I didn’t get it.

My friend loves her Balenciaga bags.
“I’m so lucky I live in New York- They only have two stores in the world, one in Paris and one here!”
I’m indifferent. They’re pleasant enough, but nothing remarkable.

10 days later, she shows me her handbag collection. She has at least six Balenciaga ones, and all but one could easily hold as much as a backpack. These bags are huge.
And then
I pick one up.


It’s so light-
like 1/6 the weight of a leather bag of the same proportions...
it's closer to the weight of a canvas one.
It's so awesome. I want one.
