You may very well be right - i'm in the UK and i thought this style over here was just under the £1000 mark so it may be my conversion...I think the cross body version was around £750 - i don't think anyone round here has this style though but maybe someone will pop up with better information!
I don't know the retail of the tote. But I found one similar to the one of Kate Bosworth on Net-a-porter. Retail was US$ 1560 and it is from the spring 2008 show. You can get these styles at yoox.com actually.
There are more styles for Europe than for the U.S. The one you are asking for is available in white for 805 € / 595 £
Found the red and the black one yesterday on bluefly ( buffalo leather ) after my first posting.
They name it " large Boston bag" and the retail is
retail value: $2,090.00
