    i have the first and i like it but somehow there's something about the proportion of the mini city that made me fall in love with it, so i'm pretty interested to see the mini city

    what's the difference between the first and the mini city?
    is the mini city more square? and the first is a bit more rectangular?

    ohh, that makes it so much easier to visualize!

    i wonder if the popularity of Celine's and Proenza Schouler's bags in that approx size spurred the creation?

    Does anyone know if Balenciaga will sell me extra tassels??? I've had my City for about 8 years now and the tassels are looking rather grotty, I'm afraid. They split ages ago, but now they've gotten to the point where they're breaking off and getting shorter...would love to get some new ones to freshen it up a bit.

    Me too, they are very sophisticated, modern but with a hint of retro. I'm dreaming of finding a similar bag in my deceased grandmother's closet. Not gonna happen though.

    For those of you who bought a Balenciaga bag with the darker brass hardware, does it fade over time to become a lighter brass?

    If the brass is rh it tends to unveil an golden color.
