i saw a beautiful bolide being carried by a beautiful woman in her 50s today at the tod's boutique. it was light grey brown (taupe) with leather that had become soft with time. i love the look of the bolide, since i find it more streamlined and less cumbersome than the LV Alma which borrows its shape. i tried the resource thread but the lingo and the amount of info on leathers is confusing for me as a newbie. so if anyone could help... can you find bolides easily at the boutiques? i live in the NYC metro area, so i have the nyc and long island boutiques near me. what is the basic leather, basic price for a bolide?
