I'm not digging it at all. I think if I was going for something like that I'd get the BV first. The part I dislike the most is the swirl of the woven leather and I'm not sure what to make of the handle too.
Thanks for the input! I was trying to figure out what the hype was around the bag and whether or not it was worth getting. I've seen it on sale for just under $300 and was wondering whether I should snag it . . .
I think it's an ok bag. I actually like the buckles on the side - gives it a more interesting design. Otherwise, it'd just be a bit dull for me. Although, not really liking the black. If it came in red, say, or yellow, then it'd be much more appealling to me)
I have this bag in dark brown. I love it - The leather is not thin at all. It has become nicer over time. I get tons of compliments each time I use it as well. I own the large size and it is big and roomy on the inside, yet when i wear it on the shoulder it downsizes with such a nice drape.
