eeeek, that's sad then, I was about to buy one for next year to use as a school bag, and when I think that in my backpack there's at least 15kg of books, the bag would just break.

baleneciaga bags are so luxurious, that i would never tote books and heavy items around.... but i would say that it's pretty durable for the most part. you can carry a lot of stuff in there. the leather is soft, but it's not that fragile.

I'm sad to see the old thread go but it was too long anyway so let's start again! Since I posted a lot of comments in the thread I was demoted to scenester, that blows!

Okay, I went to the Balenciaga store in Seoul today..

i am furious because they SOLD the bag that i put on hold.... (babyblue med)and they are not getting any more shipments of the babyblue..
only thing they have left in babyblue is the acc pouch, and the mini classique.

anyways,
the SA showed a list of all the new colors they are getting for fall...

RED is making a comeback in march.

fall 2005 colors include
pastel blue (lighter than baby blue)
grey-pink
grey
caramel
rose pink (im not sure if this is the bubble gum pink)

there were some more on the list, but my memory isnt very good....

You mean March 2005 or 2006?? I have gone through the old Everything Balenciaga thread and understand that Red will not be included in S/S 2005 collection.

About the cracking of the Balenciaga..well its starting happening to mine already and I've only had my bag for just over 5 months now. I use it practically everyday and sometimes it gets stuffed with quite full because I have the small size..but im a bit disappointed though especially for the price of it. Also yesterday when I was out shopping I noticed a small purple mark on the side..I dunno how it got there but I probably wont be able to clean it off
