I was in Filene's Basement today and saw a very nice BV for $400 (they claimed it retailed for $1500). It is a classic, small/medium sized black hobo with only the strap having the nice weaved leather - the rest of it was the nice supple leather they are famous for with a magnetic closure. I'm pretty sure its authentic as it is beautiful quality and has the suede lining BUT the reason I question its authenticity is that I can't find anything currently from the BV line that is similiar...as such, is it just a really old model? The other thing that makes me wonder a little bit is that they also had a canvas Blvgari purse in the same cabinet (I thought they only did jewelry and perfume!!) Thoughts? I have this on hold until tomorrow morning. Thanks so much!
