Lanvin Happy Sac, Partage Sac, and Amalia
I am interested in how the quality is, too...(strange that there is so little info about such an "old" brand ).. I have heard that all the bags are handmade and top quality from a few people... I hope I can go to Lanvin next time I'm in Paris to see the quality with my own eyes...

I love this one, I will consider buying it instead of a chanel 2.55

^ As you saw, that is the same bag I'm looking at, but without the texture You have excellent taste :p

I've seen it in person & everything looks good ... the chain is particularly beautiful. (I suppose you want a chain bag from a designer who's also well known for costume jewelry, which would be either of the ones you mention ) The only thing that looked like a potential weak spot to me was the lining ... not that it looked bad, it just looked like the weak point of the bag, the thing that would go first if anything did. I suppose it could also be repaired ... and I don't really care about the logo fabric inside. The zipper was heavy duty & slightly difficult to operate ... probably just needs to be broken in a bit. Bear in mind that this bag is on the small side ... all the major items I carry fit inside without a problem, but I would definitely have to watch it, no cramming in extras & certainly no water bottle

I guess I should say what those are ... a smallish wallet, a largeish lipstick case, makeup bag, phone, keys, pillbox.

Another little disadvantage is there are absolutely no inside compartments. The bag I have now has 3, and they work perfectly for me ...

However, the bag is very beautiful, and I am very picky ... what's a girl to do

I've read (from bagsnob blog, I think) that older Lanvin bags had problems with the hardware but the newer ones are fine.

I really like the version you posted, I didn't know there was any other than the textured one. I can't wait to see it irl now that you are talking about it!

(Secretly I hope it will go on sale because the brand is unknown by so many people although I would buy it at full price.)

I KNOW! Great minds think alike! Just kidding =)

Great point you are making here! I will write that down for future use

The only thing that looked like a potential weak spot to me was the lining ... not that it looked bad, it just looked like the weak point of the bag, the thing that would go first if anything did. I suppose it could also be repaired ... and I don't really care about the logo fabric inside. The zipper was heavy duty & slightly difficult to operate ... probably just needs to be broken in a bit.

Did you see interior pics anywhere online? Would love to see the lining etc...
Actually, that sounds good. I think better the lining than the hardware or leather!



Bear in mind that this bag is on the small side ... all the major items I carry fit inside without a problem, but I would definitely have to watch it, no cramming in extras & certainly no water bottle

Hm, yes, definately not a bag you want to overstuff (not that I am talking about myself here noo, I haven't broke a zillion sport backpacks because of overstuffing ). Would also give the bag a weird shape I guess.

But I think it is perfect for the days you want to carry only a few items with you and it can be used as an everyday and evening bag!




However, the bag is very beautiful, and I am very picky ... what's a girl to do

She has to BUY IT!

m&c, I haven't seen any interior pix online. As best I recall it was black on black, LANVIN LANVIN LANVIN, and the familiar Lanvin silhouette.

It actually is really not even possible to overstuff this bag (and still close it). The leather is quite substantial ...

Here are a couple closeups of the leather & the chain ... the leather has a bit of a dusty look to it, and the chain is antiqued.

i have 2 lanvin bags, and the quality is great...
i have a heroine bag (black leather) and the new shopper...
the heroine bag has a convertible handle like the chanel quilted, but it does hurt if you have too much in the bag...i like the new shopper because of the leather shoulder protectors...

this bag is really cool...is it in stores now?

This Lanvin is the femme version of the YSL besace flap which is the lesbian sister.

^ Yes, I don't like the Partage either ... reminds me of Marc Jacobs & not in a good way

I don't think the Hurrah is a larger version of the Happy ... I really thought I saw a larger version of the Happy Sac in store, I'll have to look again when I go back. I haven't seen it online I don't think ...

Btw, other colors I've seen the Happy Sac in are the black, a lighter brown, the light tan you posted, and olive.
