A Piece of Bal History...Pre-Moto Line BIN 549 SB449

  1. Wow, love the listing! Good luck with your sale Mimi!! :heart:
  2. Good luck Mimister!
  3. prety pretty bag! i wish it wasn't suede though :p
  4. That is beautiful. I love how it says Balenciaga on the front.
  5. Too bad I just put myself on a shopping ban:crybaby:
  6. Yes, it's different, aaa! :yes: This one has a pedigree, not to mention slightly different construction. I don't know if you saw my post about the previous one that was listed - interesting pre-moto bag - this one is definitely from the Italian workshop, and has all its papers and tags.
  7. ^^ gotcha, thanks LP!!! :smile:
  8. Thanks LP! Yeah, this is definitely the real deal - it is so interesting to see the original flat brass hardware on this bag from way back when! This one actually also came directly from Italy, and is just a pretty cool piece of history -- the tags are really one of a kind to me, I just love the wording, and it is so cool to see the motorcycle inspiration before the moto that we know today was actually produced!

    I actually was given one of the old Loehmann's bags, so it is really funny that you mention those. It's a pretty odd bag, that I have at this point thrown to the back of my closet since there is not much else I can do with it :lol:. It's definitely verrrry different from this one - silver flat hardware, etc, definitely not the same species as the authentic bags that came from the factory in Italy. ;)
  9. This bag is so super cool!
  10. ^ thanks elle! :love: it is pretty darn cool if i do say so myself :shame:
