Since Balenciaga doesn’t often show handbags on its Paris runway, getting a look at what Nicolas Ghesquiere has cooked up for an approaching season can be a little tricky. From the few pictures I’ve seen, Balenciaga Spring 2011 will feature brightly colored straw motorcycle bags similar to those from Spring 2010, but the addition of this colorblocked shopper is a bit more unexpected.

Spring 2011 prices have yet to be released, so if you’re a Balenciaga lover, what price would you want to see in order to be interested in this bag?

    Ooo no no no it’s like Warhol crashed with the fresh prince of bel air not loving it .

  • chloehandbags

    I quite like it, actually! :D

    Anything over $400 (which I’m sure it will be!) would be too much to pay, though, IMO.

  • shueaddict

    if it turns out to be over 400$ then I’m sticking to Longchamp

  • baghooligan

    Wow tops $300 for that thing. I would buy a pair shoes or a pair of Chanel earrings for that price.

  • kemilia

    Ooooh, I am covering my B-Bags’ eyes, they should not see this!

  • Constance

    This is really very cute and practicle!

  • Jen

    Is this a post-Halloween joke? Balenciaga in Lacoste costume?

  • gacats

    Yukkers. This is a fail.

  • Kris

    it looks very kate spade to me..identity confusion!

  • whit

    i almost customized my llbean tote to that type of color scheme. ;p

  • Stylista

    Whoa! Very bright indeed! I’d go for a classic Balenciaga.

  • Amy

    no it looks like a long champ bag that’s been marked to death with a highlighters. Would not buy ever!

  • somethingbags

    wrong move for balenciaga. they should just stick with their classic leather silhouettes. this is just trying to join in the shopper/tote bandwagon.

  • Phelsuma

    Seriously?! No way!!!

  • mochababe73

    Cute, but I can’t help thinking that it should be located in our local Lacoste store. Also, it’s impractical to carry a bag that large in your hand. It really needs a longer strap.
    I would say that although it looks like a Coach, it will probably be priced higher. Since a canvas Coach comes in at around $200, give or take, this one will more than likely be in the $500 range.

  • marivale83

    Not so bad, i’ll pay $ 200

  • babe

    Not for me.

  • soul

  • Jelita78

    aiyaaa caramba..
    looks like an accident just happened at the bal bag factory..
    absolutely a flop in choice of colours.. (ipad)

  • Julia

    i’ve always liked it when tote straps don’t rise vertically from the base of the bag to the handle, but at an angle, so if this came in other colors, it would probably end up on my wishlist! (ipad)

  • Elizabeth

    fun colours, but not for the price. (ipad)

  • Jen

    I like the idea of bright but these colors… Eh… (ipad)

  • helen

  • Sherry

  • Sherry

  • Sherry

  • Sherry

    maybe next time (ipad)

  • mimoko

    Bal bags are supposed to be premier designed. whoever designed the spring collection should be terminated for ruining their reputation with cheap looking bags. Pls stick to classic leather designs!I’ll rather get a Kipling or le sport sac for something similar with better price!
