Oh Coco we adore you - The Chanel Coco Handle Bag
What do you get when the Chanel Classic Flap marries the Hermes Kelly?
Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the Chanel Coco Handle. First introduced to the Chanel family in 2015, the Coco Handle has the divine trapezoid shape, rigid top handle and detachable cross body chain making it the perfect combination of elegance and practicality.
Why do we love it so?
It OOZES Chanel...with the diamond quilted plush leather, interlocking CC clasp, the classic flap detail that we love, the Coco Handle features so many quintessential elements that we associate with Chanel.
It's fresh and modern...the trapezoid shape is unique within the Chanel collections, and we are here for that! Whilst the CF will always be in our hearts, we love the distinctive design. The top handle is super structured and stays up when the bag isn't being held, giving the bag that 'Kelly' vibe.
The top handle and cross body also makes this bag oh so VERSATILE! It's the literal definition of 'day-to-night' bag. Need practicality during the day? She's got you covered with the cross body. Want elegance at night? Detach the strap and you've got the perfect evening bag!
Finally....the price! Considerably better value than the classic flaps, the Coco Handle price point remains excellent, despite recent price hikes, and prices are not extortionate on the resale market. Our beautiful Coco Handle is the medium size in black caviar with aged gold hardware. Priced at £4950, this is certainly 20-25% less that a classic flap with the same detailing.
So....what do you think? Are you ready to go loco for Coco? Or are you remaining true to the classic flap. Let us know in the comments!
