Hi all, I'm considering popincourt haute or batignolles horizontal as my first LV bag. Want to use it as a work bag as well as for casual bag. Which one do you think I should get? I like to put a lot of things in my bag Thanks.

I have both in house right now (my batignolles) and the other I gave to my grandmother. They are both great bags, I'd say the only thing would be if you like zippers or not. I like to just shove stuff into the horizontal, but the haut is more secure :biggrin:

my mom has the popincourt haut and i have the horizontals, so i've tried lugging around both of them. by far, i prefer the horizontals because it's roomier and the shape is much nicer (and, i might add, not so extensively copied as the hauts). but noriko's right. if you wouldn't feel secure without a zipper, then you'd better go for the haut. seriously though, both LOVELY bags with versatility - can be taken anywhere!

The Haut.. cause it's got balls ! ;)

I don't hate the batignolles vertical, but it just doesn't hold that appeal for me, I much prefer the vertical verson, or even the little original batignoles

I had the same dilemma...First I purchased the popincourt and left it sitting in its dust cover for a few days. Ultimately, the batignolles horizontal won out and I exchanged it. What a great decision! The batignolles goes better with my personal style, and it is sooo roomy that I've even got room for my boyfriend's junk!

Just tried on both again today. I bought the horizontal. It's just a bigger bag and I like that the bottom is bigger - I like the way my things sit in a purse that wider opposed to slimmer and taller.
It's also a little more "structured" looking and I'm pretty casual.
