The lock on Reissue is called Mademoiselle Lock meaning “miss” in French which refers to Ms Coco Chanel never being married. The double chain shoulder strap comes from Ms Coco Chanel’s early experience in an orphanage/convent where kids were locked by two same chains around waists. As to the front compartment, Coco Chanel used it to put her love letters as she was in the orphanage. Amaranth of the middle compartment refers to the color of children’s uniforms in orphanage at that time. In fact, the keepers of orphanages were in black or white. Maybe this is one of the reasons why black and white can be the classical colors of Chanel. Then the back compartment was actually an extra money keeper for Coco Chanel.
