About Chanel
Chanel is a French luxury fashion house founded by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel in 1909. The brand is known for its timeless designs, including the iconic Chanel suit and little black dress. Chanel is also renowned for its handbags, particularly the classic Chanel 2.55 bag. The brand’s collections feature a range of ready-to-wear clothing, accessories, fragrances, and beauty products, all of which are highly coveted by fashion enthusiasts around the world.

What Makes Chanel Luxury Goods So Desirable?

Chanel luxury goods are highly desirable due to their exceptional quality, timeless designs, and iconic status. The brand’s collections are characterized by their classic and sophisticated style, which transcends trends and seasons. Each piece is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, using only the finest materials and techniques. Chanel’s luxury goods are highly sought after by fashion enthusiasts, collectors, and celebrities who appreciate the brand’s iconic status and reputation for excellence.


Luckily, there are a few ways to know if that Chanel is authentic when buying and selling. 


Pay particular attention to the CC logo; the Cs should overlap appropriately, both on the hardware and on the stitched logo.

Your Chanel bag will include a serial number. Take note of this before you buy. Serial stickers were first introduced in 1986 and then discontinued and replaced with metal serial plates in 2021. 

Many Chanel products are originally sold with authenticity cards, however authenticity cards alone are not reliable sources to determine whether your piece is authentic or not as they are effortless to copy and easily interchangeable from one bag to the next.



Chanel bags are known for a high stitch count that preserves their original shape for years to come. Though this can vary with age and style, a general rule of thumb is each diamond quilt should have a minimum of 10+ stitches in it. The diamond quilts should also perfectly align around the whole bag regardless of pockets, seams, or other fabric interruptions.


Chanel is recognized worldwide for its top-notch quality. The designer uses only the best materials and the finest attention to detail when crafting its handbags. Before you buy, take note of the quality. It should feel luxurious to the touch, with flawless stitching and seams and heavy hardware. Vintage models will often feature a small hallmark stamp on the front CC clasp.

Chanel authenticity cards have been originally sold with Chanel handbags and small leather goods since the serial sticker was first introduced in 1986. 

Authenticity cards are counterfeited just as often as handbags themselves. They are also interchangeable and though a seller may present a genuine authenticity card when selling an item, it in no way ensures the item in question is indeed authentic.
