As the Resort 2019 and Pre-Fall 2018 lines continue to roll out simultaneously—in lookbook and actual product form, respectively—a triangular style from Balenciaga that's already made it into celeb hands has me wondering: Why now? What do we gain from a bag with fewer corners? Can the novelty alone propel this to "it" bag status? And if you're already nostalgic for the soft, square bags of yesteryear (and most years, throughout the history of time), well, those are in here too.
