Chanel Price Increase 2013


Chanel Price Increase 2013. How will the price increase in 2013 on Chanel classic flap bags affect us? For those who are still doubting or saving money to buy a Chanel bag, there is no better time than today. If you just know how the prices are going to be in 2013, pretty horrified. What are the latest prices in the year end of 2012?

In February 2012, Chanel announced their first price increase of 2012. We expected, just like previous year, that Chanel will increase the prices of their classic bags again in December 2012. But it seems like that Chanel have merci on us and did not change anything on the prices. But that’s does not say that they will not in 2013.

How will the new Chanel bag prices be in 2013?
Planning to go and buy your first Chanel flap jumbo? I have to say, better now than today. I have some news that the next price increase will be +$600 on your classic bags ladies. That’s a lot of money.

What’s the price of jumbo right now? $4,800 + $600 = $5,400 USD. OMG, that’s an increase of 12,5%. The inflation is not even going so fast.

The more expensive the bag, the higher the price increase.

That’s obvious right? It is hard to see the Chanel WOC increase +100%, going from $1,500 to $3,000. Chanel classic bags like, Chanel classic flap medium, jumbo, maxi, the 2.55 reissue bags will have the most impact on the prices. These bags cost above $4,000.

Don’t forget the Tote bags, PST, GST, PTT, Chanel medallion Tote. All will have price increases, but as much as the classic flaps.

Latest Chanel Prices for now
The year 2013 is almost there and still no price increase yet. But do not think Chanel will not in 2013, if you decide to buy your Chanel, today might be right time. It’s Christmas and you deserve it. I have posted the latest Chanel prices here…

Bookmark this site or like it, I will be posting the next price increase as soon as Chanel announce it.

    Just to check if there is any difference in price for classic flap bag in caviar and lambskin. Should I buy the bag in silver or gold hardware.

    Hi price increase I’m sure it’s coming soon so I bought a gst but I really want a jumbo now I can return the gst and get the jumbo because the increase in the gst is not a high as a jumbo would be I can get gst later on even if they raise it a little I’m sure what do you think ?

    • Alex March 25, 2014 Reply

      Hi Dchanel, what price did you pay for the GST, because Chanel has increased price on the GST last month (or two), from 1790 to 1950 euro now. But the Classic Flaps Jumbo hasn’t increased so far. I would return the GST and get the jumbo before its get more expensive and you’re right, you can always buy the GST. Keep us updated

    Hi alex, I’ll be traveling to London on the 19th of sept. I’m looking for the Chanel timeless clutch in black caviar(A32342) and the WOC in black caviar also(A33814). P.s. I’ll be flying out of heathrow on the morning of the 22nd. I’ve called some boutiques and am getting contradicting information. For example some SA are telling me the A32342 is discontinued. I find they aren’t quite helpful on the phone and I’d like to be prepared rather than running around London searching various boutiques. Please help!!! Thanks.

    • Alex September 15, 2013 Reply

      We haven’t heard anyone buying the Chanel timeless clutch in 2013, but it was said to be discontinued in 2011, while some people spotted this bag in 2012. I think the SA’s are too busy to give you the information or the stock are too unpredictable to give you a stright anwer. Did you know that you can reserve your bag?

      I would just call the boutique up, ask for the two bags you want and if they have in stock you reserve it. The WOC in black (A33814), I think that’s the Chanel Classic Quilted WOC, Chanel at Heathrow might carry it, did you call them?

      • Natasha September 16, 2013 Reply

        Hi alex,
        Yes I did call them. The SA there told me they have the clutch but in red. But then the SA at bond street said its discontinued. So confusing!!They don’t have the woc presently at heathrow but I know they restock on Monday’s. I’m arriving in London on Friday so I’ll call then and reserve if they have. What’s your opinion on the red timeless clutch. I don’t know if it’s worth it?!

        • Alex September 16, 2013 Reply

          It reminds me back to the PST, some SA said it was discontinued, then the PST was spotted in Texas, Lyon and Paris. If Heathrow has it, then it means it’s ‘not’ discontinued. Don’t listen to the rumors, just ask if they have stock and when they do, which color. And if you like the color, then buy it.

          About the red, do you usually wear red? Are you comfortable carrying a red clutch? And how often are you going to use it? If not, it’s better to leave it or you will buy an item that will just sits in your wardrobe.

          London has like 10 boutiques. Maybe you should ask Heathrow if they can call other boutiques to check if there are more colors available.

          • Natasha September 16, 2013

            hi alex,
            I already have a gst and 2.55 in black. I was looking for something to use on evenings when I don’t want to carry a big bag. To be honest I’m only even considering the red because that’s what they have at heathrow. However I do like red and wear a lot of dark colors. Should I just get the black woc and double it as a clutch. My husband says so what if its red, it’s a ‘chanel’. IDK I don’t get the impression that the SA are NOT very helpful on the phone. Besides, I know for a fact they work on commission and may not want to work too hard finding a particular bag for me when someone else from another store will get the sale.

          • Alex September 18, 2013

            Natasha before you make any decision, please check the new clutch bag:

            Also, they have the Chanel WOC black quilted in velvet. That’s from the new season.

            If you are looking for a specific clutch, there is actually one from the fall and winter season that I like. They have it in black and is very chic. I uploaded an image here for you:

            About the timeless clutch, it depends on the reason for purchase. If you want to take advantage of the tax-refund, I would buy it. But if you really like the timeless clutch in black and don’t mind paying a bit extra, I would call up your local boutique to check for availability first.

      Hi Alice, which shopping bag are you looking for? Please go here:

      Dubai is more expensive than Europe, all euro prices are the same in Europe, so if it cost €2,000, then it will be the same in Greece.

    First of all, thank you for this wonderful website! Such a wealth of information!

    I’m heading to Australia in 4 weeks, and I’m after a medium flap bag (black) with silver hardware. Would you suggest that its better to buy over there with getting tax back? or find one in the US. I live in NYC.


    • Alex July 29, 2013 Reply

      Australia is expensive, US is higher price than Europe, not sure Australia vs US. In US you can try in tax-free states, it’s cheaper than Australia imo.

        Thanks Alex, im going to Vegas in November…so might pick it up then. Do you know if, in general, the medium black flap silver hardware is easy to come by? I don’t want to be dramatic in store if they don’t have it!

        • Alex July 31, 2013 Reply

          No one can forecast what Chanel has in stock, but I was suprised that a lot of BMB members did find their favorite bag in Vegas. I recommend giving the Chanel boutique a call and request for a reserveration.

        Hi all

        I’m heading to paris 1 August. I want to buy gst black caviar with gold chain metal.
        Do you think they will have it in stock? I’ve been everywhere like germany Italy and they don’t have it.
        Also do you know when will the new stock come in?

        Thank you. Really need help. :)

        • Alex July 31, 2013 Reply

          Honestly, I think Paris is your best shot, on BMB we heard a lot of people buying the GST ghw in Paris. Don’t go to Paris on Fridays and weekends (too crowded and too many tourist). Usually they get stock on Monthdays.

          • siska July 31, 2013

            Thank you so much alex. That really helps me. I’m in rome now. And they also don’t have it in black. They have it in beige. I should be patience now and hope that paris has it. What do you mean by monthdays? Or do you mean monday?

            Thank you so much.

          • Alex August 2, 2013

            Hi Siska, you are right, I mean monday, I typed too quick. Sorry for that. I would go for the black, don’t go for the beige. More, try to call Paris before you arrive, so you know which store has the bag.

    Hi, I had a friend who was going to get me a Classic flap jumbo in black with goldhardware in Paris, but the sales person told her that there hasn’t been any gold hardware in all chanel stores in Paris.

    Was going to plan to visit myself but if there aren’t any in Paris, might get it in london, or any other suggestion in europe?

    • Alex July 25, 2013 Reply

      They don’t have stock at that point, but what about tomorrow, next week, SA knows that new stock are coming, but not all of them know which bag and how much. My advice: 2 days before you go, call the boutiques and try to make a reservation.

      Hi Shirley,

      If your friend isn’t able to get you the black one in Paris, I plan on selling my Classic 2.55 quilted caviar jumbo single flap in black. I am planning on posting it on ebay. I used it 2 maybe 3 times. It’s in excellent condition and authentic!!! My account is kneuhaus02. I should have it up in a few days if you’re interested.

    im going to london next month and my friend ask me to buy chanel maxi jumbo (red) with gold hardware. I would really love to know the price over there so that easy for her to give exact amount to me and how much tax refund can i get back? hope to here from u soon. thanks:)

    • Alex July 16, 2013 Reply

      Hi Deyya, all Chanel bag prices are here:

      You mention Chanel maxi jumbo, these are actually two sizes (pls read the link above I just gave you about Chanel classic flap bags, it will give you a clear understanding about the sizes).

      Chanel jumbo classic flap bag is priced at: £2,975

      Chanel maxi classic flap bag is priced around: £3,240

      • Alex July 16, 2013 Reply

        Rule of thumb tax return is: 12%.

        • Terrence August 30, 2013 Reply

          My friend just back from UK, got tax return almost 14%.

      Hi Deyya,

      You might want to ask yr friend to consider other colours as well… Red is not always in store as they sold out very quickly… Best of luck…:-)

      • deyya July 17, 2013 Reply

        hi michelle..she consider pink you think its available?

        • Michelle July 17, 2013 Reply

          Hi Deyya, it’s very much depend on your luck when you arrive… I managed to grab a pink lamb skin jumbo in matte gold hardware early June… But as soon as the stocks hit the store, it’s all gone before the day is over. Most customers would hold on to the rare pink bags while others can only admire with their eyes…

          Chances of getting jumbo in black lamb skin/ beige caviar are always higher than black caviar… Very rare to see red and pink jumbo in the shelves for long…

          Also, do shop as early as when u arrive your destination to avoid dissapointment… Just in case your desire bags are not available and you can always go back the following day…

          Good luck…:-)

    Hi does anyone know when the next price increase will be in Europe on the classic flap bags? I will be in Italy late December/jan and I hope they will not have another increase.

    • Alex July 9, 2013 Reply

      We heard is in December 2013, but then again, we are never sure. So far 2013 has no price increase, pretty strange! Which bag do you want to buy?

      • sarah July 9, 2013 Reply

        I want to buy the chanel jumbo classic flap in black caviar gold chain. I am going to Italy late dec/early jan, but I am afraid that there will be an increase before I go :( my sister is going to rome in august so maybe I should see if she can buy it for me then?

        • Alex July 10, 2013 Reply

          Hi Sarah, I think that’s a better option. Chanel has not increased any prices yet, except the PST, but the longer you wait, the higher the chances are that they will. But if they don’t have the jumbo or the gold hardware in stock, would you consider the medium or silver.

          The reason why I am asking this is because I went to Paris one time with a friend. She wanted the black jumbo in silver. But they had only the beige jumbo in gold (and yes, Chanel had 10+ boutiques and none of them had the bag she wanted).

          • sarah July 10, 2013

            I really would love the jumbo black in caviar. My sister will be in rome for 1 month, so i’m hoping even if it is out of stock, maybe they will get more while she’s still in Italy. Do you know if stores can hold the bag for you once it arrives …for example for one day? Probably not :( I would also consider maybe the beige jumbo in gold . I’m going to Bangkok in 2 weeks but the prices in Thailand are not so cheap I have heard :(

          • Alex July 11, 2013

            Hi Sarah, yes they do that. You can call the Chanel boutique 24 hour prior and ask them to reserve for you. This is not a Chanel policy, so it depends on the SA whether she wants to help you or not. There are members at BMB that have done that before.

            Asia is more expensive, so I recommend buying in Europe. The beige jumbo in gold is a good choice, as long as you have a back-up plan. Keep us informed =)

I always wanted to get a Classic Jumbo Caviar bag in beige with ghw. But I’m not sure about single flap, double flap or easy flap. And Classic means that the opening of the bag is a double C?

      The price €3,450 is the Chanel jumbo flap bag. There are two Chanel classic flap bags available:

      The 2.55 reissue and the classic flap bags. The double C locker is the classic flap bag. You might want to give your friend specific instructions:

      Chanel classic flap bag in [color] and [hardware color and [leather]. Also copy the style code from this page:, the SA will know exactly what he is looking for.

        Hi Sassy, many thanks for your valuable advice! I went to our Chanel local boutique in Singapore to get the model number for the Jumbo and it was A58600. I think it is not internationally coded the same. So I will get my friend to buy the bag according to the Europe coding A28600 instead.

      Hi Wendy, there a ‘LOT’ of Chanel classic flap bags to choose, so you need to give your dad specific instruction about the bag you want, and with the style code. All types of Chanel bags has a tag with: ‘Chanel classic flap bag’ on it. The medium Chanel classic flap bag cost €3,100 EUR. There’s no purse that goes with it, maybe your dad bought you an extra small purse.

      Probably, the SA recommended your dad one their latest pre-fall 2013 collection.

        I suggest either the neverfull if you’re in need of everyday bags (I just LOVE totes!) but if you want something that can transition more from a day to night, the rocco bag will do just the trick! As for the Falabella, not a huge fan of the look – but this is like an everyday tote like the neverfull mixed with the edginess of a Rocco! So the falabella is like an edgier neverfull. :-)

        • Alex June 15, 2013 Reply

          Hi Jasmine, generally you should be paying 10% import duties if you purchased the bag in Paris. But if you carry the bag and tell the custom that it’s been used, you might be able to negotiate some discount. If they might scratch some value off the original price.

          For 10%, you still got a bargain. VAT in Europe is 19 – 21% and the prices are cheaper than USA IMO.

      It should be retailing around 2,900 pounds, and €3,400 EUR. They usually have more caviar available than lambskin. The caviar is heavier than the lambskin, but stronger in material. Is it an everyday bag?

      • Phab June 14, 2013 Reply

        Yes Its an everyday bag.what do u advise? And is £2900 inclusive of tax? Thanks for your reply. I love this site. Good job!

        • Alex June 15, 2013 Reply

          I would recommend the caviar, because the lambskin is very delicate and feels amazingly chic, but can get scratches very easily. You will be carrying it everywhere if you are using it as an everyday bag. You don’t want to baby it all day long right? Every scratch on your Chanel bag is going to hurt a little (maybe even more, ouch!). =S

          Hi,I wanted to have WOC Classic Caviar skin ghw but it is not available at all in Paris. So my gf decided to get me the latest design of PTT in dark grey/black shw in Paris. It cost €1390 before VAT. I am not too keen about silver as i have already a Jumbo classic in grey shw. But the price is way cheaper than in singapre so got her to buy. She will only be back to this weekend and I’m dying to know how it looks like. Anyone has already own one here and can show me a photo? I couldn’t find image on google.

      Hi, my gf is in Paris now. There are no classic caviar WOC ghw. I was disappointed, but my gf got me a PTT instead in the new winter colour grey/black in shw. I am not too keen about silver as I have already a classic grey jumbo in shw but because the price is so much cheaper than in Singapore, I told her to just get it. I have not seen the bag yet and it cost €1,390. I am dying to see how it looks like. Anyone has one to show?

        Did the SA checked in other stores too? So all the WOC were sold out? You should also ask her about the PST. We don’t have any images of the PTT in grey/black, it might be the new collection. When will she arrive in Singapore?

        • Lizzy June 15, 2013 Reply

          Yes, she made the SA call all other boutiques in Paris but there’s no WOC classic caviar ghw. Only camellia rhw. After a day of searching the net for the photos of the latest PST or PTT, I finally found an image of the bag at this FB page “Chanel Lover Thailand”. It’s a great page! She has the photos of all latest designs. It’s fantastic! You should check this page out. My gf is already back and I am scrambling now to her place to get my bag! Couldn’t sleep two nights thinking how it would look like!!

    There aren’t any caviar medium/large bags in London. I was looking for black with SHW or GWH (can’t decide between the two). Tried Harrods and Chanel in Knightsbridge. Luckily the prices are still the same… for now.

      I understand how you feel, the shw or ghw!!?? Seems like both are gorgeous. But you check our comment in the other article: Chanel prices 2012, there are couple of members who found the caviar in London not long ago. SHW is a neutral color, but the GHW is more attention grabbing.

          Every week, but they don’t stock everything. Some bags comes slower, like the Chanel classic flap bag. Some boutique has more stock than others.

      • cocococo June 4, 2013 Reply

        They did say that they sold out last week and are hoping to get some more in this week but that it is not guaranteed. I don’t live in London, so it looks like I’m going to have to call them daily until one is in stock and have it posted to me (I live in the UK). At least it gives me more time to choose between ghw and shw.

          Hi Coco, please also read our other article: Some people did saw your bag in stock and a lots of them. I can’t remember which comment it was, but it was also in London.

          Do you usually wear silver or gold necklace? or other accessories?

          • cococo June 5, 2013

            I usually wear gold, so ghw is the obvious option but for some reason I’m leaning towards silver but I’m worried I’ll regret it. I already have a GST with ghw…

            sassy.bag June 6, 2013

            What do you think about the GST in ghw? I am not sure if the SA can do that, but maybe they can change the chain if you decide to switch. I think it’s possible, you might want to ask. But if you could get the shw and there is no choice, will you be happy with it?

          • cocococo June 10, 2013

            I’ve decided on GHW and managed to track one down. I’m currently waiting for the SA to email me across Chanel’s bank details :-)

            The prices of the GST and PST you can find here:

            The price of the PST increased a little bit, but you can find that in the comment section, also where you can find the PST. They are spotted everywhere, GST is not a problem for you to get at all.

          • Anonymous June 14, 2013

            Oh really, so the pst is not discontinued? i am more interested in the Pst, do u know where i can find it i am going in august to paris for a weekend just to get it? How much the price has increased for the pst, how much does it cost now??? thaaaaaank uuuuuuu ;))))

          • cocococo June 12, 2013

            I walked into the boutique on Bond Street and they explained to me that the bag was not available and they do not do waiting lists. They gave me a card with all London Chanel boutiques telephone numbers on it and asked me to call around to see if any were in stock and explained I could have one posted. The extra cost was £20 (which is nothing considering how much the bag costs) and it’s all insured etc. incase it goes missing/gets damaged). My bag is being posted from London to Bristol (my home).

            I don’t think it’s that uncommon as when I bought my first Chanel bag in New York, they offered to drop it off at my hotel to save me carrying it around all day (and they did drop it off).

          • Sassy bag June 13, 2013

            Omg, never heard about this. Great service, but it also make me nervous to have it send by post. 20 pounds is really cheap including the insurance of such an expensive bag.

            I was also very curious if they send the bag to another country. But I don’t think they do this.

          • cocococo June 12, 2013

            Forgot to add that my particular bag is coming from the Brompton Road Chanel boutique in London as they were the only boutique that had the bag I wanted in stock.

        Hi, My gf going to Paris tomorrow and I am asking her to get me a WOC, black caviar skin with gold chain. Do you know how much it cost after VAT and could she get it easily as gold chains WOC are rare to come by?

          sassy.bag June 3, 2013 Reply

          Which Chanel WOC are you going to buy? Halfmoon…?

          Generally they cost around €1,100 to €1,500.

          So the tax-refund will range from: €132 to €180.

          It hard to say what you can find in a Chanel boutique, that’s what makes it all exciting and disappointing. I hard a lot of people that they can’t find the caviar in Europe, while others have more luck and find it everywhere. It has to do with the supply the demand, they go very fast.

          I’m sorry I checked it wrong, it’s around €1,750 right now. There were rumors about price increases, but we checked and no increase yet.

          A 20% increase on the €1,790 is about € 2,100 for the new price. This is not uncommon, we have seen the jumbo flap bag double in price within four years.

            Same price, the lambskin looks better. It’s feel luxurious, but is less durable like the Caviar. The caviar is harder, but for the totes, I wouldn’t mind going for the lambskin. what do you think?

            ps. I love the golden hardware, is one of the most picked.

    Your website is perfect for shopaholics!

    I saw your post earlier that the Chanel boutique in Heathrow no longer stores any iconic bags. It does include boy chanel right? It would be a pity if it does..
    And do you know the current prices of medium and small boy chanel in uk? Has there been any price increase recently?

      They don’t stock iconic bags like classic flaps, 2.55 reissue. I heard they still have the Chanel WOC, and they should be selling the Chanel boy too.

      The prices should be around:

      Small: €2,400 EUR
      medium: €2,500 EUR

      I like the medium, do you know which color you will pick? No price increase since february 2012.

      Here is a tip, give the Heathrow airport a call, and Adrianna, keep me informed about your journey.

      Hi Julia, please read this:

      You are eligible to shop tax free (receive a VAT/sales refund) if any of the following applies;

      – You are a non – EU resident
      – If you are studying or working in Europe you can apply for a refund on any goods bought in the final 3 months of your stay in Europe
      – EU residents residing outside the EU for 12 months or more (you may need to provide proof of residency for Customs). Furthermore, if you are an Irish person who is moving to reside outside of the EU for more than one year you must present a Visa or proof that you will be resident for 12 months or more outside the EU.

      Hope this helps, which Chanel are you going to buy. Oh btw, if you are going to buy at Heathrow, it’s already tax-free. Even EU-resident can get their Chanels over there!

            Hi sassy bag (: I was a little confused.. You mean I’m able to apply for the tax refund on the final 3months of my stay in Europe.. What if I return to London after a few months away? Is my working visa still valid?

          • Author
            sassy.bag May 9, 2013

            These are the rules I found on the EU regulation about tax-refund. Generally EU doesn’t want people who are NON-eu citizen to to study or work in Europe and get tax-refund when they are staying for a long period. That wouldn’t be fair right? Because you can get tax-refund almost on anything you purchase. But on the final three months of your stay, you can get tax-refund on all purchases. It is your last stay right? Or is it temporary and you are coming back to London for study/work?

          • Julia May 12, 2013

    Hello everybody,

    I just came back from Munich and I bought a GST SHW at Euro1790.
    It only comes in cavier.
    I am so so so HAPPY….

    For the GST XL, it’s Euro2100.

    Also I have checked with the SA, the PST will not be discontinued forever.
    It will only be discontinued for a couple seasons.

    FYI for those who are interested in getting one..

    Cheers :)

      Hi Lenna, A28600 Y01498 means Chanel jumbo in golden hardware and caviar.

      You need to tell the SA specific: ‘jumbo’ + ‘golden hardware’ + ‘caviar’. Let him remember the code _ these three terms and you are oke.

      There’s no difference buying outside or inside the airport. Matter fact, only heathrow has a Chanel boutique, but don’t sell iconic bags anymore:

          Hi, I understand. You are looking for a tote. The PST is unfortunately hard to get or even discontinued. But the Prada saffiano tote is in my opinion the best choice, but I am more familiar with Prada. And if you do find the PST, YOU HAVE TO BUY IT. Btw, I love morocco. I almost went there for a wedding of my best friend. But unfortunately it was cancelled. Keep me informed about your purchase.

    Hi sassy,

    I will be going to America and France in August. I really want to buy my first Chanel bag (classic in black cavier either large or jumbo – I don’t mind either gold or silver hardware). Where should I get my Chanel? Will it be cheaper in American or Paris? (Incl taxes)
    Ps I’m from Melbourne Australia. The current price for a large is $5090 and jumbo $5890

    Thanks for your help.

      I would recommend you to buy the bag whenever they have in stock. Let’s say that Paris has the black caviar in stock and Amsterdam don’t. You go to Paris, skip the bag because you want to get cheaper in Amsterdam. That will be disappointing right? The VAT difference between Paris and Amsterdam is just 2%, but Paris has more boutique.

      Hi Fat, the PST is hard-to-get/discontinued. One of our readers spotted it in Japan, but I don’t think you will be traveling all the way there to get the PST. The pst is around 1,200 pounds, you can find more prices here:

      You might want to try the GST, the new classic Biarittz Tote or the CC timeless or the timeless cc hobo.

I also like the timeless tote as well but this one cost $3200 CAD and has a zipper. Which one should I go for? The one with the zipper cost less than the one with zipper.

        Is a little bigger than the PST. The timeless tote is the soft cc crown that have the zipper with you think is worth it to spend $700 more just for the zipper ? I only own a WOC in the calfskin.

          Hi Bachfifi, I don’t know which one is the one without a zipper (the seasonal one), but I can say that some people don’t like the GST because it’s too big and go for the Chanel timeless tote CC tote. If you think it’s too expensive did you checked the Timeless CC Soft ‘Hobo’ Bag yet? It’s a bit cheaper than the tote.

          BTW, it’s not the zipper that I would go after, but the style of the bag. If both bag cost the same, which one would you pick?

          You should never buy something like Chanel bags on the internet, especially if you buy it brand-new. If you buy seasonal make sure it’s a store with good reputation. But anyways, you need to go to the store and carry the jumbo and maxi yourself. Try it now, and also don’t forget the medium. Knowing your heigh, I think either the medium or jumbo is right for you. Decide the medium and jumbo based on the space you need, jumbo obviously has a little bit more.

          • besYS April 19, 2013

            Yeah, Sassy is right.

            Make sure that you go to a Chanel boutique and try the bags with your “body frame”

            Decide if you prefer:
            – Caviar or Lambskin
            – Silver or Gold hardware
            – color
            – and of course the price.

            It is also a great help to read reviews and blogs

            Hi, my friend recently help me to buy a chanel Classic medium with patent skin SHW, is very pretty and I love it ♡. I can’t wait in August because worry price might increase by then. I paid €3100 & vat ~12%. You might consider Patent beside Cavier or Lambskin. :-)

    I’ll like to ask if anyone is familiar with the prices within Europe itself. Thing is I’m traveling to Florence, Italy next month then to Berlin and finally Munich,Germany. Would it be better if I got my Chanel in Italy than Germany? Would there be any savings? Its gonna be my first one so I’m pretty much aiming for the classic 2.55 medium.

    Thanks in advance!

      That a country has no VAT doesn’t mean that the price is cheaper. A country with VAT means Chanel needs to lower it’s return to even the prices worldwide. HK doesn’t have VAT either, but their prices are much higher due to demand.

    1. did chanel increase its price in 2013 yet?
    2. All purchases in Italy will have VAT refund of 20%? or depends on your total purchase price? Because I thought the VAT refund is about 15%, i could be wrong.
    2. 2.55 is a classic, which one to pick, it’s a dilemma, can you advise.
    – size 226 $4900 (us) black with gold OR
    size 227 $5300 (us) black with silver

    do you think just a few hundred more, it’s worth to get a bigger piece or … what do you think, thank you.

      Hi Tracy, Thanks for coming by. Let me try to answer:

      1. No price increase yet
      2. Italy has VAT of 21%. But if you substract the 21% + the administration fee, then your discount will be around 10 – 14%. There is a full example of calculation on this page:

      It was reply on comment of Kai.

      3. I think it’s best if I compare it was the classic Chanel flap:

      Reissue 226 is like Chanel jumbo flap
      Reissue 227 is like the Maxi (but maybe not that big, but it is comparable).

      I honestly love the size of 226 more, I think the 227 is too big, unless of course you are much taller. I am like 1.75 cm or you love large bags, AND or you always have too much personal essentials to take with you that 226 space is too small.

            I kept thinking about the 2.55, plus the potential price increased.
            I finally made the decision & got a 226 , thanks for your opinion.

            Yes, it’s very vintage look, but it’s very diff. than other classic bag.
            I hope this classic bag will last, till I am still carrying it in 5 & even10 more years from now. Do they keep on making these classic flap & reissue 2.55 bags? I am sad to read your post about some discontinue items.

            Hi Tracie, the 2.55 and the classic flap are still in production and will for a long time. 2.55 actually stands for February 1955, that’s the first day that Coco Chanel made the bag available for public. Until today the 2.55 is still famous.

            What you read was the 2.55 Chanel classic mini flap.

      OMG, if this is your first time then just stick with the black.

      Sometimes white is also a good choice, because white and black both are neutral color that can match most outfit, so you can use it as an ‘everyday bag’. But the jumbo in white feel different than black.

      Chanel jumbo is also available in colors: Copper, Navy, Bronze (fall 2012), Burgundy (fall 2012), Khaki (fall 2012), Blue, Red (Fall 2012), Silver (fall 2012)

          If you can, stick with the black. If you decide to switch, the black is the most valuable to sell because many people want them. More, Chanel bags increase in prices, so yours will become more valuable. Btw, do you know if you are going to buy the GHW or SHW?

      Chanel reissue have 4 sizes, I am going to give you a comparison:

      2.55 reissue 225 – similar to; Chanel medium flap
      2.55 reissue 226 – similar to; Chanel jumbo flap
      2.55 reissue 227 – similar to; Chanel maxi flap

      And there is one size, which is pretty rare. The 2.55 reissue 224. Size measurement: 8” x 6” x 2”. Price: $4,200.00 USD. I think around €3,000 EUR.

      The bag is not discontinued, Chanel introduced a new 224 in every season or so. You can find the latest 224 here:

      It’s the blue one.

      Hi Tracey,

      Good choice! I love the 2.55 reissue.

      You can find the prices here:

      I think what you have heard is that Chanel boutique in Heathrow (tax-free area) is not stocking ‘iconic’ bags anymore. I don’t think that Chanel in London stopped stocking their most famous 2.55 reissue. I think by ‘black gold’, you mean Chanel reissue 2.55 in black and golden hardware right? This is the most famous combination. Paris have 14 boutiques, did you try over there? Also in low seasons Chanel boutique in Amsterdam have surprisingly more in stock than we can imagine.

      I advice you to give a few boutiques a call. Only the SA would know if the bag is in stock. For example, iconic bags in Paris goes out of stock very quickly, especially during weekends. But they usually have new arrivals next week.

    Hi there. My husband & I will be going to 7 cities of Italy & France in May (our 1st time!). And my husband wants to buy me my very 1st Chanel as his gift for our 10th Wedding Anniversary (yay!!!). And i want a Chanel Medium Flap Bag. My question is, do you have any idea how much is it in May, as i was reading that there’s a price hike going on? And it’s better to buy in Paris, right?
    And off-topic….i’m also planning to buy a Balenciaga bag. I’m 4’11” & which do you think is better, the Town or the City? Coz they said that “small is the new big”. And where’s the best city to buy Balenciaga, Rome, Milan, Florence or Paris? Please advise. Thank you so much & just so you know, i’m so enjoying reading your blogs/forum. More power! :-)

      Hi Sam!!!, thanks for your support. That’s exactly what we need. Well, I would say go buy in Paris. Why? They have tons of boutique over there, the experience is great. You will L.O.V.E. it. Second reason: Chanel come from Paris! Third reason, other cities might not have the bag you want, but Paris HAVE. One more tip, never buy Chanel in the weekend in Paris, it’s almost always sold-out! There are so many tourist there, hungry for those bags. Some of them buy 15 earrings at ONE time!

      For Balenciaga, I am suggest the mini city bag. The bag was just released and only available in Asia. It’s so cute! But you gotta love petite bags. If you are too tall, you should go for the city. The town is also a legend itself, if it is your first, I would go for the city!

      More reads on Balenciaga:

      If you can, you should buy all the bags in Paris. The experience is just amazing, the people and the city itself. I adore it, all the expensive, high end boutiques are located there.

      Chanel might increase their prices, but until now I heard nothing… I think if it did happened, the girls on bragmybag would be posting like crazy on our articles. If they do, then you still can get advantage of the tax-refund.

      More reads on tax-refund:

      Oh yes, tax-refund is for the Chanel as well as the Balenciaga’s. It’s about 10 – 14% included administration fee.

      I think you hubby is really amazing for buying you a Chanel!

      I cannot say that. Maybe your friends are kind enough to sell you their authentic Chanel becoz you are good friends. Need to see pictures, can you post them on the forum area?

        Chanel is not made in China. It is a counterfeit.

    A SA at harrods opined that he did not think prices would rise this year. I have asked him twice, perhaps even thrice, on three different occasions and he had the same answer ‘no price increase’, now I am not quite sure whether to believe him…perhaps we will know at the end of feb if he is infact correct!

    hi ladies. after coveting the 2.55 for years (should have purchased it before the first huge price increase), my hubby finally bought me the 2.55 reissue in size 226 @ Bergdorf. the cost was 4,900.

      Congratulation with your new bag!!!

        Thank you, Lilian! I love it. Just arrived yesterday. The level Bergdorf goes to in terms of packaging and presentation is unbelievable.

    Thanks for this article – Just wanted to let you know that the pricing above is no longer valid for some of the classic flap bags.

    On 30 December 2012 these were the prices (definite):

    Chanel Classic Flap Jumbo = $5980
    Chanel Classic Flap Maxi = $6400

    I was also tipped off that another price increase would likely occur 1 Feb 2013. I just purchased the Maxi and it KILLED ME to have pay $6400 for a bag that cost half that a few years ago – still – it is a gorgeous piece!

    Good luck!!

      OMG are you sirious? When did you bought your bag? Don’t tell me the exact date when the new price increase occured? The price increase on the MAXI is insane, how much did the bag previously cost; $5,200. So they have increased like with $1,000.
