I find it both ugly and attractive at the same time, kind of like Nicholas Cage.
Opinions? Would you buy this for, say, $99?

I think it's ugly, too oblong. And it doesn't look right somehow, all crooked/bunched up edges and all... I hope it's fake because I don't want this to be genuine Prada.

I also second leyla's question...

It looks like you should put your camcorder(circa 1993) in it.

I'd hate to be the one to break it to you, but it is indeed authentic.

Personally I do not like it either.

Perhaps that was the intention?

I could definitely see it being used for that purpose.

i like it, it would make a great messenger
i have a bag at the same shape but its made out of thick 'nylon'
has as many zippers and the side pockets for mobile/change etc

its does look a bit boxy but it may be the angle,
i like 'short' bags with lots of 'compartments' they make my life easier.

for $99, i would certainly get it

I like it too. It looks like it'll be good for practical use.

It is indeed authentic, model number VA0168; it's being sold at a few places online. They also make the exact same shape in nylon.

I'm still thinking about this. It certainly has a severe shape, but somehow that extreme utilitarianness appeals to me. As I said, I find both ugly and attractive at the same time.

There's no way I'd buy it at its $900 list price , but at 1/9th of that price, I'd have to give it some more thought.
