Without further ado (and I do know many of you are heading to Europe soon, what with your countless emails I archived under ‘Why Do Requests For Chanel Prices In Europe Never Stop Coming’), here is possibly the most accurate list of prices you’ll find online at the moment. It took me a while to gather them up, but you’ll find euro prices for Chanel’s Classic Flap, 2.55 and Boy Chanel in this post, which are also officially the 3 best-selling styles from the French house.
Prices do not apply to seasonal variants, or those that come in exotics like python or alligator, only calfskin or lambskin. Also note that there will be further tax rebates, but because the amount will differ from country to country, do check with your Chanel sales associate on this when shopping in Europe.
First up, the Classic Flap. Available in 4 sizes (Small, Medium, Jumbo and Maxi Jumbo), the prices are now EUR2950, EUR3100, EUR3450 and EUR3750 respectively. For the 2.55, there are also 4 sizes and they are known as Mini, Small, Medium and Large, and come in at EUR2950, EUR3100, EUR3450 and EUR3750. If you’ve noticed, despite what it’s called as far as the sizes are concerned, prices are now aligned between the Classic Flap (or Timeless CF) and 2.55 lines.
Last but not least, the Boy Chanel, which has become an icon in her own right. Very much favoured amongst the young (and young-at-heart), they come in 3 general sizes (Small, Medium and Large) and are priced at EUR2500, EUR2650 and EUR3200 respectively.
Before I sign off, there’s one more thing all you first-timers should take note of: Chanel’s new one-bag-per-passport ruling which kicked in this year. And before I forget, always remember to lock your luxury purchases in your suitcases whenever you’re out and about. Don’t ask why, just do it.

A few of you have written in (or left comments on Facebook) asking for prices for a few more pieces, and become I’m happy to oblige whenever I can, here it is. For the Grand Shopping Tote, or GST, it’s EUR1790, the new (and smaller) Petite Shopping Tote (or PST) is EUR1350.
Also, the Cambon WOC and Camellia WOC is priced at EUR1150 each, while the Timeless WOC is EURO1200. Enjoy.
