hi everyone !

i just bought the black grainy mini luggage with silver hardware (!!) from barneys today... and after looking at it closely at home, the edge coat (sealant) color looks BROWN to me.... making me wonder if i am just crazy or is it true that celine did use brown edge coat to seal grainy black bags with ?!

can fellow celine experts shed some light on this? thx !!!!!

here it is... not a happy camper at the moment ... :town:

that certainly looks brown. i don't remember seeing it brown on the shelves but it looks like a philo characteristic touch. she isn't one to shy from contrasting colours and materials (gold and silver hardware on one bag)!

but if it really bothers you, you should have it exchanged. all the best!

Here it is again in daylight... Wondering If the off colored sealant was also the case for the previous versions in black ? Just wanted to know if this is a normal occurrence and not just for the resort / s12 drummed leather bags...

Thanks !!

I have it too on my black shoulder luggage with drummed leather.

I kind of like it though! It gives a little something something extra to it :smile:

As long as its not too noticable I think it adds a nice depth to the black. I would assume its intentional.

Yes, it is definitely brown; however, I must say that I like it. It really gives the bag a little extra something! If you do not like it, I'd return it... But honestly I think it looks great. :tup:
