black patent tote in March Vogue

  1. Anybody know anything about this bag? It's being worn by Barbara Atkin, fashion director of the Canadian department store Holt Renfrew. No details are provided. Is it an older (even vintage) bag? Or is it something new that we haven't seen here on tPF yet????

    (It's not the patent F/W 06 Diamond Shine or the S/S 07 Luxury tote.)

  2. I think its an older style.
     
  3. Very pretty! OT, I just love the Diamond Shine tote!
     
  4. On the one hand, the bag with gold hardware that Atkin is wearing looks sort of "vintage-y." But on the other hand, patent hasn't been "in" for a while, and Chanel hasn't made patent bags for a while that I can recall. And as someone in the fashion industry, she would have access to upcoming bags that haven't hit the shelves yet.
     
  5. I think that is a vintage style as well--it could be coming back, updated in patent!
     
  6. Chanel makes at least one version of a patent bag every season I think. I agree it looks vintage to me.
     
  7. Especially if the hardware is gold. I've been having problems finding hardware that isn't silver coloured. The classics have gold chains, but the recent seasonal pieces are usually silver. If this bag has a gold chain (and it looks like it in the picture) than it could be an older bag.
     
  8. Yes, I agree that most bags (by Chanel and other designers) in recent years have had silver hardware. But then, beginning around last fall, you started seeing gold hardware creep back in. Some of the department stores like Neimans were pushing that whole "black-and-gold" theme for F/W 06, remember? So perhaps Chanel will come around for you Jayne1!
     
  9. That would be nice! :yes:
     
  10. If that is a pre-launch bag that she has on and it might be coming out later, my soon-to-be initiated purse ban is already in some serious trouble! :rolleyes: (for the sake of my wallet please let that be some vintage treasure that I could never possibly get ahold of. Please.)
