I see your enthusiasm about RM all over these boards, and would like to know, WHY???? I guess I just don't get it.... I have seen the Matinee in pictures and IRL, and it looks OK, but more or less like an ordinary satchel. The leather IRL is nice, but not enough to make me jump, because of the somewhat mundane style. I have an open mind, and have several bags from different designers, but have yet to leap into the Minkoff fray, and want to know what I am missing. Please enlighten me!!!!!!
