Dear Chanel-know-it-alls I am a little confused now. My SA at NM just called me and told me the metallic purple is going to be priced at USD2695(also confirms the info on"a little more info on NM" thread). However, I was at Saks this past weekend and saw the price for the same bag for USD2495, as the "pics at Saks trunk show" thread indicated. I specifically asked the SA at Saks if that is the wrong price since it seems to be prior the price increase, but she told me the bags will come out at that price. I am pretty sure they are both referring to the 226 metallic purple, so can anyone tell me what is going on here? Thanks in advance.
