Yes, it's still in production. I actually included the information regarding the new version in the reference library thread of the Voltaire, but it seems to be deleted. Which is a little weird, since it's quite important information?!
But to answer your question. They conceived the Voltaire in a much thicker canvas, which makes the Voltaire stay structured in the long run. That's basically all that changed, but I personally really like it this way. As far as I know they made this change somewhere in the mid of 2014.
With that change the Voltaire also had a quite significant price increase, it went up from 1350 to 1625.
The Voltaire is indeed still being produced. I picked up a green one last month from the Goyard boutique in London. They had every color except for white. I was planning to get mine in Paris but had to alter my travel plans to London at the last minute due to the unfortunate attacks in Paris.
Super love your green Voltaire!
may i know under what occasion you use it? what color of outfit u wear when carrying it?
My fav colour is green and i love goyard green...but i just couldn't by pass the obstacle that i will look like a Christmas tree / grinch (yeah the jimcarrey movie...) when carrying green goyard bag. So the most i can accept is carrying green senat / wallet.
And yes - your green Voltaire looks so much better than my burgundy!
Thank you. I just use my bag whenever I need a tote. I don't really worry about matching or clashing with outfits. Of course, most of my clothes are grey, blue, black, or dark green in color. I guess wearing something red with a green bag would look very Christmas-like, but if you walk around with enough confidence and "own it", then I don't think it would matter, just my 2 cents on the matter. I do have a red ambassade. Now THAT stands out regardless.
