It would not be an overstatement to say that Chanel designer handbags are some of the most beautiful bags that there are. But what about the designer that graced this world with these beautiful bags. Here is a little history of Madame Chanel. Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel was born as Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel in 1883. It was Coco Chanel that brought the material jersey to the fashion world by using it for womenswear. She wove class and elegance into practical designs.It is this simplicity of design that also goes into Chanel designer handbags.
In 1909, Gabrielle Chanel opened her first shop on the ground floor of Étienne Balsan’s apartment in Paris and featured her own designs. This humble beginning would later grow into one of the largest and greatest design empires in the world. Gabrielle Chanel passed away in 1971 but her designs live on for all time.
When you decide to buy a Chanel handbag, you want the real thing not a copy or an imitation passing as the real thing. You want the quality and workmanship that the Chanel name projects. So how can you tell if your Chanel designer handbag is authentic? For one thing, Chanel uses only the highest quality of calfskin on her handbags instead of lambskin. Another point to notice is that Chanel handbags are made in Italy instead of France. Also, one can usually tell with designer handbags by the authenticity numbers if a designer handbag is fake or not but this is not the case with the Chanel designer handbags as counterfeiters have wised up to this and now include the numbers in their fakes.
Avoid the sites that offer Chanel handbags as a one day sale. These are fakes. Compare online the lining, stitches, color of the bag and the material used to the site you are planning to buy from. Chanel only uses the smooth calfskin and the Chanel caviar leather for the construction of the bag. Do your research and you won’t be scammed into buying a fake bag. Make sure that the seller offers a refund policy. If you can prove that the bag is a fake, they have to return your money. Selling counterfeit goods is a crime so if you find a seller that has these, report them to the Better Business Bureau.
Chanel designer handbags never come with a dog tag or separate coin purse. The COCO CABA bag is the exception to this rule. Purchase your handbag online with a credit card because credit cards come with a buyer protection plan. They will assist you with a refund if necessary. Ask the seller tons of questions to make sure that you are getting a real Chanel handbag.You don’t want to pay a lot for a designer handbag that’s going to fall apart before a year’s time. It’s your money that you are spending so you should get the real bag that you want. You deserve the best. You want a Chanel designer handbag and the dignity and prestige that goes along with that brand.
