btw, do you like the green and pale blush better than your blue?

Don't get me wrong I really adore the style, but I don't think I will buy anymore Givenchy bags when they are obviously not made to last! I'm thinking of just getting a Chanel classic flap next.
yeah givenchy bags aren't made well at all. u should see brians , the zipper on his blck patent maxi is completely copper now...the gunmetal coating has completely rubbed off. and he's complained of loose stitches too.

but yeh givenchy are made really cheaply......and, don't make me say it out loud.....in c_____ (but most "luxury" is anyway)

also why do you think that the new ones don't have the zipper? when a bag first comes out the company doesn't mind, but later on they always find a way to cut costs and make things even cheaper to produce than they already are.....that zipper & extra leather was costing too much.

You know... it's like I love the brand and what it represents and I'm willing to support them.. and as Givenchy had not established themselves as a handbag making company I thought that the quality of the bag would be good, I mean you want the costumer to come back, right?? And you only get one chance for making a first impression.

I have not used the bag for the last months... I think the leather need some conditioning as well, has anyone that owns the original Nightingale in leather put anything on it?

With that said, I would still like a medium sized one.. in patent maybe.. damn it.. I just love the shape.

Pucci, yes I meant the Cavier one.
a little OT to talk about Chanel bags here but I think that there price is insane nowadays. Also my girlfriend's bag chain was broken only a few days after she bought it. When you pay $2,500 on a bag you don't expect that
