After our post Monday on Chanel’s new refurbishment and refinishing policy for its bags, readers had a lot of comments, concerns and questions. Chanel reached out to us to provide an official statement from a company spokesperson, as well as to clarify what the new policy means for customers.
A little over a year ago, Vlad and I decided to move back to Florida, but we still travel to NYC often–the rest of our team is in NYC, as is much of our work. Growing up in Florida meant mostly one season all year long, with a burst of gloriously cool days during the winter that are just perfection.
Update 10.28.15: Chanel reached out with a statement from a company spokesperson that we added at the end of the article to clarify the policy change.
Last year we had quite a few major Chanel rumors swirling around the PurseForum, and the biggest were about a price increase (which happened) and the Chanel Grand Shopping Tote’s possible discontinuation (more on this soon).
This past week on PurseBlog Picks, we’ve been all about black and white. From a striped leather jacket from Saint Laurent to a black and white vintage Chanel bag, stripes are on our minds. We also found a stunning pair of forest green suede boots from Givenchy. If forest green is your thing, there’s also a peek at a great Vince bag that is only $265. With fall upon us, our Picks Page is showcasing the best items to get you ready for the cooler months ahead, so be sure to check back daily.
When you think of fashion brands making waves at the moment, Gucci immediately comes to mind, and not just for me. Creative director Alessandro Michele managed to build excitement quickly for his new interpretations of Gucci’s many traditions and icons, and only a handful of seasons after his appointment, Michele’s designs have become must-haves for fashion insiders.
