LVook-See Review of the Kalahari GM

I went to the boutique today, with my usual accomplice, Jerome, and we were presented with 2009 Spring Summer's showpiece, the Kalahari GM. As soon as our SA pulled it out of the dustbag, both of our jaws dropped! The look is stunning but after our initial reactions subsided, Jerome found it uncomfortable to sling over the shoulder. For me, it was quite cumbersome to get in and out of especially with the beads in the front. The metallic leather is soft and luxurious and covers the entire inner flap which was nice but brown microfibre was used for the lining which darkened the interior and could prove to be a challenge when looking for stuff. The bag is definitely a head turner but it lacks functionality if you want an everyday bag. Hope this helps for anyone considering a $3K bag purchase.


  1. Hi there, i jes randomly stopped by your blog via

    anywhos, cute blogspot.
    your name reminds me of what marc jacobs said (the creative director as you probably already know):
    you can't spell LOVE without 'LV'
    LOL cheesy but i still remember that ! & he said that a while back now.. x)

  2. Thanks for the post and visit again soon!!!

  3. I have to admit I'm kinda happy that you mention this bag being uncomfortable coz that makes me feel a lot better about not being able to afford it now! XD

    Btw, do you know if the Stephen Sprouse LV charm on the phone (see your Feb 25 post) is still selling in Asia? (I'm in Singapore)

  4. Hey Nashe^, thanks for visiting. I'm sorry but I can't tell you the inventory in Singapore. Do you guys have a number that you can call like here in the US? It's a great cell charm so I hope you get it.

  5. Oh yeah! Thanks. I gave them a call. Thinking of getting the one in fuchsia. Wheee~~
