Really Lanvin, really? We constantly share our Lanvin love on PurseBlog, since we have so much of it. Every design house decides to do something a little cooky from time to time and this is Lanvin’s flop. The Lanvin Flowered Denim Tote looks like nothing more than a take home art project.

There is yarn chiffon flowers accenting the front of the bag. Some of the flowers are bigger than the others, draping over the Lanvin logo. And because this bag is so “artsy”, Lanvin let the extra material at the end of the N dangle down the bag. Now the bag looks like a Lanvin knock-off from Lanvim. This is an all-over hot mess. And it is expensive, $1475 expensive.

At least when Fendi created a DYI bag you were actually the one that added your own touches. Lanvin already finished the art project and now wants to sell it to us. Somehow I can still picture someone taking this on their yacht in St. Tropez. Otherwise, a no from me. Buy via Neiman Marcus for $1,475.

    this is crap with Lanvin’s name slapped on it and who ever buys it is an idiot, and i don’t care how much money you have!

  • babe

    But a lovely inspiration for a pre-christmas crafting afternoon with my little daughter (and I mean this in a nice way).

  • Ginger

    Ya – I don’t get it.

  • Connie

    Ummmm I think my head hurts from all the bright colors! *covers eyes* Sheesh!

  • edoardo

    Amazing bag with a crazy price. Ok it’s LAnvin but the material and the creativity that this bag belongs have a value that can’t overtake the 600 euros!!

  • Cara

    It looks like it could be from the Lanvin for H&M collaboration. I can imagine it being a lovely summer bag to be taken to the Hamptons or St. Tropez like you mentioned; but the price seems too much…

    • Merve

      I so thought it was Lanvin for H&M. I nearly fell off my chair when i saw the price.

  • Linda

    I could do better at k-mart.

    • EvaKnox

      yea right :))))))))

  • Jen

    Yes I love lanvim! Lol

  • Vitta

    Megs, I was laughing my head off reading your review… As for the bag, it’s a great $1,475 Holiday joke, really…

  • mochababe73

    I would be embarassed to take this art project home. I would dump it in the nearest trash receptacle on my way home.
    Are you going to review the Balenciaga alphabet bag?

  • Kris

    quote from Nina Garcia in project runway: I m so confused!!
    whats wrong with these brand maker these day? Balenciaga/Kate Spade, and couple days ago there is Hermes lookalike clutch!!? Identity crisis!!!

  • Kat

    Oh geez! 1,475 for something that looks like this? I won’t even pay 20 bucks for this, especially with that “LanviM” on the front.

    It’s things like this that make me think twice about the whole luxury industry. Sure, there are some companies that are committed to delivering high-quality, hand-crafted products to justify the exorbitant prices they charge (Hermes, Bottega Veneta, etc.). But when I see something like this being sold, it just screams “we’re out to get your hard earned money whatever way we can!”. It’s just ridiculous. If a friend bought this, I would seriously have to re-think our friendship.

  • Hannah

    i can get one exactly the same for like.. 10 bucks from Thailand? :))

  • shirley

    Great bag, this bag is a little like the bags on this site: , they are handpainted bag, special and unique

  • Nee

    WTF?? Are you sure this is not a joke. I swear, the folks at LanviM were laughing hysterically when Neimans placed the order for this hot mess:(

  • Stylista

    Haha! Ok, yeah the price is high, but it’s not like I’m going to buy Lanvin anyway, so I’m just going to look at the bag itself. I love all the colour and the creative, spontaneity of the bag.

  • Kairy

    It’s unique but not for me thou….But I think it is still better than the Balenciaga Daim Alphabet Tote cost $1795….,default,pd.html

  • renee

    Brings back fond memories of the gifts my grandma brought back from Acapulco.

  • PhotoGirl

    Oh my! The daycare called. They want their crafting materials back!

  • Lorie

    Might as well bust out the Mumu, the big flowery hat and the bright pink lipstick while you’re at it. This screams I’m a tourist, and this is my first cruise to Mexico.

  • EllenR

    My mom brought home a straw tote bag EXACTLY like this one from a cruise they took to the Caribbean in the 70s. Gawd, what an eyesore.

  • Karin bag4bag

    Oh DEAR ! The Lanvin writing looks like it could be La Mum ! Looks like a horrible creation made by a child for their mother, that their mother must carry around until next Mother’s Day !
