Coco Chanel revolutionized the world of high fashion (haute couture) and everyday fashion (prêt-à-porter) by replacing the opulent, over-designed, and cumbersome clothing of her time with garments that are both functional and flattering to a woman's figure. She was the first couturier to create a fringy tweed jacket, fashionable women’s pantsuit, and her iconic little black dress. Chanel became particularly known for her 2.55 double-flap leather handbag, first introduced to the public on February 5th, 1955. Fun fact: the first Chanel 2.55 double flap leather bag retailed for $220. Vintage 2.55 handbag models also featured real gold in the chain and hardware!
