and the first one is mine~~~ My S/A called from the Bellagio this evening to tell me the first Paris-Biarritz tote had arrived. They received the first one at their boutique. I was not completely sure about it, the color of this one is black. I have purchased 4 black Chanel bags since October 2006. He explained the tote is rather large and the canvas is done in such a way as to look like leather. He thought it was leather until he touched it. The boutique also received a small gold tote, I'm sure like the pic posted today in the poll. Neither I nor my S/A are impressed with the small one. He is expecting to receive a large tote in silver at some point. There is also a VERY large tote, he compared it to the original CoCo Cabas. He has that one, but I told him I would stay with the large size. I am judging the tote from the pic that was posted on tPF. CClogo dangles from the zipper and according to David is small. So this bag will not scream "I am Chanel", but it is different and from the pic I saw I think I will like it. When it arrives the first of next week I will post pics and then you all can decide what you think.
