Wow. Steep. I wish they will reduce it, at least till everyone is convinced of its quality.

i wish i could see one of these bags in person before pre-ordering!
i love the persephone but it seems a bit oversized for me. the violet in oxblood would be perfect!!

For those interested in the clutch, it seems it is wider than appears in pictures.

It is about 11 inches wide and 10 inches in height.

Much too big for an evening clutch I think. So I'm happy to give this a miss.

just a piece of advice for those who dont know already:

the bags are the heaviest on the market right now.
i carried the bag on 2 occasions in his showroom. once in february where the gold part were not hollowed out yet (samples) and it was so heavy that they warned me.
i carried it once more at the NY showroom once it was hollowed out and it was still soo soo extremely heavy that i will admire anyone who will still buy it once they find out for themselves.
i hope they sales people are informing whoevber is in the process of purchasing one

Leyla,
Thank you for the heads up! I may pass on the bag then. I absolutely hate heavy bags.

thanks for letting us know! I am not calling back helen yi. They are getting the most of the bags and want us to pay now....I understand having a credit card down but putting a deposit...I mean its not a house, a car, or an apt.

So I am just not going to call back.

A local boutique has me down and guaranteed for the hildegaurd in bottle green and the violet in oxblood.

I have been told by many many many ppl that the persa bag is HUGE gigantic.....and very dramatic. like bigger looking that an oversized muse.

so...I do love big bags....but to me that is limiting.

BUT however, that is the bag everyone wants.

Bigger than an oversized Muse is totally limiting. I can't imagine it being fun to carry around particularly when loaded up. It would be akin to toting a suitcase everywhere each day.

Hildegaurd sounds like a much better size. I'm excited to see these IRL.

yeah its like an overnigher. at least it goes over the shoulder.

its the bag everyone wants...the persa.

I think hilde is nicer. I went form I want one to no...to if its amazing back to know. Just don't want to drop 1800 bucks for a hildeguard new designer bag.

if it were 1300-1500 I would buy it in a heartbeat...but after tax the bag would cost me 2k forget it.

helen yi just called me and left a voicemail. they got the bags in.

they also take returns if you have it shipped out of town.

so if you want call ASAP they have the best selection 773-325-3905

I was on the list for 2 persa bags...so if they won't let you have them tell me...and I will tell them not to hold them.

so let the calling begin!

hi everyone! this is my first TFF post in months! i am going to finally stop being lazy and post some info. intermix called me today - they just received the clutches in. i have the black one on its way to me and will report about the leather quality, bag heaviness, etc when i receive it by the middle of next week. intermix has a 10 day full refund return policy so i though i might give this clutch a try. i am very excited!

edit: intermix received both black and burgundy (oxblood) colors in the clutch. if anyone is interested please PM me and i will tell you which intermix has the bags and provide you their phone number. clutch is $990.

I agree, the Gucci is much better. why would they do something Gucci did 2 years ago?
