i just called a bazillion LV boutiques in and around nyc, which i would assume would be one of the first to get any sophies if they're released in the mainland. the consensus amongst the SAs seem to be the same:Was told this today by a Hawaiian management staffer at LV. I had thought it would be available on the mainland? Any other news??? It is a sweet bag!!!!!
yes, it was a special gift for the guests at the opening of the Omotesando flagship boutique a few years back. but those bore a special numbered leather label inside commemorating the eventReally, I didn't know Recital was initially only available in Japan! Glad they decided to release it in the US too...love that bag!
I think she was thinking of the anne-sophiehaaaaaaaaaaa.......too funny! just called one last LV boutique, and i asked if they were getting the sophie in feb. she replied, uhhh the sophie?? no that was actually discontinued. i was like what?! she added, yes, that was actually discontinued a while ago as a part of the monogram mini line, *giggle *giggle, like I'm a complete idiot..
um, guess they really haven't heard much about the sophie we're all clamoring for here...
It is listed under Vuitton.com in Japan... Anyone read japanese?
