The going price for a small coco handle right now, even for caviar leather, is $5,600 which seems high to me. With the continuous price increases and no apparent increase in quality, it's becoming harder to justify a Chanel purchase as much as I like the brand. For a couple thousand more, you can find a good quality Kelly which will last for quite a while. Am I the only one in this camp? I long for the days when Chanel used 24k gold plating and actually stood behind the quality of its brand. Nowadays, I gravitate more toward Hermes, Delvaux, and Moynat because their products stand the test of time and price increases are more modest.
