I hope to offend no one here.. I have been a big Chloe fan this past year.. But since this forum, I have curiously delved into Balenciaga. However I found the leather to be so delicate, thin and I feel afraid to use my bag as I would in my busy daily life. They are both bags in the $1K range but I don't know if one is more durable than the other. Can anyone with experiences with BOTH Balenciaga and Chloe Paddingtons share what they feel with Balenciaga vs. Chloe?? Thanks and I greatly appreciate everyones true opinions!
