Balenciaga Paris - anyone been?

  1. I'm in Paris for a few days, and want to check out the mothership. Anyone already been? What's the store like?
  2. that is so funny you ask. One of the older conservative docs I work with went to paris to see some particular piece of art. I asked him if he would mind dropping in to the balenciaga store and look around for me. he was happy to do it and he said he got there and some Japanese tourists each bought 3 city bags and there were none left for him to buy for me (I asked him to pick me up the ink or the black) It was an experience he will never forget, surrounded by all those expensive handbags. He now officially thinks I'm nuts, but the next time he goes to Europe he said he'd be happy to stop into one of my "purse stores"
