Rumour has it that Chanel increased the price of some of its best-selling classics to ensure there isn't a vast disparity in prices for the same bags across different countries. It is a part of Chanel's global price harmonization strategy – in which Chanel price matches its merchandise across the globe. 

 

With the recent two-decade low crash of the Euro price rendering it almost equal to the US Dollar, many tourists (especially Americans) took to Europe for their summer vacations this year. 

 

They flocked to Paris to shop at Hermes, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel, among many other luxury brands, at prices much cheaper than those in the US. As a result, these overseas shoppers enjoyed considerable savings between the price disparity and receiving the VAT refund.

How is the resale market affected?

Chanel Price Increase Europe

Over the years, as Chanel's prices increased, the prices of Chanel bags in the resale market also followed suit to reflect the sudden increase in demand for Chanel bags. And it is safe to say that the demand for Chanel bags is higher than ever – especially since the quota system's implementation in June 2022 (read all about it here). 

 

The ever-increasing prices and scarcity of Chanel bags at the retail level led to a steep decline in access to these covetable bags; as a result, many have turned to the resale market to access the bags that aren't available to them in the boutiques.

 

What are your thoughts on the Chanel price increase in Europe? This would be Chanel's second price hike in Europe in six months (the last increase was March 1st, 2022); what do you think these higher prices mean globally for Chanel fans?
