I think the leather will last, I’m more concerned about the black hardware , but my CS mentioned, if the black hardware peel off , I can bring it back to them.
The black hardware feels like plastic , same like the Eclipse Mini Soft Trunk and they are some sort of ‘protection’ at the D rings .
I hope the black hardware will last View attachment 5073756
Oh I had thought the hardware was metal! Not a fan of the plastic hardware that Virgil has incorporated into various bags - durability is really a concern.

Just now my CA told me the hardware is not plastic , it could be metal coated with thick plastic coat? ... I’m not sure, I will just enjoy using it and return to LV if there is problem. :smile:

In bag fantasy
I think I will be returning this but wanted to show the vanity pm. It’s a beautiful and unique piece for special occasions. I want something unique and interesting like this piece but more for every day use View attachment 5073647 View attachment 5073649 View attachment 5073650 View attachment 5073651 View attachment 5073652
Good decision made to return. I saw someone using it as a handbag the other day and it was just weird. It’s a vanity case, not a bag.

Happy Tuesday friends! Some goodies arrived today :yahoo:
The Slim Purse is my first Reverse Mono print and very versatile! I can confirm it fits my giant Samsung Note 10+ (without case) but I don't recommend it. I feel like the canvas will stretch. It fits my Coussin PM perfectly and actually fits in my large Kirigami. Just waiting for my PM to arrive so I can fit it in there ;)
The Around the World Bandeau is just gorgeous :love: totally fuelling my wanderlust.

Actually I noticed this on my NIGO Sling bag, it's same design, which is a plastic shell over metal ring which will prevent the scratches on the hook, if TWO parts are metals. the black paint will be worn off .. so it's a smart design, one part is metal which on the strip and the d ring is plastic over metal. It has to be like that, otherwise the metal part will show the tears.. I rather not to see the tears and wears. the texture is nice, you don't really feel plastic, at least I wear my nigo sling bags several times a week, I just noticed that today..

Just picked this up yesterday. The cruiser messenger from the men's rubber collection.

I know this collection gets so much hate. :biggrin:

Here it is next to my cannes. View attachment 5075017

Then when I picked it up from the store.

How much does it hold? Honestly the rubber element is growing on me but I wonder about stains and wear and tear... It looks better in photos than the initial show book photos for sure!
