Paddingtons - in or out?

The Chloé Paddington bag has been in the top list of designer handbags for quite a while now. Although, now I am starting to wonder, is it slowly loosing it's charm? As I see it, Balenciaga Motorcycle bags and Paddingtons are sort of like competitors. They are approximately of the same size and can be used in similar situations. And, of course, both bags come in all sorts of colors! Just makes you want to get more and more. However, are these bags slowly fading away? Or maybe one is way ahead the other? The way I see it is that, yes, these bags are not as "hot" as they were a year or so ago, but I think they are becoming a classic. Something that will always be admired and appreciated by fashion/handbag/luxury "lovers".
I love the Paddington, no matter what other people think. It is so elegant and gorgeous. It is also very practical, can hold quite a lot. For some people the weight can be a problem, but you get used to it. And it's always good with a little bit of a workout along the way.
