Chanel’s signature Trendy CC handbag is easily one of the most coveted and desired bags created by the mega fashion house. The bag’s signature feature that sets it apart from the other classics, is the gold metal plate under the handle, with ‘Chanel’ engraved boldly across it.

Initially thought of as too similar to the Classic Flap Bag and the Coco Handle, the Trendy CC has steadily established its own patronage to become a ‘must have’ for every Chanel enthusiast.

History

Designed to be the working woman’s functional yet stylish bag, the Trendy CC was launched first in Chanel’s Spring’14 collection. The bag, much to everyone’s surprise, received an astounding response when it flew off the shelves in record time.

The original Trendy CC is crafted in soft lambskin with the brand’s signature diamond quilting and the house’s famous interlocked C’s clasp. The accordion shape of the bag, its enhanced capacity and multiple compartments makes for roomy and spacious interiors. With a top handle and a comfortable shoulder strap, the versatile bag has, over time, proved to be a popular option for the woman on the go!

Considered today as one of Chanel’s signature styles, the Trendy CC has achieved a cult status among Chanel aficionados.  It has even been revamped into new styles including The Trendy CC Bowling Bag which is a great travel bag, and The Trendy CC Wallet On Chain which is perfect for an evening out.

Why We Love It

Despite its similarities with the Coco Handle and The Flap bag, here are the top reasons why The Trendy CC stays in demand season after season and year after year:

The Gold Chanel plate

While it has all the standard Chanel codes firmly in place, the Trendy CC also has the one additional feature that is unique only to this style. The gold toned plate with the brand name engraved across the top edge of the bag, is unique and instantly recognizable, adding that much desired bold and luxurious touch to the style

Top Handle and Shoulder Strap

Sensibly equipped with a roomy handle and strap, the Trendy CC is easy to tote, sling or carry in hand. The interwoven leather and chain strap with the leather strip on the top makes it a comfortable bag to carry all day long to work, travel or on the go.

Multiple Compartments

It is rare to come across bags with multiple inner compartments and pockets. The Trendy CC Top Handle bag comes with 3 roomy inner sections. A great and much desired feature for the more organized amongst us.

Limited Supply

Walking into a Chanel store usually involves going through a vast selection of Boys, Flaps, Coco Handles and Chanel 19s. Seeing a wide range of Trendy CC’s in store is rare and very unlikely. The brand releases only a handful Trendy CCs each season, making it relatively unique and rare compared to other Chanel styles.

Material

Crafted with lambskin, the bag has a soft buttery texture that adds to its rich and luxurious feel. A word of caution here is necessary on the delicate nature of soft lambskin leather, which is prone to scratch easily. So be sure to handle with care.
The hardware varies from model to model depending on the style. The Trendy CC has been spotted with gold, silver, ruthenium, enamel and black hardware.
