COLORED CHANEL BAGS ARE ALWAYS VERY COLLECTABLE AND GENERALLY MORE RARE
BECAUSE CHANEL IS VERY SEASONAL WITH COLOR CHOICES AND THEY ARE HARDLY
EVER REPEATED. ANYTHING THAT IS NOT BLACK OR CREAM IS RARE AND VERY DESIRED.
BLACK USED ON VINTAGE BAGS IS A MUCH SOFTER BLACK THAN THE NEW BAGS. THEY
PICK UP BOTH BLACK AND NAVY TONES CAUSED BY THE NATURAL, BERRY-BASED DYE
USED ON THE LAMBSKIN AT THE TIME.
ITALIAN MADE CHANEL USUALLY MEANS IT IS A PRE-1985 CHANEL BUT THIS IS NOT
ALWAYS THE CASE, AS CHANEL TODAY PRODUCES AND SOURCES ITALIAN LEATHER
DEPENDING ON THE STYLE OF THE BAG. LOOK AT DESIGN DETAILS (HARDWARE, LABEL,
TASSEL, ETC.) TO CORRECTLY DATE. HARDWARE WITHOUT A MARK INDICATES ITALIAN
PRODUCTION, WHILE HARDWARE WITH A MARK DENOTES MADE IN FRANCE.
