I've just been reading an interview by Sara Harris and Johnny Coca in May's edition of Vogue magazine and it described the new design of the Bayswater and here are some of the new features. The internal pocket is now on the inside front of the bag, saves fumbling around says Johnny and he said the former was irritating to get to! The leather looks infinitely more expensive than the old version (which old version I ask)? The handles stand up on the new one, whereas the old handled version flopped down to reveal the ugly root of the handles at the base, I guess that's where the handles join the bag! The postman's lock plate is smaller, ' why have it any bigger' he says and the interior straps have been done away with because 'no-one' ever used them! Apparently the new version is SO improved it makes the old version look like A FAKE that's been picked up on New York's Canal Street (wherever that is)? Well ladies, I'll let you make up your own minds but for me, I'm sticking with what I love and that 'the old ones are the best!'
