Something on the Vintage Chanel Handbags

Nobody can say that there is the same quality with the Chanel handbags. Although thousands of replicas have been marketed at a fraction of the price, the house of Chanel has remained a leader in the fashion  industry. The Chanel handbags can be extremely rewarding in terms of style. They have stood the test of time. The following is a little information on the Chanel handbags. I hope you will like it.
Coco Chanel's passion was to reinvent style. When she retired from the fashion industry in 1939, nobody expected she would ignite it again at the age of 71. However, she did just that with the launch of her quilted handbag in 1955. The handbag had a feature of a long chain strap that could be slung over the shoulder for convenience. According to a collaborative article by Kim Castle, David and Jay Kubassek Chanel's chain strap gave women a sense of empowerment and freedom. Because they had to continue to hold onto the cumbersome straps of the common purse for longer. Chanel's handbag was well- known as the Chanel 2.55 that had been aptly named for the month and year after it was introduced.
Whether it's the red caviar shoulder bag or a black classic two-way clutch, if you want to invest in a vintage Chanel handbag, you can run anywhere from $600 to $4,000 and even more, but depending on the condition and style. According to Auction Genius, there are features of the telltale signs of genuine workmanship on the inside of an authentic Chanel handbag. Authentic label designs include an embossed Chanel logo, a rectangular label with the Chanel logo in gold or silver or an oval label with the embossed Chanel label. If a Chanel handbag does not have a label on the inside, it is undoubtedly a copy.
