RARE vintage Accessory Week Continues! More Chanel!

Chanel Q & A:

Q: Can you go wrong with investing in a Chanel accessory?
A:  Is this a trick question?

Let's look over the facts:  Mademoiselle designed the first quilted leather 2.55 bag in February 1955And fifty five years later the 2.55 has, radically, remained a constant for the House of Chanel.  The brilliant-ness of Karl is that he takes what is familiar about Chanel and reinterprets it in new and completely unexpected ways.  Would Mademoiselle have envisioned the quilted bag as a wide corset belt with gold hearts dangling from it?  I imagine that she may have.  We have to give Coco Chanel credit for reopening her house in 1953 and despite everyone predicting doom, she revived the House and went on to dress sexy young girls like Romy Schneider.  So,  no you can not go wrong with investing in Chanel accessoires.

This belt is very wicked jolie Madame.  It cinches the waist in Chanel's signature quilted lambskin leather and has dangling whimsical locks of love hearts with jeweled red centers.  Definitely a must-have for any collector and lover of Chanel!
