Celebrities Went Pretty in Pink at the 2022 Met Gala

Pink seemed to be a common theme on the red carpet of the 2022 Met Gala.In celebrating American designers and fashion as the second of the two-part examination by the Costume Institute, many celebrities opted for outfits highlighting accents of pink. Whether they wanted to emphasize the feminine aspect of its theme “Gilded Glamour” or simply because they wanted to wear pink, it seemed many stars shared the same idea.
Valentino’s creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli arrived with his entourage of celebrities wearing designs inspired by his “Pink PP” collection, which was showcased in his fall 2022 show in Milan this spring. Nicola Peltz Beckham, who recently tied the knot with Brooklyn Peltz Beckham last month, arrived in a draped pink dress with a plunging neckline while her husband wore a baby pink suit. Piccioli also designed Peltz Beckham’s wedding dress.

Glenn Close and Sebastian Stan also rocked the designer’s now-signature hot pink, wearing the bright hue from head-to-toe. Close wore a button-down and matching pants under an embroidered cape jacket by Valentino, while Stan wore a button-down paired with baggy pants and matching pink sneakers and an oversized pink Valentino jacket.
Additionally, “You” actress Jenna Ortega also sported a bright pink look by Valentino. She wore an embroidered tunic shirt with flower applications over a pair of hot pink tights and satin pink heels.

Prabal Gurung was another designer with a slew of pink in his posse of stars, including Kiki Layne, Ashley Park and newcomer Denée Benton, best known for her role in the HBO Max series “The Gilded Age.”
Layne wore a pink gown with button detailing and flower-like ruffles, pairing the dress with matching white gloves with the same ruffle details. Park wore a hot pink corset with off-the-shoulder bow sleeves and a black-and-white ostrich feather skirt featuring a train. Benton wore a draped, bustle-inspired look with a red column gown and pink ruffles on the waist, paired with white gloves up to her elbow and intricate necklaces.
Tessa Thompson channeled her inner ballerina in a custom blush pink corset gown by Carolina Herrera that featured gathered tulle and a 200-meter train. The dress was designed by the brand’s creative director Wes Gordon, who walked alongside Thompson on the red carpet.
Other celebrities who wore pink outfits at the 2022 Met Gala include Molly Sims in Monique Lhuilllier, Sza in Vivienne Westwood, Wendi Murdoch in Giambattista Valli, Adwoa Aboah in Tory Burch, Nicola Coughlan in Richard Quinn and Diane von Furstenberg.
This year’s Met Gala focused on the theme, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” which is a celebration of American fashion. This year’s dress code was “Gilded Glamour,” which takes inspiration from The Gilded Age in New York during the time period between 1870 and 1890.
The “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” exhibition will open to the public on May 7. The first part of the exhibition, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” remains open at the Costume Institute. Both will close in September.

A Breakdown of the Fashion in ‘Selling Sunset’ Season Five

A Breakdown of the Fashion in ‘Selling Sunset’ Season Five

It’s no secret that “Selling Sunset” is more than just a show about the luxury real estate market in Los Angeles.Since the show premiered in 2019, the women on the hit Netflix reality series have become well-known not just for their seemingly successful careers as agents, but also for their dramatic storylines and, of course, their bold, vibrant grasps on fashion that continued in the program’s fifth season, which made its debut on Friday.
Cast members such as Christine Quinn, Heather Rae El Moussa, Mary Fitzgerald, Amanza Smith and Chrishell Stause have leaned into a more unconventional sense of everyday office attire, striding in sky-high heels no matter the occasion. Meanwhile, Maya Vander and Davina Portratz have kept a more simple, sleek but still chic style on the show.

Its newcomers Emma Hernan, Vanessa Villela and now Chelsea Lazkani match the original cast’s energy when it comes to over-the-top dressing, with the former two joining in the fourth season and the latter making waves with her fearless personality and designer outfits in the fifth.

The anticipated and drama-filled fifth season is no exception, as cast members like Quinn and Lazkani in particular have upped their sense of style, wearing brighter colors, bolder textures and patterns and sporting more monochromatic looks.
Leading the charge for most stylish is Quinn, styled by Kat Gosik, who is well-known for her daring outfits and her personality. From a fiery all-red Balmain outfit to preppy looks by Alessandra Rich, Quinn did not hold back when it came to style in the fifth season.

“She is so much fun, because she’s like a Barbie doll. Anything she wears looks good on her,” Gosik told WWD. “I love that her style is very diverse — we can go cool and edgy and also pink and fitted. Everything fits her.”
Quinn stays true to her so-called “goth Barbie” aura this season by wearing a BDSM-inspired look in an leather Area corset paired with black Gucci lace gloves and an Alessandra Rich serpent necklace while also exuding Malibu Barbie in wearing a pink tweed and denim Balmain dress.
“I think she likes to dress up. She doesn’t mind wearing heels and doesn’t mind wearing pieces that are uncomfortable,” Gosik said. “To get the look, she’ll do it. I’ve worked with other people that, if the outfit is not comfortable, they don’t want to wear it. Christine is like, ‘I’ll do anything for the look.’”
Up there with Quinn for most audacious in personality and style is Lazkani, a London native unafraid to tell people what she really thinks. This season, the realtor seems to almost command every room she walks into, not only because of her demeanor, but also because of her outfits.

In the fifth season, Lazkani has worn designer-clad outfits, most notably a leather trench dress by Louis Vuitton and head-to-toe Burberry outfit complete with a headband and matching Chanel bag. For her first visit to the L.A.-based Oppenheim Group, she wore a gold sequined dress by Balmain, while one of her outfits at home was an all-pink ensemble by Area topped with a bright pink headband by Prada.
Quinn is not alone in the walking Barbie-doll category, as the other blonde cast members Hernan and El Moussa (formerly Young), also emanate a feminine and chic energy in their everyday work attire and topping each look with jewelry by Chanel, Dior or Gucci.
When she entered the scene in the fourth season, it seemed Hernan was giving Quinn a run for her money in terms of career and style. This season, the Boston native has been seen in outfits by Nadine Merabi, Sau Lee, Dion Lee, Bronx and Banco, among others, pairing them with bags by Bottega Veneta, Louis Vuitton, Gucci and more.

El Moussa, styled by Caitlin Jaymes, is more classic in her sense of style, wearing some fitted silhouettes to find the balance between “sexy as well as sophisticated.”
The real estate agent this season has worn designs by Fendi, Gucci, Ganni, Louis Vuitton and Retrofete while pairing them with jewelry by Chanel or Gucci and topping off her look with purses from Dior, Valentino and Chanel.

“[Heather] knows what looks good on her. She doesn’t feel pressured to try out every single trend,” Jaymes told WWD. “Our goal is always to make sure everything is catered to her body and looking as feminine [and] classy, as possible. She doesn’t really care if she’s not, quote-unquote, the ‘trendiest’ girl out there. She wants to look presentable as well as fashionable.”
A notable look worn by El Moussa in the season is a custom one by Karen Sabag for her bridal shower, which was perhaps both Jaymes’ and El Moussa’s favorite look from the season. The strapless off-white minidress captured her personality, covered in embellishments and finished with feathers on the hem.
“It was the perfect dress. Everyone in the shower kept saying: ‘If I could pick one dress that could describe Heather’s style.’ It was so beautiful,” Jaymes said.
Another agent with a unique grasp on fashion is Stause, who has skyrocketed to fame since appearing on the hit reality series. Though she works with stylist Andrew Gelwicks on events and projects outside the show, Stause styles herself on “Selling Sunset.”
Like most of the women on the show, Stause is rarely ever seen in black, always wearing bright, vibrant hues such as yellow, pink and green.

“She has a really strong understanding of who she is and what her style and aesthetic is. But at the same time she is really open to experimenting and trying different things,” Gelwicks told WWD. “She loves color and I think she utilizes color really well, which I think is so refreshing. She has a really good ability to play with feminine silhouettes, but then really juxtapose them with her own edge and really make each piece her own.”
Throughout the season, Stause is seen in designs by Cynthia Rowley, Staud, Hervé Legér, A.L.C., Alex Perry, Area, Ronny Kobo and Balmain, among others. Known for her bright, bubbly personality, Stause manages to exude that easily in the way she dresses on as well as off the show.
“From my perspective when I dress Chrishell, I think so much of her personality comes into it,” Gelwick said. “She has such a buoyant personality, and I think that’s really reflective in her fashion, in everything she wears. There’s a connective tissue between what she’s wearing and who Chrishell is and why we all love her.”

Though the entire fifth season premiered Friday, a reunion is still in the works, premiering on May 6. Gelwicks helped style Stause for the upcoming episode.
“I think the reunion look will definitely be one of my favorite looks. It’s just really dramatic and different for anything Chrishell has been seen in so I think being able to show a different side of her is so exciting,” Gelwicks said.

Everything to Know About Harry Styles’ Upcoming Album ‘Harry’s House’

Harry Styles’ upcoming album “Harry’s House” is almost here.“Harry’s House” is the award-winning singer’s third studio album as a solo artist.

Styles first stepped onto the scene as one of the five members of the famous boy band One Direction, alongside Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne. Over the years, he, as well as the other members, grew to be some of the biggest stars in music. The group eventually announced their indefinite hiatus in 2016, with each of its members going off to lead solo careers.
Since then, Styles has released two successful albums and has become one of the biggest influences in modern-day fashion, comfortably blending gender norms by wearing dresses and other items traditionally popular among women. Last year, Styles also launched his own beauty brand, called Pleasing.
Some of his most notable looks include his Gucci outfit at the 2019 Met Gala, which featured a black lace and sheer top with black dress pants, the three different boas he wore at the 2021 Grammys and his Vogue cover for the December 2020 issue in which he wore a dress by Gucci.
At last year’s Grammy Awards, Styles won the award for Best Pop Solo Performance for his hit song “Watermelon Sugar.”

These Vintage Stores Are Supplying the Fashion in Today’s Popular TV Shows

These Vintage Stores Are Supplying the Fashion in Today’s Popular TV Shows

Vintage fashion has always been used in the costumes of popular TV shows, but many recent projects, such as “Euphoria,” “And Just Like That” and “Halston,” are bringing vintage more prominently into focus.Recently, many TV shows have leaned more heavily into vintage fashion for their costumes for myriad reasons, such as to more accurately reflect the time period or to incorporate unique pieces into the wardrobe.
HBO’s hit teen drama “Euphoria,” for one, focused on fantastical fashion for its recent second season both with modern, off-the-runway styles and through vintage designer pieces. The show put a spotlight on vintage fashion with its new character Samantha, who is Maddy’s boss and has an extensive vintage collection. Costume designer Heidi Bivens worked closely with Los Angeles-based vintage store Aralda Vintage owner Brynn Jones for those scenes, where Jones supplied hundreds of vintage pieces from her own collection from designer brands like Mugler, Dior, Chanel, Versace and more.

Other costume designers have been incorporating vintage fashion into TV shows to spotlight indie designers and vendors and be more sustainable. Melissa Walker, who is behind shows like “Dollface” and “Pen15,” is a costume designer whose taken on this philosophy, working with vintage stores like the East Village Vintage Collective and Zingara Vintage for her recent projects.
Here, WWD rounds up some of the vintage fashion stores that are behind the wardrobes of today’s most popular TV shows. Read on for more.
Aralda Vintage

Aralda Vintage has been a mainstay in the Los Angeles vintage scene since 2016, but the store recently was thrown into the spotlight thanks to the recent season of “Euphoria” where founder Brynn Jones and her extensive designer vintage collection were tapped for one of the storylines for the hit HBO teen drama.
Jones worked with costume designer Heidi Bivens for a scene in the second episode where Maddy, played by Alexa Demie, babysits for a wealthy woman named Samantha (played by Minka Kelly) who has a lavish designer vintage collection. Demie is seen in a massive closet full of unique pieces and tries on an array of high-fashion styles like a 1991 Thierry Mugler Kessler dress, a 1997 camelia print Chanel shirtdress, a metallic Halston caftan dress and a gold sequined Dior gown.
“It’s always been a pipe dream of mine to either work in set design or costume design,” Jones said. “It’s something that I just never fully pursued and to be able to do this was a dream come true.”
Demie, a longtime friend of Jones, connected her to Bivens for the episode. Jones and Bivens were initially planning on selecting a few dresses for the scene, but the costume designer decided it would be better if Jones decorated the whole closet with her collection.
“It was this really fun interactive math problem,” Jones said on how she filled the closet with more than 200 pieces from her collection, including clothes, shoes, jewelry and handbags. “I spent weeks and my living room was filled with rolling racks that I would rearrange. It was almost like I was rearranging flowers in a sense, like back and forth what dress looked better next to each other.”
Jones’ decorated closet ultimately served a prominent role in the season. According to Jones, “Euphoria” creator Sam Levinson loved the closet so much that he rewrote the scene so more action took place there. Levinson was also inspired by Jones’ purple sequined Norman Norell dress worn by Kelly and created a small storyline around the garment.

This was Jones’ first time working on a TV show, but she explained she’s open to doing more projects if they’re a fit like “Euphoria” was.
Arcade

A Current Affair is one of the biggest vintage fashion pop-up shows in the country, and cofounder Richard Wainwright took the concept to the next level in 2018 by creating a permanent storefront in Brooklyn, called Arcade, that houses a rotating selection of vintage vendors from across the country.
Arcade has caught the eye of many costume designers over the last four years, including Danny Santiago and Molly Rogers, who were responsible for the fashion in the “Sex and the City” reboot, “And Just Like That.”
“Obviously, Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw was iconic for mixing and matching high and low, vintage and new, designer and non-label,” Wainwright said. “I think part of [the costume designers’] process was probably like let’s hit all of the vintage stores in New York and see what they have, so they discovered us and they bought from us through the entire season.”
Several of Arcade’s pieces made it into the reboot on Parker, including a raw silk rainbow caftan dress that was worn as a duster, a vintage Judith Leiber bag and a screen-printed New York City-themed T-shirt.
Arcade has also assisted on many of producer Ryan Murphy’s recent projects, such as “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” and “Pose.”
When curating Arcade, Wainwright’s philosophy is similar to that of A Current Affair. He tries to highlight vendors from across the country to give customers the chance to shop collections they normally wouldn’t have access to. All pieces at Arcade are available for purchase.
“I feel like people are looking for meaning and a sense of history and context,” Wainwright said on the popularity of vintage fashion. “And then just for practical reasons, there’s nothing in stores. That’s probably a supply chain issue and designers taking seasons off because of COVID-19 or they couldn’t get the materials they needed. I feel like if you look all over the Internet at vintage shops or go into a vintage shop, there’s things that will actually inspire you and make you want to shop. You don’t get that feeling when you shop retail.”
East Village Vintage Collective

Established in 2015, East Village Vintage Collective has been a destination for many recent TV shows and films that are looking for affordable vintage options from the 1960s to the 1990s, including “The Deuce,” “The Get Down” and “Pose.”
Owner Maegan Hayward said while many costume designers that come into her store are secretive about their projects, some work more closely with her to pull specific pieces or look into a certain decade.

“I know a lot of the costume designers and buyers often are renting things and most of the time when they come to us they buy everything outright because everything is just so affordable,” she explained. “But, a lot of the times they’ll come in and they’re working on a show and we’ll have to do a little investigating to figure out what it was because it’s always fun to see the stuff they use and how they style it.”
Over the years, Hayward has developed a close friendship with costume designer Melissa Walker, who is behind the fashion in Hulu’s “Dollface” and “Pen15,” where the two pulled more Y2K-inspired pieces for the contemporary shows.
Hayward sources her collection on a national scale. Pre-pandemic, Hayward had an additional vintage store in Florida and when she would drive down she would stop at multiple vintage stores and vendors on the way to curate her collection. She also finds pieces through estate sales and has vendors come to her to sell their vintage pieces.
Because her business working with TV shows and films has grown considerably over recent years, Hayward has plans to expand her in-store collection to include more of her archival pieces.
Ian Drummond Collection Inc.

After starting his vintage business in 1984, Ian Drummond has become one of the go-to sources for costume designers to curate their wardrobes, particularly for period pieces or projects that take place between the 1970s to 1990s.
Drummond, whose business is located in Toronto, has recently worked with the costume designers for TV shows like “Halston,” “Ratched” and “Feud,” which were all period pieces in their own right.
“It’s collaborative, but we try to give [the costume designers] as much leeway as possible because there are very few projects that have cart blanche that can just buy or rent and not worry about budgets,” Drummond said about the process of working on these projects. “That’s why a lot of costume designers approach rental houses because it helps them stretch their budget. You can’t go on first dibs and buy everything. I haven’t seen a show yet that just buy, buy, buy, unless maybe from Patricia Field.”
Drummond explained that the bulk of his vintage collection now comes from estate sales and that he carries designers like Escada, Donna Karan, Adolfo Sardinia and Oscar de la Renta. He stated that his collection is broken up between rentals and sales, with Drummond usually holding onto more conventional pieces in standard sizes for rental and selling the more unique pieces.
“Sometimes, some things are so unique that it probably deserves to be sold as opposed to waiting 10 years for the right person to come along and rent it,” he said. “Renting key pieces to designers that ultimately end up on actors, if it’s the right actor wearing it then I never need to rent it again because [the piece] has all the prominence it’s ever going to need if I decide to sell it later.”
Drummond also explained that while it’s natural for costume designers from period pieces to rent their wardrobes, he’s been seeing more contemporary TV shows and films look to vintage fashion as an added layer of the storytelling and character.

“Even if it’s contemporary, [the costume designers] love the idea of putting vintage into it,” he said. “It’s like an Easter egg where people wouldn’t realize it unless they knew what they were looking at. That’s a big draw too for costume design. There’s so much being produced these days and to be able to tell your story coherently and with originality, why wouldn’t you use vintage? It helps separate the character from the shopping. It’s easy to run to the mall, but I think costume designers want to give their characters some edge and vintage is such a perfect way to do that.”
The Way We Wore

Doris Raymond’s The Way We Wore store is home to eclectic and unique vintage pieces that have resonated with customers and costume designers alike.
Raymond first started The Way We Wore in 1981 in San Francisco, later closing the store and working out of a warehouse doing TV and film rentals before she opened her Los Angeles store in 2004. She carries a range of designers from decades up until the mid-2000s.
“I look much more for the aesthetic and if a style transcends time and the quality of the materials used,” she explained. “If it happens to have a Chanel label, bingo I’ll take it. But an ugly Chanel is an ugly Chanel, so I’m not as brand centric as a lot of other businesses.”
Over the years, she’s developed close relationships with some of today’s most prominent costume designers and has assisted on projects such as “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “Perry Mason,” “Mrs. America” and HBO’s new series, “Our Flag Means Death.”
“[The costume designers] typically share with me their storyboards and their inspiration sheets,” she said. “What I always get is the year, the season, the color palette, the class of people and a general idea of who the characters are and the story. From that, I do a whirl through the store and I bring hundreds of pieces into the main boutique for them to peruse.”

For “Our Flag Means Death,” a pirate-themed comedy that debuted this month, Raymond said costume designer Christine Wada bought hundreds of pieces from her to dress the show’s eccentric characters.
When speaking about “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” Raymond called the show “one of the best fashionable interpretations that’s ever been on television.”
“What [costume designer] Donna [Zakowska] does for the Maisel character — fashion is the center point outside her comedic talent,” she said.
Zingara Vintage

Owner Erin Silvers’ Zingara Vintage in Queens has become a destination for vintage and repurposed terrycloth garments, which have been featured in several photoshoots as well as Hulu’s “Dollface” and the upcoming HBO series “The White House Plumbers.”
Silvers first opened her store in 2015 and slowly built up a collection of terrycloth garments that she resells or repurposes into new garments. Her collection includes terrycloth garments that date back to the 1940s.
“I started collecting vintage terrycloth after I sold a jacket that I wish I never sold, which is the age-old vintage story,” she said. “I’ve collected hundreds of terrycloth garments and I wouldn’t let anyone see them because it was such a special collection that I was creating essentially an archive or a retrospective of waterside culture through the decades.”
“Dollface” costume designer Melissa Walker had been a longtime fan of Zingara Vintage and reached out to Silvers after she presented her terrycloth collection at the Manhattan Vintage Show roughly a year and a half ago. The two then worked together to choose a terrycloth matching set worn by Shay Mitchell during a poolside scene in “Dollface” season two. Silvers explained the set took her six years to create because she had to find two towels that matched to create the pants.
Silvers curates her collection from vendors across the world. Given the delicate materials she works with, many of her pieces are for rental while some are for sale.
Coming up next, one of Silvers’ terrycloth creations will be featured in HBO’s “The White House Plumbers,” a limited series that centers on the Watergate scandal.

A Closer Look at Rihanna’s Pregnancy Style So Far

A Closer Look at Rihanna’s Pregnancy Style So Far

If anyone has elevated maternity fashion as of late, it is Rihanna.The singer-turned-businesswoman has continued to one-up herself when it comes to style during her pregnancy. She and her boyfriend A$AP Rocky revealed in January they were expecting their first child together.
While it seems many celebrities tend to hide or shield their baby bumps, Rihanna seems to have fully embraced her growing belly by wearing crop tops and more revealing pieces that show off her body.
Since the news broke, the singer has stepped out in some of her most memorable and boldest looks to date, taking on red carpet events and Milan and Paris Fashion Week by storm.
In true Rihanna fashion, the pregnancy announcement came in the form of a glamorous street style photo shoot taken by celebrity photographer Diggzy on the streets of New York.

In the photos, Rihanna wore a bright pink puffer trenchcoat by Chanel and long, blue ripped jeans as she walked hand-in-hand with A$AP Rocky. She also wore a black jeweled belt by Chanel and had her hair in long curls, keeping her makeup look simple.
The pink Chanel coat is reportedly from the fashion house’s fall 1996 collection.

A few days after the reveal, the singer posted a photo of herself in an oversized sports jersey showing off her baby bump, as well as the images by Diggzy. “how the gang pulled up to black history month,” she captioned it.
In February, Rihanna uploaded another carousel of photos taken by Diggzy of herself in an all-black ensemble from head to toe, wearing a lace up bodysuit, tight black pants, a black puffer and black stiletto pumps embellished with jewelry.

During an event in Los Angeles celebrating Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin, the singer appeared in a glittery look by The Attico, which was a sheer, shredded outfit that included a backless lime-green top and pink ombré pants.

That month, Rihanna uploaded another group of jaw-dropping photos of herself wearing a colorful fur coat over a tie-front leather top and blue denim jeans. She topped off the look with nude sandals and a camouflage trucker hat.

At Gucci’s ready-to-wear show in February, the style icon wore a latex and lace cropped top that showed off her growing baby bump, paired with black trousers with a dragon motif, a purple fur jacket and a mirror-embellished chainmail headpiece. She also accessorized with a tanzanite and aquamarine estate cross necklace from Briony Raymond.

During the Bulgari party in Paris, Rihanna wore a cut-out aqua bodysuit by Stella McCartney from the label’s spring 2022 ready-to-wear collection. She topped off the look with matching sunglasses from Gucci and an oversize utility trench coat.

While out in Paris, the businesswoman wore a look by Y/Project from the label’s fall 2022 collection, featuring a large brown sherpa teddy coat, white hoodie and matching brown leather boots.

Why Are Prices of Designer Handbags Increasing?

Why Are Prices of Designer Handbags Increasing?

Over the last few years, the prices of some designer handbags have increased exponentially.Luxury fashion houses such as Chanel and Louis Vuitton have increased prices for some of their signature bags recently. The former shocked the industry in November when it increased the price tag for its iconic Medium Classic Flap bag for the third time in 2021.
In January 2021, the price of the Medium Flap Bag was reportedly $6,800. In July, Chanel increased the price to $7,800. The price of the bag has now risen to $8,800, nearly on par with the starting price of the coveted Hermès Birkin bag.
According to a spokesperson for Chanel, the increase in price is due to exchange-rate fluctuations, changes in production costs and to make sure its bags have roughly the same pricing around the world.

Since November 2019, the price of Chanel’s Medium Flap Bag in the U.S. has increased by 60 percent, according to data compiled by the Jefferies Group, an investment banking company. Its larger counterpart, the 2.55 bag, also increased, to $9,500. In June 2021, the 2.55 was reportedly $7,400.

The French luxury house’s other signature bags, such as the Boy, the Gabrielle and Chanel 19, have also increased by 10 to 15 percent in price.

Louis Vuitton has been increasing the prices of its classic handbags, such as the popular Pochette Accessoires Monogram Canvas, which went from $630 as of early 2021 to $1,050 as of this writing. The label reportedly hiked prices at least twice in the last year.
According to Sotheby’s, Chanel has increased the price of its handbags four times since the pandemic began in March 2020. Additionally, following the Hermès strategy, the label has placed a limit on exactly how many bags a customer can purchase per year in its efforts to make it more exclusive, though restrictions may differ depending where they are purchasing from, whether it be New York, Shanghai or Paris, among others.
Charles Gorra, chief executive officer of Rebag, which sells pre-owned luxury handbags, told Bloomberg that Chanel is striving “to be part of the Hermès world and less of the Vuitton and Gucci world. They are trying to go upscale.”
It’s no secret that coveted designer goods have increased in price with time due to inflation and other contributing factors. In 1990, the price of Chanel’s Medium Flap Bag was reportedly $1,150. When it was first introduced in 1955, the handbag was sold for $220.
Every year, it is not uncommon for designers to increase their price incrementally to account for material and labor costs. In 2021, prices were increased to make up for the losses in the previous year due to the pandemic, especially a significant decrease in international sales from frequent customers such as those from China.
Despite the significant price increases, that doesn’t seem to be turning away its consumer base. Chanel continues to be a label that retains its high value in the resale market and that aspect is unlikely to change.
