Like most have mentioned, this makes me very sad. Though its not my particular style, I wanted to buy the Gal for my mom as a Mothers Day present. She adores it so much! I waited too long :sad: ESP since I didn't expect this to happen bc it's such a beloved bag!

Wow, I just noticed this, too. Also, the Stresa is gone from the LV site as well. I had just gotten out my Azur Gal a couple of days ago, thinking that it is one of my prettier bags.

Yea, there is no Stresa in mono or Azur on the site anymore, but it sounds like there are still a few out there in the boutiques. I thought this bag was pretty, I had the Stresa PM in Azur, and all of the Vachetta didn't worry me, but it was just bigger than I wanted after a while, and since I had the Gal in Azur I went ahead and sold it. It was pretty, though.... sigh..... :rolleyes:

So glad I got my azur galliera gm right before they discontinued it. It's the most comfy bag I have. I also got the stresa pm in azur before the last price increase and before it was discontinued. Love both bags!

Good question, one I find myself often pondering :thinking: is it possible it was "too popular"? :biggrin: or maybe it was duped too much? :tdown:

So many people like this bag it's hard for me to think of it as "outdated" like other discontinued models.

More than likely this decision was based on profit$, the alcantara lining and nice details are not as economical to produce as other styles, or maybe it made owners so happy they didn't need to buy more bags for a while, that can't be good for business ;) oh well, who knows, I'm just speculating here :biggrin:
Oh, your ideas make sense... Most likely a mixture of all of your arguments... nevertheless, sad.. Let's wait, maybe there'll be re-launch in 5-7 years...:smile:

Thanks honey28 for finding some sense in my crazy ideas :biggrin:

So sad Stressa is gone too! that's another pretty bag.
Congrats to all the lucky owners of these two bags, take care of them... farewell Galliera and Stressa :wave:

It's been gone for awhile now. I phoned customer service at least 3x over the last few weeks trying to get one to no avail. I settled on the Soffi, but really wish I could have gotten the Galliera. I'm thinking maybe next year I'll try a pre-loved one if I still want it. By then I'm hoping 2nd hand prices will go down.

Wow! I was just on ebay and cant believe the price of the Galliera . Why is it so low? I mean some peoples bags are selling for around 800$. That just seems crazy. A friend of mine is thinking about selling hers but do you guys think she should wait ? Maybe they will have more value? :smile:

i want that bag also. i was deciding between this and the arty... i just worry the front metal would get scratched up and beat up easy... i wish they had the artsy GM still..
I better hurry and decide!
