Chanel - Spring 2004 Cassette Tote
For anyone who has been dying for this stupid thing as much as I have (although I am sure that no one could ever possibly have loved/wanted/desired/yearned for/etc etc. it more than I) .... I have all the info and more!

A few days after x-mas, I called Chanel up and got a price quote, and all the info, on this baby.... after over a month of bugging and bugging.

Well, people, this thing is going to cost $1,450.00, which is completely ludicrious IMO (for a piece of plastic with a chain wrist strap, anyhow)! I was pretty shocked.

It is available in black, and clear and should hit stores by the end of January.

Here are some pictures, for those of you who don't know about this gorgeous (+ ludicrously priced) beauty....

...Maybe one day she will be mine....

Well, Chanel told me that only the actual freestanding CC boutiques here in Texas (the ones in Dallas and Houston) had ordered them in "limited quantities," which basically means about 2 of them per store. They offered to get me on a reserve list, but honestly I cannot possibly ever justify paying such a steep price for something so impractical. It is damned cute though! So sad that the Chanel boutique in the Saks here won't be getting it in, though.

PS: I liked the earring, too. What's the price on it?

i wrote the info somewhere in a notebook, i'll have to look for it and get back to you.....

i think it will be 600 or something..... my memory is bit fuzzy, but i will post it when i come across it. i forgot to ask the price on the lp clutch so i have to call back. a bit strange that these accessories are so high considering the cruise/resort collection accessories werent that much. some braclets were about 450 and cute earings were about 250 !! a charm belt was about 800 ( if i remmber) and these items are practcly triple that

isnt the cassete about 5x 3 inches or something????

I totally agree.
My reasoning behind this is because perhaps Chanel doesn't want just anyone to have them. You know?

600 is quite a bit for that little microcassette earring. But it is adorable!

Also, I can only IMAGINE the price of the LP tote. It's beaded! My guess is about $2-3,000

Also, yes, the cassette tote is around 5x3". Look at the photos! I used those so you could see the proportions. Not much bigger than a female hand.

I can't believe that! And now I'm afraid that the LP clutch will be out of my price range!

And the earring for $600! How insane! Chanel really needs to get a grip. I don't see how they can justify $1500 for a cheap block of plastic when a beautiful quilted caviar leather 2.55 bag is about the same. It's not like some huge technological advancement is required to make the bag. It's just a question of bolting a couple screws through some plexiglass.

More than likely in the $3,000 range. Maybe more, since it takes more work as it has that beading all over it.

I'll call Chanel tomorrow and let you all know!!

In fact, I'll get price quotes on all of it.
