hi l, miss chatting with you!!! i saw some pencil sketches of new givenchys for spring 08 which have not hit stores here yet, they were marked large distressed leather maxi and looked like old style with a $2495 price tag... so not this new maxi gold hardware gg crappy version for $1795...i think it is coming in black and ivory. what color did you see?

I was browsing Barney's website the other day, they've stocked a few Wrinkled Patent Nightingales, the green is gorgeous!





and in pink (or is it salmon...?)





Large Shiny Leather Nightingale. Number 1 on my list. Such a beauty!

^ yeah, it's s/s 08 collection. it's on lvr right now for €1158 (without vat)







personally i don't like it , especially the canvas strap and the fact that it's not even removable.

Ooh thanks Ale! The fact that the strap doesn't come off is a definite downgrade but I love love love that color and the accents on it.

I'm so glad that I have my nightingale - I get tons of compliments on it! I can't believe I sold mine and regretted it immediately...thankfully a little *angel* helped me acquire another! It's never going out of my collection...such a classic.

ok, let me give it a try..... i originally had a plain black calf maxi with a light gray interior. the leather was NOT smooshy. ( i did not love the leather, but loved the style!) i sold it and got a distressed black patent maxi. fabulous. it gets smooshy with age, it does not look worn out, people still comment on it. the next batch of plain leather ones , a season after mine, were distressed leather, smooshy when new! my ostrich handle black maxi has the smooshy, distressed leather and a black interior. so, you are not crazy.... btw, not to confuse you, but this season's patent leather is crappy compared to my last year's black patent leather. it reminds me of '06 bal leather , the crispy, thin, yechy kind they had for one season only. i wanted to buy one, and just couldnt justify the price for the lack of quality. that is how i ended up with yet, ANOTHER black maxi 'gale.
