Kylie Jenner carries a blue Balenciaga bag at LAX (5)

Kylie Jenner was recently spotted making a mad dash out of LAX with a charming Balenciaga Classic Mini Bowling Bag. This bag is a petite, domed version of the Balenciaga Motorcycle Bags that we all know and love. It can currently be obtained in Kylie’s preferred hue for $1,345 at Barneys.

Balenciaga Le Dix Feature

The Balenciaga Le Dix Bag brought out some strong opinions from our commenters when it was first revealed, and now that the bag is available for immediate purchase, we thought it would be worth the time to revisit the design now that we have bigger, more detailed photos to examine.

Kim Kardashian carries a beige Balenciaga City Bag (5)

Kim Kardashian is back in the public eye, as of this week. She crawled out of her top secret baby-rearing compound for Paris Fashion Week, and now she’s back in Los Angeles. Here she is arriving at LAX after her Paris trip, carrying a beige Balenciaga City Bag.

Balenciaga Spring 2014 Handbags (3)

I think most of us, me included, thought that there was a decent chance Alexander Wang might fall flat on his face at the helm of Balenciaga. Maybe not probable, but not exactly impossible, either. Thankfully, Wang’s results in two seasons as Balenciaga’s creative director have yielded the exact opposite – two focused, luxurious, modern collections that are built solidly atop Balenciaga’s historic foundation.

Balenciaga Tube Bag

While I’ve always has a soft spot in my heart for the downtown chic Balenciaga City Bag, I’m also a fan of creative director Alexander Wang’s brand new Balenciaga Le Dix Bag. His designs are sleek, simple, and very ladylike.

Sophia Bush carries a green Balenciaga City Bag in LA (5)

Here’s Sophia Bush, playing the part of “quintessential LA actress” – drinking a grande green tea and heading to the gym with her pricey designer handbag in tow. In this case, her gym bag of choice is the ever-popular, buttery lambskin Balenciaga City Bag.

Balenciaga Papier Ledger Zip Around Tote

In general, it doesn’t bother me that so many designers have been “inspired” by Celine to adjust the gusset structure on some of their new bags. When a silhouette becomes so widely adored and connects so strongly with high-end customers, other brands would be silly not to explore whether it would be worth implementing in their own designs.

Balenciaga Le Dix Bag Feature

We’ve been awaiting this moment more or less since the day that Alexander Wang was announced as the new creative director at Balenciaga: we now know what Wang’s first flagship bag for the brand, the Balenciaga Le Dix Bag, will look like.

Alanis Morissette carries a Balenciaga Courier Bag in LA (5)

Here’s Alanis Morissette, leaving brunch with her husband in LA. We’re fairly sure the bag she’s carrying is a Balenciaga Courier Bag, perhaps an older version with a different strap than the current Couriers. There’s a chance, however, that it could be another Balenciaga bag altogether.

Balenciaga Serpent Arena Classic Work

Until I saw the Balenciaga Serpent Arena Classic Work Bag, it had never occurred to me that I hadn’t ever seen a snakeskin Bal Motorcycle bag. After all, the design has been around in one incarnation or another for over a decade, and we’ve seen it in everything from straw to crocodile – surely there had been at least a python version, right?
