I have spent last few years hunting for a Chanel mini in the shade of red I like. I finally gave up. I wanted the same shade of red as the Gucci marmont (hisbiscus). I ordered the reissue mini in red without seeing it. I was not disappointed. It is a beautiful red . I decided to post this as I scoured over posts in Chanel red and really appreciated those who took time to photo the different shades of Chanel red that they have in their collection. I m posting this in hopes that someone will find this helpful in their decision about whether to get the reissue mini in red (19A) or not. Have fun shopping ! Cheers !
