I agree! I think it was the 2005 Kansas with gold hardware. The Kansas has just gone downhill since then.

Someone needs to have a word with Mr Elbaz stat!

I love the original kansas ...why didn't they stick to that style? All the newer styles just don't measure up

I remember seeing this IRL, it's so gorgeous, but my heart was set on getting the leather version at that time.
I'll love to get this...if only I didn't live in CA
C'mon Luxx, you know you want this...it's not "another" black bag...it's a black python bag.

Oooooh...you make a compelling point

I have to see where I am in a few days though. I ADORE it but I have to wait and see. I was going to get a Classic flap or this Mulberry I keep going back and forth on but oh this is just so divine...

And black is a classic color...goes with everything...

Oooh, so tempting! I always wanted the original ... if it was regular leather, I'd grab it in a heart beat.

Wow! Love that black python! It's a good price too if it really is in brand new condition and well stored!

HI all,
any opinions on the Kentucky in black with brown straps and handles? I just bought it sight unseen at Barneys on sale for $895. I wish it was all black but I am thinking I will like the brown handles.

I was thinking of getting the Prunelle clutch (whcih I saw and LOVE!)but then I was thinking I would not be using it enough because it is small and I carry a lot of stuff. Also I am kinda poor right now so spending $1300 is a little out of my budget.

Also I was looking at the Niger Sac but not sure I like how structured it is.

Can you please let me know if you think I made the right choice? Or should I have gotten my clutch?
TIA

Hi,

I have the Kansas Bag and I love it. I hate buying leather bags that scuff easily. I've had mine for 6 months and there aren't any scratches or water marks from carrying it in the rain (not my decision!).

It's also not as heavy as you'd think. I also love the soft, neutral lining! I was doing a search for shoes earlier and came across an online store that has my bag on sale!! The Niger bag is also on sale.

Question about Lanvin bags in general ... how's the quality? I haven't seen any comments about that here, which I imagine means it's good, but I wanted to ask

I have an original lanvin kansas bag (that my cat pooped on... twice) but I've seen more in person and I dont have any issues with the quality. The leather is all really soft but has held up nicley. The only thing that doesnt look new on my bag is the paint on the edges of the handles. Which one are of thinking of getting?
