  1. Compliments of member TDL:

    Has anyone noticed that BV brought back the original Pyramid bag? Well, more like a new improved version that would be good news to OP fans out there.


    Comparison: (re-issued vs. new Pyramid)

    1. Shoulder strap: RP is not woven, longer and adjustable. NP is woven on top & not adjustable.
    2. Rings: RP has woven rings like the Sloane (LOVE THIS!). NP has brass rings.
    3. Size: RP is a tad taller. NP is a bit wider. Dimensions for BV site below.
    4. Price: HUGE difference... RP $1580, NP$2250

    RP = 11.3 x 11.7 x 7
    NP = 12.5 x 10.5 x 6.6

    This thread will serve as a quick reference to the differences between the Ball styles: Original Ball, New Ball, and Ball #3.
    I am compiling it from previous threads and member pictures.

    Thread in progress...

    There are two bags that BV has named the Milano.

    The most recent bag, a tote style, was introduced in the F/W 2009 season:
    Zip top closure
    Suede lining with zip and cell phone pockets

    Here is the "Old" Milano bag. This bag was believed to be introduced in 2006-2007. It is more of a Bowler style that came in 2 sizes.

    Uluru Red old Milano Bag, smaller of the two sizes. Picture courtesy of TDL
