Many members of the luxe community have expressed concern lately that they are being priced out of Chanel. Naturally, that got us thinking. After a bit of investigation (and our own wishlist additions) we’ve identified bags that will surely make your heart and wallet sing.
We present to you 6 Chanel handbags under $6,000! Interested? Let’s take a peek.
Chanel 22 Bag
The newest addition to the House of Coco has everyone talking. The Chanel 22 is the luxury brand’s take on minimalist elegance meets casual trendiness. Available in three sizes, and a healthy dose of different colors, the Chanel 22 bag is the perfect way to incorporate a little bit of luxe into your every day style.
Now, let’s talk prices. Believe us when we say you’re going to like the sound of this. Not only is the small Chanel 22 just a smidge over the $5,000 range … but all THREE sizes fall under the $6,000 marker! The regular and large sizes retail for $5,300 and $5,800 respectively. Ready to shop like a kid in a candy store? We know we are.
Chanel Mini Flap Bag
The all-time classic of the luxury handbag world, the Chanel Classic Double Flap, has been the talk of the town for some time now – especially recently. No, not because of its design, or some new colors released by the house. Rather, it is because of the steep and consistent price increases of this particular style. In fact, the classic flap is quickly approaching the 10K mark. It’s prompting many to wonder if they’ll ever be able to own the bag of their dreams.
Well … just look a little smaller! There is an option to own the classic flap style with greater capacity than you’d expect. The Chanel Mini Flap bag is as timeless as it is trendy. It is available in multiple colors in both tweed and lambskin, with gold or silver hardware. The mini rectangular flap measures approximately 5” x 8” x 3” and is currently priced at $4,100 USD for tweed and $4,400 USD for leather.
And don’t forget the Classic Mini Top Handle. This version may be Chanel’s best value for a classic flap. It is priced at $4800 and is loved for its versatility and ease of use from day to night.
Both styles have a classic shoulder strap that can be worn crossbody, and the spacious interior, sans the double flap, will surprise you.
Chanel 19 Bag (Small Size)
When considering Chanel fan favorites, it’s simply impossible to ignore the now iconic Chanel 19. Released in 2019, the style quickly garnered a fan base among Chanel lovers everywhere. With it’s mixed metal interwoven chain, to its fluffy pillow-like quilting, the Chanel 19 offers style and function.
What we love even more, though, is the price. The small size currently sells for approximately $5,700 USD (varying slightly depending on material used). Measuring about 7” x 11” x 4”, it’s the ideal size for both work and play, night and day.
Chanel has re-released the 19 bag almost every season in different colors, leathers and hardware, so the variety of choices is stellar. Remember the caramel craze we all couldn’t get enough of? The delicious caramel colored Chanel 19 bag arguably kickstarted that popularity. We wouldn’t blame you for daydreaming about this bag – admittedly, we have too.

Chanel Boy Bag
With all the gorgeous styles of handbags Chanel has come out with over the years, the popularity of the Boy bag vacillates. At times the hottest of them all; at others, it seems a bit under the radar.
Designed by Karl Lagerfeld, the Boy manages to be classic and edgy at the same time. In fact, revisiting the style once more has reminded us just how truly sublime the Chanel Boy bag is. It’s a perfect style for those craving classic Chanel sophistication … with a twist.
As is the case with many styles, the Chanel Boy Bag is available in a plethora of different colors and hardware, in your choice of lambskin or caviar leather. Priced at just under the $6,000 mark ($5,900 USD to be exact), the Boy bag is a great addition to every Chanel lover’s collection.
The standard size for this style comes in at roughly 6” x 10” x 4”. Like the Classic Flap, the Boy Bag is also available in either chevron or quilted stitching design. This pink one in particular has sent our hearts racing with its shiny gold hardware. Have you added it to your cart yet?
Chanel Vanity Bag
As if we’re not vain enough, Chanel’s vanity cases just keep getting hotter. Whether classified as bags or slg’s, Miss Coco’s got quite a selection of this style, with many under $6,000. The choice of colors and design makes us feel like a kid in a candy store – there are so many options!
While some look cubical, others are more cylindrical, with a splash of circular and oval shapes as well. Varying in price from the mid $2,000’s to the high $4,000’s, Chanel vanity cases are the perfect hybrid of handbag and accessory.
The capacity varies depending on the type of leather and style you choose. More often than not, credit cards, lipstick, sanitizer and other mini must-haves can be tucked in nicely in one of these little cuties.
If we had a Chanel bag for every time we’ve said that mini bags are here to stay, well…. we’d probably have all these Chanel vanities. Learn more about this oh-so-cute style here and consider adding a Chanel vanity case to your collection.
