I've said it before and I'll say it again--this is my favorite in the SS12 collection! The pictures are so helpful, thank you for posting these! I know how worn out you can get from work travel but we greatly appreciate the effort. It makes a big difference being able to see modeling pics and how the bag hangs.
So, what are your thoughts on this bag? The leather, the design? Do you feel it will be one that you use often? I love the fact that this style can go from the office to walking downtown all day. It seems like a very versatile style.
Circoit, BE offered a complimentary small leather good with a pre-order of SS12 :) It was in an email that came out in November 2011.
Thanks everyone! I am a matte leather lover and THIS is a terrific matte - chewy, thick but not too thick, and made to ultimately puddle. I only have one other black bag but i don't use it very often - however, I envision using this quite often, specifically because it is so changeable. This, too, was my fave style of the new styles and I am very glad I picked it. I would like a nice pucci scarf or something to kick in some color and i do think this would be better in a non-black leather to show off the details on the pockets, etc. Otherwise, I think it's a terrific style.
My only suggestion to BE was to add a zipper to the bottom of the back pocket so that you could unzip it and use the pocket as a flap to slide over a rolling luggage handle so your bag could sit securely on top of your luggage - I have other bags like that and it's a fantastic feature! I think it would be a good BEC option :)
I too am a sucker for pockets - it's what drew me to the bag, that and the domed top :) I've now packed her up and she is perfect - and I'm not even using the back pocket! I don't find her heavy - my RM Nikki hobo seems heavier even though the leather is thinner. I think the mini version would be even lighter so go for it!
