Hey there! I just bought a Balenciaga mini city that is unused and brand new. Just kept stuffed since using it. The leather is goatskin. My question - is a brand new bag supposed to sag like this? Considering that it’s Chevre and not lambskin. Many thanks!

My metallic edge mini-city is chevre and doesn't sag like that after several months.

Hey there! Thanks for the reply. I’ve thoroughly no idea why it’s Like this then. Can you kindly send a photo of how your mini edge looks like? Thanks

I'm no expert but I think soft leather will do this. It's not a structured bag. Will see what others here say. Love that color
Hey there! I am super puzzled as well! Is a 2018 bag. So she said that she had bought it in 2019 but kept it until now - stuffed. The rest of the bag looks unused but I am shocked and surprised that the bag would sag like that.

Will take a pic and post it when I get home. Looks like she didn't use nearly enough stuffing in it when storing it.

I agree that it looks as if the seller didn't stuff the bag enough when storing it, so it was able to sag/fold a bit, as opposed to standing straight up.
Also, who know how it was stored: was something able to press up or on top of it?
Either way, it's a lovely (authentic) bag, and that slouchiness is hardly a detractor. (Gravity is going to affect us all, eventually! ;))
