I just purchased my first H&H Bag, which I had to research and thanks to tpf I know it is a "Mercer" bag. I received it Saturday and can't believe how soft the leather is. I absolutly love it! I've had a few balenciaga bags and was even bidding on a white one but lost. When I saw this it reminded me a lot of the b-bags, the leather, tassels. It is just as soft as a b-bag, reminds me of a First or twiggy. I love the lining too and it has so many compartments. Being white, I'll use it from now until Labor day, then put her away. The only thing that was missing was the luggage tag but that doesn't bother me at all. Just wanted to share, thanks!
