popincourt haute or batignolles horizontal

  1. Hi all, I'm considering popincourt haute or batignolles horizontal as my first LV bag. Want to use it as a work bag as well as for casual bag. Which one do you think I should get? I like to put a lot of things in my bag Thanks.
  2. I have both in house right now (my batignolles) and the other I gave to my grandmother. They are both great bags, I'd say the only thing would be if you like zippers or not. I like to just shove stuff into the horizontal, but the haut is more secure :biggrin:
  3. Thanks Noriko! Personally i prefer with zips but horizontal is bigger, can store more things.;) Looks wise which one do you prefer?
  4. I think the haut, only because of those cute little balls on the zip tab :biggrin: I like the shape of the horizontal more though!
  5. i agree with noriko...

    i have a popincourt haut and thought about getting a batignolles, and looks-wise they are both equal to me...i think it's more about style, as far as zippers vs. open larger vs. smaller, etc.
  6. my mom has the popincourt haut and i have the horizontals, so i've tried lugging around both of them. by far, i prefer the horizontals because it's roomier and the shape is much nicer (and, i might add, not so extensively copied as the hauts). but noriko's right. if you wouldn't feel secure without a zipper, then you'd better go for the haut. seriously though, both LOVELY bags with versatility - can be taken anywhere!
  7. Thanks ladies.. I also love the balls of haut and that it has zip but love the shape of horizontal more and that it is roomy... Guess it's a tough choice. btw, do you think the size of horizontal is alright for work?
  8. Lookwise - haut.
  9. I chose the Horizontal because I wanted a bag big enough to tote work files to meetings offsite. I think the BH is perfect for that. The Haute is quite a bit smaller.
  10. I think its big enough but it depends what you're lugging to work. I tried to use it as a school bag but found that it was too small :sad:
  11. The Haut.. cause it's got balls ! ;)

    I don't hate the batignolles vertical, but it just doesn't hold that appeal for me, I much prefer the vertical verson, or even the little original batignoles
  12. I had the same dilemma...First I purchased the popincourt and left it sitting in its dust cover for a few days. Ultimately, the batignolles horizontal won out and I exchanged it. What a great decision! The batignolles goes better with my personal style, and it is sooo roomy that I've even got room for my boyfriend's junk!
  13. Thanks everyone for your advice! It's a tough choice i must say. haha.. Will drop by the shop and try both.. Another bag that i like is the damier speedy. Can't wait for it to be on permanent line.
  14. Just tried on both again today. I bought the horizontal. It's just a bigger bag and I like that the bottom is bigger - I like the way my things sit in a purse that wider opposed to slimmer and taller.
    It's also a little more "structured" looking and I'm pretty casual.
  15. I prefer the design of the Haute.:love:
