They are not exactly the same. I have 21C medium CF and 21S classic card holder. The 21C is closer to being true white and has a bit more sheen than 21S white. 21S white is slightly warmer than 21C
I asked my SA in Italy. She said the code is the same they are the same.. by Instagram photo I also feel they are different..

That's not true though. There are tons of examples of Chanel using the same color codes for very different shades in different seasons. Just because they are both color coded "white" does mean there's not subtle differences. I have 20B white which is also the color coded white but it a bit different than these as well. Similar, but not an exact match.

Here’s my jumbo. It’s beautiful but I noticed that the leather looks and feels really dry in certain areas on the front flap and other areas seem more... coated? :sad: I don’t know if I should keep it. I really don’t want to return it but it bothers me. What do you guys think? 275BFE7F-5211-4D33-B84C-268267305334.jpeg
This area looks very dry/wrinkled: EE8C0557-BE46-4F8F-B56A-B2109ABBC7FC.jpeg
Vs this area which doesn’t:

I don’t know if I’m being too picky. I think if it was a darker color it wouldn’t bother me as much but it’s very noticeable

Does anyone know a sa with a neon pink mini?
I just got one I might return! It’s perfect, aside from the chain. The chain has two areas that slip. Noticed it’s a problem with the neon pink minis. Thinking about returning because it just wasn’t what I was looking for... honestly a little underwhelmed. I can load some pics. It’s from Beverly Hills solo boutique.

I know what a blessing it was to even get your hands on this beauty. Sorry it arrived less inspiring than hoped. I honestly don’t think it looks bad. But you are the one looking at it, holding, feeling, using... definitely don’t settle if you think it will really bother you. One amazing thing about leather is it can gain hydration and moisture. Do you know a leather specialist in your area?

I don’t see the dry leather on the NC020 pink mini, but the stitching on the quilting definitely looks weird - like the leather didn’t quite line up when they made the stitch and is now pulling!

Has any one seen this type of effect on the quilt before and if it would cause the leather to tear over time? I am not too worried about the look but only concern is if the leather will break around the stitching at some point...

The leather can vary and I’ve noticed this with different collections in the past. How does that dry area feel when you touch it? The mini in this color feels very soft and the leather is thick and beautiful. Even the leather in the chain is noticeably thicker compared to some of my older minis. I don’t have the jumbo so I can’t compare the quality, but if this really bothers you perhaps you can exchange for a square or rectangular mini in this color. Depending on where you’re located, I’ve also seen it made in the small size :love:
