Less than a year ago, I remember doing a post on Chanel’s increment that saw prices for its Classic Flap in caviar leather going up. Today I was informed that Chanel has increased the prices again with effect from 1 May 2011, which saw an average increase of SGD800 for each size.
In other words, Medium is now SGD5990, Jumbo is now SGD6620 and the Maxi is now SGD7230 for the Classic Flap. For the 2.55 Reissue it is the same price: SGD5990 for the Small (225), SGD6620 for the Medium (226) and SGD7230 for the Large (227).
With the revision, it also means that prices for both the Classic Flap and 2.55 Reissue models are now on par, and is only in effect for classic pieces/colours and does not affect the seasonal releases.
The price increment also applies internationally. With effect from tomorrow, a Jumbo will cost GBP2750 (up from GBP2355) in the UK, while in Paris the Jumbo will now cost EUR3200 (up from EUR2700). In the US, the Jumbo will retail for USD4300 (up from USD3700).
Now go forth and lament. And start saving all over again.
