HI EVERYONE


I NEED YOUR HELP. I WANT TO BUY A NEW BAG BUT I DON'T KNOW WHICH ONE I SHOULD BUY BETWEEN THE BALENCIAGA MOTORCYCLE IN BLACK OR A LANVIN BAG. IF YOU HAVE A BALENCIAGA OR A LANVIN, COULD YOU TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE LEATHER QUALITY BECAUSE I HAVE NEVER BOUGHT THESE BRANDS BEFORE. I HAVE SEVERAL CHANEL BAGS AND VUITTON AND I WILL SOON HAVE A KELLY AND I REALLY LOVE GREAT LEATHER.


I REALLY LOVE THIS ONE BY LANVIN:

i think the qualities are comprable however i think that you will be happy with the lanvin much longer than the balenciaga simply bc the balenciaga bag is kind of over with.

I really like them both but I am coming to the conclusion that a more annoymous bag is the way to go. I am a bit bored with 'it' bags. I saw the Lanvin bags (although not that one) recently and thought they were really gorgeous.

I concur with mikeijames!

thanx ! !!

i really wanted an advice on the leather because i have never seen or touch a balenciaga .
Everytime i see a pix of the motorcycle bag, i find the leather kind of strange, it seems to be old.
I have to say that i really love the lanvin collection. I will buy a lanvin, maybe next week. I live near Monaco so i will buy on there coz there is a store.

THANX AGAIN

i'm with those above me...the bags are comparable in quality...and price...it's really just a matter of personal preference...that is not my favorite lanvin bag personally...we have a thread on lanvin bags somewhere...

anyway...i really prefer to have something a bit more indvidual and unique...so I would opt out of both and go for something less obvious ...if you know what I mean...

i also like a bag that gives the option of carrying low or over the shoulder...the balenciaga is really a handbag...and the lanvin chain might be uncomfortable if you put too much in it...i know some people who have chanel bags that say the chain strap is painful...plus the lanvin is a bit too similar to the chanel for me...although it's still very nice...

i don't know if that helps at all...

i agree with SPACE!
balenciaga is in my eyes much more versatile than the lanvin bags..
balenciaga has proved to be more than an "it" bag and the shape also is more appealing and practical IMO.
the leather of the lanvin is ok. but its quite rigid

i like the lanvin. the lariat is nice but it's somehting i would get easily tired of. plus it's too "casual" to my liking. i can see myself wearing a lanvin in 20 years, whereas the lariat would stay in the closet

I have a balenciaga- I quite like it and carry it almost daily and I'm usually someone who switches bags around! The leather on it is a bit "odd" in that it is not buttery smooth but the leather has proven to be excellent day to day as it is rather resilliant, I don't worry about scratches, it is not too old lady for my tastes (I'm in my early 20s). I don't really feel that it is overexposed, largely because it is not something which I've really seen copied tons and I do see other girls with the same bag but in different colours. I'm too embarassed to carry my older vuittons etc., because of the played out factor but not so with this one.

I don't really have a take on the Lanvin...
