No Increase on Chanel Maxi and Jumbo

Last month, we reported that Chanel was redesigning their Maxi and Jumbo style Classic Bags. In addition, we were told that Chanel would be raising prices on these styles as part of the design re-vamp.

Chanel shoppers, can sigh a breath of relief. Iana dos Reis Nunes, a spokeperson for the House of Coco, confirmed that the iconic bags were being restyled but stated that the prices will not be increased. In August, the prices of all classic style Chanel bags were increased 20% to 30%. And that's it, for now!

For the record, the Maxi bag is $3,700 and the Jumbo size is $4,000. The updated Maxi and Jumbo bags will more closely resemble the large-style Classic bags with an extra flap, a large double CCs clasp, three flat pockets, a zipped inside pocket and a lip-stick pocket. The new designs will be in stores as part of the Cruise collection, later this month. Full bag details and cruise colors are detailed below.



The Chanel Classic Maxi Bag ($3,700)
20 x 30 x 10 cm
Washed Caviar with White Metal available in: light beige, brown, dark brown, taupe, rust and black

The Chanel Classic Jumbo Bag ($4,000)

You have it wrong.
Prices right now with the single flap:
Jumbo: $3500
Maxi: $3700

Prices for the Cruise collection with the double flap:
Jumbo: $3700
Maxi: $4000

Walk into a Chanel store and find out for yourself. You are posting incorrect information.

100% wrong. Call a Chanel store and ask prices.

Or even better, if you are visit a Chanel trunk show. The bags for sale will be the current prices. The bags that are not for sale yet will be at the new prices.. AT AN INCREASE because they are adding a double flap

Anonymous is right. How could the Jumbo be more expensive than the Maxi anyways? It just doesn't sound right.

Maybe they mean only cruise or seasonal collection or "colored" bags? Regarding pricing i got a jumbo black for 3500 and a red "medium" for 3700 2 wks ago

But the title of your article says NO INCREASE! THAT IS A LIE.
Right at this very moment the prices are:
Jumbo: 3500
Maxi: 3700

For Cruise they are INCREASING to:
Jumbo: 3700
Maxi: 4000

So..... There IS an increase. Why are you posting bad info???

I used to come to this blog for correct info.. not anymore!

spoke to a chanel salesperson @ bloomies the other day. the classic jumbo and maxis are going to go up to $7000 in the next year/year and a half. he explained to me that they are trying to become on par with hermes bags and making themselves only attainable for the elite. He told me the next increase is scheduled for feb so get your classics before they hike up the prices even more!
