It's on Erica's site. Supposed to ship in mid-April.
I went to Bals site and it appears there too, but I can't access anything on their page anymore, so I'm wondering if it's already in Bal boutiques?

Debating if I really need another black.. lol..

Here's a pic from Erica

This looks a lot like the vibrato leather
I was wondering what the difference is between this bag, and what was released last year? Aside from Bal not calling it Vibrato this time around, they look exactly the same to me from the pic.

I think it's gorgeous and may get it. Just need to talk myself into getting yet another black city. lol
I wonder how this calf leather or the Hamilton chèvre would look with RH?

(And on a completely selfish note, if you happen to buy this bag, there would be a fantastic opportunity to take some comparison pics with your other black Bals and post here on TPF ;) If Bulldogs are included that would be considered a huge plus :biggrin: )

lol.. if I get it, will definitely post a comparison. No Bulldogs though, they're not to be trusted.
One of them ripped a tassel in half on my Cassis WE for the few seconds I left him alone with the bag. Little turd got caught with the tassel stuck in his flubber.. :lol:

Definitely get it! So nice! :nuts: Was the Vibrato leather from last year also calfskin? I think i saw this exact bag in a very bright red last week. I would love this exact bag in goatskin/chevre. Why can't Balenciaga just make Chevre bags a part of the mainline again!!

Well, that little turd has great taste! I'm sure he, being a Bulldog, is of the finest pedigree, does he know you talk about him in this nonpedigree manner? :lol: We also had a dog that liked tassels (on shoes). Managed to daintily chew them off with his huge teeth without leaving a single mark on the rest of the shoe. Maybe they're trying to floss :smile:

I agree about the chévre! Not that I know a lot about Bal chévre but would be interesting to see. And I think you are probably right about all the over-sized and flower blanket bag creations released by Balenciaga lately. It's keeping them in the spotlight. Or Demna Gvasalia is just trolling the Bal forum :smile:

That's hysterical..lol.. ok, maybe not for the shoe.. haha

Funny thing is, I can trace that ones pedigree back to the 1800's in England - pure Bulldog and registered with the AKC here in the States. I'm much more of a mutt than he is..lol.
Nonetheless- his furry paws, and big teeth aren't allowed near my bags. Can't be trusted with anything but a treat..:lol:

Yup, it was calfskin last year too.
I'm fine with Agneau leather. It feels softer than my older chevre bags. But, my chevre bags are sooo silky. Kinda weird actually, not sure if it's the different leathers, or the process.

Do you guys remember when it was first announced that Gvasalia was replacing AW? There was an article with pictures of his pieces. The dresses were straight out of the 90's grunge era, long, flowy and had flowers. I think he's obsessed with floral print.
