Don't forget about the SEARCH function I'm just merging all the 'inspired' talk - hope thats okies! Hello all, I am fairly new to the Balenciaga world, but I have decided to buy a City in either black or Ink. I live in Small town Canada, and imagine my astonishment when I saw an ad in a local mag with a pic of a bag that looked exactly like a City bag. On further examination, they are called "Tammi Lyn" Google it, you'll see. Is this a "knock -off" or "inspired by" situation? I would never consider anything but a Balenciaga, but I'm curious if anyone has heard of them.
