Chanel Grand Shopping Tote: The Big Shopping Tote Sister

Chanel GST/Grand Shopping Tote

The Chanel grand shopping tote, also called the GST is equally famous as the Chanel classic flap bag. It’s fame starts in the United States, going all the way to Europe, Africa to China and Japan. This bag represent the brand Chanel and is considered one of the hottest bag in fashion, the ‘it’ of the ‘it’ bags. But that doesn’t surprise me, everything what you need in a tote, the GST has it and so much more. The durable caviar leather, large enough to pack your modern essentials and even your summer jacket, stylish enough to make your girlfriends jealous and durable enough to love it forever.

There are several choices you need to make when it comes to the GST: the color, the hardware and the leather. The GST is available in gold hardware as well as silver hardware. And there are several color to choose; of course the classic black, quilted red, beige, chalk white, blue, gold, yellow, red and even gray. But it doesn’t mean that you can just enter the Chanel boutique and go home with whatever style you want. These bags are limited and your favorite choice might not be available in stock.

Then you have the leather, it’s available in metallic, patent, lambskin and caviar. The most famous choice is the GST in black and lambskin/caviar. But that’s no surprise, it’s the same choice you would make picking your first Chanel classic flap bag.

Since 2010, Chanel has reissued the GST (just a couple of modification to make it better). There’s a new strap with key hook inside, you can use it to attach anything you like, keys, wallet or even your iPad. The interior has changed too, Chanel has used thicker lining comparable to the Ottoman lining. Some people claim that the older lining was much better, more durable and less easy to abuse. The new lining, Satin seems to be much more difficult to maintain.

If you have a hard time of gather money to buy your first Chanel classic flap bag, your dream bag, then consider the GST. It’s as useful as the classic flap and much bigger. The price is much lower too, which means you get a great value for money. But you really want to stick with the classic flap or the reissue 2.55, Chanel PST, Chanel GST and even to the Cerf tote to make sure you have a Chanel classic in your wardrobe.

This bag is available in your local Chanel boutique.

      REPLY

      Hi Sasha, if you want a bag that can be used in any situation and events, the black stingray will do. The grey lambskin quilted is a stunning bag too and can be worn in every events (if its not metallic), because the color will adjust to your outfit, it’s neutral. The red is beautiful too and can be worn in special occasions, but also as casual. However, red needs to fit to your outfit.

      Hi Maria, it depends what you love. Do you usually carry a lot? If not the GST is the best. However, the GST XL is scarce, this style is not easy to get.

        I see. Do you know anywhere in the U.K it is currently being sold? I spoke to a Chanel shop assistant today and she advised that it may come back on the next season which is at the end of March but that isn’t a guarantee so I would be thrilled if I knew of somewhere that was selling it. Many thanks

    Hi Guys,

    I have Chanel GST XL in red wine but find it really heavy 🙁 is it worth to trade it with Classic flap in canvas plus cash? I can’t decide!

    I really like it but it’s really unfriendly to use. I’m a mom with a newborn and toddler, I can’t put everything inside because it makes more heavy.

    Please help!

    Thanks

      Hi Grace, uhm… no, not a good trade. If size is what you’re looking for, then the classic flap bag is not helping either. I would either go back to the GST or Cerf Tote? Or the PST XL??

      Honestly, I love both bags, but if you love your flap bag, I would stick to the GST because it increase in price very quickly. The Chloe Cross Body, which bag is that?

    Hi,

    Would appreciate if someone can advise me on Chanel PST’s availability in Europe? Ill be travelling to Italy and London this dec and i made a call recently to a few boutiques in London to check on the PST but was told by the SAs they do not have them anymore. I need to know if Italy carries them cause i really dont want to come home empty handed. Thanks!

      Hi Nur, you should get a back-up plan, a second choice, because the PST do exist, only its seasonal. And nobody knows which boutique has stock.

    Hi, would like to ask a few questions and hope someone can enlighten me 🙂

    1) Is it easy to find Chanel GST Beige Clair GHW in any Chanel stores in Italy and Paris? I will be going to Milan, Florence, Venice, Rome and Paris.

    2) Italy has the highest VAT refund right, which means I should get it in Italy than Paris?

    3) What do you think of Saint Laurent Classic Monogram Shopping tote? Saint Laurent or Chanel GST better?

    Thank you !!

    • Alex

      REPLY

      Hi Wen,

      1). This really depends on the stock, nobody can tell. You can call the Chanel boutique to check the stock.
      2). This is correct, however, I wouldn’t bet on the country, but if you can find the bag you want, then you should just buy it.
      3). This bag is also very nice, but its not as famous as the GST.

      Does this help?

      HI,
      I was able to bring the GST back in its original box in my standard cabin size roll on luggage. (I’ll measure the box for you and write again, but be assured that it fits in normal cabin size roll on luggage. When I buy Chanel bags, I always put them in cabin baggage, never the normal suitcase, as I don’t want the risk of it being either damaged or stolen or lost. I’d recommend always taking an extra cabin bag to allow to bring it on board for you,
