Brand History & Legacy

Price of Chanel Handbags in South Africa

Chanel has a rich history of designing some of the most iconic designer handbags of all time. It all began when Coco Chanel created the first ultra-iconic 2.55 prototype. Since then, women across the world have been lusting after these coveted Chanel handbags. Famed by media with appearances in movies like Breakfast at Tiffany’s and loved even by royals (Princess Diana was a huge fan!) – Chanel handbags are more than just fashion pieces. Chanel also provides its owner with investment value and social status. It’s easy to understand the price tag the brand carries. We thought it would be a good idea to give you an estimate of how much some of our favourite Chanel handbags are valued at internationally.

1. Chanel 2.55 Shoulder Bag Medium (from approx. R92,000.00)

Chanel 2.55 Shoulder Bag Price The iconic 2.55 Shoulder Bag is the first one on our list because it was the first Chanel handbag ever designed! Being one of the most popular designer handbags of all time, this bag features the famous Chanel flap and quilted leather.

2. Chanel Boy Bag Medium (from approx. R75,000.00)

Chanel Boy Bag Price While the Chanel Boy bag was only introduced in 2011, it has successfully managed to win over the hearts of women around the world! The bag has a romantic story behind it, being named after Coco’s lover Arthur Chapel, whose nickname was “Boy”. With its structured and minimalist look, we’re confident that this will be a favourite for long to come.

3. Chanel Flap Bag Medium (from approx. R77,000.00)

Chanel Flap Bag Price Many people mistake the Flap bag as Chanel’s first creation – that’s the kind of influence that this bag has had on handbag style around the world. However, the iconic Flap bag was only introduced in 1983 by Karl Lagerfeld. The Chanel Classic Flap bag is instantly recognisable by its double CC turn-style lock instead of a rectangular one. The bag is available in four sizes.

It’s finished off with the iconic CC logo embossed in the front.

5. Chanel Wallet on Chain Lambskin (from approx. R39,000.00)
