LVook-See Review of the Cabas Ipanema

I had a rough day at work today so when Jerome invited me to do a LVook-See at our local boutique, I didn't even consider going to the gym anymore. Upon entering, we immediately saw the vibrant colors amid the Monogram browns. Proudly displayed in their respective shelves were the rose, jaune, marine and sable of the Cabas Ipanema. Both sizes, GM and PM were already available for pre-sale for Saturday's official release. The bag is pretty much like the Tahitienne in many respects but has a more rounded shape. Pleats add a nice touch at the bottom and the interior is roomy and has a pochette that is attached with a leather strap. J wanted the GM but the handles he says is not comfortable as a shoulder bag due to the way the straps are cut. The LVoely associate said that the leather will soften in time and hence would be more comfy. One thing I like about it, is the button detail that has the "Articles de Voyage Louis Vuitton" engraved on it. Overall it's a great beach tote and will hold summer paraphernalia well. Prices are $1080 for the PM and $1250 for the GM. Pardon the blurry pic.
