I just received my Chataigne Club bag. I hope you all don't mind the large pics. I forgot to change the size before I put em up on Photo Bucket. I took pics of every angle and inside etc. that I could think of. I also put it up against a day bag so you can see this new style compared to a day bag. I think the bag though actually is and was meant to be a cross between the City and the Day styles.

The color of the bag is beautiful and a rich chocolate bar brown. At first I thought the leather was thicker and different, but then I realized that there is sizing fabric behind the leather so that it has more body to it. It still squishes nicely but will maybe need to be used more to get it real squishy. I like it though. The size and style is really nice. I actually am so glad to have it as another new style and choice from Balenciaga. The strap as you can see on one of the pics, moves easily from side to side so that the strap moves out of your way when you want to get into it. It zips and unzips easy, I love the zipper going both ways (two zips on top) and I really like the back pocket on the outside!

Size: It is exactly a city bag - I laid a city on top and it is a city bag with a little more structure, back outside pocket, one shoulder strap instead of two handles and shoulder strap, and more room inside. It is a beautiful style and bag and I am keeping it!!

First of all congratulations! Second thank you for all the photos! I can really get a feel for the club now! I really love it - even more so than the day bag. I never liked how loooong the day shape was on me. I like how this is more of a square or sideways rectangle.

Bal finally got it right with a new style!

Nice! Can I be nosey and ask the price and where she came from?
Muggles:
I bought it from Nordstrom and it sells for $1145.

Thanks everyone! Bal got it right and we should be very thrilled with such a great new color! I can't believe it is finally here. I have been waiting for this style bag for months and months.......:tender::sweatdrop:

Wow! Thanks for the great photos. It's a stunner. Seems to have the look and drape of the Day with a couple of advantages. I've been wondering how this bag would carry, and the length of the handle etc.,

It looks as if the space below the handle is a bit greater than the Day?? Less boob squissage, and easier access! :cloud9:
