    Default Why did Balenciaga change to Lamb from Goat?

    Hi girls~
    I just got the 2008 ggh city in black. love it, I am wondering why some people do not like the lambskin now used, and does anyone know why Balenciaga changed from Goat? I am a pretty new Bbag lover, I also heard thay are not going to make the giant gold hardware any longer, do you think it has anything to do with the gold metal tarnishing or discoloring with time?

    Thanks for your patience with my questions, I love this site!

    I don't know why they changed from goat, and I really wish they didn't! I love the new colors, but I'm not sure how the leather will age. I love the way the older goat Bal bags become so smooshy and puddly over time. I wish they were all still goat.

    I would assume the change was due to costs or ease of acquisition, but that's just a guess. A lot of people share pingping's concerns about how the leather will wear over time.

    I think they're discontinuing the ggh because the gsh is outselling it (or perhaps they're trying to generate demand for the ggh bags by making them more scarce for a while). I wouldn't be surprised if they reintroduce it at some point just to mix things up a bit.

    The weird thing is that Italian lamb is much more expensive than goat.

    I mean no one wants to wear a goat leather coat.

    I like chevre better! Agneau to me is too new to really know how it will turn out over time, so I'd rather stick with the tried and true chevre.

    I was just at the Balenciaga store and mentioned this .. the girl looked at me like I was nuts. She said it's always been goat. As for the GGH.. I just bought the fall Midday with GGH.. and they have a pretty big gold selection in the store.. not sure they are doing away with it completely.

    My 08 City is Agneau (lamb).
    As far as the GGH I don't think it is going to be produced in the next collection.
