I have a RH Officier City and would love to be able to wear it crossbody. The only long strap currently available to me is a RGH Canard Town strap. Would it the difference be really obvious and icky or would it be hardly noticeable and a good solution?

I've not seen Canard IRL and did look at some excellent comparison pics in the colour reference library. I guess I'd be most concerned by what appears to be the very teal edge sealant on the Canard.

i think the difference will be very obvious because Canard has a lot of teal/yellow undertones in it

Same here. I think it would be very obvious. I think you can find something more similar. Maybe take your Officier with you to a Bal boutique and try to find something. Maybe Dark Night strap? Or maybe Balenciaga might have a good idea for a replacement.

The Gendarme (aka Ultramarine) bmoto jacket is really, really similar to Officier, so maybe something from last season will be more similar then Carnard? Good luck with your search!

I agree. Canard and Officier are pretty different; Dark Night or Marine? I know a few gals here had custom made straps also. Good luck!

Yes, that's what I suspected. Thanks for confirming, Lakotan

Dark Knight is a good suggestion. I'll keep my eyes open. Unfortunately there's no Bal boutique anywhere near me but perhaps I can contact them via phone or email.

Thanks, chubbiebunnie. I'd love to find a good place to get custom straps made.


Thanks, all, for your input. I'll keep exploring options...
