Lanvin is one of those lines that inspires a cultishly loyal following. Its designs sit right on the edge of avant garde, but stay close enough to the mainstream to be totally wearable. This Faubourg Cabas tote combines the line's edgy sensibility with a strong dose of practicality.
The snakeskin print on the bag is bold and eye-catching. It's successful because it doesn't even pretend to be "realistic", it's a straight-forward graphic interpretation of snakeskin. The black grosgrain logo across the front looks like melting graffiti, and although I don't love prominent logos, this one looks showy and interesting, and it goes with the pop art style of the bag.
The Faubourg Cabas tote is giant, big enough for a weekend's worth of groceries or clothing. The leather handles make it comfortable to carry and are also durable. The only drawback is that they prevent the bag from being machine washable, although I'm not sure many people would throw a $690 bag in the washer, anyhow.
Speaking of the price, it's just too high. I love Lanvin as much as the next girl, but $690 for a cotton tote, no matter how big it is, is just unacceptable.
