I just talked to the manager at the boutique in Dallas I shop at...they are getting all the bags as seen on the runway. I was asking him about the price and he said yes they are expensive but the leather is the best leather he has ever seen. Its made really big and the 2150 bag is gigantic...he said the green 1800 bag is the best....so I will see it when it comes in!
Did the manager say WHEN the bags are due to arrive? (and which boutiques/stores will be carrying the bags?) TIA!
The Persephone is on my "Should I or shouldn't I" bag list for Fall.
I love the size and the design though I agree with Taitai that it would be fantastic if the hardware was less "bling", based on what I've seen from the photos.
However, $2150 is a little pricey for it..given that I have busted my bag budget for like this lifetime and the next.
Hi Princess, my friend in NY has been shown a sample. She said the bag is really super soft, the leather is kind of delicate though, the type that looks like it could get scratched easily but really extremely buttery soft. But she also said it's more yellow gold in person than in the pictures! I was hoping it would be toned down in person.
Derek Lam is consistantly overpriced. I am constantly shocked at how much he is charging considering he is new on the scene. I think to survive he either needs to find some new suppliers or re-evaluate because I think it's a bit ridiculous. The bags are gorg. though
I love the bags too but definitely agree about the price....
