I haven’t had the pleasure of seeing this actual style in person yet, it’s exclusively available at MyTheresa and just not sold here in Seattle. (Barney’s and Nordstrom’s carry a great selection, just not this bag in particular). Although I’m sure it’s as fantastic as every other creation from the Balenciaga workshop.
The details that first caught my attention were the unique to Balenciaga crescent design and swoop around whipstitch detailing technique along the arc. And I don’t know about you guys, maybe it’s just my tummy doing the talking here, but I just can’t help think the design looks quite similar to a pastry. Yum!
The bag is only available in this pink version with all the traditional Balenciaga hardware that we Balenciga addicts have come to love. Even though it’s not pictured above, the bag comes with a very thin detachable leather strap. I really don’t like how it looks with the strap, but hey it’s removable so that’s a huge plus. I’m sure if this was in my closet I would wear it somedays with and somedays without but would enjoy it more as a handheld.
