After months of guessing, rumors and gossiping about when Chanel will increase their prices, it finally happened in the end of May 2017. This post is an extended edition of the Chanel Price Increase Report 2017.

The hike in prices only occurred in Europe, but is that good news when you’re living abroad like in Australia? Not at all! You see, Europe is a popular shopping place for high fashion goods. People all around the world go to France, Italy, Spain and Germany to purchase iconic handbags from Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton and so on. There are several reasons:

1. First it’s the experience. Buying your favorite handbag in a romantic and fashion city like Paris is like a dream come true.

2. You can take advantage of the tax-refund. Tourist can claim up to 14% tax-refund from the retail price, which feels like getting a bargain comparing to your own country.

3. Regardless of the tax-refund, the retail prices in Europe are still cheaper than any country.

So now that the prices in Europe went up, what does it mean for your wallet? BEFORE the PRICE INCREASE, the Chanel M/L Classic Flap Bag was priced at €4260 euro, which is $6587 SGD (as per 20 June 2017 currency conversion). The price for this bag is $7090 SGD at the Chanel boutique in Singapore

Now let’s calculate the new price. The Chanel M/L Classic Flap Bag is NOW priced at €4480 euro and that is $6931 SGD (as per 20 June 2017 currency conversion). What big difference!

The New Prices Of The Mini Bags

In our previous Chanel Price Increase Report, we mentioned that only the prices of the iconic handbags went up. However, we never talked about the Mini Bags like the Mini squared Flap Bag or the WOCs. They’re important as well because they have the same level of popularity. We can conclude that the prices of these mini accessories have gone up as well. But the real question is how much in euro’s and in percentage. And is it still worth chasing? Well let’s cover them here:

New Chanel WOC Prices In Euro’s

Chanel Classic Quilted WOC €1865 euro €1740 euro
Chanel Boy Classic WOC €1980 euro €1850 euro
Chanel Trendy CC WOC €2410 euro €2250 euro
Chanel Reissue 2.55 WOC €2010 euro €1915 euro
Chanel Camellia WOC €1795 euro €1675 euro
Chanel Futuristic WOC €1800 euro €1800 euro

Differences in Euro And in Percentage

Chanel Classic Quilted WOC €125 euro 7,18%
Chanel Boy Classic WOC €130 euro 7,03%
Chanel Trendy CC WOC €160 euro 7,11%
Chanel Reissue 2.55 WOC €95 euro 4,96%
Chanel Camellia WOC €120 euro 7,16%
Chanel Futuristic WOC €0 euro 0%

The Chanel Classic Quilted WOC, Boy Classic WOC and the Reissue 2.55 WOC are all part of the classic collection and most of them went up by 7%. Only the Chanel Reissue 2.5 WOC was spared and was increased by 5%. The WOCs are less expensive than the larger Classic Flap Bags because they’re much smaller. But the larger Classic Flap Bags only increased by 5%, so the 7% increase for a WOC is quite a lot.

The Trendy CC Tote Bags as well as the Flap Bag version and the Bowling Bag version didn’t increased in prices. So it’s quite surprising to see that Chanel has excluded the Trendy CC WOC. The Trendy CC WOC is now 160 euro more expensive and it’s the biggest increase of them all in terms of euro’s. Other seasonal WOCs like the Chanel Futuristic WOC didn’t hiked in prices at all.

The Prices Of The Chanel Small Clutch With Chain Went Up


Now let’s talk about another popular mini shoulder bag; it’s the Chanel Clutch With Chain. This mini bag is very comparable to the Chanel WOC, but less expensive. Let’s see whether they’ve increased in prices as well:

New Small Clutch With Chain Prices In Euro’s

Chanel Small Clutch with Chain €1460 euro* €1390 euro
Boy Chanel Small Clutch with Chain €1525 euro €1450 euro

*estimated prices

Differences in Euro And in Percentage

Chanel Clutch with Chain €70 euro* 5,04%
Boy Chanel Clutch with Chain €75 euro 5,17%

*estimated prices

Chanel didn’t take it easy on us. The prices of the Chanel Small Clutch with Chain are now around €70 euro more expensive, which a hike of approximately 5%. However, they’re still quite affordable for a mini timeless bag. For those that have already turned their back on the WOCs, perhaps this is a better option. So keep your Chanel dream alive!

The Prices Of The Chanel Wallets Went Up


New Chanel Wallet Prices In Euro’s

Chanel L Flap Wallet €935 €890
Chanel L Flap Wallet (foldable) €885 €840
Chanel Small Flap Wallet €695 €660
Chanel L-Yen Wallet €770 €730
Chanel Zip Around Wallet €945 €900
Boy Chanel Yen Wallet €825 €785
Boy Chanel Long Wallet €940 €895
Chanel Classic Card holder €285 €270
Chanel Classic Keyholder €515 €380

Differences in Euro And in Percentage

Chanel L Flap Wallet €45 5,06%
Chanel L Flap Wallet (foldable) €45 5,36%
Chanel Small Flap Wallet €35 5,30%
Chanel L-Yen Wallet €40 5,48%
Chanel Zip Around Wallet €45 5,00%
Boy Chanel Yen Wallet €40 5,10%
Boy Chanel Long Wallet €45 5,03%
Chanel Classic Card holder €15 5,56%
Chanel Classic Keyholder €135 35,53%

Well then, how about the Wallets? Unfortunately, they have met the same fate like the Classic Flap Bag and the Small Clutch with Chain. All of them became 5% more expensive. While 50 euro is not really a lot if you compare it to bigger handbags, but these are small leather accessories – wallets. Why pay more if you could have got them for less?

Another astonishing price increase that we’ve discovered is the Chanel Classic Keyholder, which is a cute mini coin wallet with a key ring on it. A few months ago, when we wrote an article about it, the price was €380 euro. And today? It’s retailing for €515 euro. Jaw-dropping prices!

So beware for the next price hike, Chanel will continuously punishing those who procrastinated. Let’s us know your thoughts in the comment.

An all weather suit inspired by the Alfa Romeo Giulietta


If Alfa Romeo can devise a car that functions in all weathers, why not design a suit, thought Hawes & Curtis. They worked inexorably on this innovative and fashion-forward concept. Applying the notion of drivers seamlessly being able to adapt the car’s driving capability to handle all weather conditions, they required luxurious and water resistant Italian wool from Hawes & Curtis’ 1913 premium collection made in Italy. Be it UK’s heat-wave or thunderstorm, mesh lining inside the suit regulates the warmth of the body.

Inside the suit, the Giulietta’s distinguishing craft features can be clearly identified. They include the subtle honeycomb grille mesh lining, a commissioned print on the sleeve lining and the elegant red contrast. For chic professionals, a photo shoot was organised in London. An assortment of essential Giulietta accessories with Alfa Romeo’s iconic logo: tie, pocket square, cufflinks, lapel pin and tie slide completed the high-end look. The women’s shirt magnificently revealed artistic features of the car. For example: fluid lines of the car were gracefully spotted in the soft curvatures on the collar and bib.

“The limited edition pieces are inspired by the Giulietta’s refined design features and performance. Beautiful details such as the fluid lines of the car and the characteristic red highlights along the interior upholstery are echoed in the garments. I designed the items having in mind the corporate professionals who appreciate sleek design, attention to detail and impeccable quality.” Kate Regan, the extremely brilliant designer of Hawes & Curtis shared his thought on this project.

Have you finally found the woman you want to give your last name to? Do not wait any longer. Put a ring on it! And that’s when it gets a bit tricky. Finding the perfect ring that will show your feelings for your loved one as well as complement her unique style and taste is becoming more and more difficult.

Nowadays, fashion has become a tool with which we show our personality. There’s a great emphasis on showing uniqueness in the way we present ourselves, with the wardrobe or shoes we wear and especially with the accessories we add to our look.

Typical diamond engagement rings have become somewhat passé in the fashion sense. More creativity needs to be involved with picking the right ring. Don’t worry. We’re here to help you. Read this fashion guide on how you can make her engagement ring stand out and guarantee a “Yes!” when you pop the question.


If the first thing that comes to your mind while thinking about the color you want the engagement ring to be is transparent, then it’s a good thing you’re reading this. Clear cut diamonds have become somewhat of a boring choice given the fact that there are so many other color options to choose from. Think of your soon-to-be-bride’s favorite color and start from there.

Hugely popular, yellow diamond engagement rings are the perfect choice for women who like to stand out from the crowd, thanks to the singular yellow of the diamond. All women know that these diamonds are quite rare with high clarity grading, so your love for her will be crystal clear.

If, on the other hand, her taste is softer, a pink diamond would be the right fit. With the fact that these diamonds are most sought after and among the rarest, your future bride is surely going to feel the same.

If her style is on the edgy side, there’s nothing but a blue diamond that will seal the deal. Known as the most coveted colored diamonds, the striking beauty of blue diamonds will leave your bride-to-be speechless.


Now that you decided on which color will best suit her personality and fashion style, it’s time to think about the shape. The round brilliant cut diamond is by far the most popular and most women wear the shape. If your future bride’s fashion sense is more traditional, you need not read any further.

However, if you’re looking for other creative shapes engagement rings can have, read on.


Princess unique cut with pointed corners and traditionally square shape is a favorite for engagement rings.


Its pavilion, cut with rectangular facets to create a unique optical appearance, is what makes this shape stand out. It is the perfect choice if you want to highlight the clarity of a diamond because of its larger, open table.


The shape of a marquise diamond can give you a much larger-looking diamond. The length of the marquise will make her fingers appear long and slender.

Now that we’ve opened your horizons on how to blend your future bride’s fashion taste with the type of engagement ring she’ll be wearing on her finger, you are set on the right path. Make sure to put as much thought about the manner in which you’ll present it to her.
