Since opening the doors of its first boutique in Paris in 1909, the house of Chanel still remains as one of the most iconic luxury brands of the century, as well as becoming one of the most sought-after brands for vintage handbags due to their high-quality design, their classic look and their long-lasting lifespan.

This Chanel 2011 limited edition bag is made from black alligator and consists of a clasp embellished with 18kt white gold and diamonds. The handle is also made from alligator and the bag itself is said to be in excellent condition with the original box and purchase invoice of the owner. This unique treasure trove has a starting bid of £60,000.

The sophistication is what makes this handbag so remarkable: its diamond-encrusted Chanel insignia and shiny alligator surface scream luxury and taste, though the earthy dark brown colour and structured shape redeems its classical and understated look.

The timeless elegance of this handbag is second to none, so dig deep into your pockets and invest in this once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of the most extraordinary Chanel handbags ever to be made.

Auction ends on the 31st July 2018.
