I went in yesterday to pick up a cles or ludlow, excited from what I saw from pictures here.. but when i saw it I wasn't wowed. I was hoping for some glitz and sparkle, and more color. I may get an agenda in it if its released though. Do you think maybe it was just the lighting? Should I give it a second chance?

My SA said she didn't like it when she first saw it yday but today in the store liked it better. Apparently they changed the light bulbs in the area where the amarante pieces were. I think lighting does play a big part. It's not a bag that would really stand out at night, but in day, and in good lighting, beautiful!

I will say that the fingerprints are something that annoys me. They really, really stand out.

I think the Amarante Vernis is pretty but I hate how fingerprints show up on it. I bought the Amarante Inclusion bracelet, but their does seem to be a quality problem with them. I looked at several bracelets at 3 different stores and they all had white streaks/flaws in the bracelet. I still own the bracelet and have given up looking for the "perfect" bracelet, but it's annoying that there is a small white streak in the bracelet that I settled with....

I also think that the Amarante is very dark with patina! I like the colour on the pics and at the store, but not for me personally.
First when I saw it I would buy one bag in this colour, but now I think: let it be.:sad:

Love the colour, but can't handle the finger prints:sad:

Shame, but there is no point me buying any other pieces (already returned a wallet) because I would be obsessed about cleaning it every couple of minutes:nogood:

I first thought the same thing too -- but I keep getting NM e-mails telling me to click on to see pre-fall this and pre-fall that -- I figure that this is kind of LV's pre-fall! Everyone will be going ape for fall stuff after the Fourth anyway.
