I'm on this forum for months and bought my bags on internet. In my village there is no departement stores.I had the opportunity to go to Paris two months ago and so i bought for the first time a bag in a chanel boutique. WHAT A DECEPTION !!!! I had dreamt of these beautiful bags you showed ( especially the great pics of Chanelboy). I already had a list in my mind and when i arrived in the boutique only 2 paris-Biarritz, 3 cambon and some classic flaps. . no diagonal CC, no luxury bowler, no timeless clutches. So i finally asked myself: Are the bags in the US different from those sold in france? And from other countries? It seems a bit silly but i don't have any other explanation.
