I have moved from when I first saw these back when that I wanted them...to maybe.....to no no no....and to nice....to no no no after I got my birkin and now I am like I really should get one.

as long as the gold zippers and the ram thing isn't nuts and the leather is amazing...and the fit over the shoulders is nice....thne I think I might have to

I'm just afraid that they are going to be really scarce. LVR is already sold out of the green and black in the Violet. Do we know who else will have them?

Unusual bag.
Expensive Price.
High demand.
Low Supply.


Looks like we've got the beginings of a Paddington-esque situation on our hands. Though, I can't help but think this was their plan all along...

no I doubt it. I don't think ppl will go as crazy about it. Derek Lam, made these available for anyone to order from them and it was about the managers and buyers of certain stores ordering them or not.

Oh no, I agree with you. I just like to pretend there is some sort of secret Handbag Mafia out there plotting out the supply and demand of hot new bags.

well I think designers used to keep things exclusive like Fendi, Chloe, Balenciaga but then they all got greedy and shoved styles out the door. I mean they need someone new in marketing. The harder to get and the lower the supply creates more buzz and demand. Fendi b bags are just sitting around!

Hermes is the only house of design that is able to keep it exclusive over and over again.

but for Derek Lam. Neiman Marcus didn't even order the bags. Bergdorf didn't either.

Barneys did but they do like to order alot of NY designers and do things differently and be a little more edgy.

there is alot of buzz around these. I think there have been like 2 features in magazines? At least one I know for sure.

I think the new Elle comes out today...and W. I hope I can get it.

I am getting more and more tempted on these bags!

the double zipper hobo looks really huge!! looks like it would be a really nice throw everything in it day bag.

I am on the list for the violet bag...and I am wondering how I would like the chains....and how it would look on the shoulder, on the arm,etc.

I am very excited.

EDIT I know what is hildeguard.....is that the big big double zipper or the single?

I think the double zipper is the persephone

if we number the pics like this
1 2
3 4

1 is the violet
2 is the persephone
3 is the hildeguarde
4 is the persaphone

so the persaphone is a huge bag 2150. I think its going to be very big. great day back to haul around!

sorry you're right, it is the violet which is quite easy to tell due to the handle Sometimes the violet looks quite small and other times, much larger. I'll have to check them in person as I'm sure selfridges will have some lying around.

I think its a medium/large bag if it had a size tag on it.

I think of course the clutch is the smallest then the hildeguard then violet then pers.
