I went to the LV boutique with intentions of buying the Hampstead MM, but ended up with the Galliera instead. I love shoulder bags, and this one just didn't sit well against my body. It has a big bottom, square, and unfortunately I realized it wasn't for me! I LOVE the azur though. If you like hand carried bags the PM is really cute, but for me with kids it's just easier to do shoulder carry.
I'm half half on this bag. On the one hand, it does indeed look like a gorgeous bag, versatile and very easy to use. But what I don't like about it is when you expand it, and unbutton the snaps, I think the bag looks kinda ugly with the snaps on the sides showing. Does that make sense? That was really the only reason I didn't end up buying it and went for my speedy instead. Other than that, great bag!
I like this bag, maybe I will get it in few months, but I like the bigger version. The only disadvantage is that it does not close, but you can always put a big make-up bag inside and store your things there, this is what I usually do for safety
I went into LV with the intention of buying the Saleya (MM or GM) and I ended up walking out with the Hampstead MM in ebene instead. I absolutely love the bag! I like that if I unbutton the two sides, then it is sort of like the shape of the Saleya...so it's like 2 bags in one!
