Lanvin does away with its usual frills and frippery for this elegant Partition Purse.
The Partition has all the elements that make me weak at the knees. Its design is clean and contemporary, a modern take on the classic flap-over purse. The real snakeskin material has dainty, delicate scales which look especially rich, especially against the gleaming pale gold hardware. And that bold red color is incredibly sexy.
Lanvin calls the Partition mid-sized, but it’s so narrow that I’d probably call it small. That means it’ll probably work better as an evening bag than an everyday option. It’s well designed though, with zip and slip pockets helping us stay organized.
The strap is much shorter than I’d like though. The Partition’s small enough to be carried by hand without too much fuss, but when we’re on the go a hands-free option is always much more convenient.
The price is likely to be the Partition’s biggest stumbling block. For $3685 I expect a bag that can become part of my everyday wardrobe, not one that can only be trotted out on special occasions.
