When the iconic Chanel 2.55 flap bag first launched in February 1955, its retail price was $220, around £154. By the 90s, its price had hit $1,150 (£810) and today, it’ll set you back $4,900 (£3,493).

Baghunter CEO, Evelyn Fox, has some theories as to how and why the bag’s value has swelled so much in the last few years. ‘We decided to conduct a study into Chanel handbags as we wanted to see if we could gain an insight into how Chanel implements their pricing tactics,’ she said. ‘And we were very surprised to see the extraordinary increase in value of certain bags over the last six years in particular.’
