Balenciaga F/W17 Triangle Duffle

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: @WALNUTCRUST FOR BALENCIAGA

I know what you’re going to say, Balenciaga has been making the strangest of bags lately. But think of it this way, better be strange and unusual than cookie-cutter boring, right? And while this bag might not be everyone’s cup of tea, there’s really no harm taking a closer look either, especially when it will definitely remind you of, say, a samosa (a triangle-shaped pasty that’s often deep-fried and filled with savoury bits).

From Demna Gvasalia’s F/W17 collection for the French luxury label, the Triangle Duffle is quite literally, in a shape of a triangle (seriously Alvin, was that the best you can do?). Available in at least 2 different sizes, each of these sizes come with a pair of top handles, along with a long shoulder sling that allows one to wear it any which way you prefer. There’s also a much smaller version sans handles and sling that’s a clutch, which is adorable too but we’ll save that for another post at a later date.

Priced at SGD2070 and SGD2940 in Singapore for sizes Small and Medium respectively, it comes in Black, it comes in Gris, it even comes in a tasty golden Beige Caramel that really looks like a freshly deep-fried samosa. Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.

Balenciaga Blanket Square XL Tote

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

The iconic couture house has had many reincarnations, but today Balenciaga is one of Paris's most contemporary fashion houses. Sculptural, cocoon shapes executed in technical fabrics remain central to the label’s DNA, riffing on the original couture silhouettes loved by the fashion literate.

Balenciaga Introduces new Small Classic City Bag Size

Balenciaga has introduced their newest size for the iconic Classic City bag. For Fall/Winter 2016, Balenciaga presents the Small City bag.

The Classic Mini City has 16.0″ to 20.0″ strap drop, while the Classic City has 9″ strap drop.

BALENCIAGA RAY DOCTOR BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Balenciaga-Ray-Doctor-Bag-croco-black

The first taste of Alexander Wang’s creation for Balenciaga was the Le Dix Collection – a series of feminine chic accessories, streamlined and butterly smooth. I really like the ‘Le Dix Bags’ but my heart and loyalty, is still with the motorcycle bags; theClassic City, Classic Town, Classic Part time. Once you go for motorcycles, you simply don’t return.

But let’s chit chat about the Spring Summer 2014 Collection; from all the new bag releases I’ve seen, it’s the Balenciaga Ray Doctor Bag that have captured my attention, mainly because it’s looks so simple yet sophisticated and modern with a touch of elegant. The signature Balenciaga Paris is crafted on the silver plate and it’s made to hold only by hand. Unfortunately I didn’t saw any shoulder strap, it would be more convenient if they embellished it, but I think it would have totally ruined the design.

It has a shape to hold decent essentials, an iPad would certainly fit, but not your summer jacket. What I find interesting is that a lot of brands have already released the Spring Summer 2014 Collection, but Balenciaga is holding the Ray Doctor Bag back. There’s zero information on their website and I wondered whether it was released or not, but you can find the black version in their boutique.

I was also informed that the black and Rose Boudoir (as seen on the pics) will be made available online, but this can take a several weeks. Therefore we publish it early on, in case you spend your personal monthly allowance somewhere else. It’s currently priced at $2,650 USD.

Let us know what you think.

BALENCIAGA LE DIX CABAS M BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Balenciaga-Le-Dix-Cabas-M-Bag

The Balenciaga Le Dix Bags still have a long way to go, but one thing I am certain; they’re getting better and better.

The Le Dix’s are femininely stylish and so-much prettier than the usual bag, but it’s still unmatched to motorcycle bags that we so much adore. But overall, I can still bet my money on the new Le Dix Cabas M Bag because it’s practical to use in everyday life, and it can reach far more places than the Classic City Bag, like in formal events, when suits and ties are invited.

Let’s start from the beginning…

The name of the line, referring to Le Dix, is inspired by the 10 Avenue George V flagship boutiques. This new Le Dix Cabas M Bag is streamlined, simple and yet a powerful statement maker. Crafted from Elk skin printed calfskin leather and it comes with a removable shoulder strap that can be adjusted to your own comfort level.

Enriched with palladium and brushed gold with the mirror and closing snap embossed with ‘Balenciaga ’ logo, measuring 34 x 43 x 13 cm, currently only in Black Nappa Lining. At Balenciaga e-store for $1.995 USD and 1445 euro’s.

If you could choose between Balenciaga Classic City bag or the Le Dix, which one will you pick?
