Thanks for posting Ale.
I'm not sure how I feel about the new patent the new patent/gold hardware, it somehow seems a bit too much. I feel like its looking at me.

I personally do not care for the bag in the ad at all.

The patent would be so gorgeous if it didn't have that hardware

I like the blue Postino, its the only one that really stands out to me.

omg leyla its so great to see you back!! ( sorry i had to post it!!) we've missed you!!!

Is it true about the quality of the Givenchy Bag, thinking of getting one for my sister who isnt as quite careful with bags...she's pretty rough in fact...balenciagas are great for my sister , chanels not so great cause she's always dropping the bag on the floor, it gets dirty , wrinkley...

givenchy bags never have been known for being as high quality as other prestige brands....it really isn't worthy of a $2000 pricetag... i'd say it's more on par with marc by marc or coach as far as quality goes. but the nightingale is a great bag to toss around, you don't have to baby it or worry about it at all.

on another note-- a friend of mine recently got back from a trip to asia. she bought a medium "overnight" in ostrich ...it's so nice

^ to each their own ...

i don't think they're worth the money. givenchy's bags don't really make me moan like other brands in that price range do. even prada has much nicer craftsmanship, stitching, leather, details etc.....

Does the Nightingale come in gray or silver? I am thinking of getting a lighter colour but not too light. The ivory one is gorgeous but it looks like it'd get dirty quickly.

I saw the postino bag the other day and I think the nightingale is much better.

i don't think i've seen an authentic grey or silver. but i've seen replicas in grey and silver

i don't think the ivory would be so bad, all you have to do is use a good protectant over the leather (like vectra or apple garde) and it won't get dirty so fast.

I really like the one in post #830. It's kind of grayish-silver I suppose. So it's not authentic? That would blow, it's so pretty.

that one?! girl, i think you need to check your monitor. that's black leather with black snakeskin trim. the only thing greyish-silver there is the hardware. and of course that one's authentic, she paid $2500 for it at nordstroms.

WOW I AM DUMB. The lighting in the first picture made me think it was gray. I think I'll save my money for it first then decide what colour to get it in.
