I played with the Sunset clutch today in this lovely color

It seems like the perfect going out special night/occasion bag, love the detachable handle and chain, etc. I even loved it in perle better than amarante (no fingerprints).

But I have repeatedly heard that perle is vulnerable to color transfer, AND that it even yellows over time! Ugh.

So my real question is : does anyone know if this is a new permanent style, so I can wait for another light color (framboise!) ?

Or should I get the perle? Perle owners please weigh in...

I vaguely recall news of it coming out in Pomme too, but don't take my word for it :P...if it does I would so :drool:. My Perle roxy hasn't yellowed yet, after 6 months (in 12 outings I think...). I've always said colour transfer isn't a concern for me, cos my habits with my bags don't include setting them on printed materials nor the floor, nor are they constantly in contact with my jeans.

I really don't see the Sunset coming out in any other colors except for ones being introduced in the future :sad: It's a little concerning that they didn't release the new bags in noisette- I hope they're not phasing it out....

I think i heard some thing about Sunset coming out in pomme? But since the Sunset is a permenant line why don't you wait and see what new colours eventually come out for vernis?

I have a perle cles for 2 years and I haven't seen anything wrong with it. I do have to admit though, the corners have very minor red stain because I use it everyday and being tossed around in my bag with red lining. I'm pretty proud of myself that the cles hasn't turned pink yet lol.

In other words, I wouldn't mind getting a perle bag. Afterall I wouldn't be tossing it around like a cles. Especially the sunset... I mean it's really not an everyday bag anyway.

Regarding color change (to yellow)... well true, there're so many people out there who have discolored pieces (pink to orange, baby blue to green)... I am fortunate enough that none of these have happened to me. I have a lavender piece from 4 years ago and I can't find a single discolored spot on it.

Well I have posted this many times but I got the pearl agenda and carried it in my pomme Roxbury but it was pink along the spine in less than 2 weeks so from now on I will stay clear of pearl despite hoe gorgeous it is. :sad:
