55 definitely happens to be one of them.
In fact, it is that one bag which created a revolution in the world of handbags, and changed people's mindset on how handbags and purses could be manufactured.
This particular bag was invented by Coco Chanel herself, with just one basic thought in mind - to create a bag that would help free a woman's hands, and would at the same time fit all her necessary things and be comfortable to carry.
She added a double chain shoulder strap to the bag for that purpose.
The unique design of the bag which looks like quilted diamonds was actually inspired from the coats that jockeys used to wear.
Till date, this design is extremely famous and is used in a number of Chanel bags.
Also known as the classic flap bag, the Chanel 2.
55 is loved by almost every woman on this planet.
It was invented in February 1955, and thus it was named 2.
55 after its invention date.
There is a large exterior pocket on the bag for bigger things, while the interior pockets are perfect for keeping items such as lipsticks.
The CC logo, which acted as a monogram as well as the clasp for the bag was the idea of Karl Lagerfeld, somewhere in the 1980s.
Since then, practically anything that has the CC logo on it has become a style statement for a woman.
The vintage Chanel 2.
55 is available in many different sizes and colours.
