Hi everybody! okay, here it is, now I promise, no jokes, no unnecessary chit-chat by me (at lest, i'll keep it at a minimum , this is serious business, not unlike a State of the Union report : ok, today, trunk show at Saks at Town Center Mall, Boca Raton. There were maybe 15-18 new bags shown....interestingly enough, it seems as though Chanel is doing much more subtle logos for Spring '07, meaning the CCs were either small, or semi-hidden, only a few had them big and visible. The bags started at around $1,300+ but most were starting at $1850-1,900) (except for the adorable Naked Bag which i will describe below. I remember almost all of show.... 1. The "Naked Bag" is wonderful...$995, yes its clear plastic, BUT, the big gold CC on the front and classic gold chain shoulder straps make it a great mix of classic and fun. (This was one of the few bags with a big visible CC). I absolutely love it, in fact, am no. 2 on the list. Its only (only! lol) $995 and is a limited edition. I was told that it would be a big seller....(maybe that was just the SA's opinion, not sure) Size is great too, a little wider than the medallion tote, just a tad higher and it expands 'cause its clear plastic, so you can fit the world in there. Great for girls in retail who have to use a clear purse for security reasons, and it can also be lined with the black dust cover it comes with, or colorful scarf, for privacy to hide belongings. Very chic 2. killer royal blue lambskin large (but not huge) classic shoulder bag with pocket on outside.....this one was being looked at alot. 3. Not alot of caviar leather, mostly seemed like the purses were lambskin, not great for care but so gorgeous. 4. There were alot of bags in bright colors: lemon yellow, red, orange, that were like the classic 255 flaps in size and general style......but with new little flourishes on them. 5. The largest was a kelly green tote, quilted leather,,,,,with the silver CC charm dangling from zipper area (but charm not as big as the Coco Cabas charm) TDF! But i do not need another big Chanel....new vinyl Cabas took care of that 6. alot of classic chain shoulderstraps 7. KILLER metallic gold tote in 2 sizes, medium ( you can still fit alot in) and large, the bottom part of the bag is the gold part and the top part around the zipper is goldish linen. Same bag comes in silver but instead of goldish linen, its white linen. The colored parts are quilted, large pattern. The metallic colors are subtle, not bright. This one I think is under $1,400 (for the smaller) 8. By the way, Naked Bag also comes in a small size like the smallish 255 flap. But the bigger one is like a tote.....am surprised i love it, but i do! small size would make an amazing evening bag............its quite classic, actually. Picture it with clear acrylic sandals like Stuart Weisman makes...(actually what am i saying, Chanel has a stunning pair of see-through sandals at the Trunk Show lol) PS Neimans trunk sale is first week of Feb. here....they will have different items. PPS No jewelry, but the SHOES were lovely....the new ballet flats/maryjanes are the sweetest things, my friend Gayle (Sasha's Mom on PF, new member) ) put her name on list for them immediately anyway, my pleasure telling you all this....waitlisted items will arrive no later than early March PPPS the pics on here this morning by PF member (i cant remember who but one of the regulars i think) were very great renditions of what was at show.....but no adorable no. 10, and no red,white,blue bag. Oh, perforated white jumbo flap is TDF. I crooned to it "Hello lover!" (am channeling Carrie again, in SITC episode when she saw Blahniks in store window lol) Claudia..............................and if anyone else is going to trunk shows please please share? PPPPS classy gentlemen circling around the custoers with champagne, water, etc.
