well, i was told carmen kass got the new crackled XL patent as a gift from givenchy and used it during paris shows. she has also been photograped with XL white one. the traina sisters both have the xl black and were seen at ny shows together with the same bag.

brian - thanks so much for those pics! marron is actually kind of appealing to me - that rusty red color. as for the new shapes, quel horreur!!

am SUPER sad to hear that the current versions will be phased out. t minus one day until my barneys trip (see washington dc thread haha and how we are sorely lacking one in our area). will report back with givenchy sightings!

I don't know which ones the Olsens have but Carmen's white nightengale and Melanie Huynh's bag don't look like the xl based on the dimension alone...my weekender is smaller than the xl based on the dimension given but it looks bigger on my 6' tall frame than the bags look on the girls...

Ashley's is def. the XL. The medium just does not drape like that at all. It is the same size the Trainas have. Reese Witherspoon has the medium, I can't find a picture of it right now, but it is clearly a much more modestly sized bag.

I think what everyone has to remember about the dimensions is that he bag is actually cut like a square/rectangle and the dimensions are probably taken from the bag in its "flattest" state. One it is worn it kind of concaves onto its self and gets slouchy, so it appears smaller than the technical dimensions.

I don't know if this is news (I sense that it is, because I don't remember seeing this), but LVR has the black medium and maxi nightengales available now...

Thanks for all the info everyone!

Which size do you guys think I should get? The blue patent or black? the blue would be too much in the maxi, right? I wanted the blue patent at first but I love the ostrich feet handles on the black. I'm so confused, need your help!

^ the blue!!!!!

as for size i'm not sure. the medium IS definitely big enough to carry everything you'd need...and you are petite so i think i'd go with the smaller if i were you...

I really love the ostrich claw leather on the handles though I think that the electric blue bag would look totally cool and unexpected...
