Chanel-Bag-Prices-Euro-GBP-Cheaper-1

Just recently, Chanel increased the prices in euro countries. The iconic handbags like the Classic Flap Bag as well as the Boy Bags were all affected by this new policy.

The prices went up by 5 to 7 percent. The price increase wasn’t really pleasing, but it didn’t come as a surprise. There were already rumors that Chanel would increase prices in April 2017. If you’ve already acted on the rumor, you would have avoided the price increase in the end of May. And it’s also expected because Chanel prices usually go up at least once a year.

The Real Reason Behind The Price Increase

Last year, there were so much going on in the UK. The uncertainty in the economy caused the fluctuation of the pound and Chanel responded – they increased the prices several times.

Perhaps the biggest hit was Brexit. When Brexit was announced, the pound plummeted and suddenly UK became heaven for Chanel shoppers. You could get Chanel cheaper in the UK than in any place in Europe. And at Heathrow airport, your bag was even more discounted due to the tax-free policy.

This shopping fun didn’t last very long because shortly after, Chanel announced a sharp price increase. It was a rational decision as the brand needed to cover their losses. But for every cause, there is an effect and the euro prices became more attractive.

So shoppers switched from side again and went to buy their Chanel bags in euro countries. This situation has been going on for a while until May 2017 – the next price increase.

To show you the reason for the latest price increase, we created a chart with price comparison. The first column shows the retail prices in euro’s. In the second column, we converted the euro prices to GBP.

1. Chanel Classic Bag: Retail Prices In Euro Converted to GBP

CLASSIC BAGS EURO RETAIL PRICES CONVERTED TO GBP
Chanel Small Classic Flap Bag €3990 => £3498

Chanel Maxi Classic Flap Bag €5420 => £4753

Now let’s compare that to the latest UK prices:

CLASSIC BAGS RETAIL UK PRICES
Chanel Small Classic Flap Bag £3560
Chanel M/L Classic Flap Bag £3990
Chanel Jumbo Classic Flap Bag £4450
Chanel Maxi Classic Flap Bag £4830

What really happened was price harmonization. Chanel didn’t want a price gap between the euro countries and the UK. And because the prices in euro were significantly lower, they increased the prices of the classic bags and small classic accessories like the wallets and WOCs. But how about the seasonal bags like the Trendy CC Bag and the Coco Handle Bag? Why didn’t those prices gone up?

Season Bag Prices Were Already Harmonized

Were we lucky because the seasonal bag didn’t increase in prices? We don’t think so. The handbags like the Trendy CC Bags and the Coco Handle Bags didn’t went up in prices because they were already harmonized during the release. But the iconic handbags were available throughout the season, so Chanel couldn’t change these prices without our notice.

This chart proofs it:

How to use this chart?
1. Decide which bags you’re going to buy.
2. Determine which countries in Europe you will be visiting
3. Take the prices from the chart above.
3. Convert the price to your own currency via this currency converter tool.

Don’t Rely On Spain, Get An Backup Plan

Spain might be the cheapest place to buy right now, but prices in the Netherlands and Italy are not really more expensive. Spain, especially Barcelona is a very famous holiday destination. Chanel has limited boutiques there as well as limited stock. You might end up getting disappointed if you put all your bets on Spain. So if you’ve found your favorite bag in other European countries, don’t hesitate to buy.

Classic Bag And Wallet Prices In Heathrow Airport

Heathrow don’t stock iconic handbags, but they do sell the mini’s, the wallet on chain bags and season bags. To give you an estimate of the prices, we’ve taken the Classic Quilted WOC as an example.

COUNTRY CHANEL CLASSIC QUILTED WOC
UK Retail Price £1630
Heathrow Tax-Free Price £1369 (approx.)

The cheapest place to buy Chanel is still at Heathrow airport. But keep in mind that you are only eligible to enjoy the tax-free advantage if you’re flying to a country outside of the European Union. If not, then you will get the same tax-refund as in the normal Chanel boutiques.

With the chart above, you can take the prices and convert it to your own country’s currency. Beware that currency do fluctuate and the prices can change constantly.

CHANEL GABRIELLE POUCH

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

Get ready because Chanel is determined to crown the latest Gabrielle Line as the house’s next classic, it will become as famous as the Boy Bag or the Classic Flap Bags. Now before that happens, allow us to introduce you a new addition to the Collection, the Gabrielle Pouch.
Chanel-Gabrielle-Pouch

You think that the Boy Bag is so iconic? Think again as the Gabrielle Bags are inspired by Coco Chanel’s boyish attitude. And people used to call her: ‘Coco, Coco’, but that’s not her real name. Gabrielle is her real name.

The Chanel Gabrielle Pouch is launched for the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection. You can see that certain elements resemble the Boy Bag – like the part quilting and the part smooth leather. These two powerful designs create a very strong and irresistible appeal. The top zipper is made with a woven chain leather strap design (same design as the Classic Flap Bag) and it’s attached to a leather strap with the CC logo on it. The CC logo is made in vintage gold hardware.

Carry the clutch for work or special occasions; its size is ideal to carry somewhat larger mini-essentials like documents. This bag is just one word and that’s love. Style code: A84288, measures 24 x 35 x 1.5 cm, priced at $1425 USD, €1410 euro, £1190 GBP, $11100 HKD, ¥10900 CNY, ¥169560 JPY, $1775 CAD via Chanel boutiques.

Chanel-CC-Filigree-Vanity-Case-Bag-Will-Return-For-Spring-Summer-2017-Act-1

Chanel has a number of vanity cases out in the market but we are excited to share that the Chanel CC Filigree Vanity Case Bag might make a great comeback for the Spring/Summer 2017 Collection.

Traditionally, a vanity case is meant to carry and store a woman’s cosmetics, make up essentials, or toiletries whenever she travels in style. This particular CC Filigree Vanity Case Bag is not just about that for it is also made for convenience as it has a signature chain strap, making it ideal for cross body or shoulder carrying.

We love the fact that it comes in our favorite diamond quilting effect, has a top handle, and the interwoven chain strap. And oh, the additional little travel accents such as the two luggage tags are also adorable! One of the tags has a CC charm while the other holds a key to lock the bag.

Aside from its undeniable charm and beauty, this vanity bag is all about functionality and practicality as it unzips all the way around the whole perimeter and comes in two large compartments and one zip pocket in the center. Yes, most of your essentials and make up can fit inside this vanity case so no need to worry about that. There’s also a mirror inside which comes in handy!

Stay tuned, more information will follow soon…
