Chanel replica bags are getting harder and harder to spot as fakes. Knockoff designers began producing these bags decades ago. Over time they have perfected their craft, making them more realistic-looking.
Because replica Chanel bags have been on the market longer than replica Prada or Hermes bags, there is more inventory available. Chanel is one of the most counterfeited handbags on the market. Since some of Chanel’s more popular-style bags continue to be manufactured by the company, knockoff designers have plenty of time to improve the believability of the fake.
Unlike Prada or Hermes designer bags, Chanel bags are recognizable from a great distance. Chanel’s signature diamond-pattern quilted bag with chain strap and overlapping C’s is immediately identifiable as a Chanel bag.
Prada bags and the Birkin bag, which is the most counterfeited Hermes bag, does not have as many distinguishing details as iconic Chanel bags. Also, since genuine Birkin bag prices can range from $10,000 to $150,000, few people can afford them so it’s harder to accept a knockoff Hermes bag as authentic.
Best-Selling Chanel Bags
The most popular Chanel bags include the original Chanel shoulder bag (Chanel 2.55), the Chanel Classic Flap Bag, the Chanel Boy Bag and the Chanel Grand Shopping Tote. All of these bags have the signature diamond-pattern quilting, chain strap and overlapping C’s. They are also all available as knockoffs.
The original shoulder bag is a modification of Coco Chanel’s first design of the iconic Chanel bag and is still popular today. The flap bag is similar to the shoulder bag but includes a double CC turn-style lock. The boy bag is more structured in design. The shopping tote is much larger than the other bags and has stitched interlocking CC on the front.

The Chanel bag is also a favorite choice among celebrities than any other designer bag. Famous stars like Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Chrissy Teigen, Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker and many more have been photographed carrying Chanel bags.
