3 Iconic Bags and 3 Trending Bags
Without a doubt, there are 3 handbags that are the best investments of all times. They are Chanel Reissue 2.55 Bag, Chanel Classic Flap Bag and Chanel Classic Boy Bag.
The Reissue 2.55 Bag was created by the original founder while the Classic Flap Bag is designed by Karl Lagerfeld. And even tough the Classic Boy Bag is not as old as the other two, but its fame is evenly matched.
Then there are 3 others that are quite fresh yet has become incredible famous in such a short amount of time. It’s the Chanel Trendy CC Bag, Deauville Bag and the Coco Handle Bag.
The Deauville Bag is launched in 2013, Trendy CC Bag was released in 2015 and the Coco Handle was available in late 2015. These are the trending handbags right now and everyone wants a piece of it. I think the Coco Handle Bag is currently the most famous one, but Chanel has recently announced that they won’t be selling exotic leathers anymore, which means that the Lizard Handle will be discontinued and replaced with other leathers.
So here’s the question; if we compare the prices of these 6 handbags between the year 2015 and 2019, which Chanel Bag is the best investment? Which handbag gave you the highest return of your money?
Investing In Chanel Iconic Bags
Let’s take a look at the following handbags:
- Chanel M/L Classic Flap Bag
- Chanel Reissue 2.55 Bag (medium size: 225)
- Chanel Old Medium Classic Boy Bag
The prices of the Classic Flap Bag and the Reissue 2.55 Bag are the same. So we are going to put them into one basket. We’re just going to feature the Classic Flap Bag, but the results are the same for the Reissue 2.55 Bag
The prices are in euros and we did our best to find the latest prices in 2015, comparing them with 2019. With no surprise, the Chanel Classic Flap Bag increased significantly. The Chanel Classic Boy Bag also jumped in price, but not as much as the Classic Flap Bag.
Investing in stocks and properties are great investments. But purchasing lower-end handbags will end up with no value. Therefore, purchasing designer handbags is also a good way to diversify your portfolio. They not only keep in value, but also increase in value over time. This also depends on the condition of the bag of course. But if you would sell an used Chanel Old Medium Boy Bag from 2015 with some minor user damages, it will not be hard to sell for €3100 euro today.
Investing In Chanel Trending Bags
Now let’s take a look at the next handbags:
- Chanel Medium Coco Handle Bag (With Lizard Handle)
- Chanel Medium Trendy CC Bag
- Chanel Large Deauville Bag
The original Coco Handle Bag was not designed with calfskin handle, but in Lizard Handle. The Trendy CC Bag became the #1 must-have handbag after it was first-released. The Deauville Bag slowly increased in fame throughout the years, maybe it was a new design and Chanel fans needed to grow into the style. But today, the Deauville is one of the most hunted handbags in high fashion.
In the previous chapter, we have shared the prices in euro’s. The Chanel Deauville Bag went up the highest (maybe there is a trend here, the more expensive the bag becomes, the more we want it). The Coco Handle Bag jumped by 50% in just a few years, outperforming the Classic Flap Bag and the Boy Bag. Now that’s a good return. So which handbag did you purchased?
