The incomparable Coco Chanel famously stated, "A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous." She may well have been describing her eponymous Chanel bags. Embracing a wide range of colors, sizes, leathers, and styles, all Chanel purses are effortlessly fabulous. From the first Chanel handbag debut in 1929, to the iconic classic flap bag reimagined by Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel bags have set the standard for timeless class and sophistication.
Coco Chanel and the company that bears her name have shaped the course of fashion for over 90 years. When the 2.55 Chanel bag was released, it was the first socially acceptable shoulder-worn bag for fashionable women of class and distinction. The shoulder Chanel purse hung from a metal chain and had a simple twist fastener that has come to be known as the Mademoiselle Lock. Today, classic Chanel handbags bear the iconic, interlocking CC emblem for the closure, and the chain that matches the bag's hardware is interlaced with leather matching the bag.

In addition to the classic double flap Chanel bags, the Chanel Boy Bag introduced in 2011 has become popular among devotees. Named for Boy Capel, Coco Chanel's first love, financier, and professional polo player, the Chanel Boy Bag features classic Chanel bag design details in a boxy silhouette style. The recently introduced Chanel 19, named for the year it was introduced — 2019 — has a softer structure and a trio of hardwares.
Chanel bags are crafted from premium leathers like the regal calfskin, buttery soft lambskin, and the gorgeously textured caviar that stands up beautifully to daily use. They are available in a breadth of sizes from the mini to the jumbo, as well as the popular wallet on chain (WOC).
