Chanel GST Discontinued?

chanel-gst-discontinued

Recently we received a lot of messages saying that the Chanel GST (Grand Shopping Tote) is going to be, or has been discontinued. Well, one thing I am certain, discontinuing the GST will be devastating as it is one of Chanel’s most affordable ‘classics’, and its being hunted by many Chanel-beginners.

One of the messages we received was from Sarah, she was told that the GST has been sold-out in Neiman Marcus and Saks, and that it was being discontinued. She was very surprised, because in the end, the Chanel GST is a classic.

But she is not the only one, Saks and Neimans have told the same story to more people, and even Bergdorf Goodman is saying that they will no longer carry the GST and also Cerf Tote.

So does it mean that the Cerf Tote will be discontinued too?

More, Nordstrom is telling that the GST is going to be discontinued after the Chanel Spring Collection.

So what’s the deal here?

We also did some investigation in Europe, for example the SA at Chanel Amsterdam were totally surprised, they have never heard such claim, and they were ordering new colors for the Spring Season.

Several other SA’s in Europe had also no idea what we were talking about, they knew nothing about it.

So does this mean that the Chanel GST will be available only in Europe and discontinued in the United States? Well for now we need to wait, only time can tell.

And by the way, there might be another Chanel price increase in January 2015.

Got more information? Or questions? Please drop them at the comments.

    Do you think discontinuing the GST will increase OR decrease the value of the bags that are circulating?

      Hi Linda, it will only increase. Someone I knew bought the GST from an consignment store for the price of $3500 USD just recently, which is very expensive comparing to the original price for a brand-new one of $2900 USD in the end of 2015. The GST is a legendary bag, I have no idea why they discontinued it, but there were also rumors that the GST or PST will come back from time to time as a seasonal bag.

      Hi Cindy, yes because this is a great bag and its going to be discontinued. The value will only go up after that!

    Hi everyone, would like to check if anyone has experienced wear and tear on the corners of their Chanel GST (in caviar leather)?

    Mine has suffered quite a bit and I’m devastated! Just wanna check if it’s a common issue among Chanel’s caviar leather.

    Thanks!

    hi there,

    I have some questions to ask, if someone knows the prices of Chanel GST in this year 2016 in EU or in Swiss Franc?
    I live in France but close to Switzerland (take only 1hr to Geneva) if the price is not much different I would prefer to buy in Geneva. However I can wait to go to buy in Paris if the price is much different.

    Thank you in advance.

      Hi Cheyenne, if I am not wrong the price of this bag should be 2700 euro and personal experience is that Switzerland is more expensive. But this bag is discontinued, so if you can get one, you’re already lucky.

    Hv checked with the boutiques in Seoul last mth and was told the GST are completely out of stock and they have no idea if the new stock will still be coming in. In the end, I bought my GST in Spore which hv very limited pcs and was told the GST is considered a seasonal item.
