As you can see by clicking on the chart below, the price of a Classic Chanel Jumbo bag will be $6000, as of May 1. That's almost 100% more than it was in 2009. This season, most styles are increasing in price by about 12%. In the past, we've seen even steeper price jumps. Depending on the popularity of a particular style, bags have skyrocketed as much as 30% in a single year.

In 2009, we proposed that Chanel was attempting to reach a similar price point of the coveted Hermes Birkin bag. Perhaps Chanel is simply staying in step with other luxury brands? After all, the price of a Celine Luggage tote is $3600. We would love to hear your thoughts. Please feel free to share in the comment section below.
