Did the manager say WHEN the bags are due to arrive? (and which boutiques/stores will be carrying the bags?) TIA!

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.

I personally think it will be one of those bags if you have alot of money and just don't care you will buy it, carry it, put it away.

I think its great but not enough to make me b uy them

I love the bags too but definitely agree about the price....

For the first time, LVR actually produces pictures that are appealing!

I love the first bag with chain handles and the built-in clutch is a really nice touch!
