I visited Saks BH yesterday to check out the upcoming season. There are a few new "novelty" lines, such as Pocket in the City, 8 Knot, and Patchwork, which had to have been created in a burst of drug-induced inspiration...puffy silver and gold metallic patches without any of Chanel's trademark refined elegance IMHO. The Sharpey line is adorable, I think Claudia (?) had first posted about it a couple weeks ago. Saks didn't buy the tote that I wanted though. Also saw the bag that I personally can't wait to see, the fabric reissue which is stitched to simulate crocodile, appropriately called Coco Croco. Saks will have it in black, turquoise, and purple...the $2995 price is a little off-putting, especially for a fabric bag. Will definitely need to see it IRL before surrendering the good old Saks charge! That fringe-y clutch/handheld thing is also exorbitantly priced, I believe it was something like $5995 but please don't hold me to that. Lady braid's coming back too! I only recall seeing black and brown though. There's already a long waitlist for a black vinyl bag similar to the original Coco Cabas but it has a flap onto which the CC is stitched. I'm sorry, the name of the bag eludes me but I do remember thinking that its $1895 price tag was quite steep for vinyl! ush: Lots of costume jewelry, but I didn't spend much time looking. There will be a Camellia line of small leather goods, lambskin stamped with a lovely Camellia pattern, including a CC holder for $250 (SO getting that!) a wallet for $615 and a larger checkbook/agenda-looking thing for around $950 or $995. Since I'm more of a classic Chanel type of girl, I put myself on the waitlist for: Dark silver classic flap $2495 White AND red reissue $2375...I think that's the price Black AND purple Coco Croco $2995 (ouch!) I think there were a few more, but obviously can't have been too amazing if I can't remember Not very many colors, lots of black and brown. I'm incredibly excited about seeing the dark silver classic flap though. Couldn't tell if the red reissue was going to be similar to the bordeaux, but it definitely wasn't a bright red. Unfortunately the only purple I saw was for the Coco Croco... Shoes were cute! A couple choices of flats for Jenn to wear when she walks to work. Of course, this is only for the Saks BH location, scheduled to arrive from May through June. Who knows what delightful goodies NM and Nordstrom and the boutiques will carry!!
