Chanel Releases The Pre-Fall 2013 Collection in Stores: The Paris-Edimbourg Metiers D’Art


It’s now official, Chanel has released their pre-fall 2012/2013 collection in stores. And obviously sophisticated handbags requires a sophisticated name, so Karl Lagerfeld decided to name the new collection: ‘Paris-Edimbourg Metiers D’Art’. The inspiration came from the ill-fated Queen of Scotland and the designs are all about medieval and vintage! So how is this all going to benefit you?

    Hi dear, I’m going to paris and London next week. This is going to be my first chanel bag, please advise should I buy at galeries lafayette or London? I will only have about 2 hours time in galaries lafayette but more time in London.if I can’t get in paris, Which outlet in London stand a higher chance for me to get the classic jumbo flap and gst? Thanks!!!

      If you can find your favorite bag in Galeries Lafayette, then I should just buy it. You will regret when there is no stock in London. I would def. try out selfridges in London, they have a better stock.

        Thanks dear for your valuable advice! I certainly will try my very best to get it. Btw, is gst available at heathrow airport? I’m afraid that I can’t get 2 bags at a time. If there’s a stock for gst at heathrow, I will ask my hubby to purchase as 1bag per passport rule.

          I wouldn’t count on Heathrow, however I would give them a call, just to make sure. Chanel said that Heathrow will not carry iconic bags anymore.

    Hi Sassy,

    I am heading to Paris and Rome next month! Would like your advice on the following:

    1. How much does a Chanel Boy small and medium cost in Euros? Does it include VAT?
    2. Where are the best stores in Paris & Rome to get classic Chanel Boy colours?

    Thank you!

      Hi Anadia, Chanel has many Boy bags, I don’t always have the prices. But for the Chanel boy velvet, I know small size: $2,750.

    Hi Sassy,
    I called the store asked for the caviar easy flap. But the SA said they are all gone. She did recommend me the new cc crave caviar flap which is nicer. Is the cc crave flap bag belongs to this collection as well? If yes, do you recommend it? Thank you very much 🙂

      CC Crave seems to be the from the pre-fall colleciton. It’s not like the caviar easy flap, but it’s gorgoeus. Did you see it?

      • Pui June 16, 2013 Reply

        Dear Sassy,
        Thank you. I finally bought the large cc crave in dark grey (look like brown)…model A67815 Y07754. It is gorgeous.

      Hi Do, do you know which size you are hunting for?

      • Anonymous June 11, 2013 Reply

        I think I’m gonna go with the medium or large 🙂

        • Sassy bag June 12, 2013 Reply

          The large one cost around €2,450. Chanel boy flap prices are generally all the same, small, medium, large, but each season new styles are released. And the price is also subject to material used.

          Let me know when you got the bag =)

      Hi Miki, which of these pre-fall collection is attracted to you? The boy bags?

      • Miki.HKgirl June 9, 2013 Reply

        hey hello there. Actually I wanna get a flap bag from this collection but I haven’t decide which one yet. Its too expensive to buy Chanel in HK… the price is just crazily high… not really worth it. I usually ask friends to get for me in Paris, Rome or Milan.. but they always.. ALWAYS run out of stocks. BTW I saw a girl recently purchased a brown flap bag from this collection and posted online. Its so hot. Envy………..

          Miki, I know what you mean! Always out-of-stock, especially the Chanel BOY BAGS. I can’t understand why even Paris doesn’t have it. But HK, do they have stock?
