Louis Vuitton Sofia Coppola SC Bag In Suede Asphalt
Ever since I tried on this Louis Vuitton SC Bag in suede asphalt, weeks ago when Louis Vuitton Ion Orchard first open its doors, it had lingered on my mind for the longest time.
I think I am smitten by the elegant and clean design, looking ambiguous in gender. Very practical and non bulky, with a gorgeous dark grey asphalt colour against black leather. Everything shouts buy me. The richness of the suede, sexy in a dark shade of deep grey accented with subtle gold brass hardware makes this bag a true classic. All but one thing holds me back from owning the bag...the very short strap.:-( Darn, if it is only just a tad longer, this bag would have come home to papa:-)
Now that I see Mr Sartorialist's belle, the equally classy and talented Miss Garance Dore carrying the bag...my lust is rekindled once again. Perhaps I can carry it with the shorter strap as a shoulder bag instead of cross body sling...perhaps I can still get away with the slightly petite size for a guy's bag since I am slim and tall...perhaps...the sumptuous asphalt suede will look glamourous and neutral on me, even if I am a guy...or perhaps I can fork out an arm and leg for it first and strike lottery later...perhaps...
I think I am in LVoe:-P
