WANT Les Essentials de la Vie’s Olympic Games Handbag | Limited Edition De Gaulle Bag with Interchangable Handles

Posted on: Apr 30

WANT Les Essentials de la Vie De Gaulle BagCanada's WANT Les Essentials de la Vie is getting into the spirit of the London Olympics early, with the release of its limited edition De Gaulle bag.

If you were contemplating which colored handle you'd prefer, don't. The De Gaulle is actually just one bag with five colored interchangeable leather handles inspired by the Olympic Rings. Each one was made in Italy, so you know it's been done right.

When I say the De Gaulle bag is limited, I mean it. There were just 47 of the bags created, one for every city that's hosted the modern Olympic Games. Each one is also engraved with each of these international locations.

The games might not be until 2012, but you can get these limited edition bags now at Holt Renfrew stores across Canada, Le Bon Marche in France, Harvey Nichols in Dubai, and a handful of other stores around the world. WANT Les Essentials de la Vie hasn't released any price for these handbags, which makes me think they're expensive. This level of exclusivity never comes cheaply, does it?

Does this De Gaulle bag get you excited about the Olympic Games, or do you think you'll save your pennies for one of the other inevitable games inspired accessories?
