I came across the Kooba Meredith bag in Slate Grey at NM last week and immediately added that bag to my "Most Wanted" list. I checked around TPF and read a few posts about this bag, and while I didn't really learn anything new about the bag, I noticed that the flap opening & pushlock closure of the bag seemed to be of some concern to most. While looking at a few pics online, it came to mind that this bag looks a lot like the Miu Miu Coffer bag (in fact, I think I saw the Meredith bag in a mag a while ago and thought the same thing). I have been quietly obsessing about a Coffer bag since I first saw it on the cover of WWD last year, but at $1200+ know it's probably a bag I'll never own. The Kooba Meredith seems like a nice alternative. The thing I wonder about is this - The Coffer bag is widely popular. Sold out everywhere. People who own the bag seem to love it, while many others (like myself), look on in awe, wishing for the day that they can own one too. The flap top and pushlock doesn't seem to be a problem for owners of the Coffer. Is the pushlock on the Meredith so drastically different? Is it that much harder to operate? I'm just curious if anyone else sees the similarities between these two bags and has any thoughts on the subject? While there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of Meredith owners out there, I'm sure there are some Coffer owners who might be able to shed some light on the flap top/pushlock debate. (I ordered the Meredith and it should be here by the end of the week, so I can give a more definitive response by then).
