Chanel Croc Biarritz
Image from Chanel

The buzz heard around the world came from the Louis Vuitton Tribute Patchwork Bag. Not only was I less than impressed, but also highly annoyed that those behind the curtains and scene named that atrocious mess ‘the most expensive bag in the world’. Give me a break Mr and Mrs LV PR. And give me a bigger break to the suckers who bought it. Although only slightly edging out its “competition” in price, there is a huge buzz behind a Chanel bag that is a force to be reckoned because of its price and beauty. Feast your eyes on the Chanel Croc Biarritz, an oversized (literally huge) Chanel tote designed with black crocodile. Forbes reports that there are three of these in Chanel NYC, two in Chanel LA, and three more wandering around select Neiman Marcus locations. There is a simply understated external zip pocket with a CC silver pull and dividers on the inside. Not sure if the bag can be found anywhere now, but the Chanel Croc Biarritz deserves much more fuss and press and spotlight than the LV bag of horrors. Coming in at $43,150, this bag is sure to be exclusive not only because of the limited quantity made, but also the exorbitant price tag. Any of you get one of the eight known beauties? Wanna share??

  • lee

    I did not say it was not “beautiful”. I said it wasn’t worth that many thousands of dollars, plus i was suprised that chanel used croc skin. Geeeez…have a cow…

  • couture collector

    Lee your an idiot who does not undertand the importance of the new pret-a-porter couture. Crocodile is the most expensive skin for a bag. You are just jealous because you have a hard time affording your payless shoes and Kmart bags. Enjoy the new Mizrahi for Target clothing line. Good luck getting off Wellfare

    • jezebelle

      :shock: “couture collector” you are the most insignificant thoughtless person i have ever seen on this site, just because someone thinks that spending 43 grand on a purse is rediculous does not mean they are cheap in any way!!!! and skinning animals isnt exactly classy! you have no right so say any such thing to anyone! in fact you are the one who is retarded for even thinking of spending that much money on a bag!
      god knows how many corners you are working to pay for the “couture” you collect.
      Good luck ever maturing into a tolerable human being if that’s even possible for you

  • couture collector

    To Lee

    Chanel has been using Crocodile and Alligator since at least Karl became creative director. It is a beautiful and luxurius skin that everyone should own. I suggest you save your money for the rest of your life so you can at least afford a croc or alligator 2.55 these are only around $12,500. Just so you know they are not sold at your local mall.

  • Nadja Etzel

    this bag is beutifull …. i would like to have it…. may if i win the lotery.

  • raquel

    you are all materialistic pieces of s==t with no substance! of course except for lee and jezebelle{because they have a conscience! couture collector sounds like a parvenu{social climber with no taste} i happen to be able to afford a 100,000 dollar bag if i wanted to and ten times over and i would never ever think of even wasting my money on excessive show of of wealth, i would rather give it to a worthy charity or cause! but thats just me!

    • goober mcgree

      too bad, so sad….boo hoo

  • emily*

    I also agree that 40,000+ for a bag is a lot, but you should also remember that it is all relative. To the average middle class person, this bag may just be a hope, desire, or aspiration. We have no place in telling anybody that they should not spend this money on a purse if they can afford it. Not saying that this money wouldn’t be better spent in a charity, it is up to the person to make such a distinction. In reality, one who would be able to spend such an amount of money on one single handbag also has the resources to give the same amount or more to a charity. To say that everyone on here are materialistic pieces of shit with no substance is a baseless, rude and unnecessary insult. I find myself looking at these purses as pieces of art, just as any art collector would die to own a Picasso.

  • Nickles

    that bag is sooooo hot , now that is one VERY SEXY bag ! Arghh i wnat it soooo bad its soooo nice i swear its sooo hot its on fir lol dry but yeah wtf @ the price tag but now that is one hefty but incredibly hot bag!! IM SAVING UP ALREADY :] lmao

  • hardy

    i own this bag. totally fabulous. use it often. everyone, above, has their point. however, already own a hummer one. give lots to charity. support many families well with my business. love animals, but believe in darwin. believe in karma. believe i am very blessed to be able to help keep coutour alive.

  • Crocodylus

    Please don’t be negative just because you can’t efford it. Chanel, LV, Hermes didn’t buy the leather from hunters/black market, they are from authorized farms. If you love it but can’t efford their price, send me your design I will make it at incredibly low price

  • ruby

    Chanel does not use crocodile skin, this is made of alligator. thanks

  • Naggy

    I could carry a very, very large bag like that, but I would be made fun of because of my size. (ipad)
