I get the butterflies - This is my first post on this Forum! :shame: I hope to find some time to share my collection with you all (Hermes and Gerard Darel)... In the meantime, as I am considering joining the Balenciaga clan, I would call upon your infinite knowledge to guide me for my first buy... SHAPE : I think I need a City, considering I usually carry a 35 cm bag. However, I went to Balenciaga Paris this week-end and Kevin showed me the Box and the Twiggy, which I also find lovely. What do you girls reckon? Are the Box and Twiggy practical vs the City? Will these styles last? COLOR : Most of my bags are black (my Hermes are), brown or tan leather. I think I need some color and I loooove Ink or Sky Blue. Do you find these colors easy to match with your clothes? Any prediction as to which colors will be hot? STANDING THE TEST OF TIME: Do you view you B-bag as a long-term investment? WIll its shape stand the test of time or is just a fashion, buzz? Will I not be disapointed by the leather? Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts with me! I am so glad to join the forum!
