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)

Hey there! I'm so happy everyone now takes notice of "interesthing". Haha. I knew about them since mid last year or so and boy, they definitely have drool worthy pieces! How I wish I can have them all! :P To date, my very best purchase from them would definitely be the Croc-like Versace Wallet. It was at a total steal! :D

Hey Kevin, I definitely want one too, but I am still on the quest for the GM in Red/Blue...

Kevin and myMANybags said...

Shhhhhh....we are all suppose to be discreet here. :-P I am keeping mum about this. Hehehehe.

*Kevin 'delusionally' thinking he can keep a good bag secret*

Kevin and myMANybags said...

Oh...the size seems really small for this bag. Only 33.5 cm. Like a piece of A4 paper...:-(...A4 paper =29.7cm width

If only they have a bigger one. But I will go try.

Kevin and myMANybags said...

Mr 'Duck' (Javier:-p), almight LV resource guru...

do you know what is the original price of this bag when it was first launched?

From The Bagaholicboy That Hails From Singapore said...

If you guys really want something from there, let me know to at least go down and have a good once-over on it at your behalf before you commit.

Kevin and myMANybags said...

BB is the best!:-)

Yes, all non sg based friends:-) will be grateful to you:-)

i think the Street Shopper PM was about AU$2600. and yes, its small. a guy can't pass it off as a briefcase. well i couldn't. believe me, i tried. but the GM is too big for everyday. though i would still love a GM in the red/blue colourway.

Get this one Kevin! This bag caused me sleepless nights back in 2007. I prefer the red/blue one though.

Goodluck!!!

Allan said...

this is a really small bag, Kev. Chuvaness has the red/blue one and it really looks like a purse.

Go for the bigger one if you can find it.

Hey Kevin, keep the cash till you come across the GM version. I've the GM one in red/blue and it's just the perfect size for guys of our height. It's a pity I didn't manage to get the gold one which I personally prefer.

Good luck hunting! I'm so amused that we share similar tastes in bags despite our differing styles. Hehe…

Not going to buy this already. I cut a piece of paper almost the same dimensions of this bag and test it in front of the mirror. It's really small, like a hangbag size. Not really for guys.
Thanks for the suggestions and support.:-)

Happy Sunday!
