Weaving – a textile art in which two distinct sets of yarns or threads interlaced with each other to form a fabric or cloth.
If you observe the labor of weaving, it’s a long and tiresome technique for making accessories, but also one of the artful ways to create 80’s patterns. Here at Balenciaga, we were just informed that the ‘Weaving Collection’ has been released. But it’s basically the new interpretation of the classic line reworked with hemstitched weaving – the retro of the Classic City Bag.
It could be the summer, or it could be just me, but lately Balenciaga has got inspiration about nets and fishnets. Previously showed, the limited edition Balenciaga Classic City Arena Bag is exclusive available online; they were beautifully colored in Blue Dragée and designed in net. And now the Classic City Bags are built with contrasted fishnet.
Combined with technic fishnet and soft calfskin, it comes with a removable strap. You can only pick one color and that’s black and white. Measurements are 9.4” x 14.8” x 5.5’’ inches, at Balenciaga for the price of $1,545 USD or €1.145. Or take the Classic Mini City for $1,275 USD / €895.
I do belief that seasonal bags are ideal as an addition to your wardrobe, but there is no replacement for the classic styles. If this is your first Balenciaga date, we recommend you to check-out with the classics first.
