Yes, I found out about this last Saturday when I dropped by the Louis Vuitton store on 5th Avenue. I have been wondering why Mandara in the Epi leather line is not available in the eluxury site where LV’s are being sold online.
So what does this mean? I asked the associate about it, and she said that LV wants to maintain the exclusivity of the style, thus, the move to discontinue production of Mandara.
When my husband heard this, the collector as he is, he floated the idea that I should stop using Mandara so it stays in good condition. Why??? Because he thinks I can sell it in the future for more than the last selling price, because then, the purse is considered a limited release.
Oh my, he probably makes sense. So this is the deal: he doesn’t know I’m thinking about this. I will let him know I’m going to stop using Mandara and put the purse on retirement IF I get a replacement, which means, he’ll have to get me a new one. Not bad, right?
Let’s see how he responds. I’m crossing my fingers…
This is it for today…in My World.
