I haven't seen any new styles in the natural vegetable tanned leather! Last season it was the joelles / roxanne A4 totes, before that we had Mollie. It's my fave leather and it's a bit depressing that there are no new styles in it in the new collection or have i missed something??????????
obviously the icons are still available in NVT but i want something new!:Push:

I noticed that, too, and am not one bit pleased about it. With the exception of my fuchsia Bays, all my bags are Darwin/NVT. I love that leather and was also hoping for at least another colour (rouge noir!) if not a new style.

Weren't they discontinuing NVT? Wasn't that the reason why all the NVT roxy totes, somersets etc in this leather were dirt cheap in the sale?

I'm sure someone said that was the reason, NVT out, Spongy as the replacement.

I could be wrong but I am pretty certain someone said it here on the forum, they were favouring spongy because it was lighter (dare I say probably cheaper to produce lol)

It wouldn't make sense to discontinue it since it's so popular...

It'd be like Apple not selling iPods anymore, or Nintendo to stop making Super Mario games, or like Chanel to stop making the Classic Flap Bags!

Hasn't stopped Mulberry in the past.

Darwin - replaced by NVT

NVT possibly replaced by spongy.

Numerous styles of bags that would fly off the shelf now discontinued.

All in the name of improvement, fashion, and possibly cheaper production.

Well I would not be buying much more if that was the case - and we would all be sitting on gold mines as these bags we have and love would be worth a fortune....

This is tragic....:pout::pout::pout:
