the thing on her lap could be it...



"Coppola wanted a day bag that was "chic, discreet and lightweight and that isn't enormous," adding that "it is hard to find bag without a lot of hardware."" -- Sofia Coppola in an IHT interview, about a collection of bags and shoes she's designing for Louis Vuitton, to launch next spring.

Sounds like me on my quest to find a decent black leather bag for lugging stuff around. I haven't found one that a) doesn't cost my entire monthly paycheck; b) is inexpensive, but also appears to be made of something just slightly better than a plastic supermarket carrier; c) isn't ginormous; d) laden with unnecessary pockets, compartments, zips, buckles, straps et al or e) idiotically designed on the inside and missing the necessary inner pockets and slots to allow some semblance of order.

Maybe Sofia Coppola will induce me to actually step into Louis Vuitton and check something out. I have never been compelled to go in to buy or look at something for myself. Wish I could get a better look of the bag she's holding there, but it looks promising enough...

I feel exactly as you do. I hope these bags draw me to LV. I also hope they're done in different colors, but I'm not holding my breath.

kenneth cole new york (though their website isnt the best example right now), cole haan, furla, and lupo barcelona may carry the type of bag that you're looking for. i have many kenneth cole new york bags and i find the bags are excellent and discreet. though some bags can be a bit heavy.
