The Ultimate International Price Guide: The Chanel Classic Flap Bag

With updated pricing information as of April 2020

Editors Note: This price guide was originally published in 2015, and is one of the most visited posts on our site. Today we’ve updated it to reflect the most up to date pricing information available.

Although plenty of information factors into the purchase of any particular bag, there’s one fact that likely holds more sway than others for almost all shoppers: price. In our Ultimate Bag Guides, we give you a look at how popular bag designs are priced by size, but that information was always limited to the American market and US dollars—until now. We’re in the midst of building an easier way for consumers to compare prices in different markets around the world, but we wanted to go ahead and get the ball rolling with a price guide for one of the most iconic bags in the world: the Chanel Classic Flap Bag.

If you’re looking for information on dimensions, size names, leathers or hardware, the Classic Flap’s Ultimate Bag Guide is the place to look; as a supplement to that, we’ve created an international price guide for eight prominent global fashion markets, which you can find below. Because Chanel Classic Flap Bag prices can be hard to find, we’ve done our best to find the most accurate pricing information for each size, in each market. If you have a more up-to-date price for one of the sizes listed, please let us know.

All prices listed below are for the Classic Flap in its three most common materials: lambskin, caviar or patent leather. Prices for each country are listed in local currency. Happy shopping.

Looks like we won’t have as many Asians coming to the US to buy Chanel. After converting currency, the prices are nearly the same.

I was curious about exchange rates and I was surprised to find that when exchanged to US$, the prices are much lower than the US price for all the countries listed except for Australia! For the jumbo, CA $6650 is about US $5000!

Why is there such a huge price difference between the mini and the small?

I know that mini is single flap and small is double flap, but realistically, I think it’s because small and medium are more popular so they experienced higher price increases over the years. That’s my best educated guess.

Thanks for this, I have been trying to find prices to see where I should buy my maxi and it seems after all the conversions and taxes that for the sake of $100 I’ll buy it at home, thanks again, brilliant

In Europe will get good 17% refund in taxes
On average $600 less in Europe for sure

Yes, but remember that when you buy in euros you get the VAT(taxes) back in the airport so it actually makes it much cheaper to buy in Europe with the current exchange rate. You can basically buy your ticket to whatever country you want AND buy the bag for the same as the USD price.

TMA, this is great advice, unfortunately for me I’m an EU resident, so no VAT refund, but I wouldn’t mind being a US citizen so I could have a new maxi and a holiday for the same price… great recommendations

Yes, glad I got my small in USD when our dollar was high. Now want a medium and doing the math whether to buy pre-loved or new. With our low dollar plus tax some of the pre-loved work out more expensive than new locally!!!!

Absolutely but if you’re like me taking multiple connecting flights, it might be worth it to plan the flights so you pass through one of these cities and take a 2 night break. Tax refund in Europe can be 10% – 13%. If you combine your designer purchases (shoes + bags) on a single trip the savings add up. I checked and YSL shoes can be $300 less PER PAIR! Your savings offset the hotel plus you’ll have a wider selection. Two days ago the Euro was only 1.06 to the dollar.

I wouldn’t fly to Paris just to buy one bag.
Well, come to think of it… I would if I could afford it! How fun!!

I’ve been to Singapore, Hong Kong and Taipei recently (on business) and I’m telling you, Chanel boutiques don’t have any of these classic flaps in stock!! They only have the seasonal flaps (one of each, usually). I almost bought a medium iridescent flap bag but opted to “stick to the mission” and continue my search for a medium black caviar classic double flap with gold hardware!! It’s a challenge to find it! It’s gotten to the point that if I actually see one in stock in a Chanel boutique, the price would not matter!

(By the way, this info might be pertinent: I just picked up a beige GST in Taipei last week. The Chanel boutique had beige and black in stock. New arrival they said. I asked if its true that they were discontinuing and the SAs did not hear anything. They said the classic flap was far more rare than the GST! They said that the classic flap barely came in this whole year! Hmm, interesting!)

I live in Paris and my SA keeps me informed whenever one of my wished bags arrives…
I know they have classic flap in store stock even in caviar …! But they usually tell tourists that they don’t have any so they would buy other seasonal bags knowing that they will buy at least one bag anyway after such long flight there …

My classic flap was purchased at the Chanel store in Rome, near the Spanish Steps. Walked right in and got exactly what I wanted, black lambskin with silver hardware. Didn’t seem to be any big deal and clearly wasn’t sold out – maybe I just got lucky.

This is really helpful, thanks! I’m planning to get a Jumbo in black caviar this spring, so fingers crossed I can find one! I will first try the store in Zurich, but will look elsewhere if needed. Or, if they have a list, I’m willing to wait. It’s a classic bag, so if I have to wait several months or a year, it will be still be in style.

I was in Nice in September and bought a WOC. With the exchange rate and VAT refund i saved about $400US. I also asked about the GST and was told that they discontinued the old version. I live in NYC and have been told the same thing. The SA in France showed me the new style (not sure if they are calling it the GST) which seemed much larger and bulkier with flaps over the top opening. I’m still hoping they bring back the older style that just has the chain straps. If buying overseas remember to get all the paperwork at the boutique and get your refund BEFORE going through customs.

If these CDN prices are correct, and with our Canadian dollar currently at $0.73 to the US dollar as of this morning… you could fit a plane ticket in the difference!

Purchase my jumbo flap caviar in Paris, June 2014. Price was $4,850 was given paperwork at Chanel store, received $700 cash back at airport. Found out, if I had put refund back credit card and not took the cash, refund would’ve been larger.
Purchase bag at original store on Rue Cambon. Hope this helps you gals.

How accurate are these prices? I just called the Vancouver Chanel boutique (inside Holt Renfrew) and was quoted $6825 for the Jumbo.

Great guide. But I was wondering why in this guide says that tha extra mini classic flap is U$ 2.000,00 In US while in other sites (and even in an earlier PB chanel guide) says that it it U$ 2.400,00. What would be the correct value for this classic flap size in american Chanel boutiques? Thanks in advance.

The bag in back, on the top banner photo I sure hope is a fake..the diamonds don’t match on the flap where it meets the body of the bag. If it’s Chanel, they’re slipping!

I recently read an article that talked about the artisans and how the older ones are no longer making bags and the newer ones either don’t have the skill level or just don’t produce the same level of quality bags that we know and love.

IMHO going forward I don’t know that I would invest that kind of money into a new bag. I hope it gets better in the future.

I bought my maxi in Dubai 5 years ago. At the time the euro was weak and I got a matching wallet with the bag for the price of just the bag in the UK stores. I’m so glad my husband encouraged me to buy it. I couldn’t afford it at these prices.
