So while I love Chanel every time I go to a boutique I leave empty handed... I would LOVE to have a jumbo or a timeless clutch (or both) in a nice color like this season's lovely red, or any other bright and interesting color. Trouble is, whenever I ask about it the SAs laugh at me and insist that, for eg, there is no red this season (only the perfo), or that the clutch only comes in black and white... I always insist that I have seen pics and that friends of mine have bought other colors (that's you, lovely PFers!) but the SAs insist so much that I can't convince them that I *know* what I'm asking for! I have given them my phone# several times asking to please call me if a red comes in but they never have... Also, in 2005, I'd seen some pics of a nice sky blue classic flap in a magazine, tore out the page and gave it to my mother who went to the rue Cambon boutique, showed it to the SAs and they said that this color doesn't exist, and that the classic flap only came in black white and beige that season. So maybe that sky blue was never released in France? So... Do any of you have similar experiences? Also, does Chanel make different colors in the USA and Paris? Did anyone find this season's red in Paris? Please help, I am now determined to find a colorful Chanel purse!
