BAG: BALENCIAGA NUDE WORK XS TOTE
WHY IT’S THE BAG OF THE WEEK: I’VE BEEN INTRIGUED WITH ALEXANDER WANG’S USE OF MARBLE SINCE HE STARTED HIS TENURE AT BALENCIAGA, AND NOW IT’S MADE IT TO THE BAGS IN A MEANINGFUL WAY. THE SHAPE OF THIS MARBLE LOGO PLAQUE MIMICS ONE OF THE DESIGN ELEMENTS OF BALENCIAGA’S ICONIC MOTORCYCLE BAGS, WHICH PROVIDES SOME COHESION AMONG THE BRAND’S DIFFERENT ACCESSORIES LINES.Other Brands
Every beautiful morning I wake up and my phone is always somewhere within hand’s reach. Somehow it has become a common behavior to quickly check my messages, am I alone on this world? Probably not, phones have become a necessity and no morning is too early to be notice about a brand-new bag or a new release. At least you are up-to-date about fashion and you are prepared mentally for the next shopping spree. Let it be productive.
Balenciaga turned around their classics by introducing the new Maillon collection, but what we didn’t expect is that the Padlock bag has been re-designed. An ambush for anyone who has just bought the previous version. The new ones are far more superior in style and sharper in quality. Shaped in horizontal, put together with impeccable smooth and calfskin leather, with removable shoulder strap inherited from the classic city bag. The padlock has one large space with an interior zip pocket crafted. Because it’s unstructured, you never feel it’s overstuffed.
For now, your new Balenciaga crave is only made in black and rouge, both with golden hardware. You can get it for €1.595 or $2,350 USD at Balenciaga. More classics, more choices, more fun.
