Chanel Deauville Totes You’ll Love For Summer

If you’ve followed the blog for a while you know how I feel about investing in designer handbags! Chanel bags have had two price increases in the last six months. I am so thankful I purchased my classic flap bag when I did as it has already increased in value. Lately, I have been shopping for new living room furniture – I purchased a new sofa and media console. Had I known that Chanel was going to increase their prices on July 1st, I would have purchased my dream tote in June.

The price increase isn’t going to deter me from eventually purchasing my dream bag though. I love that Chanel is classic and timeless, especially the gorgeous Deauville tote. It comes in many different colors and sizes. Fashionphile has quite the selection of new and gently used designer totes! Did you know that they carry new handbags as well? Here are a few gorgeous new Chanel Deauville tote bags I am coveting this summer and will adore for years to come.

Friends, I am officially obsessed with this beautiful CHANEL Straw Raffia Calfskin Chain Medium Deauville Tote in beige in black. It’s from the 2021 collection and is an absolute dream! I love everything about it, especially the chain detailing. This beautiful bag is ideal for women of all ages and is one that you will pass from generation to generation.
