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."

Unsurprisingly, the study showed that all Chanel handbags shared this same quality, meaning that no matter which version of the interlocking C's you purchase, it's a very stable (and sartorially fabulous) investment. - Maddison Glendinning
