Chanel handbags are the gold standard of luxury fashion, they are also a sound financial investment. Chanel have intelligently created two lines, the classics and the seasonal. The classical line protects the value of your handbag year after year, it simply doesn’t go out of style. As for those that are searching for something more playful and current there are the seasonal styles to whet their appetites.
