SilverFarnThank you! Your 01 black FBF is so gorgeous I notice, you must have quite a bit of beautiful vintage Balenciagas.....!!!
LovelyGarment Thank you! And as always, Thank you for enlarging the photo I used to come here to see your 01 pebbled FBF so many times and now I finally have one!!! I feel very privileged to have this bag!!!
I was feeling the bag-love today and decided to play with my flat brass first bags from the initial season F/W 2001, when the now-famous motorcycle bags debuted. These bags are different than the current machine-made bags and have a unique appearance that suggests hand-crafted of the finest materials by a leather craftsman. Here are my 2001 FBFs:
[F/W '01 Black Caribou Leather Pebbled Le Dix; F/W '01 Chocolate Caribou Leather Pebbled Le Dix; F/W '01 Navy Arena Leather Le Dix]
^ I believe I'm bag-twins with some of you ladies here in this club too
RDCC, beautiful modelling shot of your chocolate pebbled fbf. Did you remove the strap when you carried her? (I use by second season fbf quite often without the strap, it feels like quite a different bag that way.)
I also love your navy fbf. I remember watching that auction and hesitating because a. the strap was missing and b. I wasn't sure I'd wear a navy bag. I so kicked myself for missing out afterwards but am so happy that this lovely bag has found such a nice home.
One day I'd love to be in this club but for now I just admire from afar. Please keep posting!
