The Material Boy #215

Louis Vuitton Sac Sport In Siwa Leather

I think I found a new lust!

Blame it on the fashion spread on the latest issue of Men's Folio magazine. There is one image on the fashion editorial that features this gorgeous asian model dressed in slim stripey Gucci pants and almost everything else Louis Vuitton, including of course, the super cute and highly desirable Louis Vuitton Sac Sport In Black Siwa Leather.

And since I was shopping at Louis Vuitton Ngee Ann City yesterday...I took the opportunity to try out the bag as well. Gorgeous! Gorgeous!:-) The strap is the right length to sling across the shoulders very nicely. The bag just ends up at the right height. A zip on the side makes it a very user friendly bag as I can retrieve any commonly used items easily. The bag is made of full leather, luxurious. I love the drum shape, very cute. The look is sporty and yet there is a sense of nonchalant luxury attached to it. The fashion editorial says it all. Originally I did not see it beyond the sporty look, but after seeing the fashion spread, this is one bag I am seriously craving for! (In fact, I want everything the model is wearing!) I also see it working super well with shorts and that Hermes highcut espadrilles.

Disturbia! Mark (Freshmess) likes to put it. I can't seem to get it out of my mind. Rescue me!

Prices are over the SGD $4000 mark. Oh my. Can I strike lottery tonight?

Oh the sac sport is gorgeous...If only it is not so expensive. Yikes.

If I want to get it, I will have to save up for it.

I can imagine slinging this across and wear shorts and sandals for a very summery nonchalant look! The siwa leather version is nicer than the suede. Looks more luxurious.

i've seen the bags, its rather heavy and i think its rather expensive. too big for daily use i feel

i've stopped buying mens mag for a few months now because it will cause temptation!

im kinda leaning more towards the suede since i don't have any suede bag yet. i just hope they're all a little too expensive for most so it would still be around later this year.

which reminds me... the LV Men's Fall/Winter '09 show is this Thursday. fingers crossed they'd be more easy on the wallet.

Hopefully, since this 2009 is suppose to be tight on pockets:-P

and Joseph, yeah, the full leather bag is weighty...the size is actually okay to me, maybe i like big bags. But the price is too ex!
