Hello Everyone,

I just bought one of these, and noticed that the leather is very, very soft and squishy and just smooshes/slouches together. None of my other YSLs are like this. I have the regular patent muse, and the leather is thicker and definitely not as smooshy/slouchy.

The croc-embossed patent leather on this Rive Gauche is definitely more slouchy than the regular, non-patent leather, non-croc embossed Rive Gauche I had seen and tried on in the past.

I just want to know from any of you that own this bag or have tried it on, was yours the same? TIA!

Used. I know the ones I have seen that are not patent leather are thick and stiff too? The patent leather on it is very thin, but in a nice way.

i've got the croc stamped muse, and its definitely softer than the normal patent ones. i believe there was a thread or been a discussion of this before. dont worry, i personally really like how soft it is. :smile:

Marbella, you should be pleased because I am guessing that your bag is soft and slouchy and light because it is made of LAMBSKIN--very luxurious IMO!

Shazam owns a Catwalk bag in the croc-embossed lambskin patent, and she discusses it in these two threads:

Does your Rive Gauche look like these? (Pics borrowed from Reference Library http://forum.purseblog.com/ysl-reference-library/post-pics-of-ysl-rive-gauche-bags-here-368695.html) If so, I'm guessing its lambskin.

Cosmo and peachiesncream- you are both right, this leather is so slouchy, and Cosmo- my bag is the black-croc embossed (I majorly mis-typed crox instead of croc!) in the picture you posted, and I always hesitated on buying the patent croc-embossed Rive Gauche, because I thought it was going to be stiff and boxy, but it is sooooooo soft and slouchy, I love, love, love it! Thanks to everyone for all your help!

Hi marbella, I was wondering where you found yours - I've been looking for the exact same one (black croc embossed) at a reasonable price forever with no luck.
Do you mind posting some modeling pictures so that I can enjoy it vicariously :smile:
