How it all started  

First of all, we totally understand that not everyone is willing or able to pay about thousands of euros for a bag! It's a lot of money, especially for a bag. But there is also a good side to a high price, not everyone can buy the bag. This makes your bag even more unique. And with that, Chanel is becoming more and more exclusive.

The story of the Chanel Flap Bag begins in February 1955. Chanel has been making handbags for about 25 years, but the new bag was different. As a fashion brand, Chanel has always stood for comfort, so Coco decided to create a bag that allows women to keep their hands free while carrying a bag. Before the 1950s, women usually carried the bags in their hands, this was the first time they could carry their bags on their shoulders. This bag was named Chanel 2.55 and is named after the date of creation: 2 for February and 55 for the year 1955. Do you want to read everything about the beautiful history of the bag?

The Chanel Classic Flap Bag is one of the most iconic and beautiful bags we have ever seen. The bag literally never gets old. In addition, the bag is very expensive, but people continue to buy this bag. But why are they doing this? Of course the bag is beautiful, but probably also because the bag is worth more over the years. In 1955 you could buy the original Chanel 2.55 for $220! Today, a Chanel 2.55 costs about $7000 dollars. The value of this bag continues to rise. If you want to know more about the Chanel price increase in July 2021, we have also written a blog about this.

Four price increases per year

Four times a year Chanel raises their prices. This makes your bag worth more every year, which is why investing in a classic flap bag is very interesting. They increase the prices of the most popular bags, including the Chanel Classic Flap Bag, unfortunately ... 

If you find buying a brand new Chanel bag too expensive, then a vintage bag might be the best solution for you. The prices of the Classic Chanel bags on the vintage market are also rising. The reason for this? That's easy: there is a high demand and purchase prices are rising. We know it sounds cheesy, but take it from us: now is the best time to invest in a Chanel bag, as prices will continue to rise every year.
