"Classic" Soprano Scores Another Win
from Halifax NS
Just received this bag and cannnot understand why it hasn't fully sold out yet. It is a classic Soprano style which I know I will be wearing for years.This is the REAL Soprano quality many of us love and the bag shows meticulous attention to detail. For me, the last two Showstoppers just haven't measured up Sopeano's superio standard. This bag certainly does. The leather is strong; but very supple and makes a structured bag look more casual and less formal. For this reason I would consider this an "ageless" bag. i am very impressed by the security of the stitching around the handles. One can certainly load up this bag and not have to worry about pulling the handles out of shape. The zipper closure is also tighter and more secure than it has been on some other Soprano bags. This is a big plus whether you are just out shopping or are on a trip.The only negative i can find is the length of the opening. Although the bag is commodious, the zipper might have been designed to allow the bag to have an longer opening. This design chance would have made it easier to access bulkier items. overall a lovely, classic bag.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A Really Great Bag!!!
I just love love this teal satchel with the bucket style!!! The strap is wide to hold or put over your shoulder, and it is not too big-a nice smallish medium size that will not be overpowering to have on your arm!It is a soft leather and is very classy!Have had mine for a few months now and is as good as the first day I got it!!

LOVE this bag! ;-)
I have a dozen Soprano bags...I bought this satchel in brown and plum and absolutely LOVE the colours and especially the croco embossing...They are definitely two of my favorites in my collection of over 40 purses, I am not disappointed at all...and wish I had gotten one in red as well! ;-) Can't wait to see what Sylvia comes up with in 2011... ;-)

Nice bag, but what's that smell?
I got the satchel in teal, and although it is a beautiful bag, it has been sitting on the shelf for over a month to "air out". I have purchased another Soprano bag - not a showstopper and way more money, and the bag smells deliciously like leather. This smell is certainly not a leather smell, and the bag has so far been unusable.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My exepectation were higher
I have watched the soprano handbags for quite awhile before I purchased this one as a ss in August. I was delighted to purchase it as I had wanted one for a long time.However once I recieved this bag I was not impressed. The leather was not as soft and supple and I was led to believe. (I do own another leather bag so I know what to feel) and once you put a coat on you cannot put the bag over your shoulder. I was so excited with this purchase and so dissapointed once it arrived. I sent it back.Sylvia did mention with her last visit that she changed leathers a few months back to a great dissapointment to her and readily changed back to the first supplier. I wonder if this was one of those bags.So with that comment I though lets give her another chance as almost all testimonials RAVE about her bags so I purchased the November ss. I hope I am not dissapointed!

from Canada,NL,CONCEPTION BAY SOUTH
Hello,I purchased the red satchel and the plum bag. Both are beautiful in style. The plum is vibrant and shows the embossing details exceptionally well. The red is perfect for me - deep and rich but not too bright and over powering. it is my first foray into a red handbag and I couldn't be more pleased with the result. The accent croco embossing adds a lovely stylish touch to the look of both bags. I hope that Sylvia will continue to add such beautiful details to her future styles. As usual the quality of workmanship and materials is stunning, especially at the price offered!There are two issues that I have with the plum bag and one that I also have with the red satchel. The common problem to both bags is the gap at each end where the zipper meets the bag. Smaller items can indeed fall out through these gaps. I am keeping these bags, anyway, because I adore the styles and colors, but this will limit my use of the bags, unfortunately. Furthermore, the plum bag style strap is too short and not adjustable, despite the way it looks with the loop through the grommets on the bag. This is very disapointing as a few more inches on the narrow strap or adjustable attachments would have made all the difference to the functionality of the bag for over the shoulder use. I would love to see another similar bag with a longer, adjustable strap.

a bit disappointed
I have 3 other Soprano handbags and love them. I purchased the bag style in plum. I love the color. However I ended up sending the bag back. In my haste to get the showstopper I didn't realize a few details on this purchase until after I got it home. The strap wasn't adjustable. It just didn't work for me. And there was an opening at the end of the bag where the zipper meets the strap. Things tend to fall out on me I've learned in the past, so that was an issue. Also no outside zippered pocket on either side of the bag, means opening the bag every time to get keys or whatever, another issue for me.So I decided to return it. Not every style is going to work for everyone. Maybe I should have ordered the satchel one instead. Oh well, I still love Soprano bags and look forward to the next showstopper.
I look forward to Sylvia's visits because I love her styles and the quality of her leathers. I must have over 10 bags. I bought this bag in pewter in the bucket bag style when it was a SS for myself and bought the teal one for my mom. We both love them so much. This bag in particular is probably my favourite because of the croco embossing on the bottom and on the handle which looks so stylish. I'm in my 20s and my mom is in her 50s and we both carry this bag and it is age appropriate for both of us. We always watch Sylvia's shows together and always end up purchasing something. The quality of her leather and the workmanship is simply amazing. I've never ever had a problem or complaint with any of my bags from Soprano.
A lot of style in one bag!
I ordered this bag style in the plum colour. It is a very practical size for everday use; it holds a lot and has the usual Soprano inside zipped and open pockets, which are so practical and convenient. The colour is vibrant and eye-catching, and the croco accents are fun and classy - looking. This bag is beautifully made with exceptional leather and hardware - a perfect example of Soprano quality! I'm never disappointed...

I purchased the summer satchel with side pockets and front flap in white for the summer, in July/10. Since I am on a tight family budget, I was curious. I am hard to impress, I was impressed with this satchel. Another black bag of the same style popped into the system, and I ordered it, unfortunately my order was cancelled before I was notified that there was a problem and I lost the opportunity. When this satchel came up (a similar style). I ordered it in black and one in brown for a Christmas gift. I was disappointed, although the leather is good quality, the inside is such that you can see what you are looking for,and the handle is good length; BUT the side pockets are closed with magnetic closure,and not zipper, I had a problem with items stored in the side pockets falling out. Since I am already using the black bag, I kept it, but I sent the brown one back.
