Roger Vivier Cabas Prismick Lambskin Bag ReviewThursday, February 27, 2014
I have been obsessing Paris designer label Roger Vivier's (pronounced as Ro-jey Veev-yeh) Prismick collection for months and months now ever since this photo of Tiffany Zhang was posted in the internet carrying a Roger Vivier Mustard Yellow Prismick Cabas bag.

It took months to put away some moolah to get my hands on this bag, but after a few months, my friend was able to locate the color I have been looking for in their Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré store in Paris.

I didn't get this on sale this time. This retails in Hong Kong at HK$26,700 where labels are much more expensive. It's a little less expensive in Paris where I got it. The reason why I told you the Hong Kong price it's because Roger Vivier is very big in Beijing right now where they just opened a flagship store last March 2013.
The dust bag is made from thick silk fabric stamped with the Roger Vivier logo in deep red.
This is a photo of the grommet where the chain is attached to. I love how each of these grommets are stamped with the RV logo.
Perfectly aligned on the inside of the bag as well, the thick leather layers are stitched together.
Here is a photo of the bottom of the bag. You can see the perfect mirror images of Prismick patterns that are perfectly aligned. This bag doesn't have feet so it can easily get wet on a bathroom counter. So I just carry it on my shoulders when I am washing my hands.

A single magnetic closure in the middle is perfectly placed in the center of the bag. You will be able to notice that everything is strategically placed where everything is aligned. The magnetic closure is placed int he middle where the point of the leather meets, and the two steel buttons with an RV logo on them is also placed in the middle of each prism. Everything is perfectly aligned.
Here is my Roger Vivier Cabas Prismick bag in action. You can wear it like a handbag or a shoulder bag because the straps are right in the middle where it is not too short nor is it too long. Even though this bag has a gold chains, it is not too dressy for the day. It actually dresses up any outfit you have on!
Pardon my Spanx! It's peeking. Hahaha!
I took this photo when I just got home from a Maybelline event. Thank you to Maybelline's Chief Makeup Artist Archie Tolentino for my beautiful eye makeup! I can't to review those eyeshadows too! WATCH OUT FOR IT! Yay!
