Is it just me? Or dies it look better on the shoulder than it does just sitting there...

When it's just sitting there it looks like a regular old tote with gold C's on it.

Luna - its not just you. To me, it looks like a very basic, very boring, plain black tote with gold cc's. Its too basic for me to consider spending $$$ on. Its amazing how a couple of gold cc's can turn something so basic into something so chic. I admit, the leather is probably top notch - but still.....

On another note - does anyone happen to know the price of the new chanel bag that is box-shaped and quilted? Think its new for this year. Here is a link to a pic of it:

If it is the same bag, the one I'm referring to is fairly big i.e. tote size. Very similar to the Cerf, if not the same size...
Yeap, it's Sydney Australia :p and I think I saw it last week when I went to have a look at the Cerf and the size is a little bit smaller than the Cerf. I think I like the beige one too

I can't see a motorcycle style bag ever being an office bag, I say go for the chanel cerf, or maybe another tote by Chanel?!

I have a Live journal group called coco__chanel where I post alot of the Neiman Marcus catalog ads that come to me. They had a different style tote recently. Just giving you options to think about if you want.

BTW, the Saks in Beachwood, Ohio (don't ask what I was doing there) has it in the dark brown, which is quite pretty. surprisingly, it also has a good supply of tweed 2.55s and the allegedly rare limited edition red 2.55 (with ladybug charms -- cute!)

We all need to be armed with camera phones every time we step into a boutique so we all can share what we found in that store!

the thing that made me think that it's the new one is the color: an orangish tomatoey red (and the fact that it was on display in the front case like the Hope diamond).

What a lovely bag. I saw someone carrying this in SF this weekend. I admired it. Very sophisticated! I'd buy it up if I were you.

Ooooooo...thanks!!!! I am daft to have not just bought it in Paris where I first saw it!!! It is almost impossible to find that bag from where I am...have to be on another madhouse international baghunt...

Btw, thanks heaps for the NM pictures of the alternative totes for consideration which you posted. Lovely, lovely bags!! Saw them in the store...they are actually smaller than they appear in the picture. They are smaller than the Cerf or the quilted tote and may not comfortably fit an A4-size folder or writing pad. But very good, pretty day bag none-the-less..
