Balenciaga Introduces Two New City Bag Sizes; Check Out Our Comparison of All Five Currently Available

The Balenciaga Motorcycle Bags are easily the brand’s most iconic designs, and of the many shapes, structures and sizes that have come and gone beneath the signatures studs and buckles, the City Bag is inarguably the most recognizable and popular. The standard-size City Bag has been around since almost the very beginning, and in more recent seasons it’s been shrunken into the Mini City and then the City S (which stands for small) in order to keep up with the

For Its Next Trick, Balenciaga Has Made an IKEA Shopping Bag, but Fashion

Folks, I don’t know how to explain this any better than the photo above already does. Most of you are probably familiar with IKEA’s big, blue shopping bags, which are awkwardly constructed in the exact proportion that would be necessary to carry a brand new set of modular Swedish golf clubs, which is the only thing IKEA doesn’t make. I see these bags practically every day, because they’re what the manchildren who populate my trendy Brooklyn neighborhood use to carry

No, It’s Not Just You: Balenciaga’s Big New Bag Looks Like Fancy Duvet Storage

Look, I know. I know. You’re a nice person and you didn’t do anything to deserve this. I was part of the first generation of kids to grow up on the Internet, which means a lot of things both great and terrible for me as a person, but maybe most of all, it means I have a pretty keen sense for when I’m being trolled, and even a substantial appreciation for those who do it well. Balenciaga designer Demna Gvasalia

Balenciaga Finally Unveils Its Pre-Fall 2017 Bags, Which are Basically All Triangular

Demna Gvasalia never fails to find an unexpected direction to take us in. I didn’t realize I had yet to see Balenciaga’s Pre-Fall 2017 collection until I saw it staring at me as a new addition to the runway section of Vogue UK’s website, but like several other brands—Chloé and Céline among them—have opted to do in recent seasons, Balenciaga has kept this between-seasons line under wraps until it’s time for it to debut in stores. And, as in seasons

Celebs Go Abroad with Bags from Givenchy, Gucci, & Chanel

Cannes arrivals and a London P.Diddy party make for premium handbag viewing The annual celebrity Cannes crawl has begun. Stars who merely exist to walk red carpets in perpetuity all had ample paparazzi coverage at the Nice airport this week, as did everyone who came and went from the afterparty for Sean Combs’ documentary: Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story. Was it the hottest documentary premiere afterparty ever? That’s probably an easy yes—I imagine the majority of them

Love It or Leave It: Your Balenciaga City Bag Can Now Come Pre-Graffiti’d

A bag for those who don’t have the will to acquire paint pens of their own Over the past several years, we’ve noticed a lot of notable people doing something a bit controversial: embellishing designer bags with drawings, paint splatters, graffiti—you name it. Some people (including some of you guys) take exception to what they see as being careless with a very expensive piece of fashion, but others (including me, usually) are pretty into it. After all, at a point

Bye Bye Bye Balenciaga

PARIS, France — This could have been a lame duck collection for Alexander Wang, but that wasn’t the way he approached it at all. “Let’s do something people would expect least,” he told himself. Ruffles, lace, feathers, “things no one associates with me, things I’ve always wanted to venture into, like romanticism, sensuality, overt femininity,” an ebullient Wang declared after his Balenciaga send-off on Friday. He called it his love letter to Paris, a bookend to his signature show last

Balenciaga entices with their Arena Cross Pampille Mini

I never turn to Balenciaga for bucket bags. But that all changed today after I saw the Arena Cross Pampille Mini in Barneys. The black version was on the shelf as well, but there was this gorgeous mint green option that I was coveting. Actually, I snapped a photo – here it is. I started to feel the itch when I laid eyes on the bag. The only thing that held me back was its size. While I appreciate a

Fill in the blank: The Balenciaga Papier Cannage Imprime Totes are….

I’m a noted Balenciaga fangirl and would gladly carry either of the woven, multicolored Balenciaga Papier Cannage Imprime Totes, although the lighter of the two is my favorite. I have a feeling that this is going to be a controversial bag for some of our readers, though, which makes it all the more fun for a rousing game of Fill in the Blank. You guys know how this works by now – have at it in the comments. Buy through

Go bright with Balenciaga

Having spent all of Friday carrying my yellow Kate Spade Essex Scout Crossbody Bag around a series of furniture stores in pursuit of a new bed and mattress, I cannot extoll the virtues of a small, bright bag highly enough. Being hands-free for shopping is as convenient as you might imagine, but the flourish of color that such a bag provides is the real reason I was carrying that purse. If you’d like something a little different than the Kate
