However, I am aware that in time it'll inevitably get some wear and tear that hopefully should just add to its charm!
Do you think Harrod's still has the other brown Kansas? If it is a local call for you, would you mind calling them to find out for me? If so, ask them to hold it and PM me with the phone number? I SO want that bag! (P.S. If it's too much trouble for you - don't worry about it - I know I'm much too busy alot of the time for anyone elses life but mine and my family's - and I HAVE bought more than a couple of expensive bags recently )

Hi Vintage - the price of the Lanvin bag was quite "reasonable" (for a designer handbag!) - 745 GBP in Harrods.

Janyoung99 - I am afraid I am no longer in the UK but in France. The main store number from outside the UK is +44 207 730 1234 the lanvin bags are located in one of the "Rooms of Luxury" on the ground floor. I bought my bag late Wednesday and they still had the other one left then so there's a chance it might still be there.

For anyone looking, there's a brown kansas on ebay from a reputable seller (she used to be part of dude's Balenciaga forum, and other tfs'ers have made authentic purchases with her): 5432546749.

^ Its funny, I wonder how that ebay seller knew that Lanvin is an "it" bag? I think she must be a lurker or a member of this forum for her to know..theres def no coverage of this bag in the magazines I've read.. This is the only place where I've seen this bag discussed.

Also, im confused that she used the pic of AShley Olsen thats carrying a black bag that looks a lot like this Lanvin bag...but is it the same bag

I dont think I would buy from her if I were to get the bag..I dont like how shes put it up for 899!!

It's a nice brown... I really like it... if I hadn't found my black then I would definitely considered this brown.

I'm not sure if Ashley's bag is the same but they do look pretty similar when carried.

well with ebay and paypal fees, she might make 50, 60 pounds... those fees are awful the stores I called too, had different prices, not by much, but they don't seem to be consistent....

I agree as well ebay fees are outrageous! When I sold a couple of my designer bags online, they take a whopping sum of money.

I was at the boutique yesterday and was offered the (supposedly) very first European batch of the PYTHON Kansas bag in brown.

Saw it, loved it, bought it!:p
