Hello, everyone! I recently feel in love with Balenciaga bags, I know I'm late to the party, and I've started collected them. I want to add a turquoise bag to my collection. I'm looking at a 2005 Turquoise City in good shape with some darkening of the handles and scratches here and there, a 2012 Lagon city with no signs of wear and a 2005 Twiggy with softened handles, but no other signs of wear. They are all about the same price.

I've been looking at them for days now and just can't make a choice. They're all beautiful! Thank you so much for your thoughts!

I would choose 2005 City :smile: Just love 2005 leather, but Twiggy is not for me. But Lagon is lovely as well :graucho: Definitely vote for 2005 City :biggrin:

2005 City!! I am watching this bag too but don't think I will buy it. :graucho: There are other colors that are higher on my list.

I purchased a preloved Apple Green recently and sent her to LMB for cleaning and repair. The result is amazing. If you are interested, you can ask Barbara for a quote for handle cleaning.

I am sending another bag to her for handle cleaning and four corner repair. She quoted me $325 for that. Maybe this bag would be a little less.

Lagon City . It's almost the same color, looks in better shape and is newer... and imo it can handle more wear in the future than the others. No need to worry about cleaning, repairand additional expenses when you get it. : )

I am a Bal newbie. I have 4 agneau and 2 chevre. The agneau bags are nice and newer, but the chevre leather is just breathtakingly beautiful: soft, buttery and deeply saturated.

Please buy that bag so I won't keep thinking about it. ;)

Have you seen both colors in person? I can't speak for the 2012 Lagon because I've never seen it. However the 2005 Turquoise color is very saturated and beautiful. So, I would choose the 2005 City.

I personally like the Lagon, especially since it looks like it's in better condition. Which one did you decide on?
