My Mom is not familiar with LV styles - she has never had any LV bags, she has a few Gucci pieces but that's it. I want to buy her a nice LV bag that she can use often. What do you think is a good bag for her? Maybe the Cabas Piano? Is there anything similar to that in Damier? She gravitates towards totes.

TIA

If you have the time, you can always SO a damier cabas piano.
What? Does this mean that you can special order any of the regular line bags (monogram canvas) and have it made in the damier canvas? That would be so awesome!

Yep...it would take about 6 mths though.:sad2: I called about ordering one and that's what the LV SA said.

yes, my SA says it takes 6-8 months and costs about 30% more than the monogram one.

In response to the orig question, how about the Damier Alma? It's a very mature bag and would look great w/ a suit or jeans for the mature woman.

OMG, I would love a Damier Piano for my Mom...and myself!

6-8 months is a long time. Do they take a 50% deposit first?

If she'd like something in the damier print, why don't you just wait for the Speedy. It's due out in a few months !

It just occured to me....can you get styles made in the epi?

I think my mom won't like the Alma...she loves her totes. But still it's a beautful bag!

SO a cabas piano in damier would be so lovely...the wait would kill me, but i'd LOVE to have that bag.

otherwise since she likes totes, the cabas piano is lovely of course, don't forget about the luco and the vavin.
