A Letter From CHANEL
Because I received new information regarding changes in Chanel policies and so on, I thought you might also be interest to get the new updates. But before we get into the details, I also want you to know that Chanel prices have increased as per 1 October 2013. Fortunately Europe and UK haven’t been hit very hard, a Chanel Classic Jumbo Flap Bag for example, has increased from £2,975 to £3,050.
The prices in Paris went up by €50 EUR or so, but if you live a little further like Australia, you will notice a big change in prices. The jumbo went from $5,030 AUD to $6,220 AUD (3 November 2013). We got these prices thanks to Ivy, here’s what she has to share:
Ivy: just went to check the jumbo caviar shw in Australia and the price is AUD$6220 (03/11/2013). The SA hinted it might increase again :0
BMB: that’s a lot of price increase compare to europe!!
Ivy: It is. The chanel price in Australia is just getting crazier. Certainly not a great place to buy a Chanel classic . The maxi is currently AUD6760. Probably will hit 7k in next year
Oh gosh, 7k! Hate to hear that.
Now let’s get back to the policy changes;
If you’ve been following us so far, you will know that it’s possible to reserve your (iconic) bags 24-hour prior just by calling the Chanel boutique that you are going to visit. (Our community has left a lot of comments about this). But that’s going to change, read this:
‘Please know that there has been a change in policy and our boutiques are no longer able to take phone orders or reserves by phone for a few select iconic handbag styles.
Out of our entire handbag collection, only 7 iconic handbag styles are affected. These 7 styles are considered to be our most iconic pieces and due to high demand and limited quantities, it became necessary to adopt tighter controls.’
7 Iconic handbags? Which one?
I am pretty certain that the first two are; The Chanel Classic Flap Bags and The Chanel Reissue 2.55 Classic Flap Bags. I need to guess the other five:
3. Chanel Grand Shopping Tote (GST)
4. Chanel Petite Shopping Tote (PST)
5. Chanel Reissue 2.55 Classic Flap Bag
6. Chanel Boy Bag
7. Chanel WOC (There’s a probability) or the Cerf Tote.
The Boy Bags are always sold-out in Europe and the GST is limited in supply. The PST is only to be found in a few Chanel boutiques (No, the PST is not discontinued).
