CHANEL DISCONTINUED BAGS

Categories:Other Brands

This post can go in two ways; either it’s going to be the saddest story or the best story ever. Now why sad, you ask? Well, all of these bags are gorgeous and considered one of the best ‘Classics’, they were affordable but discontinued.

Now why the best story ever; well, if you are one of those Chanel-Obsessed or Newbie-Collector, you might want to use this as a cheat sheet. You see, these bags will always be remembered, so they are the perfect collector items to hunt for. Although you can’t find them anymore at the Chanel boutiques, but you might be able to catch one in the consignment stores.

The purpose of this post is to tell you the story of these classic bags. Each one of them has their own fairytale. So, one two three, are you ready?

Chanel East West Flap Bag

The Chanel East West Flap Bag was the twin sister of the Chanel Classic Flap Bag. They were both inseparable, until one day, Chanel decided to set them apart.

Chanel fanatics that couldn’t afford the Chanel Classic Flap Bag turned over to the Chanel East West Flap Bag because it was much cheaper. But less expensive doesn’t mean that the quality is bad, in fact the material was great as well as the craftsmanship.

Of course, the Chanel Classic Flap Bag was much more popular, but the Chanel East West Flap Bag didn’t care. She was already grateful for all the love she received.

The Chanel East West Flap Bag was discontinued in 2010, the latest price recorded was $2300 USD.

Chanel Kelly Bag

Yes its true, Chanel has a bag called the ‘Kelly Bag’. Now I know what you’re thinking, the Hermes Kelly Bag right? This is also what fashion-ladies were gossiping about at that time. However this bag was quite famous and everyone loved it.

In 2007, Chanel slowly discontinued the larger size first and the years after, this bag was no longer available.

The Chanel Kelly Bag was discontinued in 2010, the latest recorded price was $1450 USD for the small size and $1595 USD for the large size.

Chanel Cambon Tote Bag

The Chanel Cambon Tote Bag was one of the four top-stars. The other three were the Chanel Mediallion Tote Bag, the Chanel Petite Shopping Tote Bag and the Chanel Grand Shopping Tote Bag.

Not everyone was fond of the Cambon Tote Bag because there were other choices. But the price was reasonable and the quality was all right. The design is timeless with a beautiful large CC logo on the side and we adore the quilting.

The exact reason for discontinuing the Cambon Bag was not shared but some people say that there were too many knock-offs, which is actually true. When the Chanel Cambon Tote Bag existed, replicators were copying like there was no tomorrow.

The Chanel Cambon Tote Bag was discontinued around 2012. The latest price recorded was $3260 SGD for the large size.

Chanel Mediallion Tote Bag

All the ladies said: ‘When Chanel Mediallion Tote Bag was discontinued, my heart sank.’ So sad, because this bag was one of the most popular choices back then. You can compare its fame like the iconic Boy Chanel Quilted Flap Bag today – you know it exists but every boutique keeps telling you its OUT-OF-STOCK.

The Chanel Mediallion Tote Bag is cute and features a large CC print on the front. A Mediallion with Chanel signature was attached on the zipper. However, the bag was not made to carry heavy essentials and it was not made to carry much. But it was the perfect everyday bag and one to be proud of. The Chanel Mediallion Tote Bag was also one of the few Chanel bags that were made 100% from leather, the inside as well as outside.

The Chanel Mediallion Tote Bag was discontinued around 2012, the latest price recorded was $2400 USD.

Chanel Petite Timeless Tote Bag (PTT)

Life became much bitter, because many people felt like Chanel was taking everything we love away from us, one by one, very much like torturing. Here’s a comment from a Chanel lover: ‘I walked into the Chanel store at Dubai and asked for the PTT. The SA said, the PTT has been discontinued. I got the shock of my life’.

The Chanel Petite Shopping Tote Bag style code was discontinued in December 2012, the latest recorded price was $2750 USD, €1660 euro.

Chanel Petite Shopping Tote Bag (PST)

After the PTT recession, came the PST depression. Because many classic tote bags were already discontinued, a huge crowd jumped over to the Chanel Petite Shopping Bag. But then the news hit: ‘The PST is discontinued’, heartbreaks followed and the classic tote options were shrinking.

The latest information we got was that the PST is removed from the Classic Collection and there might be a chance that they will bring the PST back in the future as a seasonal bag.

The news about discontinuing the PST came in the late 2012/beginning 2013. But some stores were still stocking them until around 2014/2015 (or not stocking them, just available because they have some left in the back). As per today, this bag is really discontinued, so no more false hopes.

The Chanel Petite Shopping Tote Bag was discontinued in the late 2013/beginning 2013, the latest price recorded was $2200 USD, €1500 euro.

Chanel Grand Shopping Tote Bag (GST)

The Chanel Grand Shopping Tote Bag was the final blow. The SA’s were sharing their customers about this devastating news in 2015 – ‘the GST is about to be discontinued’.

Chanel fans were keeping each other up-to-date at Bragmybag. All the shoppers around the world were panicking and trying to find the last few pieces left.

The Chanel Grand Shopping Tote Bag was discontinued in 2015, the latest recoded price was $2900 USD.

Oh yes, just like the PST, some people say that the GST will return, but not as a Seasonal Bag.
