I just came from the Trunk Show at Tysons Corner VA NM. It was pretty quiet/empty - no champagne, no hoopla. The bags are beautiful. In particular, the perforated flaps - a lovely modern twist on a classic. The jumbo white performated flap was gorgeous. They also had a royal blue and kelly green - lovely. The SA confirmed that prices for the classic pieces in caviar and lambskin are going up - she said the classic flap medium that is now $1750 will be about $2200 as of Feb 1. She first said that it is because of cost of materials and the falling dollar, but THEN said that "they want to keep the brand exclusive, and the only way to do that is to raise prices on the entry-level pieces."
