  1. I have been admiring the YSL ROADY FLAP BAG in black since it came out this fall. Are there any owners of this bag out there that can give me some feedback as to how easy it is use? Does it keep its shape? Overly heavy? Is the flap annoying to lift to get into the bag? I LOVE THE LOOK OF IT, and as some of you may know I am a big BV fan, but I am seeking a bag with more structure.. To me it has the look of an HERMES Kelly..Any thoughts or suggestions? TIA

    Well I am probably not the best person to ask because I bought two of them!!

    It was my favorite bag of 2009. I am going to see if I can dig up the thread I posted when I bought my first one...

    Here's the thread from when I bought #2

    Some other questions you asked...

    How easy to use -- easy!
    Keep its shapre -- yes, although it is a soft bag
    Overly heavy -- it is lightweight
    Flap annoying -- it hasn't been for me


    It does have the look of a kelly, but a much softer look. The leather is beautiful, although there were some people the season before that had trouble with the same leather on the Besace.
     
  3. Wow, what a chic bag!
     
  4. thanks ssc0619- wow! what a thorough response! I see you must be in love as you have two!..Do you switch her around with your BV's, or is this a workhorse bag for now?
     
  5. it is my dream bag :biggrin: in red it is just too perfect
     
  6. lol--you know I have too many bags! So these two just go into the rotation with the BV's. For the most part I switch out bags every Sunday night. Some bags make it into the rotation a lot more than the others and these two certainly fit that bill!
     
  7. i love roady flap...very classic and elegant.
     
  8. Does anyone know where I might find this bag?
    TIA
     
  9. ^It seemed to be produced in only limited quantities, because it was relatively hard to find one last fall even though it was quite popular. The rumor is that YSL is re-releasing the bag for this fall but I haven't seen any available yet.

    I absolutely love this bag! I couldn't find it anywhere though so I really do hope they are re-releasing it this fall. It's the kind of bag that would look lovely in any color.

    Does anyone know if it can be worn on the shoulder? If so, does it fit well (meaning not too snug on the shoulder) and does the strap stay put? TIA!

    Edit: Ah, nm. Found all the answers here: http://forum.purseblog.com/yves-saint-laurent/flap-bag-arrived-today-522402.html - which I read a while ago and totally forgot about. I guess the Roady Flap is just on my mind today!
     
  11. In deal and steals thread someone posted it was in the outlet. This bag is really stunning and I hope it gets released.
