I saw a picture in that Paris thread. It looks gorgeous! The only thing that bothers me about the new style of cabas (melrose style I guess?) is that the hardware feels really cheap. The big CC is plastic and even the chain that it is attached to is very very light and feels kind of cheap compared to the one on my cabas and luxe ligne tote. It's so gorgeous though! I've only seen the blue melrose IRL, not yet the black satin as it hasn't come in yet.

I saw the satin cabas at the chanel boutique on 57th in nyc. The bag is very pretty, but too large in my opinion for a satin bag. Also as someone posted earlier the hardware is plastic, which kinda turned me off. The fabric is really smooth though.

Yep, the CC's are plastic. Even the metal "looking" chain links that attach the big CC to the bag are super light weight, which is good if you like light things, but makes me wonder about the durability.

I guess since satin in itself is lightweight they wanted to make the hardware light to match? It just felt cheap IMHO. Not something that I would personally pay $1,595 for. Hope that doesn't offend anyone!
