The Chanel 2.55 flap bag is one of the most iconic bags ever made. Created by Gabrielle (Coco) Chanel in February 1955 (thus, the 2.55), its features include a signature quilted, boxy body and double leather-threaded chain straps. The 2.55 is a very recognizable and highly coveted bag. Sixty years after its creation, the Chanel Makeup Creation Studio just launched a limited-edition makeup collection for Spring 2015 – inspired by the leather-braided chain strap of the 2.55.
The collection currently consists of two items: L’Intemorel De Chanel Eyeshadow Palette ($80) and Le Vernis Intemporel Nail Colour ($27). The eyeshadow palette features five luminous shades: yellow, green, black purple and white, all connected by an embossed chain design. The nail polish, Le Vernis, comes in a metallic silver shade (Intemporel) that is meant to represent the shine of the 2.55’s metal chain strap.
