Lanvin Gourmet 22 Faubourg Tote | Whimsical Waxed Canvas Designer Tote

Posted on: Feb 10

Lanvin is known for their subtle, elegant designs. Even when their materials are heavily printed, they are always tasteful, and almost never over-designed. This sunny spring tote is no exception, with its cheerful color palette and sleek styling.

The first thing I should say is that I love the print on this tote. With the smartly-dressed ingenue centrally placed and the soft blossoming flowers surrounding her, it is somehow reminiscent of some of Toulouse-Lautrec's famous prints. I even love the bright rays of sunshine, and am not put off by the heavy text, which translates to, "Lanvin All Year Round" on the side, and "Spring Collection" on the bottom.

The waxed canvas material is durable, and makes it perfect as a shopper. The size is more than generous for a tote, at 17" x 18" x 2". The handle drop of 7" means that you could even sling it over your shoulder if you wanted to, and the interior pouch pocket is convenient for stowing your keys as you amass luxury goods.

So, then, what's the catch, you ask? The price. This lovely little tote is $680 retail, which would be reasonable for a great daily handbag, but not for something that I might stow my celery in at the farmer's market! Between this and the Lanvin Satin Bowler, I am really beginning to question what one of my favorite labels, Lanvin, is doing with its accessories line.
