Alaïa Leopard-Print Calf Hair Bag


Love, love, love this bag!! Because of the price I hesitated, and now it’s sold out. I hope this means the economy is picking up because a $4,295 bag is decadent and excessive to say the least. But oh-so worth it for luscious fabulousness. The pony hair and the leopard on a simple frame is as chic and on-trend as they come. This is very reminiscent of the Fendi Peek-a-Boo, but it does not open up on both sides, though it does have two separate interior compartments. The frame opens with tension hinges, so is much easier to operate (it has pull tabs). The classic shape ensures this will be relevant whenever leopard is in, which is every other year, if not EVERY year. Alaïa leopard-print bag on NET-A-PORTER for $4,295. I have not heard if NET-A-PORTER will restock, but I will update if they do or if O find this anywhere else.

  1. Beautiful bag. I would love an all leather version. This looks a great alternative to the Fendi Peekaboo which I find a little too big for me.

  2. Great find, Kelly. But, I think I actually prefer the Peekaboo which has the advantage of a great (but subtle) hardware which this bag seems to lack. Leopard PRINT clasp? I don’t think so! Plus, the Peekaboo has fun interiors, especially the leopard ponyhair which I’ve seen in a red or logo-print.
