hello,
im normally an MJ gal.
i love Bbags but the prices have kept me away and sane for most of my bag collecting.

I fell in love with the early vintage multi-zips years ago.
and i've been searching for one for a good price for a long time.
well, i finally found one, it'll be my first balenciaga bag.



i did several searches on this bag and there doesn't seem to be a ton of info on it. I know suede isn't always a popular choice (i've always adored it....and the pony bags too)...i think it ages beautifully and gets a nice burnished look to it...

i was wondering if there were any Bbag girls out there that have this bag or one like it in their collection? the first, the hobo? or if there are previous owners of the multi-zips?

i was curious if anyone had any opinions on the leather? does anyone know if it's calf or lamb? also, i cant find to find any mod shots at all.
I was researching the strap drop lengths and whatnot to figure it out. is there anyone out there with one that could provide a mod shot??

TIA!
:heart:
i cant wait to see if there's any of these in the collections of PFers

makeup artist gucci westman has one too, it was featured on thecoveteur.com (love the color on this...never seen one like it)



it also came in brown suede, and in a hobo version...

Hi, I just bought one of these bags in marron suede. Was wondering if yours had any features that seemed inauthentic? For example, the lampo zippers are not embossed/italicized, the shoulder strap material folds over on the ends, and the interior zipper is plastic. Are these features of vintage Bal bags? Please let me know - I thought I knew everything there was to know about real Bal bags but now I'm not so sure! Thanks so much!

Hi, please post authenticity questions in Authenticate This Balenciaga. :yes: If you're not sure about a bag's authenticity, please post pictures there to get opinions.

I have the plain chocolate suede hobo from 02. Mine came to me well loved but has held up really well over the years. These bags tend to be quite stiff, the leather is thick (it's calf, I think) and the nape of the suede quite long. They are hardy bags, quite different from the usual Bal leather. You won't get much slouch with these. The last picture shows a comparison to a 2010 suede seigle folk. The current suede is much finer and softer.

Here's my 2002 Marron Multi-zip! It is in pretty good condition considering its age! I love the color! The older suede is definitely sturdier than the current suede bags.

What a perfect red/wine color! Did the multi-zip hobo exist in the marron?? That would, in my opinion, be the perfect bag :loveeyes::loveeyes::loveeyes::loveeyes:

Any ideas where I can locate one of these? I've tried real deal, yoogi's closet, ebay, bonanza, and hg bags. I'm all out of ideas! I've been trying for awhile. It's a dear ladies holy grail who has been through a lot lately, and I was trying to locate it for Christmas. Any help would be so much appreciated! Thank you!

You may have to sign up to see it, but here is the listing. It sold, but it looks like there is a waitlist option in case of return, etc.
