Louis Vuitton Kalahari GM/PM

It's been awhile since I have gone gaga for a Louis Vuitton bag. And, in recent years, I have a tendency to stay away from monogram prints as well. However, I think I am in love with a monogram Louis Vuitton bag. Kalahari is from the 09 S/S Show Collection with Madonna as spokesperson. I didn't even look the bag on the ad campaign but while at a LV boutique to check on an Alma bag for gal pal yesterday, I saw and fell in love with IT. Perhaps it's the unusual detail or the ruffle flap in front but something about this bag just got to me. I expected the ruffle flap to be hard but it was surprising pliant and manageable. The strap sat really comfortably atop my shoulder and the body of the bag tucked nicely under my arm. I didn't have a chance to look at the color leather ones but I figured those would cost an arm and a leg so moot point then.
There are two sizes available GM which is about 13 x 12 x 3.5 inches or PM which is about 10 x 9 by 4 inches. I like the GM but the PM monogram bag is a bow in the center which I think is sort of cute but for that style of bag, I like the larger one better for the more dramatic bolder look. Monogram GM retails for $3390 and PM, 2660. Ouch! In case anyone is interested leather Kalahari bag starts at around $4800. I am right, they do cost an arm and a leg! Do you like this?

  13. i love it as well i was on the waiting list at two locations to get one when it first hit the stores. Low and behold I walk into the LV store looking for any everyday bag to carry and they had my baby (Kalahari) in a glass case. I immediately said is that just for show or is it for sale. She looked surprised and said we just put that up (in case) and I said well ill take it and the rest is history. I love my Kalahari bag.
