Chanel Price Increase 2020

By Posted on 0 3 m read

What can I say… luxury community has been shaken this May! First, with the second price increase this year from Louis Vuitton and now with an absolutely outrageous price increase from Chanel. For a while, I’ve heard rumors about Chanel’s desire to harmonize prices across regions. For many years, luxury shoppers could buy classic bags from Chanel for significantly less by shopping in Europe. Most of the time, savings were so impressive that they fully justified the travel. However, it looks like soon this practice will be over. Effective of May 11th, 2020, Chanel has increased their prices in Europe. Furthermore, throughout the month, prices were increased in other regions too. In this blog post, I would like to take a look at the old and new Chanel prices around the World.

Let’s start by looking at the effect the May 2020 Chanel price increase had on prices of classic bags in Europe. The bag that suffered the most drastic price increase is the Classic Mini Square Flap Bag. It went up from €2680 to €3350, which is a whopping 25% price increase. Other classic bags that went up in price for over 20 percent in Europe are the Classic Small Flap Bag and Reissue 224. Classic Mini Rectangular Flap bag is now going to cost €3500 in Europe (14.8% price increase). The Jumbo went up in price for over 15 percent and now retails €6600. Classic Maxi Flap Bag now retails for €7100. In Europe, Chanel has increased prices on most of their classic bag styles. The only classic bag that hasn’t increased in price yet is the New Medium Boy, staying at the €4980 price tag.
