Chanel 2.55 Bag Look4Less

Whether your into fashion or not the Chanel 2.55 bag is most likely instantly recognisable to you.In the early 1920s, Coco Chanel became frustrated with having to carry her handbags in her arms. Coco then decided to create a handbag that allowed her to use her arms freely. The Chanel 2.55 was inspired by straps found on the soldier's bags. Over the years this original bag has evolved into the Chanel 2.55 that we all know and love today. This bag is most definitely on my buy before I die list.


The Chanel 2.55 is available for €3010 from Brown Thomas or any other major designer department store. But if your budget doesn't quite stretch to that you could always just pick up one of the hundreds of copies on the highstreet. One of these copies is this bag that I found on Asos, available for just €22.22
If that alternative is not to your liking how about this quilted bag from Forever21 that costs €23.90
