^ That Partage is even more frightening than the ones we found

oh so many different versions know I am getting confused

what type of leather is the happy sac exactly made of?

Aaaaaaand I found a store not that far away (well if you compare it to Paris ), will call them tomorrow and if they have the bag I will go there in the next two days.

^ Well, it's different types depending on the bag. I went by & picked my bag up last night, and also checked out the others so I could report back There is no larger size, just the Partage. However ... there is a leopard print hair calf (or whatever it is) version of the Happy Sac, with black leather trim like my bag across the bottom of the flap. I don't know if it shows in the pix, but my bag has this same trim piece, there's just no contrast. This will make the leopard bag much more durable than it otherwise would be, of course ...

The leather is not quite like anything else I've seen ... it's slightly pebbly (as you can see in the detail shot on the previous page), and has this dusty nubuck finish. That's the best I know how to describe it The embossed leather that I've only seen in pix appears to be very different ...

mytheresa, barneys
^ Thanks, Aby. Unfortunately I'm always really terrible about pictures ...

Thought I'd post a couple tidbits of information ...
  • mytheresa calls this the Happy Partage Bag. Did Barney's make up Happy Sac (taste, luxury, humor)??
  • Attached pic is the leopard ponyskin the Happy Sac comes in. (The bag shown is the Drape Frame Bag.)
  • The embossed leather is goatskin.

Oh, you got it? You have to post pics now - no excuses!!!! :p
I hope you will have lots of fun with it!


I just called the store I mentioned and they are sold out of Lanvin and YSL bags (that I wanted to take a look at, too). They didn't know what bags I was talking about nor when they will have new ones in stock (they told me to just call them everyday and ask ). Oh how I love the customer service in my country .


The leopard bag is adorable, too!!! I saw the satin version on barneys and wondered why there's none you can actually wear during the day....it's nice to see so many beautiful Lanvin bags popping up!
Now I just have to find a way to see them irl, my biggest fear is that they I can't find them anywhere but Paris and when I go there they are all sold out... and I will not buy one before trying them on.

^ The thing is I don't even know how to operate the camera in my phone

I wonder if there's anyplace with a decent return policy where you could order it ...

I agree that someplace with not a single Lanvin or YSL bag in stock is unlikely to be useful to you ... does our shopping forum offer any clues about where to buy Lanvin in Europe??

The satin clutches are really beautiful. Unfortunately there isn't much call for evening bags in my life ... I guess I need to change my life so I can buy more Lanvin

I have the Small Partage bag in black and I LOVE it. It's a gorgeous bag IMO.
I do like the Happy Sac as well, but it's a bit too small for my needs.
I did however see the embossed Happy you're looking at at the Lanvin boutique and thought it was very pretty although I would've preferred the one fashionista-ta got.

I have 4 Lanvin bags(Original Black Kansas, Original Bordeaux Hero from 04, another small black bag from 04 with that Brass Heavy Chain, and the Small Partage in Black)and they're all SUPERB quality

I will try

Thanks for finding a pic of the leopard version. I'd read about their new website, but haven't been there yet.

Btw, aris posted a mannequin picture with the bag, I think from mytheresa, in the Secret Shopaholics thread a couple pages back.

I dug the tag out of the bag & learned a few things ... Happy Sac is the French name. So the small version is officially the Happy/Partage Sac or Bag, depending on French/English.

Also, it says 100% bull calf, so my version is regular leather, nothing exotic.

ta-ta, I demand pictures!
Something about the simplicity of the bag, and the grograin ribbon and chain, is so appealing and elegant!
