Not to be a wet blanket, but I find the design of the edith a little uninspiring, it'll make a very sensible work bag...and I love the tan and the appearance of the crinkly leather, but it still strikes me as a quasi Balenciaga work..
Same sentiments. I was waiting so eagerly for pictures of the Edith etc since Nov05 thinking perhaps I should give the paddy a pass. I was concerned that the paddy would be so 'last season'. But when I saw the pictures, I was disappointed. So I went back to considering the paddy once more. (I was deciding between owning a Tod or a Chloe, and a Tod is way too severe looking for me these days)

I LOVED the Paddington and Sliverado as soon as I saw them, however the Edith kind of looks like a Balenciaga. So like Chiangsi1980 my wallet to, will breathe a sign of relief....

wow just came back from a day of shopping and stopped by the chloe boutique here in paris. i am pleasantly surprised by the edith! i 'tried it on' in a brown crocodile... and it was actually very nice in the medium size! i put myself down for it in chocolat (which will be a bit darker than the old chocolat) and black... i can def see it as a small travel carryon for me.

Hi there, I am totally new to Chloe and am in with the Edith. Where can I get on a waiting list??? Please don't tell me Neimans (I have been on the list there for several bags and never ONCE got a call, this after even calling all the time to follow up).

Please let me know, somebody, I just have to have this bag.

TIA!!!

^why don't you try london or paris? the salesperson said she'd call me when they get them in (which they think will be in about a month)... she made no mention of a waiting list.

Bergdorf Goodman is maintaining a waiting list for the Edith and many other pieces from the Chloe S/S 06 collection :

yeah, i like the edith but so far not crazy about it, not that i wouldn't mind owning one! :p i have the feeling its one of those bags that are so much more amazing irl. and the style.com photos are so beautiful..i hope we can find out more about the colors soon.

the bow clutch is gorgeous!!! i wish they lightened up on the chain though.. i wonder how much it is.. reason tells me 800, but i have the feeling it'll be over a thou..

mammab - you can waitlist at the chloe boutique or pre-order from online shops

No waiting list? Alas, I think I am scarred from Balenciaga.....

Thanks meowmix -- I actually figured out to get on Chloes website (how brilliant of me) and click on their boutiques. I'm going to call NYC as soon as hubby leaves (don't want him hearing me call about yet, another bag).

I'm completely awestruck with this bag. It's so beautiful and I love that raw stitching and the slouchiness of it all.

Does anyone know the dimensions of the small and the large and are they both called Edith or is the larger one called something else??
