Ooh I ve never seen the élan! I have a plume 32,which is good for the summer but I was thinking of a new one for winter - not decided if I get another plume which works well for me or a Victoria which looks more robust... Any comparison photos would be great.I love the victoria élan and own several, but the regular victoria is too boxy for me. And I also own several plumes. So which one do I vote for?
For overall style, the plume wins for me, but I needed a shoulder option so I went with the Victoria - it is very versatile and under the radar. I also have the Paris-Bombay Tall and like it just a bit more because it is leather lined and more comfortable on the shoulder, but it is overall bigger than the Victoria, slouchy and casual with long handles, so I see it as a much different bag than the plume.I only own the Plume 32 and the thing is I prefer the rolled handles that can lie flat against the bag due to the hardware which doesn't happen on the Victoria. Plus the size 35 is too big for me and I've never seen a smaller size of the Victoria. If I was going for a large bag in a similar style I'd go for the Paris Bombay Tall.
Good luck deciding!
supposedly the evelyne canvas strap works on the plume and I recently saw a woman with a plume 32 and the evelyne strap attached but I didnt find it aesthetically pleasing.Does any one know, if a strap would work on the Plume?
