I remember reading something about GD earlier. Are people still interested in this bag? :toung: I ordered one from the N. American distributor, and am wondering does anyone have one?

I'm sorry but I didn't even know who this designer was and googling around didn't help. The next time you bring a designer up out of the blue, please give us a picture or link so we know you are talking about.

This is the most useful thing I could find, and of course it comes from the best source of all time - Purseblog.com :smile:

I think it's simple and has a good shape to it - but the color and shape of the bag reminds me of something Cole Haan would do.

The Drape bags by Gerard Darel seem to be very popular, yet hard to get in the US. Mind if I ask where you got it from?

I got mine from Balisimo (I know, they have a quirky spelling) in Redondo Beach, CA. The quality is surprisingly excellent, I'll try to post a pic tomorrow...

I look forward to seeing it, what color did you get?

What's the interior like? Does it pockets, cell phone holder, etc.? Also when you take pics of it can you put a tube of lipstick next to it so we know how big it is?

I like this bag too and did some search right away. It turns out that Gerard Darel is a French design but there is nothing on his website, just a picture. And found this another one http://www.linternaute.com/femmes/luxe/0508sacs/6.shtml#.
Did you get more info about the bag, Lexi? Does anyone have the dimension, Michelle maybe? Thanks.
