Last week, I went with a few friends to see the Collection of Elizabeth Taylor at Christie’s in NYC. From extravagant evening gowns to Chanel bags galore, there was a wide array of items to see. But the driving force behind this viewing for the majority of people there was Liz Taylor’s jewels, and boy did they sparkle! I found plenty of items that were gorgeous (but not quite my taste) that I will forever dream about owning. The overall theme was diamonds, as they were found on nearly every single piece of jewelry she owned.
And just as the saying goes, “diamonds are a girls best friend”, I was completely enamored with all of the bling. So I have been in a diamond state of mind for over a week and recently the Lanvin Diamond-Print Canvas Tote popped up on Net-A-Porter.
So this bag doesn’t truly sparkle, in fact all of the diamonds are merely printed on the canvas body. But I like the idea of this bag. I hate the price ($850 for canvas), but the thought of this bag is fun. The design could easily be seen as obnoxious, but again I feel like the diamonds being printed on canvas keeps this looking much more subdued and flat.
There is no great use for this bag, other than a fun everyday tote. The serious problem is the price, that I refuse to pay for a tote like this. If only it were $150, I would totally consider it for a fun option in my rotation. Buy via Net-A-Porter for $850.
