    i just found out that marc isn't doing the stella for f/w 05 in smooth leather...they're only doing a quilted leather one with gold hardware and chain handles. it retails for $1300 and comes in cream, black, taupe and bordeaux.

    the taupe looks like this (this is also what the chain handle looks like):

    i can't see this variation on the stella doing well...the chain handles make the bag even heavier, and i imagine it would be hard to carry once it's full.

    the venetia comes in quilted leather and smooth leather...both have gold hardware; the smooth comes in brick red, ivory, olive, black and taupe.

    I :heart: the adina. I love the whole drummed leather collection. The price=:shock: :cry: :blink:

    Selma is nice too, but for me, doesnt have that wow, instant love factor that I get from a lot of his other designs.

    I thought the same thing of the price. They seem a bit high compared to the other styles. Maybe his whole fall collection has gone up? :cry:

    What exactly does drummed leather mean? I saw the same bag and touched it and it was hard.....so then I looked on the tag to see what kind of leather they used and it was GOAT. Same as Balenciaga. I know they distress the heck of the B bags, but I was always under the assumption that the leather started out thin, and not hard like that...

    I think it is a mixer or pot or something that they stick the leather and oils in and it does something to the texture, just a guess, I really dont know. :blush: I am a little horrified that is was hard, when some places are claiming it is buttersoft :blink:

    Goats!? ugh, that is just weird. I didnt realize goats were now purses. I am still getting used to deer purses.

    i think you should get the white/beigeish color.

    it's simple and not too depressing but very sophisticated.

    i have one

    aspen i like the adina better than the small selma, but $1400 is way expensive for that bag...

    I just got the MJ quilted satchel in black (shown in post #62 and the bottom photo of #64). I love it! The lining is a beautiful wine suede, and I like the option of taking off the metal chain and having a nice hand-carried satchel, or using the chain, which makes it look more edgy.

    I'm not sure about the quilted Stella, though. I guess I may be biased, as I am a huge fan of the Stella and have both the original brass buckled version in plum and a "new Stella" with the brushed nickle pushlocks in black. The quilted version, with the chain handle, just doesn't seem like as good a bag. The reason I love the Stella so much is that it really is an incredible everyday work bag.

    congrats! I was surprised how big that satchel is. did you get the pebbled (or "ice" leather as mj calls it) or the smooth?

    The pebbled leather. I really like it, very vintage-y looking, and yet the brass hardware is very modern looking, so I like that contrast. And yes, the satchel is a pretty large bag!
