Chanel: Euro Prices For Classic Flap, 2.55 & Boy (2015)

Categories:Other Brands

chanel_euro-prices-classic-flap-255-boy-2015It’s long overdue, but better late than never, right? As covered previously on this blog, Chanel has harmonised their retail prices worldwide, which in short just means that it now shouldn’t make that much of a difference wherever in the world you are.

Still, because every cent counts (and everyone still wants to know what the current prices are like in Europe), I’ve put together a post that should answer pretty much all of your questions with regard to the Classic Flap, the 2.55 and of course, the Boy.

First up, the Classic Flap and the 2.55, which have similar price points where their sizes are concerned. Now priced at EUR4100, EUR4260, EUR4750 and EUR5160 for sizes Small, Medium (the 11.12), Jumbo and Maxi for the Classic Flap; the prices correspond with the 2.55 in its 4 sizes as well.

Now for the Boy. In its basic ‘entry-level’ calfskin renditions, they are now priced atEUR3420, EUR3720 and EUR4150 respectively for sizes Small, Medium and Large. Which also makes the largest Boy just a tad more than the Classic Flap or 2.55 inSmall, something to note for those still on the fence regarding which of the 3 to choose.

And just for those who need to see the prices side by side, in Singapore, for both theClassic Flap and the 2.55, they are SGD6410, SGD6660, SGD7430 and SGD8070respectively for the 4 sizes. Taking into consideration XE’s conversion rate today,EUR5160 converts to around SGD7780, which means the difference is less thanSGD300 for the Classic Flap and 2.55 in the largest size.

In other words, you’ll only really save if you go for the big-ticket items, but as you go down the list, the difference will really become smaller and smaller so it really makes more sense to buy in Singapore and build a beneficial relationship with your preferred SA.

Hermes VS Chanel

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel or Hermes, I simply love bags. I simply can’t choose between them, if I could, I would get both of them. But for a bag addicted like me, I am very picky about hand bags.

Chanel’s bag were never that expensive as they are today. How much again? $4,500 PLUS for a classic flap bag? Two years ago they were half in price, if I knew this would happen, I had bought several more.

It is like Chanel is trying to upgrade their brand image and compete on the higher level with exclusive brands like Hermes and others. What is Hermes bag cost? Around $10,000?

Here is a tricky question; Image Chanel flap bag cost $10,000 and the Hermes Birking bag is also priced $10,000. Which bag would you prefer? Chanel or Hermes?

You do not get these prices just like that, their quality should be questioned. When I went to the Chanel (the secret of Chanel 2.55) (the secret of Chanel 2.55) exhibition, they show how their bags are made. And apparently, most of the production time is being handmade or set-up together manually by an experienced handcraft. Chanel has also specialized machine that nowhere can be bought, because THEY MADE hard time copying them.

Hermes bag should not be any difference. I never went to their exhibition, but I am not surprised the process is about the same, which is hand-made.

On my handbag forum, several Chanel customers have been complaining about the quality of Chanel. One of them are the quality of the leather, some say that they look cheap, dull and non shiny. Others were complaining about the twist-lock back plate, that they are not equal.

When spending that much of money, the quality is important.

Mostly, we buy hand bags because of the feeling. Convince me, how would you feel differently when wearing Chanel comparing with your other $50,- hand bags? If you do not feel anything, then you probably are not a handbag lover.

How does Chanel hand bags make you feel and how Hermes hand bags made you feel are both very important factors. Hermes have been around for a longer time with higher prices and Chanel have just been rising.

The Secrets Of Chanel 2.55 Handbag

Categories:Other Brands

chanel-classic-bag-production-1

Attended at the exhibition in New York on the 57th Chanel Jewelry St, the Chanel 2.55 has a quite interesting story. Seats at the exhibition were limited and it was held between the 8th and 16th of May. The common question on everyone’s lips was: “What are the secrets of the Chanel 2.55 handbag?”.

The exhibition featured basically everything about the bag. From modern day production and design, to the bag’s background story. The exhibition featured a 70 inch flat screen television that was put on top to display how exactly the Chanel 2.55 was made. The steps are as follows:

Step One: Cutting
Step Two: Quilting
Step Three: Assembly
Step Four: Shaping
Step Five: Turning Out
Step Six: Chain
Step Seven: Packing

After viewing the birth process of the Chanel 2.55, it makes you anxious to purchase it. The exhibition centered a lot of hype and inspiration on the bag (and for good reason, too).

First, the cutting is carried out by special machines that were personally designed just for Chanel. This is just a piece of the pie, as to why the Chanel 2.55 is an awesome bag to have. More than 80% of the bag’s production time is composed of prep function. Prepping the bag actually involves around 180 stages.

Then a master craftsman puts all the components of the bag together. This can take up to ten hours, only on one bag. The bag is then sewn together inside out. Then it takes another craftsman to turn the bag back out. This takes a lot of skill, and is the main secret behind the Chanel 2.55.

The bag is then screwed together, with the hardware and grommets. Right before the finished product is being polished and prepping for tissue paper wrap, the handbag is finished off with the chain. With all these specifications, imagine how Coco Chanel herself must’ve designed and assembled the original Chanel 2.55 handbag.
The name 2.55 refers to the date that Coco Chanel had released the bag, February 1955. As the years comes by, the popularity of the Chanel 2.55 was vague and was re-introduced by Karl Lagerfeld on February 2005. That’s it got the name: Chanel 2.55 reissued.

What Is The Difference Between Chanel Classic Flap Bag And Chanel Classic 2.55 Reissue?

Categories:Other Brands

Another question I receive quite often is: ‘What are the differences between the classic flap bag and the reissue 2.55?’. There’s indeed a huge distinction between these two bags and it’s not only the size, but more importantly the style.

Chanel just brought back their mini classic flap bag. It was discontinued some time ago, but the new mini flap has a different look. It’s almost similar like the medium classic flap, but then one size smaller. (It was used to be more squared, as far as I know).

Chanel Classic Flap Bags
The Chanel classic flap bags have four sizes sizes: small, medium/large, jumbo and maxi. I am not sure why they named the medium also large, but this bag is actually not as large as you might think. The jumbo is still an okay size, but the maxi is huge.

The Chanel reissue 2.55 handbag is the exact copy of the original 2.55 bag that Coco Chanel has released in 1955. And thanks to Karl Lagerfeld for making that possible, he released the reissue version in February 2005. The Chanel 2.55 has such a long history that you have to love it. It’s vintage and cope perfectly with the modern casual styles.

The Chanel classic flap bag is the modern version of the Chanel 2.55 reissue. I don’t think the classic flap bag could have ever exist if it wasn’t the Chanel 2.55 flap bag. A lot of changes have been made in the inside than the outside. Especially the CC locker is so attractive.

The Chanel 2.55 reissue has a rectangular shape lock. It reference Coco Chanel for never marrying and that’s why it’s called the mademoiselle lock.

Throughout the years, the Chanel 2.55 flap bag has been modified. There were different series of the flap bag introduced, which was very confusing until Karl Lagerfeld came along and made a decisive changes that shaped the Chanel classics you recognize today. Since then, only two classic flap bags are being sold:

1. The Chanel reissue 2.55
2. The Chanel classic flap bag

Most members on Bragmybag prefer the Chanel classic flap bag than the reissue 2.55. That doesn’t mean that the Chanel 2.55 reissue is not attractive, but people prefer the modern version. I have no problem of having the 2.55 reissue too.

Let me know which one you love at the comment section and now you are here, why don’t you like our Facebook page to receive the latest information about Chanel.
