Unless you really want the bag in "BLACK" (not just "dark color / shade"), then you may want to consider getting other color. Anyway, that's my personal view. All in all, I think each color of Balenciaga bag delivers different feeling and looks, and that's why we all them!!

Totally agree!! It is grey with a hint of green / khahi, which is different from the heather grey.

I got my taupe twiggy a few days ago and just love the color more and more!! Anyway, after I got the twiggy (which I thought I really loved), I feel like I actually prefer the small and city classique. The twiggy is good if you want more space, but I think the classique (both small and city) is more functional.

Hi everyone I have a black le dix, but now really want a twiggy. I would like either a brown or tan colour. Does anyone know what colours they come in and also whether a tan would get dirty? Is there a darker brown avaliable?


Thanks

its really sad how the arena bags are discontinued now..

its hard to put my babyblue medium over my shoulder and i dont like to use the long strap... i wish they made an arena in babyblue... then i would have gotten it instead of getting the medium.
i really loved the look of the "shopper" aka arena bags.
yes, too bad they are discontinued.

maybe when i visit korea this summer... i can get my hands on a seafoam
bag... i don't care what it is (classique, city classique, twiggy...etc.)

the bag is not "le dix" anymore. it was actually a different line of bags from balenciaga. they are officially the motorcycle bags--sans the word "le dix".

about what i said about wanting a black classique-i do, but i was watching the ashlee simpson show just now and this girl who was on it had a white classique and damn it looked so gorgeous..now im back to wondering if i should get white. decisions...
compared to the white, which i know is known to get super-dirty, this color will hold up, darker colors will hold up longer. didn't you see the picture that cloud9 posted earlier in the thread?

keep the taupe twiggy! since it's a classic color, you can carry it with anything you wear. i prefer the classique in a bolder color or a lighter shade since i'd like to carry it on a night out or events so it can stand out with the outfits i wear.

geez... that's almost double the price!! is it really worth trying to salvage the seafoam? maybe it's just better that we wait and hope for balenciaga to come out with a light greenish color in the future....
$1600 just hurts.

red is definitely a must-have. it just looks so wonderful with black or neutral attire!

yeah, thats crazy :/ i'm going to wait on it, i have a source who may be coming thru for me with a seafoam..its a long shot tho.

i'm back to square one trying to decide between white and black-after seeing that girl carrying a small white on the Ashlee Simpson show last night-it just looked so good...gahh.

also on that show Ashlee was carrying a small tan, it looked gorgeous
