The classic Chanel 2.55 calfskin quilted handbag is the epitome of timeless fashion. I haven’t met a fashionista that doesn’t lust after this or any of Chanel’s quilted bags. Hence, there is that price tag factor that makes it for many just a bit more challenging to acquire. Well, that is unless you have a few thousand dollars sitting under the mattress (if that isn’t a throwback saying) and you are ready to drop it on this beautifully crafted bag. Now sure this coveted Chanel piece is a one of a kind but because of its popularity since forever, it also has been replicated many times over.
Enter current day and if you have done any shopping around, you know this quilted bag has been knocked off by some of the most well-known brands. Perhaps like myself, you will find yourself doing double takes on some of the similarities in design. Of course, this quilted feature has inspired designers to mass produce them in a variety of sizes, colors, styles and cost effective prices (yay for all of us). If you’re looking for an option for day or evening events, you can’t go wrong with this handbag style. It even comes in tote bags sizes which makes this a functional handbag option for the on the go working woman. Fall-Winter 2015 definitely has seen a significant surge in the quilted craze and it has our One Style at a Time seal of approval. Does it have yours?
