The leather (I believe it's deerskin?) on that bag is divine. I remember talking to a lady trying on that bag at Saks last fall and almost passing out from how luscious that leather felt (and how expensive/"true-luxury" the bag looked). I only saw it in black, but I can just imagine how gorgeous the red would be. Back then the $3,395 price tag seemed way too large for me to swallow, but I guess given the last however many price increases.....that price tag now seems more reasonable, at least for a fairly large tote (gasp, can't believe I said that)!
