Is the zip-bottom bag the new fad for 2006?

Fear the Year of the Zipper!

(I'm really not feeling this. Especially the Dior. It looks like a portrait of the Hamburgler.)

How do you use that section? If you open it while the bag is on your arm, everything tumbles to the ground and how would you rezip it? If you are meant to sit, put the bag on your lap, open the section, etc, etc, etc, sounds like too much work!

I'm not feeling that first bag either...YUK!!! Even the paddie for that matter. I won't be carrying that look. I actually find my Spy awkward to get in and out of it; I can't imagine zipping the bottom. Thank goodness there is a bag I'm not lusting after.:lol:

I've only seen that look on travel bags - you can stick your shoes in there. Something tells me that shoes don't fit into those bags ;)

I had thought that version of the Dior was sort of a travel/cosmetics case, not a handbag. Seems too unwieldy.

I actually like the new Chloe. The zip-bottom makes it more casual looking. I want to see it in other colors when it comes out. :love:

The Paddington is so nice and slouchy. What does that sorta rigid zipper around the bottom do? Doesn't it hamper the slouchiness and keep it more structured?
