A Letter From CHANEL

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).

    Sigh. My Chanel wish-list is growing and I want to do the smart thing by saving money and not splurging BUT then if you don’t buy the bags now, you just KNOW the price will skyrocket!

    BTW, I am actually selling my black GST with whitegold hw. (Sorry if this is inappropriate to post that here).

    Hello, I am told the classic woc is € 1,260 and not € 1,200 in Amsterdam. Does that mean the price has already increase or is it more expensive in Amsterdam?

      Hi Banana, prices have increased recently, in Europe about €50,-. The WOC’s are around €1.200 EUR, the price of €1.260 should be accurate.

          Hi Banana, I don’t think you’ve made a mistake, cuz the prices in Europe should be everywhere the same.
