I just had the opportunity to stop in at BV in Palm Beach after having eyed a New Grey Metallic Placato Cabat in the window. The color is glorious. The bag glimmered in the sun. I was informed by the SA that this bag is a medium cabat and that the dimensions have changed for medium cabats. The top handles are longer. And the height of the bag is somewhat higher than the traditional medium cabat. The width and depth stayed the same. I was told that all new medium cabats being made will be done in the new dimensions. All older medium cabats will be phased out as they are sold, regardless of classic colors or seasonal treatments. Sorry I do not know the actual new dimensions but for those who have wished to carry this bag on their shoulder, I think their their prayers may have been answered by Mr. Maier.
