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. However, after looking this Balenciaga Tube Round M Tote Bag, I couldn’t help but be more appreciative Wang predecessor Nicolas Ghesquière.

In Wang’s first handbag designs for the brand, we see an occasional nod to the aesthetics of his predecessor, like the modernity and simplicity of the Le Dix compared to a bag like this one. To be honest, that’s was one of the main reasons why I was instantly attracted to this bag. This handbag has simple hardware, like the vertical closure, and the shape of this handbag is structured and strong, but not too bulky. Of course, a Balenciaga bag wouldn’t be complete without the signature touch of the leather0bound travel mirror – an added detail that all of us ladies understand the true importance of.

    Just looked at this bag yesterday at Barney’s. I like the bag, love the leather…the construction is beautiful. The strap attachment is beautiful. I am not crazy about the “rounded bullet closure”…would have been sleeker had it been flatter, in my opinion. The gusset is gorgeous. Curious to hear what others have to say.

      I have seen this bag at the school opening party and had to stalk the mother to get a closer look ( not being a Balenciaga fan I had to get real close to read the tag) – I really want it because it looks luxe without any recognazible logo.
      And the price point makes it a winner.
      How does it feel to have your hands on it?

    I love the tube shape to me its sophisticated and feminine, but has a tiny hint of masculinity because it reminds me of my Dad’s leather dentist bag. I coveted that bag as a child and this is a beautiful grown up version. This bag is on my wish list!

    I recently saw this gorgeous bag IRL. I was very impressed! The bag is lovely and classic and the leathers and construction are beautiful. The al leather interior adds to the elegance of the bag. Had I not just gotten a Black Birkin, I would have grabbed this bag in a heartbeat.

    Recently I was REALLY low on money and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money on the internet. I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills!! I’m so glad, I did this!! – d2xa
