PurseForum Roundup 21

Other Brands

Happy, happy Friday, fashion lovers! It’s time to see what has been happening this week over at the PurseForum, and we are happy you have joined us. We rounded up a few reveals and also paid visits to Louis Vuitton, Hermès, The Wardrobe and more.

The bag-in-car thread is a popular one, and we understand why (sort of). It is undeniably a very photo-friendly spot—not sure why it is not the same for humans, but we’ll go with it! This is 23adeline’s Very Tote and Obsession shades out for a drive, what do you think? Looks like a fabulous combination to us.

Another lovely bag catching a ride: Brendutch’s classic Neverfull. Also in Louis Vuitton, shillinggirl88 has been considering her first purchase from the brand and came to our expert members for help. Visit her thread to see how it all turned out! Karacoco is also seeking advice, this time on her new Tuilleries Hobo, all the way from Paris. Will this bag suit her lifestyle? Chime in here with a helpful word if you can.

We really enjoy the style and lookbook threads in The Wardrobe. Several stylish members regularly share their tips for putting together accessible ensembles that inspire us to try new pieces, re-work ones we already own and be a bit more creative. Bakeacookie has been updating her stylebook, and if you have not visited this terrific thread, you are in for a treat.

Also in the Wardrobe, Lara_11 started a conversation about too many darn clothes. We know that this is an easy situation to get into, whether it is because of over shopping or under-editing. Stop in to lend support of share your strategies for getting out from under things you do not really need.

Lisawhit shared a wonderful Hermès success story, one that finishes off with a reveal of this fabulous Plume, one of four favorites. We often remind our readers that there is a thriving secondary market for luxury brands, and that with time and care a pre-loved bag can be a smart choice. Most of our subforums include vast style reference libraries, threads with volunteer authenticators offering advice, shopping tips and more. If you have not discovered PurseForum’s amazing resources in buying pre-owned, this is the perfect time to start.

A couple of “holy grail” items popped up in Hermès this week, like this classic Kelly from PursePassionLV. (We will let you visit the reveal thread to see the rest.) Also, Allure244 finally found a Birkin in a stunning blue that she has been lusting after for quite some time.

Orange box towers are pretty impressive, and this reveal from Aelfaerie includes some cute small items and gorgeous scarves.

In Longchamp, we found Sasha1009’s new tote in the Show us Your Longchamp thread. You can see this awesome bag and a whole heap more in the thread. You can never have enough totes, and Longchamp certainly has you covered.

Phiomega updated her Longhcamp Cuir with a new strap. A colorful strap is a great way to update a bag or two, and this tote looks fresh and fun! You can get ahead of the curve with our Longchamp Spring 2018 thread, or stay in the know about current, straps, backpacks and more in our Autumn 2017 thread, which just added the Le Pliage L’etoile—it went straight on our wishlist!

Now for a few quick reveals from here and there…

Izzy48 shared this patriotic and splendid Mulberry Bayswater Tote this week—isn’t it great?

We also love, love, love this Mulberry Emmy on the way to work with Betty Kay!

Happy Birthday Miss_Dawn! Your new Saint Laurent is a perfect way to celebrate another trip around the sun/

Gardenbelle shared a terrific reveal in Chloé, isnt this a super set of goodies! This small Nile in teal with matching wallet makes for a delightful pair, and you can see plenty of closeups in her thread right here.

The famous flower of Chanel is also known as the beautiful Camellia or the Chinese rose. This flower is a symbol of everlasting love and faithfulness. Chanel has been showcasing the Camellia on the runway and in their collection for years. The Camellia will always be part of Chanel because it was a gift for Gabrielle Chanel by Boy Capel, the love of her life. In the Pre-Fall 2017 Collection, the Camellia flower has once again returned and embellished in one of the newest handbag. In fact, it’s a beautiful flap bag to brag about – designed in multiple layers like a blooming flower. Here’s the story.

So chic, so feminine, will this be the next iconic handbag? Whether it will reach that status doesn’t matter right now, because carrying this gorgeous piece will make any woman instantly proud. It’s one of the flap bag available for this season, designed with a vintage-looking interlocking CC logo with woven chain strap and bi-color boyish chain. The Camellia flower has been gently attached to the chain, which will be a part of your outfit when you sling it on your shoulder. The diamond quilting adds the final touch of chic’ness while the multicolor attracts people’s attention. The bag is designed in bi- and multi-color. The interior features a detachable pouch and a part of that design is exposed just below the exterior’s flap – creating an interesting mix of shades. This bag is available as a waist bag as well as a shoulder bag. You can pick either lambskin or metallic lambskin or even in Velvet.

The bag opens like any Chanel Flap Bag. The interior features a main compartment for all your essentials and a front pocket. In the front pocket sits a stunning interior pouch that can be removed if you want.

Breaking news: Chanel prices in China has increased. And didn’t they just increased the prices in Europe last month as well? Now the next question is: which country is next?

So what really happened in China? Let’s start with the Classic Flap Bags.

Chanel Classic Flap Bag Prices Went Up And Down

Chanel Mini Squared Classic Bag ¥16800 CNY ¥16800 CNY
Chanel Small Classic Bag ¥30900 CNY ¥31700 CNY
Chanel M/L Classic Bag ¥34700 CNY ¥33000 CNY
Chanel Jumbo Classic Bag ¥38600 CNY ¥36800 CNY
Chanel Maxi Classic Bag ¥41900 CNY ¥39900 CNY
Chanel Mini Squared Classic Bag ¥0 CNY 0%
Chanel Small Classic Bag -¥800 CNY -2.52%
Chanel M/L Classic Bag ¥1700 CNY 5.15%
Chanel Jumbo Classic Bag ¥1800 CNY 4.89%
Chanel Maxi Classic Bag ¥2000 CNY 5.01%

Three things changed in the Classic Flap Bag Collection. The price tag of the Mini Squared Bag remained the same, as well as the Extra Mini And the New Mini. The Small Classic Flap Bag decreased in price by 2,5%, which also happened to Europe. The other sizes like the Medium Large, Jumbo and Maxi went up by 5%.

Last month, the Euro prices of the Classic Flap Bag including the mini’s went up by 5% as well. The Small Classic Flap Bag was reduced by 2,6% – almost the same percentage as in China.

Chanel Reissue 2.55 Followed Suit

Chanel 224 Reissue 2.55 Bag ¥30900 CNY ¥31700 CNY
Chanel 225 Reissue 2.55 Bag ¥34700 CNY ¥33000 CNY
Chanel 226 Reissue 2.55 Bag ¥38600 CNY ¥36800 CNY
Chanel 227 Reissue 2.55 Bag ¥41900 CNY ¥39900 CNY

The prices of the Chanel Classic Bag and the Reissue 2.55 Bag are connected like twins. If one goes up, the other will follow. The prices of the Reissue 2.55 Bag increased by the same rate as the Classic Flap Bag.

Chanel Boy Bag Prices Were Untouched

There is also good news. The Boy Chanel Bags in China have remained the same – so no price increase and no price decrease. Comparing to what happened to Europe last month, the Boy Bags in euro’s went up by 7%, which was 2% higher than the Classic Flap Bag. We’re not sure why Chanel didn’t hike the prices of the Boy Bags, because they’re iconic handbags as well.

One Chanel WOC Increased In Price

Chanel Classic Quilted WOC ¥14500 CNY ¥13500 CNY
Boy Chanel Quilted WOC ¥14300 CNY ¥14300 CNY
Chanel Trendy CC WOC ¥17500 CNY ¥17500 CNY

It seems like that Chanel is only targeting bags that resemble the Classic Flap Bags. Handbags with diamond quilting, iconic CC logo and woven chain strap are all participating to the new price increase policy. The Chanel Classic Quilted WOC went up by 7% while the other WOC styles like the Trendy CC WOC, Camellia WOC and the Boy WOC remained the same.

Chanel Wallet Prices Are Up As Well

Chanel L Flap Wallet ¥7200 CNY ¥6900 CNY
Chanel L Flap Wallet (foldable) ¥6800 CNY ¥6500 CNY
Chanel Small Flap Wallet ¥5500 CNY ¥5100 CNY
Chanel L-Yen Wallet ¥6000 CNY ¥5600 CNY
Chanel Zip Around Wallet ¥7300 CNY ¥7000 CNY
Chanel L Flap Wallet ¥300 CNY 4.35%
Chanel L Flap Wallet (foldable) ¥300 CNY 4.62%
Chanel Small Flap Wallet ¥400 CNY 7.84%
Chanel L-Yen Wallet ¥400 CNY 7.14%
Chanel Zip Around Wallet ¥300 CNY 4.29%

The classic wallets have met the same faith as the Classic Flap Bags. The Chanel L Flap Wallets increased by 4.5% while the Small Flap Wallet and the L-Yen Wallet went up by more than 7%.

Seasonal Bags Remained The Same

Just like in Europe, this new price policy is not applied to the seasonal handbags, which is great news of course. The seasonal bags include our favorite Coco Handle Bag and the Trendy CC Bag.

The Future Perspective And What’s Next?

In May Chanel increased the prices in Europe and in June the prices of China. The question we have now is which country is next? Well, only Chanel knows this answer. However, what we can do is create an expectation by analysing the past events. So we can conclude that:

  • The Classic Flap Bags are certainly going to increase in prices.
  • The Classic Bags will increase between 5 to 7%.
  • The Small Classic Flap Bag decreased in price in both Europe and China.
  • The Classic WOC prices will hike as well
  • The Classic Wallet prices will certainly go up between 4% to 7%
  • There is a chance that the Boy Bags will increase too
  • Seasonal items will not be targetted

So what are your thoughts? Do you think Chanel will increase the prices in your country?

The Boy Bag has been released in 2012 in order to cater to young professionals’s more upbeat styles. Five years later with much success to back up its career in the bag industry, it has been considered a main stay in the Chanel line. Without further much talk, here’s the Boy Chanel PVC Thread Bag.

Made from PVC thread, lambskin, and metal hardware, this Boy Chanel PVC Thread Bag’s personality says a lot about what it has in store. Let’s take a closer look to further appreciate its modern flair and panache. You will definitely notice that the bag mainly features a multicolor pvc thread on its flap while the edges of it is in smooth lambskin leather. While the quitling has been replaced, this new design is really sophisticated and one-of-a-kind. The Boy Chanel clasp is however placed in the lower middle portion for instant bag recognition. One thing that will also catch your attention would be its unique thick thread shoulder strap, which makes it fancier to carry it in style.

The Black Boy Chanel PVC Thread Bag on the other hand features a black on black Boy clasp to finish off its look.

Montegrappa Pirates watch is just ideal for Captain Jack Sparrow

Other Brands

Italian luxury brand Montegrappa is known for making writing instruments and wristwatches with polarizing and unique designs. After creating the outlandish Chaos and My Guardian Angel watches, Montegrappa has now introduced another flamboyant watch with an over-decorated case. Meet the Montegrappa Pirates watch, a timepiece designed to accompany the limited-edition pen with the same name in brand’s popular Cult Collection. The case is embellished with precious metal overlays that reproduce the motifs of buccaneer culture, quite similar to the ones found on the Pirates pen. Although the watch’s launch coincides with the release of the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales film, it might or might not be coincidental.

The Montegrappa Pirates watch comes with a 43mm case made in die-cast sterling silver and is available in two versions. The first one is in all silver and the other version is silver with vermeil yellow gold highlights. The watch is powered by ETA 2824 automatic movement and is fitted with genuine stingray leather strap which matches the overall theme. The Montegrappa Pirates watches will be produced in limited editions of 88 pieces each. The all silver version is priced at $4200 and the one with gold accents is available for $4500.
