I just called Goyard in SF and asked WTF? So, the skinny I got is as follows: Apparently Barneys.com offered some Goyard at less than retail --they had a SALE! (or something like it, that included Goyard). In the interest of protecting their very valuable brand--Goyard suspended Barney's online selling abilities. You can still purchase Goyard from Barney's (for now) but, there is not, at this time, any online retailer selling Goyard bags.
The SA at Goyard- SF told me that you can call any of the stores for assistance and that they would send you pics of any bags you were interested in (and couldn't see on the website). I told him that might not be the smartest business model--how can I fall in love with a bag (enough to ask about it) if I've never seen it? He agreed but said...and I love this. That Goyard, being a French company, just doesn't really believe in online sales.
