Does anyone have a viola dylan? How is the leather? Do you think the leather is better then botkier or kooba. What other brands would you compare Linea Pelle too? Sorry for all the million questions! I just ordered this bag from bloomies never seeing the bag in person so I'm not sure what to expect. Thanks for all your help!!!!

Megs and Vlad have them and have reviewed these for us.

What style did you buy ?
I wouldn't compare LP leather to any others; it's very different and much nicer than other brands, including those you mentioned. Don't expect anything like you've known before.
The Croco is drum-dyed, enzyme washed & stone tumbled Italian lambskin which is then HAND embossed... That means beautiful, velvety, earthy, thick, and (often called) smooshy leather.
You can expect great craftsmanship, quality solid brass hardware, good organization, the best softy leather in the world and a fabulous looking bag !
I'm happy for you ! :wlae:
Viola seems to be the most wanted of all, so we will need your pictures !

I just got my first LP bag, and the leather is amazingly soft, supple, and just...well, I want to keep touching it. It's beautiful. I've not owned many designer bags, but I've felt a lot of them at the stores (sounds awful, eh?), and only one Marc by Marc Jacobs bag came close to the soft texture of the leather; still didn't beat it or even match it, but the one purple bag I drooled over was close.

What I find most suprising about the clutch I got is the softness is combined with some sheen. Not patent sheen, but still some sheen. Usually, soft doesn't go with sheen from what I've seen/tried.

Personally, the pebbled leathers don't appeal to me, but I saw some last week and they, too, were totally soft. Usually, embossed leathers are not so soft.

i got an LP Dylan Croco Long Zip Wallet in the Viola and the leather is the softest i have ever felt. i have a couple Rebecca Minkoff bags, a Gryson, a Kale, and nothing compares to the softness. the color is also TDF. enjoy!

I tried the Viola Croc Dylan on in the store (Clutch in Seattle). It was fabulous. The leather is some of the softest I've felt, and I carry a smooshy Rebecca Minkoff bag as my everyday bag. I hope you love it!

I believe Viola is a deep purplish color. I hope that's right cause I ordered one too and its been shippped! Yay!

I LOVE LP! I think they're one of the most overlooked bags out there.

My Croco Dylan arrived today and I couldn't be more pleased. What a truly lovely bag it is! I'm going to put my stuff in it immediately! :heart:
It's STUNNING! I think it looks more purple with flash, but actually it's closer to black, right? I got myself this color in the shoulder bag version,too, can't wait to get it!

It kind of depends on the light: we're having a nice sunny day and outside, the bag looks more purple, but when I take it inside, it does look more black.

Can't wait to see yours! :tup:
