went to MJ today, the chain pouchette and the mixed chain look ok when you take the chain off and use it as a clutch....but then it's a way too expensive clutch :p

I was speculating that maybe the high price is due to the rarity of kangaroos. Does that sound silly?

Too true! But I was thinking more along the lines of, kangaroos aren't really bred in large numbers in huge feedlots for our use, like cows are. I wonder where they get the 'roos for these bags? I know that Australia and Thailand have huge croc farms that provide the skins for the crocodile goods market, but I've never heard of a kangaroo farm.

I love this line. Love the violet sid. I love the mixed chain pouchette too. Even the flats are cute, if severely overpriced! I don't think you can say they're lanvin-inspired just because they're ballet flats.

Here is a link to info about kangaroos in Australia (they do not have farms, but apparently some species are harvested and closely monitored): http://www.dfat.gov.au/facts/kangaroos.html

Of them all, the chain pouchette is my favorite, but honestly, I have to agree this line looks kind of cheap (I’m so sorry I hope I don’t offend anyone). If I saw these out and about on someone, I think I would never recognize it as a designer bag. I REALLY don't like the chipped paint look. It's SO dated, but I guess that is the point, to look like the '80s.

And boy these bags look like they were made in the 80's, used every day in the 80's, thrown in a bin somewhere with some sand paper through the 90's and early 21st century and then resurrected from the dead after being buried, in it's dust bag of course, in the pet cemetery (or handbag cemetery) for long enough to breathe life back into the bag. I think they may want to kill me too (one of the side effects of being unnaturally resurrected when death was the natural course). *Just joking * They really don't look that bad. They just aren't my thing.

XOXOXOXOXO

wow, i thought these bags were for marc my marc jacobs. the bags are cool, but the price range is completely inappropriate. i would never spend $2000 on this line. should be $300-$700.

Umm Zain that was oddly... fascinating reading. I now know more about kangaroos than I ever did (or wanted?) to know!
