chanel-price-increase-sept-2017-fb

There were already rumors circulating about the price increase on the Chanel Classic Bags in the United States (US). Yet there were still many questions unanswered. Is the price increase only for the Classic Flap Bags or also the Boy Bags? And how about the mini items like the Wallets or the WOC’s? And most importantly, is the price increase only in the US or also in Europe and other countries?

Just a few weeks ago, we wrote the Chanel Price Increase Report Nov 2017 Part 1. This report was about the price Increase on the Upcoming Classic Handbags, which mostly affected Asian countries

Chanel Price Increase In The United States

Like always, we’ve done everything we could to analyze the new prices. The Chanel Classic Flap Bag prices have just increased in the US. And naturally, the prices of the Reissue 2.55 Flap Bags went up as well.

But hold!

The price increase on the Classic Flap Bag only affected on the M/L (medium size), jumbo and maxi sizes. The price of the Small Classic Flap Bag has remained the same. See the table below:

The Classic Flap Bags New Prices Previous Prices
Chanel Small Classic flap Bag $4700 USD $4700 USD
Chanel M/L Classic flap Bag $5300 USD $4900 USD
Chanel Jumbo Classic flap Bag $5900 USD $5500 USD
Chanel Maxi Classic flap Bag $6400 USD $6000 USD


The Reissue 2.55 Bags New Prices Previous Prices
Chanel 224 Reissue 2.55 Bag $4700 USD $4700 USD
Chanel 225 Reissue 2.55 Bag $5300 USD $4900 USD
Chanel 226 Reissue 2.55 Bag $5900 USD $5500 USD
Chanel 227 Reissue 2.55 Bag $6400 USD $6000 USD

So how high did the prices jumped? The price of the medium size went up as much as 8.1% while the Maxi went up by 6.67%. The biggest price increase was the M/L size and we think it’s because of the popularity – most people pick the medium size.

As a side note, the Classic Flap Bag and the Reissue 2.55 Flap Bag prices haven’t gone up since May 2014, which is almost 4 years now. So it was just a matter of time before the price increase occurred.

    Chanel Price Changes In Canada

    There has been a small change in prices in Canada on the Classic Flap Bags. The Small Classic Flap Bag has decreased in price while the Maxi size has increased. See the table below.

    The Classic Flap Bags New Prices Previous Prices
    Chanel Small Classic flap Bag $5550 CAD $6075 CAD
    Chanel M/L Classic flap Bag $6325 CAD $6325 CAD
    Chanel Jumbo Classic flap Bag $7075 CAD $7075 CAD
    Chanel Maxi Classic flap Bag $7675 CAD $7400 CAD


    The Reissue 2.55 Bags New Prices Previous Prices
    Chanel 224 Reissue 2.55 Bag $5550 CAD $6075 CAD

    Chanel 226 Reissue 2.55 Bag $7075 CAD $7075 CAD
    Chanel 227 Reissue 2.55 Bag $7675 CAD $7400 CAD

    And again, the prices of the small size went down not only in Canada but also in other countries this year. While the small size is a Classic Flap Bag, I now doubt whether it’s a good investment because the other sizes (especially the medium size) have gone up in prices very steeply.

      Yes it might and perhaps also next year. Normally the Classic Quilted WOC should go up as well, because it’s similar to the Classic Flap Bags.
