Chanel Coco Handle Review
A small Coco handle was one of the two purses I purchased in store. I adore structured bags that have a strap, so as soon as I saw it, I fell in love with the trapezoid shape.
As I prefer unique bags that are not often seen, I love the fact that while this purse is Chanel, it’s not a Classic Flap. Apart from its another big advantage is that Coco Handle is not as expensive as the classic line. The prices start at $4,800, unlike Classic Flaps moving closer and closer to 5 digits.
Even though I enjoyed this purse for a year, I eventually sold it.After all, I came to the conclusion that I need a larger version. I’m still eyeing a Large Coco Handle in green caviar.
Chanel Coco Handle Alternatives
When it comes to designer handbags, you can rely on finding a few items from other luxury brands that are similar to the item in question. Here are a few similar handbags from Louis Vuitton, Dior, Gucci and Hermes.
Gucci Sylvie Top Handle Bag
Featuring a very similar silhouette, Gucci Sylvie is a top handle purse introduced a few years back. Available in several sizes, it is a perfect – and more affordable – alternative to Chanel Coco Handle. The only flaw is a non-detachable shoulder strap.
Louis Vuitton Croisette Crossbody Bag
If you’re into smaller handbags and considering a mini/small version of Coco Handle, you opt for a Louis Vuitton Croisette instead. This cute crossbody was released in brown and white checkered canvases (Damier Ebene/Damier Azur) canvas.
Hermes Kelly Bag
This timeless classic from a renowned French brand is an obvious alternative to Coco Handle, or – better said – inspiration. With its trapezoid shape and a detachable strap, this is the classiest top handle purse even made almost a century ago.
That was a thorough review of Chanel Coco Handle bag. We totally loved it, do you?
