does anyone know what bag Heidi received on this week's episode from spencer? i know it's chanel (it came out of a huge chanel bag/box) but i couldn't really tell what it looked like. all i know is that it's not quilted, its leather and has a short-ish chain strap. you can see it here: http://www.mtv.ca/tvshows/the-hills/index.jhtml or http://www.mtv.com/overdrive/?id=1573360&vid=186669 for US viewers. its in pt 2 (of 4) for the episode.
i heard on the aftershow that it's worth $3600.. anyone?

It's the large Soft and Chain hobo. I own it and the retail was $2350, not $3600. Did he lie to her about the price, because he definitely lied when he said it is the "latest style". It's from the Spring 2007 collection. Maybe he bought it at a huge profit - lucky seller if he did!!

It's an absolutely gorgeous bag; the leather is so rich and "drapey". The only drawback is it lacks a base and has no stucture, so it has to lie flat or hang on something when not in use. If you set it down on a chair or car seat, it flops over into a heap. Other than that, it is probably one of Chanel's nicest designs.

Okay, I need clarification from diehard Hills fans. I was just informed that Heidi's 21st birthday bag was NOT the Soft and chain but the Modern Chain and she was seen wearing it on several celebrity sites shortly after her birthday. This person insists she is correct but I have never seen Heidi photographed with a MC tote, only the Soft and Chain, GST and Cerf.

I just watched the video (had to go to a different episode from the one that linked above) and it is indeed the Soft and Chain hobo. I can see where it could be confused with the MC as the bag was completely stuffed when she removed it from the box, taking on that square, structured MC shape. However, there is no interwoven leather in the chain strap and no chain on the body of the bag.

This person really had my feathers ruffled insisting she's a true chanelchicc. Obviously she is need of Chanel 101 training here on the forums!
