Congratulations ! I'm also thinking about getting the Garden Party, but in size 36 as I would like to use it for travel. How are you experiencing the bag? Any pro's & con's I should know off? :smile:
Mine is the 36. I would say they only negative if using for travel is NO HANDLE.

I have GP36 for couple of years now, rarely using it. I like it being simple design, understated no logo and spacious tote bag. It has a snap bottom closure for extra security but still an open bag so I won’t use it for oversea travel. I just wish the straps are a little bit longer cos at the moment I can carry it on my shoulder only during summertime when not wearing coat but still feeling bit tight touching my armpits. I think it is designed as handheld so having a GP helped me that I definitely won’t be getting a Birkin.

I have a 36 and use it for business travels. it sits perfectly on a cabin trolley and so roomy it easily fit a laptop, passport, A4 folder, phone, wallet and a thin shawl. The biggest issue for me is the weight - very heavy.

Thanks! I have a B25 so top handle isn’t an issue overall. But when travelling, and using the GP as a travel bag, it might be getting very heavy. I emailed my SA to see if I can go check it out in store.
