The Material Boy #205
Louis Vuitton Cuir Tresse Street PM Gold
Alvin or we all affectionately know him as 'BB' recently acquired 2 very unique Louis Vuitton items that are simply breath-taking. Love his new mini lin travel bag and the groom bag charm. Such a one of a kind item. And through his buying experience, I learned about this reseller that sells all this lovely treasures from past seasons.
One of the very drool worthy piece I found on the reseller's website is this Louis Vuitton Cuir Tresse Street PM in Gold. Made to resemble those 'cheap' traveller bags from Hong Kong/China, it is such a unique concept that is both quirky and decadent. And you guys kn0w, I love decadent things. I am that silly. This was one of the bags that got me excited in 2007 and I did keep in mind to look out for it. But it seems I was distracted by other bags and did not make an enquiry since I never saw them in LV stores. Furthermore, as this is woven leather and not plastic, the price will be probably be out of my reach anyways. But I love it then and upon seeing this again, my LVoe is rekindled.:-)
Although this is a women's bag, I can totally see myself or any other guys using this bag. That is if the size is not too small. Measuring 33.5(W) X 26.5(H) X 14.5(D) cm, it seemed a bit small. I will need to try it in person to determine. If the sizing fits, this bag will feel more like a briefcase due to its boxy and rectangular shape. I have never seen this bag in real, but just looking at the pics alone, with the white and gold is already enough to make me drool.
The interior lining is very pretty as well with white monogram pattern. The gold and white colour mix with a red LV trunks stamp is simply divine and ingenious.
Dear 'higher shopping powers' above, please let me win TOTO or 4D this coming weekend....so I can add this gorgeous bag to my 'portfolio':-P This may be my only chance to buy the bag....
Cross my fingers if my prayers will be answered.:-P
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. And for those reading this, keep your hands off 'MY' bag!..Or else...:-P
Retail price: SGD $3480. Where to buy: (I am not revealing until I determined if the size fits. Hehe)
