Coco Crazy!

June 19, 2008

I find Chanel bags to be the ultimate in sophistication and utterly chic, so when I found out that our staff was aiming to pull off the event of the season, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the merchandise list. Close to 200 authentic Chanel bags at sweet deals, some limited edition and nearly impossible to find? Now that’s a reason to shop online.

Chanel is somewhat of a different breed from other brands–While celebrities usually vie to get their hands on the newest models or anointed “it” bags of the season, with Chanel, they often rely on the black quilted flap bag to get from A to B.  Why? Honestly, the classic design will never go out of style, and it signals a sort of understated elegance that no other handbag can touch. The flap bags are truly quintessential Chanel, and we have a selection that feature the signature double chain strap, interlocking CC closure and diamond-stitched, quilted leather. Did you know the design of this bag hasn’t changed in 30 years?
But if you’re looking for something slightly out of the ordinary that still has all the Chanel hallmarks, look no further than this Limited Edition Gold Metallic Lambskin Leather Mother & Daughter Twinny bag.  The featured product in the 1995 holiday season ad campaign, it was only available in the global Chanel boutiques to VIP customers, and was never on the shelf.  The New York store received only 10 of these bags, and ours (in pristine condition!) could be the best example in existence. The bags are sold clipped together, but apart, you have day and night perfectly covered.
If you don’t want to get ahead of yourself, let me explain what you’ll be seeing in the days to come. Our first week will feature groupings of Patent Leather, Metallics, Unique/One-of-a-kind and Vintage bags that will be hard to resist. Even if you partake, I’m sure you’ll also be looking forward to week two, spotlighting weekend and travel bags. Who isn’t looking for the perfect carryall for chic weekends out of town this summer?
Even if you aren’t considered a VIP at the global Chanel stores, you are definitely one for the next two weeks at Portero. Click here to get straight to the handbags. Happy shopping!
