Thanks. It does help. I think I would rather get the Kansas. YOu are very lucky to have gotten one. It is a beautiful bag. Everytime I look at your photos I want one more and more. It is a perfect classic style but with a little edge.

^thanks, socal actually, wanted the black color...hopefully, the waiting lists won't get as ridiculous as fendi, and chloe!

i regret not buying that time i had called...the sa put me on a wait list and then called me right back saying she located one for me...i thought she was trying to over hype the bag by making them seem "hard to get" and then decided to call me so that she could get the commission...it seemed so easy to get i thought they were desperate to get rid of the bag...my mistake

More novice questions regarding the Lanvin Kansas bag. How do you know who else sells lanvin besides Barney's? They don't seem to have an accessible web site and I can't find a corporate listing to call and inquire.
Any suggestions?

I sent an email to Lanvin yesterday. I hope my french was ok. I have not spoken or wrote in French in years. If i ever hear back from Lanvin I will let you guys know. Hopefully they can give us a list of stores that order from them here in the states.

hc1871 thank you in advance. I do not speak French and could not contact Lanvin directly. I can't believe there isn't an easier way to get this info. Hopefully, they will respond to your email and the mystery of who exactly carries Lanvin will be solved. Thanks again for your effort

hmm.... that's weird. I just checked my receipt to make sure and I paid $1600 for the Kansas (small black) from Barney's so I thought the Kentucky would be more since it's a bigger bag. Maybe someone else can verify.

Yep, there's a brown Kentucky at Barneys in Seattle for 1700.

The leather is amazing but I decided against it b/c I have a wild child who I fear will tear off the chain and not to mention, help me scrape up the exterior of my bag. I swear I am raising a monkey. Boys!!

I like that lanvin bags are kind of "not yet" mainstream popular and it's nice that they're making them in only a few pieces (at least for now). They are definitely not as easy to find as the balenciagas or chloes so when the SAs say the wait list is long I tend to believe them.
