I think the patent leather is gorgeous and definately year round bag, unless you live in a very hot climate. I think the distressed patent wears better and is less prone to scratches than the regular patent.

Mine is white, so definitely summer only. I've carried it a few times, & no problems, but I'm very careful because of dye transfer. I wouldn't wear it with jeans, or a top that I thought would bleed onto it. Here are some pics. It is the Evening Star Jumbo.

I have a black patent jumbo, a white patent E/W, and a white patent M/L flap. Love them all! Since I have both black and white ones, I think I've got my year covered ;)
Black ones are pretty carefree, the white ones though need more attention (e.g. color transfers from clothing, even sun blocks can make the leather yellow :sweatdrop:

I have the navy patent from ss08. It is by far my favorite bag in my collection, I can't get over the beautiful color and sheen. There have been no issues with humidity or fingerprints. Definitely a year round bag.

I absolutely LOVE Chanel patent! :love: :love: I have a navy patent Jumbo flap, navy patent E/W, rose patent small classic flap, black patent medium classic flap, Bordeaux goatskin patent Jumbo flap, and a red diamond shine flap (patented caviar). Haha, wow, that's a lot of patent! :nuts: I think patent is timeless and so chic, you really can't go wrong! :heart:

I have two black patent chanels and love them! I think they are def. all year round. I have black patent sandals to match them in the summer..

I saw the classic black patent one in the shop window of the Chanel boutique in Germany (Dusseldorf) a couple of months back, so they were out already I assume, I would call your local boutique about it (they can also have it shipped from other places in europe)
