Designer Purse Deal: Lanvin Woven Straw Ludvine Bag
Everyone has that one (or two, or three, or yes even four) bag(s) that they love to death, that they couldn’t ever imagine any other bag coming close in comparison, or well at least ever chucking it in closet dooming it for years, only to substitute it for any other. Trends come and go, but the bag you love is classic, timeless, or even just plain ideal for your everyday needs. You have met your match. It may be your Chanel 2.55 bag, Balenciaga City, YSL Muse, Coach Signature Tote, Hermes Birkin, etc. For me, well besides my GSH City and (at this moment) Nightingale, the love in my life that I can’t seem to part with, ever since I saw it sitting neatly upon a pedestal in the Barney’s window, is my Lanvin Ludvine bag. (satin version pictured on momist). Not exactly the same version pictured above, mine is dressed in a luxe squishy black leather with vintage brown goat flat handles and features a totally chic lucite frame. Nonetheless, if they were standing next to each other, one would obviously come to the conclusion that they are closely related if not twins. I will wear it until its death..
The version resting in my closet is long sold out, however the style lives.. but not for too long because it’s in the sale section of bluefly for 20% off!
The form of the bag (pictured above) is created out of black woven straw and features silver-tone hardware. For easy access there is a large front patch pocket with twist-lock closure, that’s ideal for everything you want close (cellphone, keys, tickets, etc). The double rolled leather straps has a 6.5” drop, so to fits comfortably over the shoulder. The framed bag opens wide enough (about 11″,) to reveal everything in your bag within reach. No sifting for your wallet. Also, the lucite frame has a magnet built in, so it snaps shut with the slightest tap. Measurements: 15.5” at widest x 9.5” tall at center x 7” deep.
