Is It True? A Glimps In Chanel Price Increase 2013

In my previous post I have written extensively what we might expect in the year 2013. And that the question is not ‘will Chanel increase price, but when will Chanel increase their prices’. Procrastinators are paying the higher price.

Rumors are now telling that Chanel will increase their price in the end of February 2013. Will they? Last year they changed the price in the beginning of February. Maybe this is just a sales talk to get your credit card today, but who knows it’s fake? More more… we heard several times that the price increase will be +20% for all classic bags. Yes, + 20%, not 20 dollars!

So how will the prices be if the rumors are real. How much are you going to pay for the bags? Is it going to be expensive? Oh yes, you bet!

chanel-prices-2013-forecast
*price increase is based on the rumors of +20%

Given that Chanel will certainly NEVER decrease their prices, why not buy it as soon as you can? It can only go up.

    Hi sassy,

    Do you know if chanel still makes classic single flap in jumbo caviar with SH?
    I’ve been looking online to see if there are any second hand but it seems tough to find.
    I have a few double flaps already but I am dying for a single flap that’s bigger and I can use on a daily basis.

    Your help is much appreciated 🙂

    Hi, does anyone know when chanel classic bag price will increase this year? People say it would happen at the end of Feb but now its middle of March already, price is still the same. I will finish uni by May, have to find a job and spend few months to save up. Wish I knew when the price goes up, dont want to pay few hundreds extra for the same bag:(

        I like jumbo flap bag but still thinking about the leather. The lambskin looks nice and a SA in the store said it would become a very beautiful vintage bag after years something like that but calfskin is easy to look after. Been to a forum and saw most of people posted their calfskin classic bag. I may buy it in May or June, just worried about that price now lol

            I am torn between a calf skin reissue or lambskin jumbo GHW as the price are the same in London £2970. The caviar is too heavy and hard on my shoulders! I am using it as an everyday bag. The lambskin looks and feels so luxurious and the reissue is stylishly understated.. Less common… What is your advice?

            May 26, 2013
          • Greta

            yes i do mind when the lambskin gets scratched… i had a lambskin single flap years ago and looked worn so i am considering the distressed calf now. To me,the reissue 226 goes well with evening as well as daywear and seems more classy… the jumbo GHW looks showy on me but the caviar is too heavy especially i like to carry many things… advice needed please! London Selfridges is quite well stocked..

        Hi Sassy, thanks for the information. BTW I’m from M’sia. I can’t wait until I went to Europe to buy my Chanel bag. So I ended up buying in M’sia which is very expensive compare to Paris or some part of central Europe. At first, I plan to buy classic medium flap bag but there wasn’t any black colour in the store. so I just bought classic jumbo lamb skin in GHW. It cost me around MYR16800.
        In another two months, I’m planning a trip to Paris. I will definitely buy another bag in medium size. Should I buy the balck colour again or should I buy other colour? should I buy caviar in SHW instead of Lambskin in SHW. Thanks

    I live in Beverly Hills and our Neiman Marcus said that the Chanel lamb jumbo is very hard to find this year…. I bought mine in 2012 but I was on a waiting list since December 2010…. sucks to live in LA too many people interested in the same product and the employee at Neiman’s said to not order it from a different state because you should never ship Chanel you never know what they do to the package..

    yes, the london airport no longer carry the classic. If you live in the US and going to Europe it’s cheaper in Europe for sure about 400 to 500 cheaper. Also, the GBP dollar is low right now. I’m going to Europe this Sunday. i’m excited and hope to come back with something.

            Hi Nina,
            I have a black caviar leather Chanel classic medium with gold hardware. It was given to my sister as a gift from an ex and she’s getting married now so we’re trying to find a buyer. It’s only been used twice so its condition is like-new. I also have the authentication card, original box, and care manual. Let me know if you’re interested and I can send you pictures. I’m located near DC so meeting up would be a possibility.

    Well, the lady at Heathrow said they will stock seasonal bags but no classics

    February 21, 2013
      • Vidya

        REPLY

        I dont think there is that much difference between seasonal bags and the classics- both are made by the same company using the same quality standards and raw materials. Its just that classic bags come with the ‘status’ attached and are supported by Chanels marketing strategy to turn them into iconic, exclusive bags (there is a shortage of these bags, especially in black caviar and especially in a med/large size in all London stores). But at the end of the day, other than the fact that only classic flaps are lined with leather, they are all the same made by the same company- and so if I look at it that way, I think the seasonal bags in the colours are actually more trendy and look very sophisticated too.

    hi there,

    I am travelling through Heathrow in august this years and I was looking forward to getting chanel 2.55 bag then. However, the chanel store at Heathrow terminal 3 no longer stocks bags in their store only cosmetics and perfumes. They said it is now Chanel policy. I am utterly disappointed.
