Most people know Chanel for the iconic classic flap bag and their sleek slingback shoes. But Chanel is so much more. Did you know that behind every bag there is a story which takes you through the lavish life of Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel? That every motive and colour are memories of her childhood? When buying a Chanel bag you’re not just paying for the leather and labour, you’re investing in design, art, quality and history!
Here are 10 Chanel bags you should put on your wishlist
1 — Chanel classic flag bag (small)
Obviously I can’t do a top 10 Chanel without including the classic flap. This is a bag which will go with ANY outfit and a bag you will never get tired off. A lot of people will buy this bag thinking that it will only be used for special occasions, but end up using it for every day. I would therefore recommend that you get this bag in grained calfskin (caviar) as it is a much more resilient materiel to scratches and every day wear and tear. This bag does not loose its shape so it does not need special storing or stuffing when not in use!
Price: €4.450 EUR
2 — Rue Cambon Shopper (large)
I Love love love this bag. It is a pain in the arse to get a hold on, but so worth it! This bag is made in canvas and excellent if you’re travelling or a student as has the perfect size and does not get worn out that easily. It looks super chic and laid back!
Note: This is a seasonal bag with seasonal colours which usually comes with the collections launching in May and November!
Price: €3.822 (Price varies depending on style and material)
