We’ll start where Balenciaga started: with the Balenciaga Le Dix Motorcycle Bag, known as a “flat brass” design for its low, smooth brass studs. These bags were produced starting in 2001; by 2003, Balenciaga switched to raised hardware for good, making the 2001 and 2002 bags collector’s items. Kate Moss still carries her flat brass hobo quite regularly.

    Amanda, you missed the Emerald Green giant day bag of Katie Holmes. I am still
    hunting for that bag in THAT color!! I love your violet one too. Alas, the company does not have those colors :-(

    Famke Janssen’s bag is a Men’s Day. They still make a bag called the Men’s Day, but it hardly looks like this one. The strap is shorter and not adjustable, the tassels are just a couple inches long, and the two studs below the zipper are the only hardware. I guess it looks a little more manly? I have the old one in five colors and people always laugh when I tell them it’s actually a men’s bag.
