With a natural born rebel at its helm since 1909, it’s no surprise that Chanel has led the designer handbag revolution for over a century, creating iconic, highly crafted products that much like the life of its founder, have bypassed convention and cultivated a fiercely loyal following. Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel grew up in an orphanage run by nuns, sang cabaret and remained scandalously single throughout her lifetime, but what she did end up transforming was the clothing and handbag industry for women forever by popularizing a previously unacceptable item in their form fitting, corset-laden wardrobes: Pants. Yes, pants. If you can’t imagine life without them (seriously, how can you?), you have Chanel to thank. With her resistance to fashion norms of the era, she liberated her female counterparts and contemporaries through clothing. Chanel soon became the most sought after brand in France for comfortable, yet flattering clothing for women. Her classic tweed suit and No.5 perfume, which Marilyn Monroe famously declared as the only thing she wore to bed, became staples in every woman’s beauty arsenal. The fashion house was about to change the game once again, this time for luxury handbags. In 1955, Chanel debuted the iconic 2.55 Flap handbag. Made of plush, quilted leather with a double-chain shoulder strap, and a gold interlocked CC logo introduced in the 1980s by infamous Chanel head designer Karl Lagerfeld, this luxury handbag and its many reincarnations have been coveted by women everywhere since they first came on the scene. Since the 2.55, Chanel’s following has reached cult status with every new addition, from the Grand Shopping Tote, Wallet on Chain, Cerf Executive Tote and the highly sought after Chanel Boy Bag, all of which you can buy and sell online. When you carry a Chanel bag, you’re making a statement. It’s a timeless, sophisticated investment that holds its value on the resale market, especially if it’s in excellent condition.
