The sight of a rainbow in the sky might bring a smile to your face, but just wait until you see a rainbow of Chanel bags. While colorful Chanel bags are clearly easy on the eyes, they are also incredible investment pieces because of their extreme rarity. Chanel’s colors are only produced for one season, and they will never be repeated in the exact same shade, material, shape, and fabrication combination once that shade has sold out. Because of this, colored Chanel bags are much more rare, and usually more valuable than the same style in black.
The one exception to this, however, is red. Chanel actually considers red a classic, core color, along with black, beige, gold, and white. Although Chanel doesn’t always have red options for sale, they have used red as one of their seasonal color-pops in several seasons throughout the 80s, 90s, and 2000s. Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel wore red on her lips every day, so it’s no surprise her signature look remained a signature of her brand as well.
There is a unique opportunity that comes with purchasing a colorful Chanel shade. Despite the fact that the Classic Flap has has been produced in so many different colors and materials, the production quantity of each rendition is actually quite small. Therefore, it is essentially impossible to find the same one at a Chanel boutique, and based on the limited nature of each color, it’s actually possible that we will never have the same shade in stock again. So, if you’re eyeing one of these colored bags, you better act fast.
