We’ve been eyeing like a hawk on the Chanel Chevron Medal Flap Bag since it was launched in the Pre-Fall 2018 Collection. It’s such an astonishing handbag with fine details that can make anyone obsessive. It’s distinctive because no components have been copied from the classics yet the design looks so timeless. And even tough it’s a seasonal bag; beauty does come with a price. We can say that the price tag is evenly matching to the Classic Flap Bag, or perhaps even higher. But let’s do a comparison to find out.

The Design


Chanel creates two kinds of diamond quilting; the puffy quilting like in lambskin or the flat quilting like the Chanel Flat Quilted Clutch With Chain.

But what we don’t often see is the flat quilted chevron leather. We know the puffy chevron quilting exists. But the flat chevron quilting?

Oh well, perhaps that’s what makes this Chevron Medal Flap Bag special. It’s designed with flat chevron quilting with beautiful vivid stitches. The bag is made from calfskin and we can feel the durability just by looking at the picture.


The Chevron Medal Flap Bag will definitely hold shape and there are two details that are very eye-catching. First the newest CC closure on the center of the flap. This CC logo is built like a chevron medal. The color of the top part matches to the shade of the bag. It’s also embellished with the CC logo. The bottom part is refined with gold hardware for the shimmering effect. It’s also embellished with the house’s signature that reads: ‘Chanel Paris’.

The chain strap is even more fine-looking. The chain must be inspired by a jewel-like wear, like a necklace or a bracelet. The chain looks fabulous and elegant. The chain is also connected to a leather strap for shoulder or cross body carry.

Overall, this bag is a great investment partly because it’s seasonal and thus a limited edition piece. The overall design is crafted to last-forever, forever-in-fashion.

The Chanel Chevron Medal Flap Bag vs Classic Flap Bag


Let’s compare the medium-sized of the Chanel Chevron Medal Flap Bag with the Medium Classic Flap Bag. Which bag is bigger, and what’s the price?

The Chanel Medium Chevron Medal Bag is measured 6.3’ x 2.8’ x 9.1’ inches and it’s priced at $4600 USD. The Chanel Medium Classic Flap Bag is measured 6’ x 2.5’ x 10’ inches and it’s priced at $5300 USD.

So what’s the conclusion?

The Medium Chevron Medal Bag is about the same size of the Medium Classic Flap Bag. It’s bigger in some parts but also smaller in other parts. But overall, they can be matched.

The Medium Chevron Medal Bag is priced at $4600 USD while the Classic Flap Bag is priced at $5300 USD. So this seasonal bag is also slightly cheaper too.

So what do you think? Would you rather choose this bag or the Classic Flap Bag?

The first rumor circulated two months ago that Chanel would increase prices in April 2017 – but that never happened. Should we say that we were lucky? Or did we just dodge one bullet?

Well, we have some bad news and good news. Let’s start with the bad news. Chanel has just increased their prices and like always there were no warnings or pre-announcement – they just did it.

If you walk into the boutique right now and purchase a handbag, you will be slammed with the new price tag. It’s a punishment for procrastinating an extra day. So the question about Chanel will never be; ‘Will they increase their prices’, but instead it should be: ‘When will they increase?’.

But there is good news as well, let’s covered that one.

Which Countries Experienced The Price Increase?

We did a research about the prices as soon as we got informed. We compared the prices of different countries to see the effect of this new policy. The biggest question we had was; where did the prices go up and also where did the prices go down?

Go down? Yes there is a bag that has a price decrease! Surprised right? This is also a part of the good news, we will let you know more later on

Now, let’s answer the burning question of this topic. Which countries are hit by Chanel’s latest policy? Here are the results of the research:

United States No Price Increases
Europe Yes, Price Increased
United Kingdom No Price Increase
Singapore No Price Increase
Hong Kong No Price Increase
Australia No Price increase
Japan No Price Increase
Canada No Price increase either

There you go, so the only place where Chanel did a hike in prices is Europe. Is that good news? Not really, because Europe is big remember? It consists of many well-known countries like France the city of fashion, Italy the city of famous leather craftsmanship and our other favorite travel countries like Spain, Germany and Netherlands.

Europe is also a popular place to shop Chanel, especially for tourists. It’s the place where it’s guaranteed that you get an authentic handbag for relatively lower prices than in the US, UK, Asia and other expensive places like Japan and Australia. So the price increase is actually a rip in our heart and especially for those that are addicted to Chanel – now you need to pay more for your medicine.

What’s does new prices in Europe mean for you? Let’s answer that question after we show you all the new Chanel retail prices in Europe.

Chanel New Prices In Europe

The Classic Bags

Chanel Mini Classic Flap Bag (Square) Prices €2360 euro €2250 euro
Chanel Small Classic Flap Bag €3990 euro €4100 euro
Chanel Medium/Large Classic Flap Bag €4480 euro €4260 euro
Chanel Jumbo Classic Flap Bag €4990 euro €4750 euro
Chanel Maxi Classic Flap Bag €5420 euro €5160 euro

The Chanel Small Classic Flap Bag Decreased In Price

Did you noticed? If not, then here’s the truth; the price of the Chanel Small Classic Flap Bag actually decreased while all other Classic Bag prices went up. A coincidence? Maybe not, because Chanel might be pushing us to buy more of the Small Classic Flap Bag instead of the other sizes. Or the Small size is not as popular as the others, so the price decreased. But whatever the reason, it’s a bang for your bucks!

The Reissue 2.55 Bags

Chanel Reissue 2.55 Size 224 Bag €3990 euro €4100 euro
Chanel Reissue 2.55 Size 225 Bag €4480 euro €4260 euro
Chanel Reissue 2.55 Size 226 Bag €4990 euro €4750 euro
Chanel Reissue 2.55 Size 227 Bag €5420 euro €5160 euro

Chanel Small Boy Flap Bag €3660 euro €3420 euro
Chanel Old Medium Boy Flap Bag €3980 euro €3720 euro
Chanel New Medium Boy Flap Bag €4440 euro €4150 euro
Chanel Large Boy Flap Bag €4760 euro €4450 euro

So there you go. Now you know the new retail prices in Europe and you know how much it has been increased versus the previous time as well. Which leads us to the next question. So how steep is the price increase this time?

How Big Is The Impact Of The Price Hike?

It’s good to know the numbers. But if you look at it and see that the price of the Small Boy Chanel Flap Bag increased from €3420 to €3660 euro, you might think: ‘hmm, it’s 200 euro, not really big deal’. But the truth unveils when we change the numbers to percentages. Then you will see the full effect of the price increases beyond the curtains. Are you ready to put your Virtual Glasses on to see the truth? Check them out here.

Chanel Mini Classic Flap Bag (Square) Prices +4.88%
Chanel Small Classic Flap Bag -2.68%
Chanel Medium/Large Classic Flap Bag +5.16%%
Chanel Jumbo Classic Flap Bag +5.05%
Chanel Maxi Classic Flap Bag +5.04%

The Chanel Classic Flap Bag has increased by around 5% and so is the Chanel Reissue 2.55 Bag because both bags have the same prices. Now that you know that its around 5% increase, would you think differently?

Ask yourself, what could you’ve done with the extra €220 euro? Maybe a new Chanel Wallet that goes with that bag. Or perhaps new Chanel Classic Earrings. Or maybe a new pair of flats?

Let’s also take a look at the Boy Bags, shall we?

Chanel Small Boy Flap Bag +7.01%
Chanel Old Medium Boy Flap Bag +6.98%
Chanel New Medium Boy Flap Bag +6.98%
Chanel Large Boy Flap Bag +6.96%

So there you go, the Chanel Boy Bag went up by 7% while the Classic Flap Bags and the Reissue 2.55 Bag increased by 5%+. Should you be happy about it? Not really. Why? Check this out:

Chanel Mini Classic Flap Bag (Square) Prices €110 euro
Chanel Small Classic Flap Bag -€110 euro
Chanel Medium/Large Classic Flap Bag €220 euro
Chanel Jumbo Classic Flap Bag €240 euro
Chanel Maxi Classic Flap Bag €260 euro

And now for the boys:

Chanel Small Boy Flap Bag €240 euro
Chanel Old Medium Boy Flap Bag €260 euro
Chanel New Medium Boy Flap Bag €290 euro
Chanel Large Boy Flap Bag €310 euro

Here we can make two conclusions:
1). The goal was to increase the prices by €200 – €300 euro and because the Boy Bags were more expensive, the price increase in % was lower, but the effect was the same like the Chanel Classic Flap Bag.
2). The bigger the bag you purchase, the higher the price increase. If today you purchase the Small Boy Flap Bag, you pay €240 euro extra. But if you get the Large Boy Chanel Flap Bag, then you need to pay €310 euro extra, which is 70 euro more price increase than the Small one.

Now what could you do with that extra €310 euro? New Chanel Earrings? Wallet? Shoes?

Did Chanel Also Increased The Prices Of The Seasonal Handbags?

We’re going to start rolling good news from now on. The recent price rises were only applied to the Classic and Iconic handbags like the Classic Flap Bag, the Reissue 2.55 Bag and the Boy Bags. So when we mention these bags, we mean all the related styles, like the latest Boy Bag with Chain Around design, the Classic Flap Bag in new embroideries or the Reissue 2.55 Bags with Iconic Charms.

Chanel has left the seasonal bag prices the same (for now). But you can be certain that they will not take it easy on you when the next collection is released – meaning the next collection will be more expensive.

Because we know certain seasonal handbags have become increasingly popular and you might question whether they were increased in prices, we will cover them as well.

Chanel Classic Clutch With Chain

Haven’t you noticed? There is a new Wallet with Chain in town and it’s boldly competing against the classic Chanel Wallet On Chain Bag. Whether your like it or not depends entirely on your personal preference of course, but we can tell you now that’s packed with doses of addiction that will make your heart melt faster than a lonely ice cream lost in the dessert.


Chanel Clutch with Chain vs Chanel WOC

The Chanel Chain with Clutch is what Chanel calls it on their website. But to tell you the truth, it’s actually a Chanel Wallet On Chain Bag because it looks like one and it functions like one. But to avoid any confusion, let’s just stick with the original name. There are four important subject to talk about; first is the design, second is the size, then the interior. Oh you will adore this bag, that I can tell you now.

The Design

The Chanel Chain with Clutch is shorter than the Chanel WOC, but it doesn’t lack anything that will stir your attention away. The bag might be short but it’s super cute especially when you sling it on your shoulder. It’s the ideal Wallet on Chain because it looks similar to the Chanel Zip Around Wallet, which is another classic btw. So if the Chanel WOC is the flap wallet with chain, then this bag should be the zipped around wallet with chain right?

It’s quilted, refined with woven chain strap as well as the interlocking cc signature logo. It comes with a zip attached to leather tag. The bag is simple, minimal but it strongly attracting eyes because of the elements that are simulated to the Classic Flap Bag.

The Chanel Clutch with Chain is so popular now that it has expanded in more areas like the Boy design and seasonal pieces with braided chevron. The Boyish design is packed with elements inspired by the Boy Chanel Bag like the iconic Boy Clasp and the nicely stitched edges. What’s surprising is that Chanel kept the ladylike Chain on the boy version instead of switching to a bolder chain, but we’re certainly not disappointed.

The price of this bag is also lower than the Chanel WOC, which makes it perfect for those that wants to own their own evening bag.

The Interior

The interior is different than the WOC. We take you into an exclusive look. As you can see on the image above, it’s made with double pockets. The first one is on the front and it’s smaller in size. This pocket is made for the easy-access to your quick essentials like coins or paper money. The second one is on the back and is larger in space, this is where you store more important essentials. Moreover, the interior is made in Fabric

A Classic

Just to let you know, the Chanel Chain with Clutch is now promoted to the classic collection. The most timeless design to brag is the diamond or in chevron quilting. The boyish version is also a beautiful gem. Up until now, Chanel has released seasonal pieces in each season.

The Prices, Sizes and Style code

Chanel Clutch with Chain is much more less expensive than the WOC. But the WOC is also slightly more deluxe and it’s bigger. The Clutch with Chain is more handier because it easier and simpler.

The Chanel Classic Quilted WOC is currently retailing for $2100 USD, €1740 euro, £1630 GBP, $2900 SGD. Compare that to the Chanel Classic Clutch with Chain, which is priced at $1550 USD, €1390 euro, £1300 GBP, $2190 SGD. A big difference, isn’t?

The biggest challenge in shopping is to choose when there is more than one bag that you like. And everyone must have experienced this before, especially when you go to a boutique like ‘Chanel’. Now, life is already hard. And it’s even harder because the Boy Chanel Bag comes in different slightly modified styles like ‘Chevron Quilting’, ‘in Multicolor Tweeds’ or ‘Chain Around’. And if you cannot choose, then its best to just pick the iconic style – the Boy Chanel Quilted Bags.

But there is one more dilemma you have to face and that’s to pick the right color. You see, the blue looks very interesting, but the beige seems to be perfect for all season. Or the burgundy color, which is not too red and attention grabbing, but still attractive. Then the lipstick red is popping out and perhaps you should just go with that one…only this time.

After that, you still need to choose your favorite hardware and the size. Or you can stick with the basics: The Boy Chanel Medium Quilted Flap Bag in Black.


The Boy Chanel Medium Quilted Flap Bag in Black is usually sold-out everywhere. This combination of the Boy Bag is most picked because:

a). The size is just right for many women.
b). The color is easily to match with any clothing style
c). The combination of the color and quilting is timeless

Now, check out the colors available for this season. For the latest prices, you can check this bag: Chanel Iconic Bag Prices.

Chanel released an unique piece for the Spring Summer 2017 Collection Act 1 – a brand-new Chanel Chevron Flap Bag. Besides the Chevron Quilting, this bag is embellished with an distinctive part-hardware and part-leather CC logo.
V Lai purchased this bag in Neiman Marcus for $2800 USD, she saw it in red as well as in black and picked the black color. She is 5’, so the size as well as the crossbody chain length fits perfectly on her.

And here’s another image inside her bag; one small classic Chanel wallet and one iPhone 7. This bag is gorgeous and timeless, but it’s only available this season.

V Lai, Congrats with your new purchase!
