I don't know what there is to roll eyes about ETRO, lOl.

For me, 45k is quite an amount. It's the money I spend for one year of college, and I'm also quite sure that with that money, I could....

-fly to a crocodile farm.

-pick a huge one (okay, maybe just a big one).

-get the leather, have it tanned & dyed.

-bring it to a top notch leather worker and have a huge bag with loads of accesoires done in that croc leather. Maybe even a pair of shoes (getting a pair of shoes custom made shouldn't cost so much, as the material is already provided)

SO.... under such circumstances, 45k is a lotta money.

Or think about it that way: You could buy everything that is in that gorgeous Vuitton Men Summer 07 catalogue.

I ain't tellin' ya'll nothing anymore!!

Ya, 45k is alot of money but when I think about other things, it's really not that bad...That's funny though, how you broke down 45k, I remember breaking down 10k for the Birkin and saying how I can fly first class to Paris, shop, and stay at George V for less!

We were just a bit shocked, lol. C'est tout.

I can only think of Haute Couture pieces which can cost more. PAP rarely reaches that line. (well, as long as the piece isn't made out of Dodo leather... or something like it.)

Edit: In case you really want the bag and the NYC shops ain't getting them anymore, I could check for you in the Viennese Chanel shop. Except when a group of crazy russians/chinese/japanese people snatched them already, I believe that the waitlist here could still be empty.

Holy congrats Diorling! 45k is a lot but if you can afford it...

I saw the black quilted one in a magazine the other day and loved it, but the bad reviews and 1600$ price tag are a tad bit offputting.

Chanel is hit or miss lately. This is a definite miss.

My SA showed me this collection yesterday and I was a little disappointed that it wasnt as glossy as in the pics, looked kind of dull actually. For $28,000 I'd rather have a 35cm croc birkin lol.

Can you insure a bag? Because I would - something that expensive being carried around should be for protection, you know, against jealous raving mad fashionista ninjas.
