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.

PRADA SUEDE DOUBLE TOTE BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Prada-Suede-Double-Bag

Suede is becoming popular, we’re seeing more designer brands selecting this material to craft their classic and iconic handbags.

Softer than saffiano, yet as durable and strong. For the new season, the famous Prada Double Bag is adorned with this leather, it’s a new way of experience this tote bag.

Besides that the leather is changed, the elements of the Double Bag remain the same – it features a snap-closure on the sides, in case you want to expand or contract. I love its flexibility.

The interior comes with an internal pouch and it has one large compartments to store all your essentials – it has more space than you need, perfect to carry from day to night, from work to evenings.

With an additional shoulder strap (which can be removed), you can also carry the bag on your shoulder, but the best way to carry is always by hand.

This is a lovely bag and tough its made from ‘Suede’, the price is in line with the saffiano leather version. Whether you choose Suede or Saffiano leather depends on personal preference. And though both leathers are great, it’s obvious that Saffiano leather requires less maintenance. But the Suede delivers a whole new experience, which feels more luxurious.

Measuring 10.6’ x 14’ x 6.7’ (H x W x D) inches, priced at $2950 USD via Neiman Marcus e-store.

Or get it in Prada store for around €2100 euro.
