Hiya! I read some posts that say that there actually is a black reissue with gold hardware! Exactly what I've been scouring the EARTH for! Could you help point me out to boutiques that have it in stock. I'm in Singapore, and they are most probably selling it at Chanel at about the US retail price of $2350. And that's if they get any in the first place! So I'll call up to order if you TPF members spot any! Thanks much!
