is the Downtown bag worth reconsidering?

  1. Many of us--me included--responded with a "YUCK" :yucky: when pics were first posted on tPF a while back of the new YSL Downtown bags. The shape is unusual--someone said it resembled a maxipad with wings, I think!

    Now I'm wondering if its worth giving this bag a second look. Has anybody seen it IRL? Is it growing on anybody? :s

    Here are more pics from style.com and NM...

  3. seen 'em at the boutique but didn't hold them.. but then i looked at them in the look books and they looked really cool.. but i saw that the bottoms were sagging in some of the runway pics.. i think they may look a bit different when held. jury is still out on this one for me..
     
  4. YESYESYES..... i am dying for the downtown!!!

    in black deer!!!!!
    i used to hate the zippers in the front but that has really grown on me and the one i have my eye on does have them (there also is one without but i think the zippers are really cool now)......i am LOVING it.....ugh!!
    i cannot wait to try it on......but i know i won't be able to resist buying...:ninja: :love:

  5. ^^^Well, if you get one of these bags brian, please post pics so we can all see it on a real person! I think it comes in a medium and large size, and I'm curious to see how big it is, and whether the bottom really sags...
     
  6. I dont mind it.
     
  7. the bottom definitely does sag, but i don't hate it that much..... and i think the sag all depends on what material it is. on thicker ones like ostrich it isn't as bad.

  8. I think I need to see this IRL. For some reason YSL bags always look different on line to me.
     
  9. Not liking it too much. May change my mind once I see in IRL.
     
  10. Cosmo I'm telling you that bag looks like a tote bag that's been squished under your arm.
     
  11. ^^^lol
     
  12. .....still LOVING the downtown....

    i probably won't see one in person until july when i go to new york though :crybaby:
     
  13. ^ I think the heat is warping your brain.

    The YSL on 57th is pushing it like crazy, they're all scattered around, in the MENS RTW section for some reason. It's a severly fug bag.
     
  14. for me....not so much.
     
  15. I think tall girls will definitely pull it of..
    It looks nice on metallic and patent leathers.
