      I have this bag for almost 7 months and i used it everyday and i have to admit that until now the handle is really hard and when you put heavy stuff my shoulder is in pain :( but the style? 100% gorgeous! When i am in public every women’s eyes are on it :)

        i agreed with you not to happy with the handle.

    The handle is a bit stiff but I added a long strap to mine to use it as a satchel as well. That gives it versatility and looks adorable that way as well.

    Hi,

    I'm in love with the Artsy Monogram & the Galliera Damier Ebene. I would love to here from someone who has one already.

    The Galliera seems a bit stiff and City Chic while the Artsy seems more casual i could be going to work or out for lunch with a friend?? is this the general consensus?

    Help!

  • Anonymous

    I've tried it on, the canvas is actually really really soft, and it will only get softer over time. The handle was sooooo uncomfortable, but i was assured that IT WILL SOFTEN.!!!

    This is my fav bag. I actually find the handle pretty comfortable. It doesn't slip & stays on your shoulder. It's more comfortable than my speedy. My arm starts to hurt after couple of hours with speedy. I tend to put a lot in my purse. The MM is the perfect size. I LVOE this bag!!!

    • teresa

      does your bag have a code inside?

  • Anonymous

    The handel is not as bad as everyone says. It might get a little uncomfortable after 3-4 hours of carrying it. What I like about is that it stays on your shoulder and doesn't move. You can buy the speedy strap for it. You get 2 very different styles. They are about $200-$250

    The GM is way too big. Looks like a luggage. The MM is a size of a large bag. They should have made a PM as well.

    I really want to get it but a bit hesitate as some of you state that it's heavy and the handle is uncomfortable. Is it really that heavy?

  • Anonymous

    I bought the GM and it is on the large size. I'm 5' 6" with an average frame and it does seem large. The MM was similar to the Deauville I have but I wanted one a lil bigger. I would recommend the MM for someone unless u like very large bags. I don't think they will make a PM due to the handle length. It would basically sit right under ur arm and be uncomfortable. Just look at the measurements for comparison and decide what's best for your body type. :o)
    The handle does soften a little over time but still maintains some structure. I never found it uncomfortable at all.
    Hope this helps..

    Yes it's heavier and more uncomfy to carry than the Neverfull (I have the GM) but it's still worth it though.
    I got the Arsty in MM, I find the GM a little too big for me, I'm 5'7 120lbs.

    I love the design. When down to store and tried it on my shoulder. I felt really uncomfortable with it. I have to hold the handle each time I do the "walking". Guess I rather wait for the "delightful" bag in JUNE. I guess the LV delightful has a more friendly strap.

    I just bought the artsy last week in atlanta, and love it. The handle is a bit hard, but the salesman said many women have come back and told him it did soften very quickly. I think this is the coolest, chicest bag and updates every outfit. I bought the mm, which is the perfect size for me, at 5'10". Although I do tend to spend alot on bags, this is the first LV I have been unable to resist because of that very cool handle. I'm in love…..

    hello gals,
    i just bought my wife an artsy gm–she’s 5’8 1/2. not sure if i should exchange it for an mm because of the size? but, in comparison, the gm is only 1.6 inches longer, 1.5 inches taller, and .4 inches wider. thus, not too much of a difference in size.

    any advice from ladies who are about her height?

    thanks!

    I am 5′ and love the MM, however, I have been going on the site for 2 months and it has been sold out. I have called around to all the stores within a 100 mile range and they say it is sold out nation wide??? First question, would I be too short to stress over the anticipation and does anyone know why the majority of all the handbas from the LV site are out of stock?

    My hubby just bought me an Artsy MM too few days ago. I am hesitating at first between Artsy MM, Galliera GM, Delightful GM & Stressa GM

    I find Delightful GM is too big & the shape doesn’t look good when I am carrying it. Galliera GM not too bad but it was 2 years back design. My hubby said Stressa looks old on me.

    Finally I made my decision on Artsy MM which is big enough for me although I thought of getting a GM but is really too big on me even I am pregnant now with 165cm & 68kg. I really glad I bought Artsy & I just love it now!!!

    To all of you:
    @Nov1, 2011 Artsy has been released in Damier Azur canvas, as well as a few new colors in Monogram Empreinte.

    For the ones who don’t know the Monogram Empreinte yet:
    Calfleather, released Nov 2010, fashionable bags and wallets ( new design bags, wallet and colors @Nov1, 2011)
    Artsy Empreinte is only available in MM … plus the handdle has been improved, soft and very comfortable/flexible!
    Btw I have been told by an SA that one (Artsy)handdle will take about nine hrs to complete, how about that?
    Amazing isn’t it?!!

    For the person who was asking about Galliera: this does NOT excist in Damier Ebene canvas.
    Only in Monogram & Damier Azur;)

    Information about preparring is correct:
    Canvas & leather items are preparred in France Spain USA, even in Italy (shoes), Switserland (watches)

    I LOVE a big purse, though I am only 5’4″! I have the Artsy GM and the monogram on it is very soft(almost has a rubebr feel which was very different than how the monogram purses feel; had me wondering about it’s authenticy becaus eit was so soft) and I LOVE it! I decided on the Monogram GM because I would like the Monogram Empreinte in Ombre, so I didn’t want the same size. My Sweetie gave me the Delightful GM for my birthday in February. I travel quite a bit and I like the larger purses because I can use them like a carryon and get all the things I want immediate acess to inside. I have the iPad case inside, a travel pillow/blanket set etc. and it is very accomodating. With so many restrictions on the number of carryons, it allows me to get away with briging on a little more.
