Whether you own a couple already or (like me) you've had Chanel's 2.55 flap bag on your to-buy wishlist for a while now (getting the husband on board is proving somewhat of a challenge), a new study released today has given us all yet another reason to purchase the purse.
The study shows that the Chanel 2.55 has increased in value by 70% in the last six years, and is set to continue to increase this coming year.
The iconic style was first released in February of 1955 and was priced at a mere Dhs810. Nowadays, the same bag will easily cost you almost Dhs18,000. Bazaar US reports that the "study confirmed that this makes a Chanel handbag a more sound investment than property in the US."
