Chanel 2.55 Reissue Flap Bag Size Guide
May 31, 2020
Chanel enthusiasts name Chanel 2.55 Reissue differently. Some call it Chanel 2.55 or 255, some call it with the term Reissue and some call it without. They all refer to Chanel 2.55 Flap Bag. Chanel 2.55 Reissue should be only referring to Chanel 2.55 that were produced in year 2005, which marked the 50 anniversary from the year Chanel Mademoiselle Flap Bag was first introduced in February 1955 (hence the name 2.55!). However, today, the term Reissue is widely used for this bag model regardless of the year of production.
It is interesting to find out how Chanel 2.55 Reissue Flap Bag of different sizes look on a same silhouette of 165cm/5’5″. No matter what size it is, Chanel 2.55 Reissue is attractive and always the best match to almost all occasions, formal or casual. Unfortunately, Chanel 2.55 Reissue 228 was discontinued thus you can only purchase it from the resale market if that is the size that you sought after.
