Sorry but I need to rant...

  1. I HATE the larger hardware on the bags now. To me they look like gold thimbles that are stuck on the bags. I went to Neiman Marcus to look at colors and saw these awful gold "knobs" on the beautiful bags -- I am quite sad now.:crybaby:

    Can we get a letter writing campaign started to bring back the old hardware?
  2. Hehe... good idea - start a petition!

    Although, after seeing the GH on a Natural City or Part time (cant remember which one) I think it looked good...
  3. Isn't there both styles available? I thought you could get either or.
  4. Hahaha, that's EXACTLY what my little sister said!! :roflmfao:

    The thimbles are too bling-y for me, and I think Balenciaga jumped on the bling trend a little too late. I think they could have done gold hardware more tastefully.

    An SA at Neiman Marcus was trying REALLY hard to push the French Blue/GH Part-time on me the other day...I have to admit that it grew on me, but in the end, I felt that I would spend most of my time trying to love it instead of LOVIN' it!
  5. you can still buy the bags in the original hardware :biggrin:
  6. Thimbles, Clake? :roflmfao:

    I have never thought about the new hardware that way... if you see them that way, I'm sure that DH would make such a comment too... :wtf:
  7. I, too, have a hard time loving the GH. I think it looks best on the natural and cafe (some PFers have some great looking bags with these), but its a bit to obvious for me and I don't think that I can pull it off. At least the regular hardware is still available for those of us that can't (or won't) wear the GH look.
  8. yes, thimbles! exactly! :yes:

    i thought i heard that GH was a limited edition thing, so that would mean it'll be gone soon? or maybe this is wishful thinking...:shrugs:
  9. I wonder how well the GH bags are selling. I know everyone's stocking them, but...

    Hopefully I'll be down at BalNY soon (hear that, Kim???) and I'm going to ask. If they only do so-so, Bal probably won't bring them back. And you can definitely get the regular hardware -- that's what I'm on the list for.
  10. The reason I fell in love with Bbags is because of the tassles so no GH for me.
  11. i think in the right colour and style, the GH can still look fab :p
  12. I have seen a few PFer's bags with the GH here and they have been beautiful. But for myself, I will stick with the original hardware!!
  13. I thought they looked like thimbles too!
  14. I think they look gorgeous on some bags - the ones with the size and color to carry the look. They're not for me, though. My limit to bling is the bright brass zippers on my Botkier black Crosby Hobo.
  15. but I think they sell better, so a lot of stores are left with the GH only :sad:
