It’s long overdue, but better late than never, right? As covered previously on this blog, Chanel has harmonised their retail prices worldwide, which in short just means that it now shouldn’t make that much of a difference wherever in the world you are.
Still, because every cent counts (and everyone still wants to know what the current prices are like in Europe), I’ve put together a post that should answer pretty much all of your questions with regard to the Classic Flap, the 2.55 and of course, the Boy.
First up, the Classic Flap and the 2.55, which have similar price points where their sizes are concerned. Now priced at EUR4100, EUR4260, EUR4750 and EUR5160 for sizes Small, Medium (the 11.12), Jumbo and Maxi for the Classic Flap; the prices correspond with the 2.55 in its 4 sizes as well.
Now for the Boy. In its basic ‘entry-level’ calfskin renditions, they are now priced at EUR3420, EUR3720 and EUR4150 respectively for sizes Small, Medium and Large. Which also makes the largest Boy just a tad more than the Classic Flap or 2.55 in Small, something to note for those still on the fence regarding which of the 3 to choose.
And just for those who need to see the prices side by side, in Singapore, for both the Classic Flap and the 2.55, they are SGD6410, SGD6660, SGD7430 and SGD8070 respectively for the 4 sizes. Taking into consideration XE’s conversion rate today, EUR5160 converts to around SGD7780, which means the difference is less than SGD300 for the Classic Flap and 2.55 in the largest size.
In other words, you’ll only really save if you go for the big-ticket items, but as you go down the list, the difference will really become smaller and smaller so it really makes more sense to buy in Singapore and build a beneficial relationship with your preferred SA.
