The PS1 and Chloe paraty are still more aesthetically pleasing than the coco duffle. To me, I don't care if Mary kate has the bag of the moment, but the hype over the coco wouldn't be near what it is if mary kate didn't have it. It would just be another duffle, but ooh! with studs on the bottom. There are cheaper bags (not cheap by any means, but a little less) than the wang bags that are more creative and different. I don't know, I guess I just like bags that are a bit more underground but with great quality, that aren't exactly coveted by the mainstream. Now that Laguna Beach girl is carrying it, I think it lessens the image of the coco bag slightly. In my eyes at least. My opinion only of course.

personally i like "non" creative bags.. that is why i liked the coco, that along with the fact that the leather looks great and simply DO love the studs at the bottom
i really couldnt care less who carries it even if someone i dont know or like carries it does not mean it will look cheap all of a sudden...

i like my bags for myself and buy them for specific reasons not for anything else

My chain strap came today (I ended up switching my order to Barney's because they were ready to ship)



I love it! And the size is good for me, I don't carry that much stuff around in my purses so I don't have any need of a really big bag

Just curious for those who own the donna or the brenda, how sturdy is the leather on the new fall models?

^ I'm not really sure what you mean by sturdy...do you mean like in terms of holding the shape, etc?

I love the concept and the look of the Coco (textured pebbled leather, funky studs on the bottom), but I do have an issue with the size. It looks small on the stock pictures that I have seem so far (e.g shopbop), while it looks so much bigger on the runway. But I guess the fact that the Coco looks like a decent size on Mary-Kate should be an indicator.....

Sorry, my bad English......
What I meant was if the leather is thick or is it really thin, therefore
prone to ripping easily?

^ Ah ok. No it wasn't your English it's fine lol I just didn't know what you meant. It's thicker on the front pockets but the bag itself is thinner. I don't think it'd rip easily though, it's just really soft

the coco is heavy, i cant even imagine what it would be like filled with stuff...i took mine off ebay (fees were too high) and returned it. quality is top notch though and the design is a really cool idea. the handles are short also, but if you are comfortable with hand held i guess its fine...but its like carrying a 15lb. barbell around with you.
