Gucci kicked off Milan Fashion Week with an eerie show which took place in an operating room setting. Complete with LED lights and plastic chairs like one would see in a waiting room, Alessandro Micheleembraced a surreal approach for the fall-winter 2018 season. The Italian designer kept with his maximalist aesthetic, sending models down the runway with unusual accessories. From models carrying their own heads, miniature dragons or snakes, the Gucci woman definitely walks to the beat of her own drum. Michele took inspiration from across the globe with nods to the Middle East, Japan, Medieval Europe and the United State. Through it all, draped gowns and embellished jackets made for winning pieces.

PRADA VIT.DAINO SHOULDER BAG

Other Brands

Prada-Vit.Daino-Shoulder-Bag

After the introduction of the Monochrome Bag, we finally saw the brand-new Prada logo. It was modernized, stylish and so Prada-like, we loved it. Now this logo is being implemented into new handbags like this Prada Vit.Daino Shoulder Bag. So, is this going to be your next everyday bag?

The Design

Simplicity at its best, the Vit.Diano Bag is a medium-sized handbag with an oversized interior. It’s strong and durable, crafted from calf leather, so you don’t need to constantly baby it. And especially if you pick a darker shade like the classic black.

The new Prada logo has been printed on the front in large size. It feels like the logo and the bag is one. There is also another logo printed in gold on the bag’s side. This bag is just the perfect bag for daily use; for work or casual days.

What is more? There is a pocket on the rear, as well as a boho-chic multi-color leather strap for hand-carry or shoulder carry. So what do you think? Practical?

The Interior

Let’s take a look inside the bag. In the interior you will find two pockets including one with zipper. But overall, the bag is quite spacious and can find a lot of stuff besides your daily essentials. The bag is also strong enough to carry heavier items.

The Prices And Sizes

Measuring 12.5 x 19 x 28 (D x H x W) cm, priced at €1350 euro, €1350 EUR, £1270 GBP via Prada boutiques.

Where To Shop Prada Vit.Daino Bag?

1. Farfetch – there are a lot of colors here, but you need to scroll down…

2. MyTheresa – you can also find the handbag here.

In her interview, Selena talks about what’s going on with her next album.

“My next album has been forever in the making. When people ask me why, I’m honest about it: It’s because I haven’t been ready. I mean, point­blank, I don’t feel confident enough in where my music is yet. If that takes 10 years, then it takes 10 years. I don’t care. Right now I just want to be super intentional with all of the things I’m doing.”

CHANEL PRICE INCREASE REPORT FEB 2018

Other Brands

Chanel-price-increase-feb-2018-5

Here is the Chanel Price Increase Report of February 2018. And of course, the prices of Chanel handbags went up in certain countries, but none of the prices went down.

In this report we will also warn you about one handbag that might hike in price in the future, but for now you can still take advantage of the low price tag. This one handbag is the Small Classic Flap Bag, more details will follow below.

We will also compare the prices between certain countries, so you can easily spot where to buy the cheapest. We will also take the tax-refund calculation into account.

Now, let’s get this report going. Let’s start by checking which countries have increased in prices and which not.

Which countries increased in prices?

The day of the release of the Spring Summer 2018 Collection Act 1 should be a happy day. But for those that didn’t double-checked, it was also the day that the classic and the upcoming-classic handbag prices went up significantly in Japan. We’re talking about the Classic Flap Bags, The Classic WOC’s, Classic Wallets and even the Classic Boy Bags – all went up, up and up.

And for the US! We’ve received a price hike of the classic bags in November 2017. But Chanel decided to increase the prices of the Gabrielle Bag in the United States as well. Perhaps this handbag is becoming very popular there – so more demand means higher prices.

And now, let’s cover and analyze the prices of each handbag.

Chanel Classic Flap Bag

The Classic Flap Bags in Japan went up in prices by around 7%. And perhaps 7% doesn’t sound a lot, but if you consider the already-super-high-price-tags of these iconic handbags, then it’s quite a lot of money. Let’s just say; this 7% extra payment could be an extra wallet or a beautiful coin purse.

Chanel-price-increase-feb-2018-graph

Chanel-price-increase-feb-2018-graph-2

We’ve created two graphs to give you an idea of how aggressive the price increases have been in Japan. Both the iconic Classic Bags and Boy Bags went up significantly and frequently. The last price increase was just in November 2017, so you wouldn’t expect another one that quickly. But now the prices went up again in January 2018, in that short amount of time. So if you can get your dream bag, get it as soon as possible. For now, the prices Europe are still the same, but how about tomorrow?

The Small Classic Flap Bag

A few months ago, the bag prices in Europe went up except for the Small Classic Flap Bag. There were some rumors that Chanel was about to discontinue the Small Classic Flap Bag, which must be the reason for the price decrease, because they want to empty their stock. But that wasn’t true at all, because the Small Classic Flap Bag is still here.

Now for all the bag hunters and dreamers out there, the Small Classic Flap Bag might jumped ‘a lot’ in prices in the next price increase announcement. Why? Because Japan is the proof.

Before November 2017, the price of the Small Classic Flap Bag was ¥523800 JPY (equivalent to $4756 USD). Then on November 2017, out of nowhere, all the bags in Japan went up in prices except for the Small Classic Flap Bag. In fact, the Small Classic Flap Bag decreased in price (yes the word decrease is so scarce at Chanel!). The price went down to ¥514080 JPY (equivalent to $4667 USD). But at per today, the price has jumped again, together with the other classics and went up to ¥551880 JPY (equivalent to $5011 USD).

Now that Japan has made as an example, the next price increase will also affect the Small Classic Flap Bag. So get it before it happens.

Is It Cheaper To Buy In the United States Or Japan?

We know that some US citizen travels to Japan to purchase Chanel bags because they’re cheaper there. The fact that they can take advantage of the tax-refund policy reduces the prices, and thus it might be cheaper to buy in Japan. But let’s create an overview, shall we?

Chanel M/L Classic Flap Bag in US and Japan BEFORE THE PRICE INCREASE

What were the prices before the price increase in the US and Japan. Was it cheaper for an US citizen to buy in Japan?

Retail price USD Price Japan VAT Excluded
$5300 USD ¥574983 JPY > Convert to USD > $4857 USD

Chanel M/L Classic Flap Bag in US and Japan AFTER THE PRICE INCREASE

Now let’s see how the prices are as per today. Is it still profitable to buy in Japan?

Retail price USD Price Japan VAT Excluded
$5300 USD ¥574983 JPY > Convert to USD > $5220 USD


As you can see, the price gap between US and Japan has been reduced. Perhaps this is why Chanel decided to increase the prices in Japan – it’s to eliminate this gap.

Is It Cheaper To Buy In the Singapore Or Japan?

Singapore citizen also shop in Japan because it’s cheaper and they can get the tax-refund. But let’s see how it affects the shoppers after the price increase.

Chanel M/L Classic Flap Bag in US and Singapore BEFORE THE PRICE INCREASE

First, let’s see how the prices were before the price increase.

Retail price USD Price Singapore VAT Excluded
$5300 USD ¥534985 JPY > Convert to SGD > $6409 SGD


Chanel M/L Classic Flap Bag in Singapore and Japan AFTER THE PRICE INCREASE

Now let’s see how the prices are as per today. Is it still profitable to shop in Japan?

Retail price USD Price Singapore VAT Excluded
$5300 USD ¥574983 JPY > Convert to SGD > $6888 SGD

Conclusion

It’s still cheaper for Singapore Citizens to buy an iconic Chanel bag in Japan. But if you’re an US citizen, then the discount is much less. So what do you think?
