Margherita Missoni in Louis Vuitton at La Perla Fall 2010

The combination of gorgeous girls in sexy lingerie and free-flowing wine gave a lot of men reasons to smile at the La Perla presentation. I however was more enamored by the A-list fashionistas in attendance —  Georgina Chapman, Rachel Roy, Maggie Rizer, and Margherita Missoni sporting the Louis Vuitton SC Bag Suede Asphalt ($3,730) all mingled in the claustrophobically-packed Chelsea space. A number of celebs, including Alexa Chung, have worn the Sophia Coppola-designed LV bag in the past few months and it wasn’t all the surprising to see Missoni opt for it. Though she’s the heiress to the Missoni brand, she seems to favor monochromatic looks over loud prints when making public appearances. I’m liking how she’s styled for the presentation – the simple bag balances her eye-catching hat well. The Asphalt is made from suede leather and was inspired by the speedy. All that good stuff said, while it’s soft, roomy, and has a convenient extra strap, it lacks the bells and whistles that would make it worthy of the price point for someone on any sort of a budget. 

What do you think about Margherita’s LV?

    I love the Asphalt….Recently I’ve been on a “duffle-esque” bag kick– this is a great casual bag!

    Don’t like it. It’s a black handbag and not even a good looking one at that. It looks like a schoolbag.

    I love simple classic bags but the prices have just become unjustifiable. I went to Paris after college (almost 20 years ago) as a treat and purchased some LV and Hermes items and although they were expensive relative to mainstream goods they were not unfairly priced as couture bags are now. $3,700 for a basic suede handbag is just not sane.
