Categories: , Brand:

The Chanel Deauville Tote Bag or The Large Shopping Tote is an absolute staple in a Chanel collector’s wardrobe. It has first hit the stores in 2012 and has since been brought back again and again due to its immense popularity. In a Chanel world of formal and elegant handbags, the Deauville tote (which was named after a beach resort in Normandy) is a breath of fresh air. The tote is carefree, slouchy, casual and in the same time glamorous. It features one internal pocket with a zip, 2 handles and 2 straps and a magnetic snap closure.

The Large Chanel Deauville Tote is similar in size and use to a Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM (please see here for a review of the Neverfull) . You can click the compare button to select any other bag that you want to compare the Deauville to.

The Deauville tote comes in many different materials, depending on the season for example: leather, canvas, denim & raffia. It is also quite versatile, since you can use it as a travel bag, beach bag or just your everyday bag (doesn’t transition great into the night time, but what tote does?). It is also one of the more affordable Chanel bags, especially if we compare it to the Maxi Classic flap for example, which is nearly 10,000 USD.

Chanel Large Shopping Bag

Staying Power
Price-Quality Ratio
  • - beautiful Chanel tote & a perfect way to infuse some glam into you travels, sunbathing or just strolling around
  • - more affordable than other Chanel bags
  • - instantly recognizable to the logo and of course the big CHANEL text
  • - fits a lot, definitely all your essentials
  • - has the option to be carried in your hand, crook of the arm or shoulders due to the 2 sets of handles/straps
  • - depending on the material, it can be quite hard to keep pristine
  • - the big CHANEL text on the bag is not for those who prefer more under the radar bags
  • - no zip closure - the bag is an open tote that is closed only with a snap button, therefore it is not very secure
  • - more expensive than comparable totes from other brands (for example Louis Vuitton Neverfull or Celine Luggage)
