The Secrets of the Handbag – Part 3

In the last part of my series on the Secrets of the Handbag exhibit (if I can’t get a hold of that fabulous video!) I’ve scanned the program that they were giving out to attendees.  The info details the seven steps to constructing the Chanel 2.55 handbag and the history of the bag.

San Francisco Exhibit: Discover the Secrets of the Handbag

When I received information last week about a Chanel handbag exhibit in San Francisco my day was made.  Usually the really good events are reserved for NY but once in a while, San Francisco gets a taste of the glamorous life.

This coming weekend Chanel San Francisco is hosting Les Secrets Du Sac, The Secrets of the Handbag, an exhibit exploring the iconic Chanel 2.55 Handbag.  The presentation will include bags from the Parisian archives, as well as bags from the new collections.  I will definitely be there – I’m not sure they’ll allow pictures but I will let you know how it is regardless.  I can’t wait!  For more information on the history of the 2.55 bag and how to spot a fake check out a previous post.
