I spoke with Anthony at the Bellagio today and during our converation I asked about the purple metallic reissue that will be coming out in the next months or so. It seems Chanel has mixed the hardware on this bag. That's right mixed it, some silver, some gold hardware. I asked are you saying both colors on the same bag? He said yes. Pardon my unimaginable self but w-t-h is that? Sounds like a real Glamour don't to my ears. BTW, if you are confused. It's not one can purchase the bag with either gold or silver hardware, they've taken the guess work out of the equation. You get both wheter you like it or not. (Why is my brain singing fall into the Gap? Gee, I wonder.) If there is a goddess of Chanel, please make it "ain't" so.
