CATEGORIES:Other Brands

On mid November 2017, Chanel increased the Chanel Classic Bag prices in the United States. The price increaseshouldn’t have come as a surprise because the last time the prices of the Classic Bags went up, was in May 2014. That’s almost 4 years ago.

Chanel Classic Bag Prices In The US Comparing To Other Countries

Last month, Chanel increased the prices of the Classic Flap Bags. The Extra Mini, New Mini, Mini Square, Small, Medium Large, Jumbo and the Maxi Sizes have all jumped.

Naturally, the Reissue 2.55 Flap Bag prices followed. So the 224, 225, 226 and 227 sizes went up as well.

If you’re looking for the latest Chanel bag prices in your country, then visit our page: Chanel Classic Bag Prices.

If you want to know how much tax-refund you get for each country, please go to Guide to Tax-Refund.

In this section, we’re going to compare the current US prices of the Classic Flap Bags (and the Reissue 2.55 Bags) with the prices of other countries.

And we need to answer this burning question; is it cheaper or more expensive to buy in the United States comparing to other countries?

To conduct this research, we took the Chanel Medium Classic Flap Bag as an example. Then we lay out the prices of other countries next to the US price. The countries include Europe, UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia and Japan. And the prices we took from these countries are calculated after the TAX refund.

The Chanel Medium Classic Flap Bag is currently retailing for $5300 USD.


THE MEDIUM CLASSIC FLAP BAG PRICES AFTER TAX REFUND PRICES CONVERTED TO USD
Europe (Italy) €3853 euro => $4584 USD
UK £3431 GBP => $4622 USD
Singapore $7012 SGD => $5206 USD
Hong Kong $38500 HKD => $4928 USD
Australia $6182 AUD => $4704 USD
Japan ¥534985 JPY => $4772 USD
*Prices converted to USD according to the currency rate of December 2017.*Hong Kong does not have sales taxes or VAT. So the retail prices are final prices.

So here’s the conclusion. Buying the Classic Flap Bag in the United States is more expensive than other countries except for Singapore. If you’re an US citizen, then you’re better off buying in Australia or Japan. But Europe will always be your favorite place, because it’s where you can buy the cheapest.

Was It Cheaper To Buy Chanel Classic Bags In The US Before The Price Increase?

Why did Chanel increased the prices? Was it because the Classic Bags became more attractive to buy in the United States?

To answer this question, we compared the previous prices of the Classic Bags in the US with the current prices in other countries.

And for the other countries, we used the prices after the tax-refund. We want to create a scenario; if you were an US citizen or a tourist, where could you’ve purchased your Chanel Classic Bag the cheapest comparing to the US?

We have also selected the Chanel Medium Classic Flap Bag as an example for this research.

Chanel Classic Bag Prices In The US VS Other Countries Before The Price Increase

Before the price increase, the Chanel Medium Classic Flap Bag was retailing for $4900 USD.


THE MEDIUM CLASSIC FLAP BAG PRICES AFTER TAX REFUND PRICES CONVERTED TO USD
Europe (Italy) €3853 euro => $4584 USD
UK £3431 GBP => $4622 USD
Singapore $7012 SGD => $5206 USD
Hong Kong $38500 HKD => $4928 USD
Australia $6182 AUD => $4704 USD
Japan ¥534985 JPY => $4772 USD
*Prices converted to USD according to the currency rate of December 2017. *Hong Kong does not have sales taxes or VAT. So the retail prices are final prices.

According to the table above, purchasing the Classic Bag in Europe was still more attractive before the price increase. The most expensive place was in Singapore but the other Asian countries were well in-lined with the prices in the US. Of course there are gaps between the prices, but that’s due to the currency fluctuation.

Chanel Seasonal Bag Prices In The US Comparing To Other Countries

Chanel Chevron Statement Bag

The other day, we received a message from a lady who was interested in purchasing the Chevron Statement Bag. She compared the US price with the euro price. What she has found out was that this bag was not cheaper to buy in Europe, even after the VAT refund. So we double-checked and it’s true.

So here’s the full analysis:

In the US, the price of the Chevron Statement Bag was $2700 USD.

The price in Europe was €2236 euro (VAT excluded, so it’s the price after VAT-refund). If you convert this euro price in USD, then you get: $2660 USD. Remember, this is the price AFTER VAT refund.

The Chevron Statement Bag is only $40 USD cheaper to buy in Europe. But its the price AFTER VAT REFUND, which means you need to go through the whole tax refund process to match the US price. So in this case, you might as well buy in US, it will save you a lot of time and hassle.

The conclusion of this seasonal bag story:

  1. The Chanel Classic Bag is currently more expensive to buy in the United States comparing the countries listed in the table above. But it doesn’t mean that EVERY Chanel Bag is.
  2. Always compare the prices of every country before making any assumptions

CHANEL ALL ABOUT CAVIAR BAG

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

Chanel-All-About-Caviar-BagPictures courtesy of: Joy

There’s something that we need to talk about urgently. It’s about a gorgeous handbag that’s available at the Chanel boutique, but it hasn’t been officially introduced. It’s name? It’s called the Chanel All About Caviar Bag.

The Cruise 2018 Collection has just been released, but this handbag was also available after the announcement of the Fall Winter 2017 Collection. At that time we got some info from Joy, she saw this bag at Neiman Marcus boutique.

The All About Caviar Bag reminds us of the Smooth Leather Flap Bag, which is a beauty from two years ago.

The Design

Chanel-All-About-Caviar-Bag-2
Pictures courtesy of: Joy

The flap of the All About Caviar Bag is crafted in smooth leather while the body is made in diamond quilting. There is also a style available in chevron quilting, but it looks a bit vintage, like the bags from the 1960’s.

The center of this bag is built with the smooth CC logo and it’s embellished on a leather patch, which is then attached to the flap. This bag is different than the Classic Flap Bag, which is also what makes it unique.

The All About Caviar Bag comes with the signature woven chain leather strap and it’s then reinforced with a leather patch for the comfort. You can carry it cross body or on your shoulder. And what’s more? The small size version feels like the New Mini Bag.

The back of the All About Caviar Bag is even more interesting. There is an extra pocket that’s crafted with a separated smooth leather flap.

The Interior

We don’t have the exact information about its interior, but its comparable to other Chanel Classic Bags. There is a main compartment including patch pockets. This bag has also bigger space than the WOC.

The Sizes And Prices

Currently we do not have much information about its price and size. If you know more, please share the information with the community by dropping a comment below.
