Lanvin epitomizes French chic. Its designs are both classic and cutting edge, beautifully crafted, and a little bizarre, sometimes. The Happy Snakeskin bag is the perfect example of how well all of these things can be brought together.
First of all, who doesn't love snakeskin? No one that I know of except the occasional vegetarian. This particular snakeskin is so delicately textured that it has an almost lacy appearance, and the black and white color combination really brings out the best of the scale detail.
The classic rectangular flap-front shape is simple enough to allow the natural beauty of the snakeskin to show through. It's also sized in such a way that it will definitely be noticed with any ensemble, but it's certainly not ostentatious.
I don't always love the way that Lanvin throws a chain, grosgrain, and leather strap on everything, but here it looks like magic. The softness of the grosgrain perfectly accents the texture of the snake, and the chain and leather adds a tiny bit of edgy charm.
This is a beautiful everyday bag for a woman for whom money is no object. Priced at $2,230, it's reasonable for an exotic, but too rich for my blood.
