BALENCIAGA CLASSIC CITY BAG IN GRAINED CALFSKIN

I remember the discussion on forums whether we should pick the Classic City Bag in Chevre (goatskin) or Agneau (lambskin). And there were a lot of opinions about this topic, because both of these leathers changes every year. In one year the leather is thicker and in the other year it’s softer. And there were no other choices for the Classic City Bag beyond these two leathers.

But the time has changed now. A few years ago, the Balenciaga Classic City Bag was only available in medium. Then they introduce the mini and the small size followed soon. The leather options have also been expanded – in 2015, Balenciaga releases the Distressed Calfskin version. And today we can proudly announce the Grained Calfskin.

The Design

It was about time!!! Take a closer look at the leather, doesn’t it feel so much different? The Classic City Bag from a few years ago was crafted with little cracks in the leather to enhance the motorcycle inspiration. This vintage-like leather is still available today.

Basically besides the leather switch, the design hasn’t changed at all and that’s good, because iconic elements should never be modified. The buckle hardware on the bottom sides, the front zipper, and the long zip leather tassel are all there. You can still feel the motorcycle touch on this bag. However, the grained calfskin did changes the experience, because it looks smoother and feels less urban. The grained calfskin leather is also durable and scratch-resistant.

BALENCIAGA GRAFFITI BAGS

Other Brands

Balenciaga-Graffiti-Classic-City-Bag-2

A couple years ago, Graffiti wasn’t the chic’est thing in high fashion. And perhaps it was Louis Vuitton that was responsible for starting this trend; remember the Sprouse Graffiti?

The idea of putting graffiti on expensive bags was a bold move, because it wasn’t seen as luxury, but more like street art. Later on, Chanel came up with the graffiti backpack in 2014 and there were mixed opinions about the design. But in the end, it became the hottest trend and more designer brands were adopting this style as the new normal.

The design

Introducing the Balenciaga Graffiti Print. This colorful print has been embellished on the iconic Classic City Bags. It’s now one of the best street-chic accessories of the house.

The graffiti is done in combination of multiple colors and letters in different shape. It’s like street art – very sophisticated but eye-catching. The words painted on the bag are not randomly picked, they have a meaning. For example, the logo Balenciaga in big lettering and the address 40 Rue de Sevres is one of their stores in Paris at Le Bon Marche.

No leather part was left behind; the graffiti print has been painted on the front, on the back and even on the handles. It gives the Classic City Bag a different feel and more urban as opposed to the original version which felt more like motorcycle-chic.

The Classic City Bag

For those that are interested in the Classic City Bag, it’s made in lambskin and it comes with a long leather shoulder strap. The exterior features a front zip pocket while the interior is made with zip pocket, double phone compartment and a framed mirror. The small size is measured 11.7’ x 7.8’ x 3.9’ (W x H x D) inches, priced at $1995 USD, €1550 euro, £1345 GBP, ¥230040 JPY, $16000 HKD.

The medium size is measured 14.8’ x 9.4’ x 5.5’ (W x H x D) inches and is priced at $2150 USD, €1650 euro, £1395 GBP, ¥244080 JPY, $17100 HKD available via Balenciaga boutiques.

Balenciaga Graffiti City Classic S

Other Brands

IMAGE: BALENCIAGA

There’s a good reason why Nicolas Ghesquiere’s iconic design for Balenciaga has withstood the test of time. The Classic City is as iconic a bag as it gets, and amongst fans of the Parisian label this is a must-have in their bag collection. Thanks to the bag’s easy-to-use top zip closure, removable shoulder strap and that framed leather mirror that we use for emergency situations (guilty as charged), it is heartening to know that even under the current rein of Demma Gvasalia, the bag is still around. Going a step further and given Demna’s eclectic twist, he is now showing us what happens when he gets creative with magic markers.

Look hard enough though, and you’ll find that there’s more to it than just a random graffiti print. Aside from the huge hand-scrawled ‘Balenciaga’ in blue, there’s also the Parisian boutique’s address (in case you ever needed to know where it is), along with the words ‘City S’ (in case you need to know the bag’s name and size). Turn it around and you’ll find the web address, amongst words like ‘leather bag’ and ‘city’.

Available in the same lambskin exterior and brass hardware finishings that we have grown to love over the years, you’ll find the Graffiti Classic City S over at our local boutiques (one was spotted over at Marina Bay Sands) where it retails for SGD2800. Not exactly cheap, but still better than pre-ordering online via Balenciaga where it costs USD2055 (before shipping) and be delivered only after 31 August. In other words, brick-and-mortar 1, online 0.

Balenciaga F/W17 Triangle Duffle

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 SOFT LE DIX BAG

Other Brands

Balenciaga-Soft-Le-Dix-Tote-Bag

It’s been a while since we’ve seen the Balenciaga Le Dix Bag. This collection was created by Alexander Wang and it was the first-time that the house expanded their bag line beyond the popular motorcycle-inspired handbags. The Le Dix’s were made to be ladylike but chic and minimal. And for this new season, Balenciaga updated their Le Dix Bags with a softer side.

Original Balenciaga Le Dix Bag Side

The previous Le Dix Bags were all crafted with sharp points and straight lines. The shape was tight but beautiful. The new Soft Le Dix Bags are made with looser leathers, curvy shapes and roomier interior. The style remains the same, which is minimal and ladylike. The Le Dix Bags are made in single colors, chic luggage tag and above all, super-thin handles. The handles are curved and connected with a piece of golden hardware to the bag. The center is also refined with golden plate hardware.

This is the softer version of the Le Dix Bag and it also comes with a shoulder strap in case you want to shoulder carry or cross body. It’s made from calfskin, which is a durable and strong leather.

In the interior, you will find two large compartments to store all your office essentials. There is also an internal zipped pocket and slot pockets for your important necessities. Measuring 10’ x 13’ x 4.5’ (H x W x D) inches, priced at $2225 USD, €1545 euro, $18200 HKD, ¥191200 JPY, $3505 AUD via MyTheresa.
