Does anyone know the best store in Chicago (i.e. Barneys vs Neiman Marcus vs. Saks) to purchase a Celine mini luggage? Do you think selection vary from store to store? I'm interested in the red, camel or wine colours.
oh I agree -- it happened to me as well (found a smooth camel that had just been returned) --it's definitely worth checking out both store as you never know what you might find. I just meant that for the most part, their inventory isn't all that great (that's not to say that they don't have something popular every now and then!)It's worth checking both locations. I was in the Nordstrom MI Ave store when they received a shipment - they had cobalt blue suede, orange, black croc embossed, and black small phantoms, a multi colored trapeze and a black mini just a few weeks ago before the holidays. And I've been in Barneys when they had several small luggage and a medium in the last few months. So I agree with iluvmybags in the sense that for consistency, developing a relationship with a SA is the best way to go - but wouldn't discount stumbling upon something fantastic -- if there have been recent shipments I also bought a mini luggage at the NM on MI Ave - it was a return and they had it on the floor. So you just never know
Hmm, that can't right - there are a couple of posts from this weekend in the Intel thread showing Mini Luggage bags from Nordstroms. Unless they ordered a very small quantity, I can't believe they're sold out company wide (altho I do believe the Croc Phantom is sold out - that was a pretty popular style)
I heard that too! The shop-in-shops thus far look really nice. They had 2 or 3 Celine's shipped to the MI Ave store in the last few weeks. There was a tri-color out... last week? Or a week from this last Friday was when I was in there. Barneys still has the lock on the market out here - they had a huge amount of stock the last time I was in there. Nordstrom only had a handful of pieces.Neiman Marcus on Michigan ave is going to start carrying Celine, I believe starting in 2013! If I remember correctly, she said it would be one of their "mini boutiques" within the store! As soon as I get more info from my SA, I'll pass it along!
Yup, they had three Celine bags last week when I was there - a Hibiscus Trio, a Blush Box and a Terrecotta Mini. Altho, she told me that they were customer returns, and they weren't out on the floor (at least then they weren't), they were in the back room, but she pulled them out for me to see. Maybe since then, they decided to put them out.I heard that too! The shop-in-shops thus far look really nice. They had 2 or 3 Celine's shipped to the MI Ave store in the last few weeks.
