One of the greatest bag feats Balenciaga ever accomplished was whipping shoppers into a frenzy over the Motorcycle Bags’ seasonal colors in the design’s early days. (We have have some gorgeous photos of some of the design’s rarest colors.) Since then, the clamor has died down a bit, and shoppers have gone back to normal levels of bag obsession, which isn’t exactly a problem.
During this week, I was at an event at Neiman Marcus in Fort Lauderdale and saw a woman with the Balenciaga Classic Metallic Edge Iridescent City Bag and wanted to take it off of her arm or at least go pet it. Maybe blame it on the Chanel Boy Bag that Kylie Jenner was spotted with, but I have a soft place for iridescent hardware–it’s just really cool. A black bag with the oil slick finish to its hardware is perfect for someone who wants a neutral option with a little something that helps it stand apart.
I wish Balenciaga made this hardware option in a smaller size, maybe a crossbody–yep, that’s exactly what I want–but this is still a really cool bag, and I’ve kept the tab open on my computer since Wednesday. Buy via Balenciaga for $2,125.
