... in Singapore - the prices of the staples pieces in classic colours (Nero, Ebano and Bianco) here will be up by 15% or more wef Monday, May 14, 2007. I dropped by the boutique this afternoon to send in my Limo Veneta for her spa treatment - ok, for cleaning, and the SA told me the price of my med Veneta will be increased to the current price of the large!!! That works out to be US$250 more or a 17% hike! Yikes!!! The larger Veneta would also cost US$250 more (but in terms of percentage is lower due to higher base). Still ush: What I understand is the price increase would only apply immediately to the classics styles and colours but not the current seasonal bags e.g. the Veneta in Quarzo, Magnolia, Old Petra would still be the same price until its sold out. F/W's new seasonal Veneta would then bear the higher prices, and so on for other seasonal colour staples (Cocker, Campana, Ball, Roma, Montaigne etc). I have been meaning to get the medium intrecciato continental wallet in Ebano, so I took this as a sign of now or never - it would cost nearly US$100 more after Monday (ok, it's just an excuse). Thus, it came home with me together with a little something else which I shall post later.
