For a while now, the Chanel Coco Handle has held a spot on my wishlist. Its elegance, so reminiscent of the Chanel Classic Flap, has always captivated me. So, you can understand my sheer joy when my Chanel SA informed me about a new arrival—a light pink Chanel Coco Handle from the Chanel 22P collection.
This bag is more than just a fashion accessory; it’s a statement piece that perfectly complements my style. Now, I can’t contain my excitement as I welcome this exquisite piece into my collection. Make sure to keep reading as I share my honest review of the Chanel Coco Handle.
My honest review
Named after Chanel’s founder, the Coco Handle Bag was first introduced in 2017. Since then, the Coco Handle has gained immense popularity and is now offered each season. Critics have compared the Coco Handle Bag to the Hermès Kelly.
The bag includes:
- A single top handle.
- A front flap similar to the Chanel Classic Flap Bag.
- A trapezoid top paired with the interlocking CC closure.
- Removable shoulder strap.
I love this bag because it has some elements of the Chanel Classic Flap, but it has its own unique design elements: the trapezoid shape and top handle. Depending on your outfit or mood, you can carry the Coco Handle by hand, cross-body, or on your shoulder. This is a differentiator from most Chanel bags, as you have more than one option to wear it.
The Chanel Coco Handle comes in four sizes: Mini, Small, Medium, and Large. For a more detailed overview of each size, I’ve included the dimensions of each below (Source: Chanel.com)
