This is a real bargain from TKMaxx – a very Balenciaga Lariat/City/Le Dix-alike bag in thick soft black leather with gold hardware. Very spacious and has a detachable shoulder strap and shorter handles. Was available and online in store at High Street Kensington. Once I got my sweaty hands on it, I was done for!
They also had this bag in the High Street Kensington branch – it has a very Chanel-inspired chain strap and quilting but Balenciaga-type hardware and buckles. There was only one and it is still there. It is far too small for me but is a stunning bag – still available online for two and three times the £129 it costs at TKMaxx. The strap looks silvery in the photos but it is actually the same gold as the rest of the hardware.
