Hello all
I wanted to share some pics of the Brera bag I received. I was in two minds about this one but on inspection, I like it!
Do you have any experience with this bag? Is it practical and durable? Is it timeless?

Any opinions appreciated. Thanks

Wow, that's a nice bag. I can see this being a major work bag... Organized, easy to carry...

How is the weight? That's a primary consideration for me. I'm typically not a compartment girl but I admit the Brera has tempted me. Are the pockets easy to get in and out of?

Hello grietje. Weight can be an issue for me too. It's not heavy at all. It's also not really compartments. Most of the space is on the centre. The zips at the edges are just pockets so it can work.
The pockets are side zipper compartments. Their zipper is slightly shorter than main compartment but still easy to access. They are full length of bag. It's a great idea.
You have made me think so I will place my contents inside and see if it does get heavy. Thanks

It's very organised, also beautiful with the degrade colour which reminds me of Prada a few years ago. It's a going out for the day bag for me but it could be great for the work commute. I work in a lab so lovely bags stay home from my workplace :smile::smile:

Looks lovely! Can you carry on your shoulder?
Hi thanks I can carry it on the shoulder and that was an issue for me. I can't manage without shoulder carry. It sits close under the arm though but that is good for security. I think it comes in two sizes and from what I have seen it comes in two sizes.

Just bought this Brera bag and I'm not totally sure about it - love the color and the leather quality is great. Supposedly goat leather, soft and tough. The design is practical and useful. The style... It's a combination of structured and squishy...

Brera, front view
I'm crazy about the color!! What's your hesitation? Too dressy? Shoulder strap too short? I've been eying this bag for some time but haven't taken the plunge. What made you dive in? And what is giving you pause?

Glad that you started this thread. I am intrigued by Brera bag too. I tried the Spring/Summer '15 Brera in Flamingo and Burnt Red the other day. It is elegant, just not sure of the colors.

I have not seen the bag in medium grey in real life however. Looks pretty.
