Chanel 2.55 Classic Flap Bag
Can someone please tell me if this is a picture of Chanel's 2.55 bag?

Thanks,
Maxi

Why don't you order a Chanel catalogue? They will have the names of the bags. I have the Chanel Jewelry catalogue as a coffee table book because the pictures are gorgeous.

(800) 550-0005 it's customer service but ask and they'll get a catalogue to you in like 2-3 days.

That is the classic Chanel flap bag w/chain strap. As far as the 2.55--I believe that is just the size, there are other numbers that represent other sixes, I think. I may be wrong though. 2.55 is the medium and most popular size.

Isn't 2.55 representative of the date the bag was launched - Febraury 1955?

I only posted the pink because that is the only pic I could find. If I had to choose a color, well, I don't really know what color I'd get. Probably black (or red) as they could be carried all year long. I bet the black and white tweed is nice, however, I have seen other tweeds and didn't like them as much as the leather bags.

I "really" wish I lived near a store so I could see them in person .

I had my hopes on getting the Chanel multipocket bag or the 2.55. I wanted the multipocket one since it first came out but got side tracked with the whole Balenciaga and paddington craze :p

Which do you think I should get? I cant afford both right now either!
