Chanel sells many different types of handbags, including tote bags! I love a good Chanel Tote bag, they are easy to carry and style, are iconic, can hold endless amounts of items, and hold up extremely well over time. In Short, 5 Chanel tote bags worth purchasing include the Chanel 22 Tote bag, the Chanel Canvas Deauville, Chanel Supermodel Tote, Vintage Chanel Canvas Shopping Tote and the Chanel Cerf Tote.
Chanel 22 Tote Bag
When the Chanel 22 Tote bag was first released in 2022, there were so many opinions and many mixed reviews. Nobody knew if the bag was going to survive a second season. More and more people are purchasing the Chanel 22 tote bag, particularly in the new mini bag size. The Chanel 22 tote bag, is a great lightweight bag, can be worn as a crossbody or shoulder bag, features the iconic Chanel hardware in both gold tone and silver, along with the quilted pattern.
To be honest, when this bag first came out I was on the fence about it, I wasn’t sure if I’d like it. After going to the Chanel store and trying on the Chanel 22 tote bag, I get why people who purchase this bag love it. There is plenty of space to hold all your belongings, it’s lightweight, and is an easy bag to wear all day. The Chanel 22 Tote Bag starting price is $5,000, and is now available in 5 sizes and models.
Chanel Canvas Deauville
The Chanel Canvas Deauville bag is worth purchasing because of its effortless design, inside pockets that make it easy to organize, the dual strap that can be worn as either a handle bag or a shoulder bag, and the lightweight fabric!
The Chanel Deauville tote bag is easily one of the most popular and desired Chanel totes. Priced between $4,500 and $6,900, this is a tote bag I recommend purchasing on the vintage market for 50% off the retail price. The reason why I gravitate towards the Chanel Canvas Deauville so much, is its casual, easy bag to wear to the beach and around the city. This is the perfect tote bag if you’re looking to replace your Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag.
Chanel Supermodel Tote
The Chanel supermodel tote bag is another iconic 90s Chanel tote that remains desired today. The reason the Chanel supermodel tote bag is worth purchasing, is because of its oversized classic tote design, 24k gold-plated hardware, quilted pattern, and double chain-link straps. Even though I’m petite, this has always been one of my favorite Chanel Tote Bags. The Chanel Supermodel tote bag can easily be used as a weekender bag with the amount of space that is available. I would love to wear this bag both traveling and as an everyday bag.
Vintage Chanel Grand Shopping Tote
I love a good vintage Chanel Tote bag, the Chanel Grand Shopping Tote bag was all the rage in the late 90s and early 2000s, and today it’s making a comeback! I always tell people that fashion recycles and what was old will be new and desired again. This is what happened with the Dior Saddle bag.
The Chanel Grand shopping tote bag is known for its quilted design, caviar material, large Chanel imprint logo, and chain link shoulder straps. If you are looking for a vintage Chanel tote bag to add to your handbag collection, then the Chanel Grand shopping tote is perfect for you, it's vintage and accurately represents the 90s and early 2000s, it’s spacious, and an iconic Chanel tote bag.

The Chanel Cerf Tote is worth purchasing due to its versatility. I’ve seen this bag being worn in a formal setting, to the office, in a travel setting, and people using this bag for everyday use.
