These are lovely! And totally functional for work. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve left an important item behind in a rush to get out the door for lunch because I didn’t dig deep enough in my bag.
I can see using the smaller of the two bags as my purse (cell, keys, wallet, other personal items) and the larger for work items (iPad, notebook, files and so on).
I can’t see the handles being comfortable enough to carry for work. Especially for commuters.
When I saw Wang’s first collection for Balenciaga, I thought he was going the right direction, but two collections later, there is no focus in his designs and he has yet to create a solid handbag line that stands out to Ghesquière’s Lariat series. I used to anticipate Balenciaga’s whimsy, but now only anticipate disappointments. This collection honestly looks like a bad replica of Ghesquière’s past collections: a true case of hype over talent. I believe brands need to take different approaches and directions to grow, but if Wang does not find his own DNA within Balenciaga soon, he will never step out of Ghesquière’s legacy at the house.
I disagree. Alexander wang’s designs has a certain minimalistic aesthetic to them – and I see a lot of the prisma bag in this. I like the simplicity.
The Le Dix(?) bag was nice and refreshing, especially for Balenciaga, but i do see what youre saying-ive never been 100% about Wang at Balenciaga his style just doesnt seem to ‘fit’, if thats the right term, but maybe he’ll surprise us!
I love it and I want it!
