Luxury fashion – the latest Chanel price increases

Chanel Fall-Winter 2020-2021 Paris

Any luxury addict will know that designer brands have several price increases during the year. However the latest price increases to hit the market have sent shock waves around the luxury fashion community. 

What brands are affected?

Chanel has caused the biggest stir with their latest price increase and Louis Vuitton have since followed suit. Chanel are one of the more expensive luxury brands out there and it can be really disappointing when they put their prices up, especially if you have been saving for a while to get your hands on one of their iconic pieces.

It seems that is mainly the Chanel handbags and SLGs that have been affected by the recent prices increases and they actually decided to remove all handbag pricing on their website. The handbags are now showing as ‘prices available upon request’, meaning that you will now have to ask a sales assistant for advice and have no idea how much each piece is beforehand. Shoppers often like to know what they can expect to pay for items in advance, especially when they come with such a large price tag and we all know that the customer service for this brand is certainly not the most helpful or friendliest so this is going to put a lot of people off. 

Now that these two brands have actioned their recent aggressive price increases, we can expect many other brands to follow and do the same unfortunately. So if you have your eye on something from another luxury brand, now would certainty be the time to buy to avoid being stung with a price increase down the line!

What styles are affected?

Louis Vuitton have increased the pricing across their full handbag line. Unfortunately many styles have been out of stock for weeks and even months so if you have been waiting for a long time to buy a particular style, you are now going to face a higher price than before while you remain waiting.

For Chanel, not all handbags seem to have been increased, however it’s mainly the iconic classic styles that have been hit with the new prices such as the 11.12 and 2.55, as well as Boy, Gabrielle, Chanel 19 bags – plus certain small leather goods. The Boy bags took less of a hit but this will be because they are not as in demand as they once were.

What do the price increases look like?

According to Purse Blog, the below are examples of the main price increases within Europe.

Prices will vary depending on what part of the world you buy from, so the USA prices will be often very different to say Paris or London.

Why such large price increases?

We all know that businesses around the globe have been affected by the dreaded C word – the recent Covid 19 virus. Factories overseas closed halting production, stores have been closed for a couple of months, sales staff have been put on furlough, and Chanel is a brand that do not sell online. Why they decided not to do this is not clear exactly, but I feel it’s to reduce how accessible they are and to help minimise the distribution of the brand, making them appear to be more exclusive – such as Hermes, one of the most prestige brands out there. It could also be that Chanel have been a little backwards in their acceptance of modern technology and deciding to keep to the more traditional route of luxury selling.

Going back to the Covid 19 situation though – Chanel have issued a statement saying that this is not related to Covid 19 and purely part of their twice yearly increases as well as factoring fluctuating exchange rates. However this is the largest price increase that I have seen from the brand (some styles increasing by a whopping 25% !!) and it has been quite shocking, especially during such an uncertain time.

Chanel stressed that “any price increases are implemented only after careful consideration, and are necessary for the brand to continue investing to maintain its core standards of creativity and craft.”

Final thoughts..

I personally think the price increases were extremely high this time and they’ve come at the worst possible timing with everything going on in the world at the moment. The brands that have had such large pricing hikes are pushing customers further away and making it more difficult for a lot of people to be able to be able to buy from them. Perhaps this is part of their brand strategy which is a shame.

So, what do you think about these latest price increases?

Will it put you off buying from luxury brands?

How to dress like a Parisian

Parisian styling

Parisian style is so timeless and French women always look amazing. One of the best things to do in Paris, is to sit outside a cafe people watching and soaking up the whole atmosphere. It’s one of my most favourite places in the world visit. Typically whenever you think of French styling, it will be  classic, minimal and just effortlessly cool. 

Karl Largerfeld once said “You don’t have to be French to be a Parisian” and this was a pretty generous statement from him as in my opinion the French have that certain ‘Je ne sais quoi‘ that the rest of us can only dream of, but I do have a couple of tips to help you master a Parisian inspired look.

Keep it simple

Simplicity is key. Parisian women never over accessorise. Instead, they tend to add one or two accessories per outfit only, such as a silk scarf, or a fabulous hat and jewellery is often kept minimal and chic. Think a classic string of pearls or a pair of chunky gold hoop earrings.  Coco Chanel said herself “before leaving the house, a lady should look in the mirror and remove one accessory.” and this is a key tip to French styling.

Try Missoma for a great selection of simple gold jewellery that would work well for a Parisian inspired look.

Be discrete with labels and logos 

Parisians tend to keep away from clothing that is covered in logos or large branding as it’s seen as slightly tacky. They will choose their clothing from brands that focus on high quality materials, that are well tailored and fit the body well. They will spend more money on these quality pieces also with the knowledge that they will last and stand the test of time as well as being able to style them in various ways. If you think about it, this is actually a really sustainable attitude to dressing.

Stick to a uniform 

The Parisian woman is not interested in trends or fashion fads. Instead she will focus on classic, chic clothing that she knows suits her and feels comfortable to wear. They will tend to stick to a more basic colour pallet such as black, white, camel and grey which can be worn easily every season. You won’t find any neon yellow in their wardrobe even if it is the latest colour to be seen in, and you won’t see them investing in the latest jean silhouette that will look dated the following year. Instead, they will stick to a classic style formula that works and oozes style consistently.

Mix dressy with casual

Parisians are the masters of mixing casual clothing with an item that is a little bit more dressy. Like a classic shirt and cigarette trousers paired with a more glamorous evening bag, a pencil skirt with ballet flats, a leather jacket with masculine trousers and a sequin sweater, or even an evening tuxedo with sneakers. They love combining a casual element with a special piece – in a paired back way – not too fussy, or overthought. 

Items you will never find in a Parisian’s wardrobe

  • Huge logos or designer labels on show
  • Cheap materials – so no Nylon, Polyester, or Viscose in sight
  • Joggers or sweatpants
  • Anything too blingy or covered with rips
  • Skimpy tops with too much flesh on show
  • Fake designer bags or clothing

Lavender: The colour to be seen in this Spring

Out of all the pastel shades, lavender is one of my favourites. Its a gorgeous cool tone that looks clean and fresh but it’s also a great way to make a bold statement with any outfit. Spring is on it’s way and it’s the perfect transition from cosy winter coats and chunky knitwear moving into lighter materials, soft pretty colours and a fresh new take on our wardrobes. I don’t know about you, but I get so excited when I see the sale items getting smaller in the stores and the ‘new in’ sections starting to take over again with new pieces to get excited about. 

Now the sale rails are finally on their way out I have been looking through the latest pieces and lavender tones have been popping up in a lot of places. It’s such a gorgeous colour that suits every skin tone and I’m really looking forward to this colour pallet for Spring! 

How to style Lavender pieces

Luckily this is an easy colour to incorporate into an outfit as it works well with other colours. I love to mix this shade with denim as the colours compliment each other beautifully. You can also mix lavender pieces with a crisp white shirt and a pair of black, leather trousers for a stylish ‘office appropriate’ outfit. Or why not go head to toe in a lavender shade suit – which is also ticking off another 2 trends in one go – colour blocking and tailoring.

Adding neutral shades with lavender is the easiest way to style this. Basic whites, creams, black or grey will let the lavender item do all the talking for your look – everyone has neutral basics that they can add into an outfit so you can take on this trend without having to buy a load of new items to try and style with it.

If wearing colour isn’t really your thing, you can incorporate it easily with accessories. Look for handbags, shoes, scarves or hats to add a pop of Lavender in a more classic, understated way.

Another thing that I really like is that it doesn’t matter if you prefer to wear gold or silver jewellery as both work really well with lavenders, lilacs and purple colours. So let’s have a look at the top pieces that I recommend to get onboard with this trend for Spring. 

Lavender pieces that you need to pick up now

As always with trends it’s good to be ahead of the game. The stores are just launching all of the new Spring 20 collections and there are a couple of places that have some amazing pieces in this colour pallet that you will want to get your hands on. And other Stories is fast becoming one of my new favourite shopping destinations and they have the best lilac pieces right now, as well as Zara who have also picked up on this being a hit colour of the season.

If you enjoyed this blog post, check out my latest report on the logomania trend HERE 

Trend Report: Logomania

Logos and branding are back and in a big way! Shown all over the runways the last few seasons, we are seeing a huge trend in the collections for styles with large logos, monogrammed details and boldly branded pieces.

Logomania is not a new trend; it’s something that comes back into fashion time and time again. It was particularly a hit in the 80s and 90s and designers such Chanel were leading the way back then just as much as they are killing it today.  We are seeing designers at Burberry and Fendi  are evolving this by bringing out newly designed logos, updating their monogramme details, moving into the new age of fashion and having a fresh take on this trend.

I personally am loving the Logomania trend and I’ve always been drawn to it in previous years. Some of the vintage 90s Chanel pieces that were heavily branded with their famous interlocking CCs were truly amazing so if you are able to get hold of any vintage pieces from those decades you will have found some absolute gems that will stand the test of time for many years to come. They are such investment pieces. I had the original Christian Dior saddle bag when they first launched this style in the early 2000s and let me tell you, it was not at the £2k price point that it is today! Unfortunately I wore that bag to it’s absolute death but if I still had it, it would be a fabulous vintage piece that would work well with any outfit today.

See below for my top 6 fashion brands to go to for embracing the logomania trend.

That’s the beauty of this trend – you can either invest in ready to wear pieces (which are usually quite expensive and hard to get hold of without a decent SA) or you can be involved in the trend with the use of accessories such as bags, scarves, small leathers, shoes or hats which are often a much more affordable option.

Some people are not a fan of logos as they prefer to buy an item of clothing for the quality alone, without the need to broadcast who designed it. But for me, the more logos the better at the moment! Traditionally in fashion though, the trend of flashing large logos everywhere usually then moves into a more basic, simplistic look instead which is often a refreshing change after being saturated with designer names all over the place.

Share in the comments below if you like this trend and what your favourite designer logo is. What was your favourite piece from my selection too? I would love to know!

The most luxurious sports accessories of the moment

These luxurious sports accessories are a sure way for every fashionista to be able to exercise in style! From basketball to skiing, tennis to skateboarding, the leading fashion designers have got all sporting activities covered. It’s the start of a brand new year (as well as a new decade) and usually top of everyone’s New Years Resolution list is to up their fitness game, so what better way than to get started with some of these fabulous items:

1) Louis Vuitton volley ball

The Louis Vuitton Monogram volley ball, Priced at £1680, is a combination of leather and canvas in a patchwork effect, creating a playful spin on the characteristic Louis Vuitton Monogram. This comes with a bag in similar colours, which also features Monogram details.

2) Chanel Basket Ball

The Chanel basketball with Chanel inscription in the classic black and gold, even comes with it’s own carrying chain. Around £2,000

3) Burberry Yoga Mat

The monogram Burberry yoga Mat, priced at £320

4) Supreme Skateboards

Supreme skateboards, spring-summer 2019 collection

5) Chanel surfboard

There have been several versions of the Chanel surfboards produced over the last few years, priced at around £7000 and only available upon request.

6) Chanel Tennis racket

Who can remember that episode of ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ with Kris Jenner and her Chanel tennis equipment? This racket and matching ball set will definitely turn heads on the court!

7) Chanel Ski wear

It’s clear to see that Chanel are leaders in this trend and they have been adding their logo to a variety of sports equipment. Recently, we’ve seen Kylie Jenner all over Instagram dressed head to toe in her Chanel and Fendi ski-wear, covered in the monogrammed logos.

If sports equipment is not your thing, you can still get involved with this trend with designer swimwear or winter accessories for skiing such as these Chanel earmuffs which are absolutely stunning.

I personally think this is such a fun way to link fashion and sports together in this way. Although I’m not too sure I would want to actually use the items considering how much they cost, and I would probably keep them as display items/collectors pieces instead as they are guaranteed to increase in value and become investments in the future. Either way, it’s making me want to get exercising and start my new year fitness regime!
