Are Givenchy Pandoras still popular nowadays? I went to my local boutiques and realised that only 1 or 2 pandoras are displayed nowadays.

How is the wear & tear? I'm thinking of getting the medium as my first designer because I'm just in love with how it looks, but worried about there's only one arm strap and plus the shoulder strap is also on the same side. Doesn't that put a lot of strain on the leather?

I don't really want to baby my bag, so I don't want to be too concerned about carrying a laptop in it or something like that...

They're less front and center, but Givenchy still makes them, as far as I know. They've been around a long time, so they're not popular like a trendy bag per se, but people are still discovering them.

Wear and tear is great, but ymmv. I alternate my bags often, and so far, all my bags, including the pandora, look like new. This applies to both pepe and goat leathers of the pandora.

The crossbody strap and handle strap are both super sturdy. I've crammed lots of stuff in my bag before, but never a laptop, and never on a daily basis. My face is the medium. Wonderful wonderful bag. Functional, cool looking and holds a lot. Unique even after being around since 2000's.

I have had one for about six years and use it a lot. it still looks great, i like that its a change from the usual top handle or flap bags and that its not a bag that other brands have their own version of.

Looking to buy my first (I'm slow) Pandora, is there anyone who is petite and has the large that can post a pic? I've been searching the threads but it's not easy to tell how tall people are...is the large too big for me at 5'2"? TIA!

Do you really want the large ? It's huge ... Why not the medium ?Or the small , it holds a lot
Some pics from the web :

This is the medium (35 x 21 x 16 cm )
Thanks for the pics, I did search online before I posted but am confused re: sizing. The bag I’m looking at states 15” x 11” x 7” which doesn’t sound nearly as huge as some of the photos I’ve seen. The store sent a mod shot, see below, looks more medium to me but not according to the measurements? Which was why I was hoping for a mod shot from someone here...

OK still confused, from what I gather this is the older style due to the front pocket not being a zippered one, and at that time would have been considered the medium? Every measurement I see seems different, and the measurements between the mediums and larges seem to be only a couple inched in width?
