the tan color is too "mulberry" like to me.
Uniq, I went to the store on 71st and Madison.

lisa...i think those prices/dimensions are for the chanel 2.55 reissue...

the more i see this bag, the more i love it...
the ostrich one is interesting too...i wonder how much that is...

and i agree with you caffeine...in the camel, it seems almost too plain...
the black too (although i could see the black looking great in a smaller size)...

i'm off to the ysl store in sf today to check it out...
i'll report back of course...

i wasn't able to make it to ysl today, but i'm going for sure tomorrow...

Thanks kimair, but surely over time the canvas would get dirty... white canvas is hard to keep clean and I do not like to baby my bags.

I as well cant wait for your report!

I'm kind of surprised this bag is getting such adoration. To me it is really lackluster, and the name is really cheesy. I don't know, for almost 2k you could do much better in look, materials and longevity...

so i just got back from ysl, and this bag is really gorgeous in person...
they only had the one in the ads with kate (the colorblock one was on reserve for someone, and they had already picked it up)...
they only had the large, which i realized would be too large for me, so i am now on the list for a medium colorblock...

the handle of the blue one is nubuck, so i'd worry about it getting dirty/darkening with use...
the suede is very nice, but it is right on the front panel...
as much as i love it, i would worry more about this getting dirty than the linen/canvas sections...
there is a downtown and the catwalk bag made of the same suede...
i'd be interested in their thoughts regarding care of it...
the color of the linen/canvas is more of a tan and not beige/cream, so i don't think it will show dirt...

like caffeine said, even though the leather is slouchy (more like the rive gauche leather), the bottom is very structured with metal feet and "spines" that are covered in leather...

i also saw pics of the other colors in the lookbook, and they are all leather/suede mixed...
i believe the front panel is suede and the flap and other panels are leather...

edited--i changed the name of the thread to reflect the official ysl name...
