Chanel Price Increase Report March 2018

chanel-price-increase-march-2018-2

I can remember a few years ago. Chanel started the price increase trend. The classic bags became more expensive every year, those who procrastinated got punished.

It started with just one price increase per year, then two, then sometimes three. Unbelievable we thought. But now, it’s happening every month. Every month we have a price increase. And it’s not only the Classic Bags, but the Seasonal Bags also increase from time to time.

In this report, we will be covering three things:

  • The price increase of Australia (yes again!)
  • The price increase of the Chanel Trendy CC Bag
  • Full cover of the new prices of Chanel Gabrielle Bag
  • Some info about the Chanel Coco Handle Bag (okay, four things)
The Chanel Price Report 2018 Overview

 

The Price Increase Of Australia

Can Chanel Bags in Australia get more expensive? Yes it can. And the latest price increase happened right after the release of the Spring Summer 2018 Collection. So you might ask now, which handbag went up in price? The answer: almost every bag.

The Classic Flap Bags, Boy Bags, Classic Wallets, even the WOC’s and our can’t-live-without contemporary bags like the Coco Handle or Trendy CC Bags, all went up in prices.

So now the next question is; how steep were the price increases? That’s a great question. Let’s cover the new and the old prices in AUD, starting with the Classic Flap Bag.

Chanel Classic Flap Bag

We had a chance to get the Small Classic Flap Bag when I dropped in price last year. But now it’s back up. And overall, the Classic Bag prices have gone up by around $450 AUD depending on the size. The bigger the size, the steeper the price increase of course.

Chanel Coco Handle Bag

Of course, the Coco Handle Bag. The bag that we love so much. The bag that became one of the hottest thing in the fashion world. The prices of the Coco Handle Bag went also up, but we couldn’t post it here because we don’t have all the prices to do it. But we have updated as far as we can. Go ahead and check: Chanel Coco Handle Bag Prices Page.

Australia has always been one of the most expensive places to buy high fashion products. Now that the price has increased again, it’s even less attractive. You can of course, always read our guide to tax-refund to check in which countries to buy the cheapest. And maybe we should do an interesting comparison between Australia prices comparing to other countries. Would that be interesting?

    Yes please do a comparison between Australia and other countries! It pains me whenever I have to buy a luxury item here because of the price 🙁

    Interestingly, I just bought a chanel coco handle in small last week (May 2018), product code A92991 – and the price at the boutique here is A$4970. Not far off the mini price quoted in another article.
