Hi ladies, I'm hoping you all can help shed some light into my predicament.
So from blog post in spottedfashion and some posts by Nitskulei and Chloeglamour I had assumed that the Phantom bag Cameron Diaz was carrying is a Palmelato leather. So I placed an order to the Celine boutique in New York to ship it to me in San Francisco (the SA told me it was Palmelato).
However, the first time I looked at it I feel like it's not as stiff as Nitskulei's phantom and the piping is not as dark. I decided to check out my local Barney's and apparently they have one that looks exactly like Cameron Diaz's phantom.
But according to this picture posted by Unoma or Nitskulei, the left bag is the natural calfskin, and the right one is the Palmelato.
But in my case, it's completely the opposite, my palmelato phantom that was sent to me (with 18RM color code, same with Nitskulei's and Chloeglamour's code) was identical to the left one, and the one in Barney's with the 04LU color code is the right one. And from looking in the Celine Reference Library thread, 04LU is a Natural Calfskin Leather. (a helpful post by cottonblanc)
So right now I'm completely clueless, I don't know what's going on. Is it an error in labeling the bags? Did the NY SA duped me into buying the old supple calfskin phantom? And the price of those two are the same, $2950 both for 18RM and 04LU
I'm hoping someone can explain to me about this, pardon my cluelessness, I'm a Celine newbie lol
