The Chanel Flap Bag was first introduced in 1955 and cost $220. In 2020, the same style will set you back $5,500. Any dedicated followers of fashion will know that Chanel is not only timeless in style, but a great investment too.
If you can find an immaculate vintage Chanel, you’ll not only discover that the style and quality is the same as the current season bags (in some case, better!) but you’ll see a significant difference in the price tag.
Chanel increase their prices annually and in the past year, the Classic Small Flap bag has gone from €4,550 to €5,500!
Sadly, we’re not all blessed with the bank balance to accommodate such a big purchase but if you’re looking for Chanel bag with timeless appeal – check out this little treasure that recently landed at Grace & Ted…
In buttery soft lambskin leather, it features not one but TWO iconic CC turn locks and a woven leather and chain strap which means there’s no mistaking this beauty.
Dated 1989, this bag is in immaculate condition for its age, only showing faint signs of wear beneath the flap and inside. Compact but still spacious enough for your essentials, it is almost exactly the same size as the Chanel Classic Lambskin Handbag, currently available new for £4,820. This one though, can be yours for £2,500.
Invest in vintage and you won’t only save money but you’ll discover the pieces you will cherish forever.
