I am sure most of you know this .. but I went to Bloomies, Saks and the TWO Chanel stores in NYC and they had nothing new ... my SA at Bloomies told me that the fall line would not be in until mid August. Well, on Sunday I drove to Short Hills and boy did I find the look book and ALL the new fall (not PRE FALL) bags .. I grabbed a dark brown flap with a croc texture and the stiched chain .... GORGEOUS. The SA there told me that sometimes Neiman and Bergdorfs (same owners) actually get BETTER stuff than even the Chanel boutiques ... I found that kind of hard to believe but who knows? I mean Chanel in HK was MONTHS behind Paris and New York, so maybe New York is not as current either? In any case, Saks and Bloomies very rarely will order or get the more expensive "exclusive bags" ... someone actually picks them. I went to buy a white classic flap with the modern chain and neither store ordered it!! I finally got it at Bergdorfs... Why the disparity? Is it the clientele???
