Ladies, according to Shawn's Facebook page, this bag will finally be presented tonight on PM Style. I still think it is too thin for my taste, and way out of my budget, but I'm looking forward to finally seeing it presented. Just wanted to give a heads up if anyone is interested. Smiley Happy

Watched the presentation on PMS tonight-the GILI foldover tote is gorgeous-the leather looks exquisite! Anyone know the designer inspiration for it? Was it Chloe? 

 

Those purchasing-please post a review!  Hope you love it!!!

Well, it does look like a stunning bag but the presentation was so rushed, I didn't get any sense of what can actually fit into it (excpet of course, Gili Jill's hand sanitizer Smiley Wink -- really, that joke is getting a bit old ). I think they hyped it up all show and waited too long before the presentation -- although I suppose with only 600, it was going to go quickly regardless. As I've said before, I'm not in the market for this bag but do enjoy seeing beautiful bags presented and explained in depth. Oh well.  I hope everyone who got it will enjoy and I look forward to reading your reviews!

What surprised me:

 

1. The steep price, $359. And yet charcoal sold out DURING the presentation.

 

2. In the Isaac show, JUST BEFORE, an almost identical bag was shown (Isaac and Shawn gushed over it):

 

*both bags were shown as east-west foldovers*

None of these bags has a place in my wardrobe, but were I to be selecting one, the Fossil is by far the most attractive, to me, followed by Issac's.  The Gili would be my last choice and it's too narrow to be of much use, again, for me.  And yes, even if I was interested, that price would be a complete deal-breaker.
