The 5 Chanel Bags That Make The Best Investment
Is there any handbag more iconic than a Chanel bag? We don’t think so. It's no secret that when it comes to investment designer bags, there are certain brands that reign supreme. Of course, there’s Hermès and Louis Vuitton, but at the top of the list is also Chanel, with its classic quilted handbags topping the list of fashion’s most wanted and enduring pieces.
Reaffirming this belief, the luxury website Mislux has just released its report of the 5 Chanel bags that retain the highest percentage of its original retail price. The luxury retailer comprised its data from various second-hand websites such as Rebag and The Real Real in order to find the top Chanel purchases. In simpler terms, these are the bags that are being sold on the resale market for almost as much as the original price.
So before you go making your next designer bag purchase, scroll down below to find the five Chanel bags to invest in now.
No.5 - Chanel Deauville Tote
The Deauville bag is one of the roomiest styles in Chanel's history. With plenty of space for the many necessities women carry on a daily basis, this bag is as practical as it is chic and has a much more relaxed appearance than your typical Chanel style.
No.4 - Chanel CC Filigree Vanity Case
Introduced in Chanel's S/S16 Airline Collection as the ultimate travel companion, the Vanity Case was inspired by classic 1950/60s train cases. One of the most in-demand styles still today, this bag provides a medium-sized, structured leather pouch that is meant to be toted over the shoulder or across the chest. A rarer piece to find on the market, this classic item is a true investment style.
No.3 - Chanel 19 Bag
While the Chanel Deauville is an It-girl favourite, and the 2.55 is a timeless classic, we like to this of the single-flap 19 crossbody bag as the 2.55’s cooler, younger sister. Created as a homage to the Chanel 2.55, the Chanel 19 was also named after the year of its design and features the brand’s signature quilted fabrication. Making history already, the 19 happens to be one of the last bags to debut under the creative direction of Karl Lagerfeld, as it was first launched on the A/W 19 runway just weeks after he passed.
No.2 - Chanel 2.55 Reissue
The 2.55 is called a classic for a reason - it's a simple statement in everyone's closets, and is recognised as one of the most coveted bag styles in the world. When you think of a Chanel bag, or see one on the arm of a celeb, there's a good chance it's the 2.55.
No.1 - Chanel Classic Flap 系列
This classic flap bag is also referred to as the 11.12. The change came after Karl Lagerfeld updated the 2.55 in the 1980s, staying true to the original form while giving it a decadent flair signature of that decade. The most noticeable change came in the form of the updated lock - which now features the iconic CC that we have since come to know and love.
