Galleria or Berkeley


Jan 3, 2009
Hi Ladies!

I'm looking to get my first Azur (I'm usually more of an Ebene or Mono fan but I need a "summer" bag) and am down to either the Galliera GM or Berkeley. I have a couple Speedys but don't like the sag, so the structure of the Berkeley appeals to me, and I love the look of the top-handles. But I also don't have any slouchy/hobos bags, so the Galliera would fill a need, and my primary bags are shoulder bags for convenience like the NF. What do you think? Any favorites? I'm leaning toward unloading one of my Speedy 30s and getting the Berkeley as a replacement (I really don't carry them at all), but I'm not sure that there's enough of a difference to justify an additional $900.

Normally I like the Galliera the best, but for some reason I don't like it in azur, however I LOVE the berkeley. I would go for the azur berkeley, it's gorgeous and perfect for spring/summer! Good luck with your decision!
