Balenciaga Blanket Square XL Tote

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: BALENCIAGA

If you thought the last bag Balenciaga did was crazy, wait till you see this. From Demna Gvasalia’s Spring-Summer 2017 collection for Balenciaga, it’s inspired by another humble carrier, vintage blanket/comforter bags that I used to remember seeing stacked on top of my Grandmother’s wooden cupboard when I was but a wee lad.

Completely repurposed as fashion’s next hit bag, Balenciaga’s version stays true to the original. Large floral print, check. Name of the brand printed on the angled label on the top right hand corner of the bag, check. Even the handles are the same, except for the fact that they are now hand-twisted nappa as opposed to woven cotton. It even opens like a traditional blanket carrier, which opens suitcase-style as you unzip the bag from end to end.

Measuring some 56 cm by 47 cm, it’s a bag that you’ll either revel in its irony with, or just be completely repulsed and wonder why such a humble carrier would need elevation in the first place. But that’s precisely the point of fashion, to provoke a reaction, be it good or bad, from us. Because honestly if everything is same-same, then we might just as well have one fashion house for everyone out there in the world, right?

Priced at USD3975 and available online now via Balenciaga in orangey-red (shown above) or in a beige/blue combination, Balenciaga Singapore also has tiny full coloured variations (known as the Blanket Square) that come with a long shoulder sling. Besides the bags, you’ll also find clutches (the same thing, but flattened with a zip that runs along the top) and I think in due time, long and compact wallets like they did with the Bazar collection.

Balenciaga Bazar Shopper XS

Categories:Other Brands

Love them or hate them, the Bazar Shopper totes have been bestsellers since the day they were launched, an updated nod to the cheap plastic carryalls you’ll find at most any wet/wholesale market around the world. Made of leather (not canvas or plastic, mind you), Balenciaga has introduced a new size for the season, a smaller-than-small variation that’s simply known as the XS (or Mini, as she is also known).

Measuring a wee 23 cm by 22 cm, the almost-square mini tote comes adorned with a long shoulder sling, which allows one to sling it across the body if you so choose. Or, you could just carry it by its short top handles, which would also work well. Then there are the many, many different colour combinations it comes in, from the Coral/White and Mustard/Ecrucombinations that you’ll find on Net-A-Porter, to a Green/Blue/Red/Whitemulti-combo that you’ll only find online via MATCHESFASHION.

Affordably priced (and considering they are made of full lambskin leather as well), they retail for GBP885 on Net-A-Porter and aroundSGD1400 via MATCHESFASHION. And with Lunar New Year just around the corner, might I also add that these bags, small as they might be, will be ample enough for all the red packets you’re going to collect?

BALENCIAGA NANO CLASSIC CITY BAG

Categories:Other Brands

balenciaga-nano-classic-city-bag

A complete collection consists of all sizes; from the ‘Nano’ to ‘Large’ sizes. A few years back, there was only one size available for the Balenciaga Classic City Bag – the ‘Medium’ size.

Then the Balenciaga Mini Classic City Bag was introduced and finally, the fans could choose a smaller size of the iconic motorcycle-inspired handbag. These were the only choices back in the days.

But just recently, Balenciaga started to expand the collection, after all the Classic City Bag is the signature bag of the fashion house. So they released the ‘Small’, this was just a few months ago. And already they went for the high road, and today you can even choose the ‘Nano’ size if you want. We belief that this will be last stop; there can’t be a tinier size than this.

‘Nano’ Bags are so in at this moment, we’ve seen many designer brands downsizing their iconic handbags; think of Louis Vuitton and Celine. The Balenciaga Nano City Bag is the perfect mini bag if you want to upgrade your urban-chic outfit. It comes with a shoulder strap that can be adjusted and detached, think of how cute it would look if you wear it cross body.

The bag comes with a zipped front pocket for the convenience; the interior is made with one large compartment and an slot pocket.

Made in Italy, measuring 7’ x 4.5’ x 2.5’ (W x H x D) inches, priced at $1070 USD, €845 euro, $8800 HKD, ¥132000 JPY, $1645 AUD, via MyTheresa.

Luxury Balenciaga Padlock Wallet

Categories:Other Brands

Balenciaga-Padlock-Wallet-2

When we think of Balenciaga wallets, we think of… let’s say, anything that’s similar to the Classic City Bag. You know, aged brass hardware, crispy leather and studs over there and studs over here. And its totally effortless, a simple pair of blue jeans will match.

When Alexander Wang decided to steer the Balenciaga ship, he left the Motorcycle handbags untouched. And that’s great, because everyone loves the Classic City Bag and the Part-time Bag. It’s the reason why we turn to Balenciaga when we need a weekender or a casual accessory.

Alexander Wang also invented a brand-new line, starting with the Le Dix Collection. It’s a series of accessories that are made chic and elegant. No more studs or crispy leathers, just smooth and feminine handbags that every woman would fall in love with.

Also new Wallets have been introduced, like this Balenciaga Padlock Wallet. It’s simple yet a powerful statement maker. One look and we know it’s a luxury item. Crafted from smooth calfskin leather, durable and lovely. It comes with a flap and a fake padlock closure, which stands out. The wallet is finished with pale gold metal hardware. Measuring 10 x 14 (H x W) in cm.
