Meet the Chanel 2.55's younger sibling

There's a new Chanel bag on the block and it's vying to be the next classic with its timeless shape and design. Get up to speed with the latest Chanel 19 bag with these quick facts.


It's the younger sibling of the iconic Chanel 2.55 handbag

Similar to its iconic predecessor, the Chanel 2.55 (which was introduced in February 1955), the number 19 in its name signifies the year it was introduced ie. 2019. Like the 2.55, the Chanel 19 is a structured rectangular flap bag.


Size matters


Power of three



The most interesting detail about the bag would have to be the metal chain strap which comes in three finishes and weights. Gold chain links interlaced with leather, then successively to silver, aged gold and ruthenium.



Maximum impact

The interlocking double C clasp is a signature of all Chanel bags. To highlight this ultra modern silhouette, the iconic CC clasp is reimagined in an XL format.
