    Default Louis Vuitton Fleur de Jais

    Louis Vuitton F/W 2010-2011's fashion show produced some AMAZING bags! There was alligator, sequins, new styles... so many things to see!

    The limited edition bags have become more and more unique as the years have gone on, and I think this one has severely stepped up the game! The Fleurs de Jais Speedy is interesting. The monogram canvas is the base of the bag, and there is an explosion of gray to black sequins in a floral pattern. Added to the iconic Speedy shape are four brass feet on the bottom. The feet make sense, protecting the bottom of the bag seems essential when there is so much going on. The Fleur de Jais Speedy is a 30, so a perfect size, and priced at $2250 (tentatively). I personally think the price is right for this bag - the craftsmanship is gorgeous. There is only one thing about this bag that bothers me - the vachetta! I think the handles and other vachetta items should be black. I think it would make the bag look so much better.

    So what are your thoughts on this bag? Worth the price? Worth the waitlist?

    There are also two other bags in the Fleur de Jais line:

    This is the Manege - hand held clutch with wrist strap. The black leather looks great, but the wrist strap is still vachetta. I'm just not liking the non uniform look. Tentatively priced at $2290.

    The second bag is the Carrousel. I like the rounded shape, but again, the vachetta handles are bothering me. The price on this one is a little high at $3090, but for some this might be too irresistible to pass up and the price won't matter. I also like the signature lock on the front.

    I am just not a fan of these. That bags look tattered. I would not bother spending money to own one of these!

    Thanks for the info Alex !

    I love the Carrousel version with the black croc flat -- it's beautiful but that price. OUCH!

    That's true, Z, with patina it will look better. I can't wait to see what they look like IRL.

    I like the carousel and I think the pattern is very interesting. MUCH better than cherries!

    I'm also not really loving the hanging key a la the MC Speedy. I think it takes away from the bag.

    I like them... but probably not something I would actually want to buy.

    The pattern, or lack of one, makes my eye twitch. I'm going to have to say no on the one.

    Can't wait to see these! August 6th I think is the date they're coming out. I'm still totally unsure of the look with the handles, but I guess it's more of an in-person bag, to know how it looks all together.
