Edith - kind of like a conserv. B-bag City?

  1. Just wondering if anyone else thinks there's a connection between these two. Obviously they're totally different in style - edith has no tassles or grommits - but the essential shape is similar. Plus I think the size is similar too, right? I thought edith was between the city and the work?
     
  2. You know... it never even occurred to me until you posted this. I am a city gal, so I wonder if that's why I am so much liking the edith!
     
  3. They have the same rectangle shape - to be worn on the crook of your arm -

    They're like twins: Edith is the bookish good girl - and the Balenciaga City is the sexy other sister! ha ha
     
  4. I agree with what you're saying! I'm really torn between getting a B-Bag or the Edith. I pre-ordered the Edith just to ensure I have one before I make any decision. I don't own any B-Bags and have only seen 1 IRL that I totally drooled over.
     
  5. Ooh, I like that description! I am so glad for these various threads. I totally didn't even notice that I had to call back about my edith until one of them. All the other ones just said that they will deliver. I just can't wait to get them in. I have 3 colors pre-ordered: grey, whiskey and chamois.

    I just love the B-bags, You can't go wrong with them, USC-girl!
     
  6. ^^Wow you really cornered the market!! All I want is one lonely Whiskey bag!!!

  8. That's exactly what I thought the first time I saw the Chloe ad. I love the Balenciaga (City and Work) but haven't gotten around to getting one. Came close to getting a black Work last December but had just gotten a Paddy then so Balenciaga had to wait. Then I saw the Chloe ad and again now Balenciaga has to wait again. I don't have the Edith yet but hopefully will have it soon. Maybe I will finally get a City or a Work before the end of the year. But I also like the Muse, Stam and pocket Paddy...
     
  9. My S/A at Neimans said the same thing to me. That the Edith was copying the Balenciaga.
     
  10. The Edith is subdued, understated and classy.
    The City is seductive and has pop!
     
  11. ^^See - i'm not crazy!
     
  12. I thought I was the only one that notice that! I realized that I'm drawn to the same bag styles.
     
  13. I have to disagree. The Balenciaga looks like a motorcycle bag. Edith looks more like a hip school bag. I think there is a substantial difference.
     
  14. ^^I see what you're saying. I think they have the same rectangle shape and arm handles - that's all I meant..
