Ohh so the price is confirmed now! $230 is too much for a pair of tights that I will ruin in a day.

Hrm. I wonder what the material is. If it's more like a thick, knit legging-ish type thing, I might invest in them.

I'd like to know the material, too - at $230, it must come equipped with supernatural powers or something.

the material is probably just normal nylon hose material, but in a high denier so it's opaque. chanel's been doing hosiery for a long time, and that's what the prices normally always are ($200-300)

I am going to play with a bunch of my tights to see if I can recreate this look with the crisp, straight line. Hrm.

Just rang the Manchester store , so I'm guessing other boutiques/concessions haven't got their info yet either. The sales person on the phone said they thought they would probably be around 100.

With added lycra sheen too.

I think I'll go with the lace look now..it's easier to recreate.

Thanks! If they actually went ahead and did a replica, I would love you forever! I want these tights so badly, but I ladder every pair of tights with in a weeks, so no way could I afford the originals

Apeture Manchester has a Chanel Suddenly Manchester uni sounds very appealing

Yeah it's in Selfridges. I love watching cute old ladies go there and spend money. The first time I went I got geekily excited because they had aw07 turquoise pieces in.

Anyway Manchester as a city is great especially for students.
