GBP, $3060 SGD, $16100 HKD, $3100 AUD, ¥260280 JPY via Chanel boutiques.

Karl Lagerfeld went straight to the point, he said: ‘What I’ve done, Coco Chanel would never have done. She would have hated it’.

Oh really?

Perhaps this is the reason why, let me ask you one question:

Would Coco Chanel shrink the Chanel 2.55 Reissue Flap Bag to a mini size?

To be honest, I do not know and I do not really care, because what I am witnessing is mesmerizing and hypnotizing. So classy, so stylish, so timeless – every detail is embellished with traditional elements of the brand. Meet the Chanel 2.55 Wallet on Chain (also known as WOC). Now listen to the story:

Coco Chanel was inspired to make this bag in 1920, because she was tired of carrying her bags on her arms and wanted something to free up her hands. The thin straps were added in 1929, inspired by the soldier’s bag. The final refinement and the update version of this bag was released in February 1955, this is how the Chanel 2.55 Flap Bag got its name.

Now the iconic Chanel 2.55 is also available in the Wallet on Chain design. What a beauty!

When I said that every traditional element has been added, then I mean it. First, it’s made from aged calfskin, similar to the Chanel 2.55 Reissue Flap Bag. This leather makes this bag look like its ‘used’, a bit of vintage, which is amazing. Then what you also must admire is the mademoiselle lock, put in the center of this bag. This lock represents Coco Chanel for never getting married.

At last, what is very limited nowadays, is that this version of 2.55 WOC is in all black. The Chanel 2.55 WOC so black is very limited and will vanish from the catalogues when this season is over. When it’s gone, then no one knows when it will return.

The prices, colors and the sizes:

Chanel 2.55 Wallet on Chain is measured 4.8’ x 7.5’ x 1.6’ inches.
Style code: A69206
Price: $2,150 USD

Oh, have you checked the Chanel Reissue 2.55 So black yet?

You stare at the window, looking at the most beautiful purse you’ve ever seen. You check at the price, you can’t buy it because you need a shoulder bag, not another wallet. You walk away and wish it had a shoulder strap. But just like all beautiful things, you can’t get shake it off your head.

This is the reason why the Chanel Wallet on Chain aka WOC was born. It’s the most versatile bag you can ever own, a ‘must have’. Wear it at day, take it to shopping, brag it at school and sling it at work, walk like a model at the runway because you got a Chanel and when the sun change places with the moon, hide the shoulder strap inside your bag and transform it into an evening clutch.

Why the Chanel WOC? Unlike a clutch bag, it has enough space for all your essentials. It’s half the price of the classic flap bag, but still fully packed with Chanel traditions like the CC signature. There are enough types to choose from and available in different colors. WOC’s are well thought and structured bags, they are usually made in France and it has the quality to make you shine.

Just like all Chanel accessories, the WOCs also increase in price every year. Fortunately it doesn’t go as fast as the more expensive bags like the 2.55 reissue or the boy bags. Even if you already own one of the classic flaps, it still good to own at least one WOC.

The Chanel Wallet on Chain consist of 7 classic styles and recently 8 thanks to the ‘irresistible’ boy bag. Let’s cover all the style codes and prices:

Amanda Bynes: 3 Super Cute Outfits with the Jumbo 2.55 Chanel

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

Sometimes, I get totally inspired by celebrity style! Rachel Bilson, Blake Lively, and Cheryl Cole are a few favorites. Today, I wanted to share 3 super-easy but super-cute outfits that Amanda Bynes wore with her gorgeous classic jumbo 2.55 classic Chanel bag.

I really liked these outfits. Aside from the Chanel, all of the clothing articles are readily-available essentials... like a white tank top, leggings, and stuff that you probably have in your closet. Still, the outfits are super flattering!

Let me give you an example -- along with some links for where to purchase... You know how your significant other always tells you that jeans and a t shirt is so sexy? Well, there’s definitely some truth to classic pieces with great fit: Leggings, white tank, ankle boots with buckles, long necklace, sunglasses, and a menswear-inspired watch.

Next up... a Herve Leger skirt , white tank , YSL Tribtoo or other black pump, a menswear-inspired watch, bangles, and a feather necklace.

Herve Leger skirt Tribtoo YSL Chanel

Finally... a boyfriend blazer (here), YSL Tribtoo or other black pump, white blouse, black mini skirt

sexy but serious outfit

I hope you enjoyed this post, and I hope it will inspire you to have fun playing with your basics! Sometimes great-fitting basics create the best outfits… particularly when accompanied by a gorgeous Chanel! LoL…

Chanel 2.55 Double Flap: Caviar vs Lambskin

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

The Chanel 2.55 purse commonly comes in two types of leathers: caviar and lambskin. The retail cost for either is about the same. Here we’ll go over the differences between black lambskin vs. black caviar leather: how they age, maintenance, and look. We’ve taken two iconic Chanel bags and put them side to side.

chanel bags

The lambskin on the left is from 1995. The caviar on the right is from 2004.

In general, the caviar leather is much more sturdy than its lambskin counterpart. Although a few years ago, lambskin was more expensive than caviar due to its very smooth and soft finish. Which look do we prefer? Depending on who you ask, you’ll get a different answer!

The lambskin rates higher for being very luxurious looking. The gleam from the black lambskin is quite dramatic and striking. But, trust us when we say either purses are dangerously beautiful!

For a day to day purse, the caviar rates higher due to its amazing ability to withstand abuse. Black lambskin is not fragile and is relatively easy to maintain due to its dark color.

gorgeous bags

To store a 2.55 Chanel, one must keep some tissue paper or other soft clean material in the body of the purse and set it on its bottom in a dry place out of the sunlight. For lambskin, the chain should not rest too heavily on the bag, and a soft sheet of fabric should be placed between the flaps. All materials used for storage should not have color rub off.

The caviar bag’s leather does not need to be conditioned. Contrary to popular belief, lambskin does not require conditioning either. This information was given to us by a Chanel specialist at the Chanel boutique! The shiny patina that you see on many older Chanel, both lambskin and caviar, is actually produced by wearing the bag over time!

Chanel 2.55 purse

These bags age magnificently. The striking lambskin is 17 years old! With age, the puffy quilting on lambskin will most likely flatten somewhat, and some wrinkling may show when the bag is not filled. Although, the lambskin is more prone to scratches and scuffs, you can see that none of it is very significant given moderate care.

Caviar will maintain its puffy quilting throughout time if stored correctly. It’s also harder to scratch and scuff. This makes it more ideal for an everyday purse.

Chanel bags classic double flap

If needed, either bag may be sent to a Chanel store for a full restoration for less than $300. Please keep in mind, neither bags in the photos have had to be repaired. This speaks to the impeccable quality of Chanel!

The Chanel 2.55′s interior is just as well made as the outside. This means superb strong structure on either bag.

Hermes VS Chanel

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

Chanel or Hermes, I simply love bags. I simply can’t choose between them, if I could, I would get both of them. But for a bag addicted like me, I am very picky about hand bags.

Chanel’s bag were never that expensive as they are today. How much again? $4,500 PLUS for a classic flap bag? Two years ago they were half in price, if I knew this would happen, I had bought several more.

It is like Chanel is trying to upgrade their brand image and compete on the higher level with exclusive brands like Hermes and others. What is Hermes bag cost? Around $10,000?

Here is a tricky question; Image Chanel flap bag cost $10,000 and the Hermes Birking bag is also priced $10,000. Which bag would you prefer? Chanel or Hermes?
at our site replica hermes bags only $257,replica chanel bags only $187
You do not get these prices just like that, their quality should be questioned. When I went to the Chanel (the secret of Chanel 2.55) (the secret of Chanel 2.55) exhibition, they show how their bags are made. And apparently, most of the production time is being handmade or set-up together manually by an experienced handcraft. Chanel has also specialized machine that nowhere can be bought, because THEY MADE hard time copying them.

Hermes bag should not be any difference. I never went to their exhibition, but I am not surprised the process is about the same, which is hand-made.

On my handbag forum, several Chanel customers have been complaining about the quality of Chanel. One of them are the quality of the leather, some say that they look cheap, dull and non shiny. Others were complaining about the twist-lock back plate, that they are not equal.

When spending that much of money, the quality is important.

Mostly, we buy hand bags because of the feeling. Convince me, how would you feel differently when wearing Chanel comparing with your other $50,- hand bags? If you do not feel anything, then you probably are not a handbag lover.

How does Chanel hand bags make you feel and how Hermes hand bags made you feel are both very important factors. Hermes have been around for a longer time with higher prices and Chanel have just been rising.

The Secrets Of Chanel 2.55 Handbag

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

chanel-classic-bag-production-1

Attended at the exhibition in New York on the 57th Chanel Jewelry St, the Chanel 2.55 has a quite interesting story. Seats at the exhibition were limited and it was held between the 8th and 16th of May. The common question on everyone’s lips was: “What are the secrets of the Chanel 2.55 handbag?”.

The exhibition featured basically everything about the bag. From modern day production and design, to the bag’s background story. The exhibition featured a 70 inch flat screen television that was put on top to display how exactly the Chanel 2.55 was made. The steps are as follows:

Step One: Cutting
Step Two: Quilting
Step Three: Assembly
Step Four: Shaping
Step Five: Turning Out
Step Six: Chain
Step Seven: Packing

After viewing the birth process of the Chanel 2.55, it makes you anxious to purchase it. The exhibition centered a lot of hype and inspiration on the bag (and for good reason, too).

First, the cutting is carried out by special machines that were personally designed just for Chanel. This is just a piece of the pie, as to why the Chanel 2.55 is an awesome bag to have. More than 80% of the bag’s production time is composed of prep function. Prepping the bag actually involves around 180 stages.

Then a master craftsman puts all the components of the bag together. This can take up to ten hours, only on one bag. The bag is then sewn together inside out. Then it takes another craftsman to turn the bag back out. This takes a lot of skill, and is the main secret behind the Chanel 2.55.

The bag is then screwed together, with the hardware and grommets. Right before the finished product is being polished and prepping for tissue paper wrap, the handbag is finished off with the chain. With all these specifications, imagine how Coco Chanel herself must’ve designed and assembled the original Chanel 2.55 handbag.
The name 2.55 refers to the date that Coco Chanel had released the bag, February 1955. As the years comes by, the popularity of the Chanel 2.55 was vague and was re-introduced by Karl Lagerfeld on February 2005. That’s it got the name: Chanel 2.55 reissued.

What Is The Difference Between Chanel Classic Flap Bag And Chanel Classic 2.55 Reissue?

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

chanel-differences-classic-flap-bag-and-reissue-255

Another question I receive quite often is: ‘What are the differences between the classic flap bag and the reissue 2.55?’. There’s indeed a huge distinction between these two bags and it’s not only the size, but more importantly the style.

Chanel just brought back their mini classic flap bag. It was discontinued some time ago, but the new mini flap has a different look. It’s almost similar like the medium classic flap, but then one size smaller. (It was used to be more squared, as far as I know).

Chanel Classic Flap Bags
The Chanel classic flap bags have four sizes sizes: small, medium/large, jumbo and maxi. I am not sure why they named the medium also large, but this bag is actually not as large as you might think. The jumbo is still an okay size, but the maxi is huge.

The Chanel reissue 2.55 handbag is the exact copy of the original 2.55 bag that Coco Chanel has released in 1955. And thanks to Karl Lagerfeld for making that possible, he released the reissue version in February 2005. The Chanel 2.55 has such a long history that you have to love it. It’s vintage and cope perfectly with the modern casual styles.

The Chanel classic flap bag is the modern version of the Chanel 2.55 reissue. I don’t think the classic flap bag could have ever exist if it wasn’t the Chanel 2.55 flap bag. A lot of changes have been made in the inside than the outside. Especially the CC locker is so attractive.

The Chanel 2.55 reissue has a rectangular shape lock. It reference Coco Chanel for never marrying and that’s why it’s called the mademoiselle lock.

Throughout the years, the Chanel 2.55 flap bag has been modified. There were different series of the flap bag introduced, which was very confusing until Karl Lagerfeld came along and made a decisive changes that shaped the Chanel classics you recognize today. Since then, only two classic flap bags are being sold:

1. The Chanel reissue 2.55
2. The Chanel classic flap bag

Most members on Bragmybag prefer the Chanel classic flap bag than the reissue 2.55. That doesn’t mean that the Chanel 2.55 reissue is not attractive, but people prefer the modern version. I have no problem of having the 2.55 reissue too.

Let me know which one you love at the comment section and now you are here, why don’t you like our Facebook page to receive the latest information about Chanel.
