Chanel and Louis Vuitton Named Top Brands on Social Media


IMG_5734 (1)

In the bustling digital era, fashion brands are fighting to earn a spot on the top of the social media ladder. As consumers become more attached to their screens, brands are making it a bigger priority to establish themselves on platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (read: Top 10 Most Digitally Savvy Brands)
So, who is truly a leader in the social media world?

According to WWD, Insightpool, a marketing platform that gathers social data, observed the profiles of top fashion brands from January 2017 to April 2017 in an attempt to learn more about the online fashion landscape. Insightpool tracked the overall audience engagement of these brands through keywords, comments, and tags.

The study concluded that Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Christian Siriano are the top three social media leaders in the digital world at the moment. In terms of followers, here’s what the numbers show us:

  • Chanel – 20.1 million Instagram followers and 12.8 million Twitter followers
  • Louis Vuitton – 16.1 million Instagram followers and 6.11 million Twitter followers
  • Christian Siriano – 643,000 Instagram followers and 372,000 Twitter followers

While this hierarchy interesting, it’s not all about numbers. Gaining more followers can help companies raise brand awareness and inform consumers about new products or trends. Most consumers these days make big shopping decisions from the content they see on social media and general web searches. (Read: Handbag Shopping – Does More Browsing Increase Satisfaction)

Rumors were circulating that Chanel would increase prices last month (april 2017), but up until now the prices have remain the same. Which means, we’re off the hook for now. However, there is still a chance that Chanel will increase prices later this year.


It’s fun to shop at Chanel, we love the handbags, wallets and other accessories like earrings. But when it comes to prices, then the fun starts to drop. Because we know that the prices usually go up and never go down. And if you will definitely not be happy if you’ve heard the rumors that Chanel will increase prices next month April. But is this true?

Sometime ago, there was a lady who had purchased her bag on the day of price increase. It’s wasn’t so much fun when she got to know that her bag was a several dollars more expensive just because she was one day late. And this is also true when you want to exchange your bag from small to medium size. Let’s say you just bought a Chanel bag in small size and next day you want to exchange it to a medium size. If the price has increased, Chanel will charge you the ‘new price’ and not the ‘old price’. You need to compensate for the extra costs.

In the past, when Chanel announced a price increase, it usually means; ‘price increase in almost every country’. But everything changed since the ‘price harmonization’ in 2015. What the price harmonization did was increasing prices in some countries while decreasing in others, and to be exact – the prices in Europe went up while in some Asian countries went down. Chanel made this move to balance their losses due to huge currency differences and they continue to do so.

The Price Harmonization Era

In the past, when Chanel announced a price increase, it usually means; ‘price increase in almost every country’. But everything changed since the ‘price harmonization’ in 2015. What the price harmonization did was increasing prices in some countries while decreasing in others, and to be exact – the prices in Europe went up while in some Asian countries went down. Chanel made this move to balance their losses due to huge currency differences and they continue to do so.

Like last year after Brexit. The pound got slashed and the United Kingdom experienced several steep rises in Chanel prices. The prices in the European countries increased as well due to weakening of the Euro currency while the price in United States remain the same. The conclusion: when Chanel announced a price increase, it might not mean price increase in all countries ‘anymore’.

Europe Is Still The Best Place To Buy Chanel

The best place to purchase a Chanel bag is still in the countries within the European Union, because comparing to Asia as well as in United States, the price without VAT return is still cheaper. But what will happen in the next price increase 2017?


[The estimated price increase in 2017 is based on the average percentage price increase in the past year]

Next Chanel Price Increase in 2017

In the next price increase, Chanel will certainly increase prices in the European Union countries, especially in the United Kingdom. Prices in Asia and United States might rise a little as well. Chanel prices can increase as much as 13 to 20% because we have seen this in the past. The prices that go up the most are usually for the ‘Classic’ and ‘Iconic’ handbags. Perhaps this is the Chanel’s style of punishment for procrastination, the heart-breaking feeling hurts more than our wallet.

When the Chanel price increase in 2017, we will keep this post updated. So stay tuned!

Chanel is once again leading the flap bag game in the fashion industry. Released for Chanel Spring Summer 2017 Collection Act 2, this bag is the only thing you’ll be needing to further accessorize your outfits. Take a deep breath and fall in love with this Chanel Transparent Tweed Flap Bag.

It is like the Chanel Classic Flap Bag reinvented. This bag offers transparency, which proves to be handy especially if you want to easily reach for your smartphone or your favorite lipstick. It’s also easy to flaunt the accessories you have in the interior – think about your latest smartphone, your favorite Chanel Wallet or earrings.

Chanel fans out there could easily point out the similarities it has with the Chanel Classic Flap Bag, but the differences are quite discernible as well. If you look closer, this newest Chanel flap bag is in a transparent version and has ‘Tweed detailing’ on the edges for an added style and panache. The CC logo on the other hand is prominently displayed in the middle. We also love the fact that it comes with the same-chained shoulder strap that we’re accustomed to!

So what do you think about this ladies? Is it a yes or a no?

Chanel Ballerina: An Icon Since 1984

CATEGORIES:Designer Shoes


The backstory is straightforward enough. Back in 1984, Karl Lagerfeld (who had been with Chanel for only a year then), was inspired by a two-tone slingback Gabrielle Chanel created in 1957. His interpretation became known as the Ballerina. Made in Beige to lengthen the leg, and capped with a black toe to shorten the foot (because, anything to flatter the feet, right?), it has become a house icon since, something you’ll always find on the shoe shelves of any Chanel boutique you walk into.


The iconic Chanel bag? The Classic Flap. The one piece of RTW every woman should have? That would be the little black jacket. Jewellery? Pearls, pearls and more pearls. And when it comes to footwear, yes, you guessed it, it’s the ballerina. The essential style equivalent to, say, loafers for men (or is it sneakers these days), this is one shoe that’s the perfect weekend everything.

Relaxed, without being sloppy (impossible with the stitched CC logo, the little leather ribbon and of course, the contrasting toe cap), Chanel’s ballerina is also easy to wear (I mean, it’s a slip-on after all), it’s comfortable and most importantly, it will complete most any outfit you intend to wear for the day, be it tea with the girlfriends or shopping up and down Orchard Road.


Now available in a plethora of colours, finishes and materials, you’ll find the ballerinas in everything from lambskin to suede, from grosgrain to woven metallic plastic threads, something new for the Spring-Summer 2017 collection. Priced from SGD860 a pair and up, you’ll only need to head to your nearest Chanel boutique to try them out. And if the shoe fits… well, you’ll know what to do.

Chanel launches limited edition platinum Monsieur de Chanel watch

CATEGORIES:Jewelry & Watches

Chanel wowed us last year with when they dropped their Monsieur de Chanel watch, and this year the watch gets a dark new look just in time for Baselworld. The new Monsieur de Chanel features a limited edition 40mm platinum case with a sapphire crystal caseback that flaunts the movement inside.

Unlike its predecessor, this version features a striking black grand few enamel dial, which gives it much cooler look. The jumping hour and retrograde minute hand features remain the same, as does the Caliber 1 movement.

Only 100 of these black beauties have been produced so even the steep $63,000 price tag won’t deter collectors. Chanel has been upping their watch game lately and we’ve definitely taken notice. Last year’s Premier Flying Tourbillon and J12XS were pretty additions to the company’s roster of watches and we’re hoping that in time, their watches for men will be just as diverse.
