The Chanel 2024 Price Increase Is Here

Thankfully, it's not all bad news

Chanel has released its new pricing structures for 2024. We knew it was inevitable, as Chanel’s chief financial officer, Philippe Blondiaux, signaled two years ago that Chanel was going to implement regular, bi-annual price increases “to account for currency fluctuations and inflation.”

While Chanel has continued to cite inflation and the ever-increasing rise in the cost of both materials and labor, its exorbitant price hikes have consistently come under fire from critics and fans alike.

Still, the brand instills yearly price increases as it aims to further align itself at the top of the luxury food chain, sitting with the likes of Hermès.

The Classic Flap and Reintroduction of the 11.12

Ahead of this 2024 increase, Chanel has once again campaigned to prove to its fans that its Classic Flap, which now retails for $10,800, a whopping 86% higher than its 2019 price of $5,800, is a great investment.

Ahead of its Fall/Winter 2024 show, the brand released a new campaign starring Penelope Cruz and Brad Pitt to emphasize the timelessness and value of the iconic Classic Flap. It’s also important to note that Chanel renamed the Medium Flap to the 11.12, which is a nod to the old name.

Bruno Pavlovsky, President of Fashion at Chanel, told WWD, “Price increases can become an issue when the quality doesn’t match the cost,” going on to insist that the House works hard to increase the quality and craft of its products.

Pavlovsky believes that its brand loyalists will understand, despite fans continuously lamenting that the excessive price increases are not warranted, citing quality control issues and the trend towards investing in vintage Chanel instead of new.

The 2024 Price Increase In Numbers

The increase affects all Chanel bags across the board, but the percentage increase is far lower than what we’ve come to expect in the past few years. Last year, the Classics were hit with a 16% increase on average, while this year only sees a 6.7% increase for the classic styles.

This marks a significant shift in pricing strategy, a trend consumers hope will cause other fashion houses to follow suit.

Classic BagsNew PriceOld Price% Increase
Chanel Classic Mini Square Flap Bag$5,000$4,7006.4%
Chanel Classic Mini Rectangular Flap Bag$5,200$4,9006.1%
Chanel Classic Small Flap Bag$10,400$9,6008.3%

Chanel Coco Handle Mini$5,600$5,4003.7%
Chanel Coco Handle Small$6,200$5,9005%

The Maxi Classic Flap now retails for a whooping $12,300, priced right in the same ballpark as a 30cm Hermès Togo Birkin.

Chanel Medium Boy Flap Bag$6,900$6,6004.5%
Chanel Large Boy Flap Bag$7,300$7,0004.3%

The Boy bags increased by less than 5%, a figure that is right in line with the US’s 2023 inflation rate of 4.1%.

A similar story is told for the Chanel 19 lineup of bags.

Chanel Kelly Bag and SLG Kelly

Chanel 22 Large Backpack$5,800$5,800
The Chanel 22 line of bags saw no price increase this year.

Where Do We Go From Here?

Despite the ever-increasing prices, demand for Chanel continues to skyrocket, with plenty of bags still sold before they ever hit the boutique, letting you know that while shoppers are highly critical of its practices, it isn’t pricing out its core customers, and that is exactly who Chanel continues to cater to.

We’ll continue updating this article once more information becomes available.

They also need to allow for a better repair service. At Hermes for a price they will repair almost anything, even at Louis. Chanel over 5 years they want receipts. That shouldn’t be needed. As an example I have a GST Ive carried twice. Bought it from Neiman’s over the phone. The store receipt is practically transparent 10 years later and you can’t read the ink. If I need service on this bag at some point I shouldn’t have an issue.

Anyone else over the “same bag in every size” phase?
As I get older, my desire to have multiple sizes of the same Chanel bag has greatly diminished.
As the price increases and the quality decreases, I appreciate indie brands more and more. They’re much more unique, not ubiquitous and you don’t see every other person carrying it.

Yes this is where I am a currently! It all became a bit like toys for adults and while my love of bags is truly lifelong, collecting is definitely not for me. Realistically nothing is an investment unless it is completely unused and that takes away from the joy of it. Sadly luxury brands think that exclusivity just means jacking up prices. I kind of wish Chanel would make the flap 30k and they can reap the failure they so richly deserve. Most truly wealthy people I know bought their years ago and are not regular bag customers, clothes are another matter.

It’s remarkable to witness the enduring allure of Chanel amidst rising prices. This phenomenon underscores the timeless appeal and prestige associated with the brand. Despite economic fluctuations, Chanel’s reputation for luxury, craftsmanship, and iconic design continues to captivate consumers worldwide, fueling unprecedented demand. It’s a testament to the brand’s unwavering commitment to excellence and its ability to transcend trends, making it a symbol of enduring elegance and sophistication.

I think at a surface level it would seem like these statements are correct; however, I would argue that the maintained demand is due to “panic buying” from consumers who are afraid to be out priced in 5 minutes. It’s also from consumers who buy the bag for status or the appeal of it, when they are not a regular Chanel client (she drives a jeep and has a classic flap. I would be in that category if I had one).

It’s the marketing and scarcity of specific designs (although they churn out collections like Forever 21) that are driving demand. Not quality and heritage as in the past.

And the ultra-wealthy don’t care, it doesn’t affect them. I can only imagine what that must be like.

Well, according to Vogue business Chanel’s “annual profits surged 171% in 2020. Revenues reached $15.6 billion up 49.6% compared to 2019. Operating profit reached $5.5 billion, a 57.5% increase on pandemic 2019”. So, while their operating costs have gone up their profit margin is dramatically increasing as well. They can keep raising their prices, in an attempt to justify them, but I’m tapped out. These increases will push me to continue to shop at Hermes, Dior, etc. where the prices are still high, but more in line for luxury products.

I’m loving these price increases and while previously I felt a sense of urgency when my SA would let me know one is coming, I now no longer care. In fact given these bags are everywhere and luxury has become so ubiquitous, I find myself wanting it less. At the end of the day we can’t take these things to the grave and how many flaps are necessary?? I’m finding myself drawn to more unique, interesting designs these days and I’d rather throw my $10k at bitcoin than these “investments.” Au revoir Chanel! But glad you figured out it might be time to invest some effort in quality haha

I have zero interest in Hermes because of “the game” not into some SA deciding if I’m worthy. Chanel is subtle but its very obvious items are held by SAs . Chanel should stop that, its gross. As for investments , nope the secondhand needs to profit. And its that market that created this. I do love Chanel but it was nice to just decide to treat yourself or save fo something and go do it. Now its another source of stress. Seems their profits are up, but ,the pleasure principle down. I have been enjoying my Bottega. You can walk in. play buy or not . no pressure even more enjoyment. I work hard for the occasional item, tired of the pleasure being taken away by these brands trying to be exclusive when really the secondhand market has made that not to be possible, despite what the conjure up

Couldn’t agree more. What a wonderful experience traveling to Paris and coming home with a bag and appreciating the VAT discount on your way out. But now at Hermes you have to spend every evening at 7 PM online trying to score a coveted appointment slot at one of their three boutiques to ”allow” you to purchase what they offer you. I tried for seven days in a row and failed every time between my iPad and iPhone at 6:59pm on the dot. At 7 PM all reservations were taken. I went in the night before I traveled home and explained to the hostess my plight, and for some reason she asked me to step aside and asked if I could wait, and 20 minutes later, the sales associate took me to a counter and offered me one of two bags only. The Evelyne in either taupe or black. Now I am thrilled with the taupe/gold hardware and paid about 60% of what I would’ve paid in the US. But the audacity does not escape me. I have my share of Hermes products. A previous Evelyne bag, Oran sandals, many bracelets and scarves. But definitely not a big spender to be offered a Kelly or Birkin or Constance. Honestly, I found the entire experience exhausting. I went to the Chanel boutique inside Printemps with an appointment I made the day before and that SA was waiting for me with a latte and about 12 bags to choose from. I purchased two, and a pair of sunglasses, and I walked out of there downright giddy. That’s how it should be done.

This! I find Chanel to be ludicrously priced, but the customer service (even with its reputation) is SO much better than Hermes lately. I would buy a really special Chanel bag (especially since I don’t resell anymore, “holding it’s value” is not a concern for me) – I would not bother with Hermes’ games.

As children starve to death all around the world, people glorifying these brands are either indifferent to the human condition or too preoccupied with their sense of self-worth to realize that ONE bag from Chanel could save the lives of dozens of kids. Put your privilege to good use and stop wasting money and resources are these illusions only meant to flatter your egos.

Perhaps you should do your trolling on a different forum or are you just seeking attention? I know you don’t go to movies. go out to dinner, or own a smartphone=right?because that money is surely spent by you on saving starving children.

I’ve spent thousands going on medical missions, assisting in surgeries with my medical team and helping others because I have the honor and privilege of doing so. I donate hundreds to animal charities. However, I also do not feel the need to spam the world and publicize what I do on social media. Nor do I feel the need to berate other people on what they do with their own money. And you know, on the side, I also buy handbags. What I do is not a justification for what I buy. I do what I want and what is within my limits and it’s as simple as that.

There’s always someone who brings up starving children when expensive bags or jewelry purchases are discussed. You have no way of knowing what people give to charity and it’s not your business to scold someone like this. Charity and expensive purchases can exist together. And I (like to) imagine that when one can afford expensive purchases, one is also generous in charitable giving.

This is your logic: “I have $10,000 of disposable income. I give $5,000 to UNICEF, which will feed fifty children for a year. I spend the remaining $5,000 on a Chanel purse because I would rather impress my friends with a bag than save another fifty kids.”

This will be unpopular but I’m almost embarrassed wearing my Chanels for the past several years. Gauche, loud, wannabe – apologies but that’s my take.

At my local Chanel boutique, demand has cooled compared to 1 or 2 years ago and is no longer skyrocketing.

Hermès has been increasing prices quite significantly in recent years too, but for me it still feels more worth the high price tag with the saddle stitching and ability to bring the bag in for repairs decades later. I also like how they gave all their employees a special €4000 bonus for the last couple of extremely profitable years.

Now this is quite annoying. Chanel keeps increasing its prices but decreasing on quality. Obviously Chanel’s trying to be Hermes but the quality sucks! Once you got your classic flop, do you need another one with the same old design but in different color and size? Come on now! IMHO, If I’ll get my 1st Chanel flop bag, I’ll choose the practical SIZE and Color then move on to another brands.

Hermes actually plates their hardware with precious metal. They offer lifetime service. Their bags are often hand-stitched. And, in terms of my personal experience with both stores, Hermes was so much friendlier; Chanel is the one that made me feel like I didn’t belong and was wasting their time asking about bags that had waitlists. I only have one H bag (picotin), but love a lot of things there. There’s no comparison; Chanel tries to raise prices to their level while not offering comparible materials, craftsmanship and service.

I have two Chanel flap bags both black one silver, one gold, one more current, one old. And that’s it. I cannot justify spending that kind of money in this climate. I feel the people at Chanel are tone deaf-they arent ‘reading the room’. Everything is expensive anymore and there is not a lot of disposable income. However, that probably does not apply to people who shop at Chanel. I guess Im just over it all. Im going to look at lesser known brands but with great quality

No matter how hard it tries, Chanel will never be in the category of Hermes (and I’m not even an Hermès fanatic). Between outrageous price hikes, diminished quality, kitsch design and marketing (I’m not saying it’s all bad, just catered to trends and fast fashion), it is damaging the brand in my eyes.

I’ve been a bag lover since I was a tween (before social media drove luxury purchases and skyrocketed handbag status) and always wanted a classic flap. Now I don’t foresee ever owning one and I’m not that sad about it. I’m more sad they have strayed from their lame trying to be something they’re not.

Yes, eBay has protections, for which I’m grateful, because I bought a bag and seller “promised it was authentic”, but it wasn’t and I got my money back. However, I’ve also read that eBay buyers charge a bag, then tell their credit card company the charge is fraudulent, and the seller is out the bag and money. Idk, if this is true, but there are too many scams. I’ve also sold to AFF & it takes awhile, but I get back 85% of the sale price, which is a nice profit. I will probably go that route with my Maxi.
