They are gross, imo.

My Mum has one, it is horrid. Looks like the bastard love child of the 80's bumbag.

yes they are very ugly, and extremely popular in Belgium - I think it may be a belgian brand.They are not cheap. I will ask dh to explain the gorilla.

They look like they'd be stylish in Belgium.

belgo Thu 02-Oct-08 08:35:02

hmm Nomdeplume - not sure what to make of that comment!

I think they are American

I've got a Kipling backpack and I think it is quite stylish. Don't know if thats because I live half an hour's drive from Belgium or because all the previous backpacks I have owned have come from the camping shop.grin

The gorilla is great for keeping DCs amused.

Don't know what their handbags are like.

They're horrible. Do not see the appeal.

just checked wikipedia, here and it does seem that it is a belgian brand. hmm at the comparison to prada.
