I just picked up the new fall 06 black luxury line tote yesterday from boutique in SF....It has the sheen in it,but not that flashy. The bag is big but I love it. especially there is a zip closure on the top. Inside is black leather lining. I love love the handle which feels very nice and durable. The leather is definitely the best I have ever seen,durable and scrach resistance. I think it is the ultimate Chanel bag for me cause it is roomy too!
