Question about the reissue bag

  1. is it identical to the one Coco Chanel first designed in 1955? I remember the SA told me the chains and the turnlock are exactly the same as those she first used. I forgot to ask about other parts of the bag.. anybody?
  2. Yes, The original 2.55 did not have the cc's on it until much later after her death. So the reissue turnlock is what the original one looked like (except the original didn't say "Chanel" on the turnlock) and the Reissue chain is like the original which was in gold. It is reminiscent of the chains placed in the Chanel tweed jackets to ensure they hang properly.
    The reason it is called the 2.55 is because the purse was launched in Feburary 1955. I hope that helps!
