Truth be told, there are handbags and there are those handbags worthy of recognition. And Chanel purses fall into the latter.
As someone who has a deep appreciation for luxury products like Chanel bags and Gucci purses, I can totally relate with your need to go for a more affordable Chanel bag dupes.
Chanel is a brand that commands respect and is the epitome of sophistication, you can’t blame a girl for dreaming about adding an original Chanel handbag to her collection… someday [Fingers🤞].
But for now, let’s cut our cloth according to our coat (aka shop according to our budget) by opting for budget-friendly Chanel bag dupes.
What is the difference between a knockoff and a dupe?
But let’s clear the air first about the difference between a knockoff and a dupe. There are a plethora of replica products that sellers try to pass off as the original product. Regardless of the price and quality, knockoff/imitation/replica products are illegal.
Not only does this eat into the profit margin of the luxury brand, but it also cheapens the luxury brand and hurts their sales. And a huge factor why designer goods command such an expensive price tag is because of the perceived value and exclusivity that buyers of luxury products receive. You could also get in serious trouble for buying or supporting sellers that sell these products.
Designer dupes like Chanel bag dupes are termed look-alike products. Because they look like the designer version of the product without passing off the product as the original item. These products also avoid placing trademarked features like the Chanel double C on the goods.
Why are look-alike aka designer-inspired products ok? If my understanding serves me right, retailers and designers cannot copyright a style because of how quickly styles are produced and change. So Topshop can sell this look-alike of the Gucci Marmont bag without fear of being sued (#notlegaladvice).
Now that we’ve gotten the differences between knockoff products and dupes, let’s get down to the main focus of this post: Chanel bag dupes!
Like they say, luxury comes at a price. While Chanel bags are in the upwards of a 4-figure ($$$$) price tag, you can still buy a similar Chanel handbag dupe at a decent quality without the price tag.
