The fashion industry has been talking about brights for the better part of the past year, but when I think of bright bags, I only think of one brand: Balenciaga. The French house has been cranking out vividly hued motorcycle bags for far longer than such a thing has been widely mimicked in fashion, and it will surely continue doing so long after the trend-following horde is on to the next thing.
Balenciaga Handbags and Purses(Page 4)
It is here, it is here!!! ‘It‘ being summer. Well, kind of here, not totally 100% here but it is trying to arrive. With warm weather and vacation season knocking at our doors, many are working on their beach bodies and prepping their summer wardrobe.
Having spent all of Friday carrying my yellow Kate Spade Essex Scout Crossbody Bag around a series of furniture stores in pursuit of a new bed and mattress, I cannot extoll the virtues of a small, bright bag highly enough. Being hands-free for shopping is as convenient as you might imagine, but the flourish of color that such a bag provides is the real reason I was carrying that purse.
I’m a noted Balenciaga fangirl and would gladly carry either of the woven, multicolored Balenciaga Papier Cannage Imprime Totes, although the lighter of the two is my favorite. I have a feeling that this is going to be a controversial bag for some of our readers, though, which makes it all the more fun for a rousing game of Fill in the Blank.
However, if you want a smaller bucket bag with a 10″ shoulder drop the new Balenciaga Arena Cross Pampille Mini could work for you.
Here is your first look at my new Balenciaga Anthracite City with Rose Gold Hardware.
The post all about my new bag will come next week, but for now I have another option that my eyes are currently stuck on, the Balenciaga Giant City in Military Green with Rose Gold Hardware.
Said to be released next season, Balenciaga will launch a line of dog leashes and collars to join the group of luxury pet accessories.
A funny thing happened at the Hotel Crillon in Paris yesterday – Balenciaga Fall 2011 graced the runway and we actually got to see handbags. That doesn’t happen particularly often under Nicolas Ghesquiere’s creative direction, but I was utterly thrilled to see that he threw a bone to those of us who tune in to see the accessories as much as the clothes themselves.
