Can the Trapeze be carried when the flap is opened? (Similar to how you can cold an Hermes Kelly when it is not closed)

Or is this bag a strictly open, close, carry type bag? :biggrin:

I would say it’s okay to carry not buckled on the front flap but as long as the wings are clasped together and the zipper is closed; with the zipper open the wings will likely unclasp and it’ll kind of be hard to manage and hang open a lot. But if keep the zipper partially zipped and the wings clasped you should be secure enough to not lock the front. If that makes sense lol. :biggrin:

I find with mine (which I tend to wear with the wings tucked in, currently) if the weight distribution is off wearing it shoulder-strapped with the clasp open will ease the zip open. That said - it's not that hard to get the knack of opening it one-handed, and it just looks better (and happier) with the flap clasped.

Thank you! I saw someone say this exact thing in a YouTube video about it. I have a recent obsession with the bag :eek: just deciding on size and colour before I purchase.

I was aware of the problems people had with it falling open when carrying or trying to get something out of before i purchased and was worried as well, but it is very easy to work around. I’ve had mine maybe 2 years and am still very happy with it! What color(s) are you thinking of ? :biggrin:

That's good! Do you find that the bag looks tired or does it still look good? I have a Mini Luggage in tan from 2013 and it still looks amazing - same with my black/white Mini Luggage (also from 2013 I think).

Here are my two favourites so far. I usually don't like the multicolour, but I really love this combination. Which colour do you have? Screenshot 2021-07-25 at 18.03.05. Screenshot 2021-07-25 at 18.03.22.
