I love these bags. But yes, they are everywhere.

Ughh... these bags make me sick! I go to Drexel U in Philly and every girl, who thinks she is super cool has one, and my own opinion... I think they look like something an old lady should have! Not someone who is 21!

these are the ones we are talking about, no?

EDIT: I see them everywhere! college, streets, airports, restaurants, clubs... it's insane!
Those bags are actually vile.
Are they nylon?
How much are they?

Somebody asked me via PM to post pics of my Pliage so I thought why not post them here. I don't see how this bag can be counterfeited (sp?) because it's super cheap and available... but you never know this day LOL

Crying Diamonds they are either nylon or leather, though the handles are always leather. as i said they're really cheap, around $100 for the largest one. They're actually perfect for the office, i can fit my entire wardrobe in there lol

Sorry for the bad photshop job

As you can see it is and looks cheap. The alignment of the handles is not that perfect at all.

I hope you enjoyed them. As said before, if you need a roomy tote that can hold 10lbs without ripping appart its handles for very little money, then this is your bag. I really cannot see it as a fashion handbag or why anybody would think it's a cool thing to be carrying it, though.

My £5 Liberty tote looks better made and is so much prettier.

LOL I have two, one in an olive green and one in black. I like them because they are all-weather friendly...But then again I still carry a Kate Spade messenger so my fashion may be questionable at best, LOL!

i love them. i have a red large long handle that i used to use for school books. i need something that can handle dirt and i don't have to worry about knocking around. especially when i need to throw things like horse boots and half chaps in!

I have one and use it lots as it goes with just about everything. I see this around very rarely where I live, but in France that's a completely story. Nearly everyone seems to carry it there.

Bringing back an old thread here...

As annoying as it is that they are everywhere, I'm thinking of getting one—the Planetes Tonal in black; it's basically the same as the Pliage but the handles are black too so it's not quite the bag that everybody else has.

I'm trying to choose between two sizes, this (smaller) and this (larger). I want it to fit a standard 8 1/2 x 11 inch folder; the first one I've linked to says it's 10 x 13 in the dimensions, but because of the shape I'm not sure whether it would actually fit a folder. Anybody know?

that being said, they are great school bags/beer carriers as someone else mentioned haha. i dont think they're particularly hideous at all..
i lived in switzerland for about 3-4 years as well and yeah it was the biggest trend..and i think it was fine for school cause it was a designer bag that you could actually fit your stuff nto and wouldnt care if you got the bag dirty or u got wear and tear because of carrying heavy books cause after all the bags not expensive at all.i dont mind them really. not my fave bag, its nothing special...but i still use mine to work when i have to carry loads..

oh and yeah it wasnt a big trend in london when i moved here, but lately ive been seeing more and more of these bags..
