I’m always happy when I see a Louis Vuitton bag that is not full of monograms all over the place. This is one of them. It’s classy, it’s simple and quite functional with the removable shoulder strap. The suede looks very fine and smooth. I think Sofia Coppola did a very good job on this one. Unlike most Louis Vuitton bags, this one really illustrates the meaning of subtle luxury.
You won’t find everybody at the mall wearing this bag, even though it is a Louis Vuitton. That is probably because it costs $3,870 and this bag might be too plain for some people who love monogrammed bags.

As soon as I saw Madonna’s Louis Vuitton Ad campaign, I associated the Kalahari bag that she was wearing with the Carlos Falchi bag. I’ve seen the Carlos Falchi bag around for sometime. I even saw it on the sale at Neiman Marcus a while ago.
The Kalahari Bag from Louis Vuitton is one of their Spring 2009 collection. Is it possible that the Kalahari design was inspired by the Carlos Falchi bag? In my opinion, the Carlos Falchi bag is the better deal, since it is made of durable deerskin compared to the coated canvas of Louis Vuitton Kalahari. In addition, the deer skin flap drapes better compared to the coated canvas flap.
