Judy Ann Santos is not into designer brands, but she does have classic pieces in her closet.
Stars who love bags and have the extra money to spare make sure they have a Chanel in their collection.
The brand is a classic.
Its timeless flap bags have a good resell value. Some get an amount close to what they originally paid for; some get higher value for the limited-edition versions and those with six-digit serial numbers dated 1985 or earlier. Just ask Kris Aquino, who has a collection of Chanel vintage bags.
