hey guys,

could someone please explain whats going on with the different balenciaga leather(s)? I've been going over some b-bag threads and a couple mention how the company's switching back to an "original" leather in the Fall?
Whats the difference in texture and quality?
Or has this already switched back?

Thanks!!:P

I don't see any difference in quality, only in texture. The "new" leather is waxy/shiney and more folds/crackles. The "old" is like regular leather, not as shiney, etc. I have both, and love them both. If I had to pick though, I'd probably pick the "old" leather.

the old and new (and new-old!) leather is all distressed, but the old one was matte, verrry soft, and very slouchy.
the newer leather (after SS 05) has a sort of top glaze and crackle on it, so it's shiny, and a bit stiffer.
