Just got back from my SAKS store.
My SA Donna told me that her store has pulled the new modern chain bags OFF the shelves..DUE to a DEFECT.The plastic chain links are all falling apart@@!

What is up this year with CHANEL and the poor quality??!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YIKES!!!!!!

She pulled a bag out and showed me too..it was AWFUL!!!!the links just disconnect!!

I think a pfer posted this happened to her...... well, I guess we should be happy they're not going to sell them. What is the retail on this bag again? Almost 3K?

I think sometimes creative people forget to be realistic. Cute design, not so cute design for real life!

I went to the Nordstrom - topanga in Woodland Hills and in front of the S/A the links just fell apart!:tdown::tdown:

She tried to down play it like it was no big deal and still tried to get me to buy the bag!
I couldn't believe it!:mad:
You know if it was her own money she wouldn't have reacted that way :sad:

Wow, I'm glad I wasn't really wowed by the new design to begin with. If I were to ever get a MC tote, it would definitely be the older style with metal chain handles. :yes: Seems much more durable.

I never like to be the one to invest in prototypes - new leather, chains, etc. - until they've been tested to be long-lasting and durable.
That's how I feel about cars... we shouldn't have to worry about a new style of bag. Shame on you, Chanel.

By the way, Jill, I thought your title referred to the "New Modern Chain" from this fall, the one with the glazed leather. I was seriously worried for a minute.
