Chanel Pricing News Bulletin

Aside from keeping our eyes peeled for all of Chanel’s latest collections, PurseBop has also been carefully tracking all the major changes Chanel has made in the pricing realm. As always, we aim to be your authority for pricing news and handbag math, and our community has been particularly curious about the recent price increases.

The biggest break in the Chanel pricing scheme occurred a few years ago when the company officially announced their effort to maintain harmonious prices across the globe. Since then as currencies such as the euro continue to fluctuate, Chanel has increased prices in various regions to ensure harmonization. The US has been the latest country to receive a pricing update, which has sent Chanel collectors into a frenzy of discussion about the implications of the price creep.

We’ve reported the price increase for each style as they have been released. In case you missed out on any of the news, we’ve compiled all the updates in one easy to read news bulletin!

Explore the excerpts below and continue onto the full posts for more information. If you have thoughts about the latest price increases, don’t forget to join us in the comments on BopTalk and Instagram.


Back in November, we brought you news of the first of many Chanel price increases in the US. The first style to get a substantial increase was the Chanel Classic Flap. See the before and after prices with a handbag math comparison calculating the exact percentage increase!
