Chanel Snuck in a Price Increase For Its Classic Bags at the End of 2017

Other Brands

Often, price increases happen at the beginning of a new year, so when we set about investigating whether or not any of the biggest brands had one coming this month, we found something curious: Chanel had slipped one in for some of its most popular bags in November, while everyone was busy with the holidays. This is the first increase for these bags since early 2014.

Chanel doesn’t formally announce price increases to the public, but from what we’ve been able to gather, the increase affects Classic Flap and 2.55 Flap prices in the US market. Instead of a flat percentage, the amount of increase depends on the size of the bag, with percentages ranging from 6.5% to 8.2%. Although Boy Bag prices usually rise with the brand’s other famous flaps, they seem to have been excluded from this increase. Check out new prices below.

– Mini Classic Flap: Was $3,100, now $3,300
– Medium Classic and 2.55 Flap: Was $4,900, now $5,300
– Jumbo Classic Flap and 2.55 Flap: Was $5,500, now $5,900
– Maxi Classic Flap and 2.55 Flap: Was $6,000, now $6,400

The Large Multifunctional Wallet is the signature wallet of Celine. There are multiple variations created in the past, for example; the Large Multifunction Flap Wallet, the Diagonal Multifunction Large Flap Wallet and the Strap Large Multifunction Wallet.

For the Spring 2018 Collection, there is a very attractive version designed. It’s called the Celine Symmetrical Large Multifunction Wallet and we’d like to call this: the ‘minimalistic with a twist’.

The Design

The Symmetrical Large Multifunction Wallet is clean, streamlined, beautiful, curved and flexible. It fits perfectly into the tradition of this brand, which is minimalism. However, the innocent stripe that cuts right in the center is adding a very captivating twist. It creates a fine line between the left and the right and two symmetrical parts, which also explains its name.

But that’s Celine, it starts with drafting a wallet as simple as possible, then it works from there to find a small twist to add. This tiny little twist will change the overall look of the accessory, just like this center cut.

And even the logo is printed in two parts; the left bottom it reads: ‘Celine Paris’ and the right part it reads: ‘Made In Italy’.

What’s more? This stunning flap wallet is made from calfskin and the most beautiful part about it is not the exterior but the interior.

The Interior


There is a reason why this beauty is named: ‘multifunction’. The interior is packed with multiple pockets to help you organize your daily necessities. You only need one wallet and the Symmetrical Large Wallet provides all the things you need.

Open the wallet with snap buttons. Inside you will find one pocket with gusset, one zipped pocket, two flat pockets and eight credit card slots.

The Prices And Sizes

Measuring 8’ x 4’ inches, priced at $810 USD, €550 EUR, £510 GBP, $1050 SGD, $6300 HKD, $1000 AUD, ¥88000 JPY, ¥5900 CNY via Celine boutiques.

It’s always exciting to meet a new handbag. For the Cruise 2018 Collection, Chanel crafted the Coco Pleats Clutch Bag. The design is fresh and different, but don’t get confused with another handbag that holds the same name – the Quilted Chanel Coco Pleats Bag.

The Design


No diamond quilting or chevron quilting, just cut-out pieces of long leathers stitched together creating a horizontal, vertical and diagonal contrast. The overall design is inspired by Ancient Greek, and the leather choice for the Coco Pleats Bag is Pleated Crumpled Calfskin.

The Crumpled Calfskin was first-introduced on the So Black Classic Flap Bag. It’s also embellished on the Chevron Boy Wallet. This leather looks perfect on vintage handbags.

But anyways, this clutch bag is light-weighed and can be easily carried by hand. Unfortunately it doesn’t come with a shoulder strap. But see this handbag as an alternative to the Chanel O Case.


The center features the signature CC logo, which stands-out like a queen. It’s smoothly crafted in gold hardware.

The Interior

This clutch bag is thin just like the O Case. You will not be able to store a lot of stuff inside, but only your evening essentials. This clutch bag is ideal to match with one of your evening dresses.

Loving Lately: Functional and Incredibly Chic, the Prada Monochrome Bag Stole My Heart

Other Brands

For as far back as I can remember, I have loved and lusted after Prada bags. I can even pinpoint when my love started: it goes all the way back to 2002. Every girl in my grade was carrying some variation of either a Prada Backpack, a Louis Vuitton Monogram Pochette or a Coach bag. I wanted one of each, but I knew I would be lucky to get one, so I settled on the one that was most attainable and was excited when I got a Coach bag for Christmas in 7th grade. Though I felt cool carrying it around, I still wanted that darn Prada Nylon Backpack! I guess 7th grade me was foreshadowing 27-year-old me—I still love, and want, it all.

I’ve always got Prada on my radar—they truly make some of the best bags around—and like all of us here at PurseBlog, I’ve always loved the Prada Galleria Bags. There’s so much about them that I love, and though they are timeless and classic, at this stage of my life, I can’t see myself carrying it day to day. I tend to lean towards trendier pieces, which I may regret someday, but hey, I’m still young and I’ve got to learn on my own! Though the Galleria might not be for me just yet, I fell in love when I saw the Prada Monochrome Bag. The shape and size is very similar to the Galleria, but the monochrome hardware makes the bag seem a bit trendier and chic in an understated way, yet the shape is still a classic. It’s like a perfect storm of characteristics, and suddenly I must have this bag.

The monochrome bag is crafted in Prada’s signature Saffiano leather and lined with Prada’s signature lining. Inside, there is one slit pocket and one zippered pocket, which is ideal for keeping your phone and wallet secure. The shoulder strap is completely removable, should you wish to carry this strictly as a top handle. And finally, the reason I love this bag: the monochrome black-on-black logo is incredibly chic. Overall dimensions are 9.8 H x 13 W x 6 D. Available for $1,990 via Neiman Marcus.

One after another, Bottega Veneta figured out how to trigger out bag obsession. First they tease us with the new Piazza Bag, which an excellent shoulder bag mixed with smooth leather and Intrecciato. And now they have released the Bottega Veneta Montebello Bag in the beginning of this season. Not only is the name adorable, but the variations of styles are gorgeous too.

The Montebello Bag is everything but boring. You can have yours in solid color, but there are more exciting choices available. For example in beautiful multicolor pink or with flower embellishments.

This bag is designed in squared shape and it’s basically a compact clutch with chain. However, it’s also perfect to use as a daily shoulder bag because it comes with a chic-yet-practical chain strap.

The body of the Montebello Bag is crafted with hand-woven nappa, it gives the bag a luminous touch. The solid colors are made from metallic-effect nappa, which gives the handbag the shine it needs to help you flaunt.

More over, because of its lightweight, this bag is easy to hold from day to night. The Intrecciato Nappa design is screaming Bottega Veneta whenever you are on the go. It’s ideal for daily use but also for special occasions because it looks both chic and classy.

The Interior


Open the trimmed-smooth-leather flap to get into the gusseted interior. The inside is quite simple and easy to help you organize. There are two compartments and the spacious is limited due to its size. Only basic essentials are allowed to get in.
