Some of you may remember the news of my upcoming Damier custom special order (Greenwich PM meets West-End PM, weekend bag with a twist - the twist being cases/pockets to accomodate drawing items, pencils/pens/sketchbooks/paper etc), and essentially, the last LV piece I'll be obtaining myself for the forseeable future. I got a call today from the Leather Goods Manager helping me with the SO to tell me it had been officially approved So all there's left to do is go in to finalise details (which I'm doing tomorrow lunchtime) and it starts happening!:okay: Here are some reeeally lousy quality photos of my initial sketches of the bag > the bag will have the exact same external proportions as I specified/requested, but there are still some details left to finalise (Precise internal pocket dimensions, exact location of pen case, etc). *Features: - Rolled short handle (As per Monogram Satellite stuitcases) - Dual buckle closure (Squared buckle closures as per Damier Uzes - not more common 'pointed' buckle closure) - 5 brass feet - Detachable (via snap-buttons) pencil/pen case on underside of bag opening. - Two internal D-rings - Large patch pocket to accomodate Moleskine paper sketchbooks - Large zipped compartment - Lined in mustard-yellow Alcantara (as per Blue Monogram Denim bags) (I decided against shoulder strap-rings in the end, as I want to keep it to it's intended purpose, an old-school-style weekend bag). And there will be a second custom made item, a matching Damier Portfolio, essentially a huge pochette cles (with chain/ring) measuring 30 x 40cm which will fit perfectly inside the bag, also lined in mustard-yellow Alcantara > to keep larger papers, MacBook and also to use as my work portfolio (I'm a graphic designer by trade). I'll get to see/receive the official drawings from Paris, tomorrow ('Schematics': the SA who called me today called them). And I will definitely post pictures of the WIP drawings on here for all to see, in the next few days. *I'm also going to ask about the possibility of a custom painting, not just some initials, stripes or even a crest, but something REALLY different. Since painted Speedys and Keepalls will be able to be made to order as of next month, I'm sure it'll be possible with my Sac Weekend de Dessin, as my SA told me was printed on LV's drawings. I guess this makes it my bag's official title .
