WHY WE LOVE CHANEL BAGS!
In the last 50 years Chanel handbags have become truly iconic. Despite going through a brief period of having slipped out of favour in the fashion industry, the appointment of Karl Lagerfeld as creative director in the 1980s breathed new life into the fledgling luxury brand, and a new era of Chanel was ushered in. Lagerfeld’s unique ability to follow his own vision whilst still maintaining the simplistic yet elegant essence of the woman and the brand itself, helped Chanel grow into the pinnacle of luxury it is today. Its elegant designs which nod to the past whilst keeping fashion– forward have helped them dominate the luxury handbag space, including in the pre–owned luxury market. In 1955, Coco Chanel introduced the 2.55 flap, a revolutionary style which was to change the face of fashion forever. Inspired by her mission to create wearable yet sophisticated designs, the bag featured an adjustable chain strap, flap opening, and the iconic Mademoiselle turn–lock. Karl Lagerfeld went on to update the original design with an interwoven leather and chain strap and CC turn–lock closure, creating the Classic Flap we see today. The epitome of luxury, the Classic Flap has now since become synonymous with the brand and is highly in demand in the pre–owned Chanel bag market. Available in both double or single flap styles, demand for both has continued to grow, and with price increases as frequent as twice a year, it is very possible that one day your Chanel bag could be worth more in the resale market than you paid for it, when bought either second hand or new. A Chanel Classic Flap is certainly a smart investment to make in your handbag collection.
But the Classic Flap is not the only bag to be revered. Introduced in 2011, the Chanel Boy – inspired by the nickname of Coco Chanel’s lover, Arthur ’Boy’ Capel – has become one of the most sought–after Chanel styles. Featuring straight lines surrounding diamond quilted leather, and a rectangular push clasp with the classic CC logo, the bag takes on a more masculine and edgier feel to its 2.55 predecessor, making it a cult favourite particularly among the younger market. The bag has been made in various sizes and materials, with limited editions being released throughout the years to the delight of many dedicated bag collectors. So successful is the ’Boy’ design that its features have emerged in other styles including totes, clutches, and wallets on chains. Indeed, Chanel’s bags have timeless appeal thanks to their distinct features which make them instantly recognisable to buyers looking for a second hand Chanel bag. Along with the Chanel Classic Flap and Boy, and the revival of the 2.55 in the Reissue 2.55, styles such as the Gabrielle Hobo, Grand Shopping Tote, and Wallet on Chain have emerged as buyer favourites in the past few years. Furthermore, vintage Chanel styles with the signature aesthetic of diamond quilted leather, CC turn–locks, and interwoven leather and gold tone or silver hardware chains are experiencing strong demand from buyers looking to add elegant vintage flair to their handbag collections.
