It's an interesting and fairly complex issue to discuss. I can see both of your points and think that perhaps you both are correct, but are viewing the brand from different angles. Comparing the exemplary pieces from each collection, probably babar is correct. Some of the really key SLP pieces are, no doubt, pretty good. On the other hand, taking the "brand" as a whole and its full range of products... I tend to side with DesignerValet. I was really, really...
^I dish out the negatives re: Gucci all the time, but I must admit a soft spot for the Diamante bags and know that when Gucci wants, they can definitely make a nice bag. I had this soft briefcase from 2010 in that pattern in fabric and it was a lot of fun (though ultimately I didn't like how the tough leather/soft fabric moved/wore together and so got rid of it). Enjoy your bag and hope you have lots of good travel with it.
Agreed; that's a beauty.
RJ was a nice one; like Cuiron and BelAmi it used to be one of those you could find easily and very cheaply (IIRC I got my 50ml bottles for about $10 each). Not so today! But, it's a nice scent and got lots of compliments. Shalimar for me today... nothing surprising (haha). I keep mentioning it only in hopes that all of you guys will forget that your grandmother loved it and try it yourselves.
Can't wait to see the designs! A weekender will really round out your collection.
Haha. Ala habit rouge, I don't know if I've shared (I probably have) the story of the French aristocrat/he-devil in my college dorm who bathed once a week in the shower, favored Le Pen, paid his college fees in cash, and crashed his computer with torture porn... but bathed daily in habit rouge. To this day, the whiff of it makes me gag. A gorgeous scent, sadly ruined by a horrible little man (may he live in interesting times).Love Tom Ford's BO (haha). ps today my SOTD...

Agreed! Actually, the Chicago Jil store was the site of my first Jil purchase... way back in college in the 90's. It was one of the classic "tailor made" crisp white dress shirts when Jil and Menichetti were doing everything. Ah, the good old days.
Oh, my, I've had an account at both places for most of a decade; there are many reasons why I don't post much, however. Back in 2004-05 both were quite lively with lots of really interesting industry experts and neat members... but most all have moved on. Anyway, will share more later.Nice Magritte, btw.
