Chanel is known for its elegant and classic designs. Their excellent craftsmanship and the iconic interlocking double C logo makes them one of the most popular and coveted luxury brands in the world.
However, for a person saving up to make their first big purchase, the array of choices can make selecting the right bag very difficult. No one wants to splurge on a luxury item only for it to go out of style in two years. Luckily, Chanel designs are made to last, although some are better than others. Here are our top 5 picks for the best investment Chanel bags.
The ultimate classic, this is the very first shoulder bag Chanel designed. Not only does it have the history of being an original, but it also raises the bar with its quilted leather exterior, a look which is now synonymous with the word “Chanel.” Gorgeous, but tastefully understated, this bag is a must for any Chanel lover.
A close second is the Chanel Flap. Extremely popular for its double CC lock, this reinterpretation of the Chanel 2.55 is a stunning investment piece. Coming in 4 different sizes, you can select with one suits you best.
If you are looking for something exceptional, keep an eye out for limited edition designs. There is a high chance the value of such bags will rise significantly once they sell out, leaving you with a lot of options should you choose to sell it in a couple of years.
3.Chanel Bowling Bag
This bag was released in 2018, and while its staying power has not been decided yet, there is no denying this bag is a chic fashion statement. Roomy design with a slightly masculine vibe, it is perfect for people who are on the go.
4.Chanel Wallet on a Chain
Wildly versatile, this bag, also known as the WOC, is a true chameleon. You can wear it crossbody, on the shoulder, as a messenger bag, or even as a clutch. Coming in a wide array of colors and finishes, the stunning WOC is an excellent choice for buyers with a busy lifestyle. It can take you from a boardroom meeting all the way to after-dinner drinks.
5.Chanel Boy Bag
A recent addition in 2011, this bag has shown its ability to stay relevant. Structured, boxy, and minimalist, it is a tom-boy cousin of the Chanel flap. One thing to keep in mind is that this bag, while very well made, does have the habit of sagging at the bottom with use, so take care not to stuff it to the bursting.
While Chanel’s designs are all timeless, these are the bags we believe will be the best investments. All of the bags listed either have a long history behind them or impeccable design. We hope this helped you pick the luxury bag of your dreams.
