Hey guys.

I've never really noticed many people mentioning the kimono on this site so was wondering what everyone thoughts are on it?

Has it become a permanent Louis Vuitton bag in stores?



I'm thinking of buying it as a bag for work (GM).

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks

:smile:

Quite honestly I've always disliked this bag but I was shopping at Costco with my hubby this weekend and he pointed a bag out to me that the lady in front of us was carrying. He said he really liked it. I actually thought it looked nice on her and sort of changed my mind about the bag. If you love the design of the bag, go for it!

I love it! Not enough to spend 4k AUD on it though. I think it's overpriced, but with that aside, it's a beautiful bag.

I think its a nice bag . It would be a great work bag because of its size . However , if your just going to use it as a work bag , I feel its a bit pricey for that .

I had it when it first came out, in black, and was limited and I guess hard to get. Then they did another run, based on the demand, then more colors, and then a smaller size with a strap, and I felt like it wasn't as special to me anymore, so I parted with it, as it wasn't a bag I wanted to take to work, and I didn't hardly carry it enough when not at work. But that is me...

Hmm pretty mixed responses...

Are there any other bags you would suggest?
I don't want the neverfull or any common Lv bags, I want something different but distinctively lv. Something I can take to work and out and about.

I have my eye on the smaller version of the bag that comes with the strap. I don't see a ton of them where I live. I think the bag is stunning and it stands apart from a lot of the other Louis bags out.

I saw a lady carrying a Cherry pm and I fell in love with it at first sight. It's beautiful! The kimono, bigger sized, is too big for my frame and I personally find it overwhelming. But the pm I love! I've been thinking of getting it but it is pricey.

Would you consider alma? It is distinctively lv and I think it is great for work too. I know there are newer bags from lv but alma is a great classic.

I never gave this bag much thought until I saw it in person at the supermarket one day. It was stunning! Personally thought it was a refined statement tote compared to others. I was staring at it so much the husband noticed and held on to it in the cart a little tighter [emoji5]
