Remember the very early Balenciagas? This new Rebecca Minkoff bag reminds me of it

I'm just into Bal lately, but it looks like a Besace with too many pocket?

When the motorcycle line first came out - they did versions with slanted zippers. The first and I think the messenger were available with these zippers.

OMG! You found a pic! Thank you! I was beginning to wonder if I was crazy. I knew that I had seen a Balenciaga bag just like it. Though, to be honest, I actually like the placement of the zippers on the RM bag better.

how do they get away with that kind of copying? i don't get it...
i've seen that bal bag in a lighter suede color online several times.
although i guess the bal was more expensive! but maybe they pay their craftspeople more to produce them...

^^ Yeah, you should have, Roey! It's adorable... sorta like a Besace with zippers...

I can't get over the blatant copy from RM...
