Balenciaga Handbags and Purses(Page 6)
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.
Fill in the blank in the comments section below: The Balenciaga Alphabet Tote is ___________.
I find it hard not to love the Balenciaga Croc City Classic in lavender. The color is subtle but eye catching and this bag combines a motorcycle meets ladylike vibe.
Chalk this up as another bag that needs to be seen in person to be appreciated. The Holiday 2011 sueded metallic finishes that Balenciaga has been parading around of late piqued my interest, but only the dark silver (Balenciaga calls it black, but whatever, it’s dark silver), because that just sort of how I roll. I was a little nervous because the Balenciaga 10th anniversary sueded bags weren’t my favorite by any stretch of the imagination, but upon closer inspection, the brand has definitely learned from that misstep.
Over its ten year history, the great strength of the Balenciaga motorcycle bag has been its ability to be something of a sartorial Rorschach test. Because of the design’s simple lines and ability to morph from shape to shape while still being unmistakably Balenciaga, a prospective customer can see in it whatever she would like to see, and Nicolas Ghesquiere & Co.
UPDATE: Despite the name, this bag is not actually studded. MatchesFashion.com calls it that for reasons that are not entirely clear, since it has no more studs than any other Balenciaga bag, and they don’t refer to the rest of their Balenciaga inventory that way. My eyes did not deceive me the first time – it’s perforated, which actually makes me like it even less.
