Katie Holmes sure looked like she was feeling a bit chilly last Sunday! Accompanied by her hubby (Tom Cruise) and daughter (Suri), the 32 year old actress was enjoying a night out in New York City. Her look for the evening was casual, yet chic. I love her extra-long peacoat and simple suede boots, both in black. What caught my eye the most, however, was the Balenciaga Matelasse Handbag hooked on her arm! Interestingly, she chose this chocolate brown piece to compliment her black/gray outfit. Nice!
A lesser known style from the beloved designer, the Balenciaga Matelasse Handbag has actually been hanging around for a few years now. In fact, the style has long been coveted by Hollywood starlets and I can certainly see why! This lovely satchel features the same signature hardware and extra-long tassels that Balenciaga fans crave. However, the style is more boxy than the classic styles and works best when held in hand or in the crook of your elbow. It features a gorgeous quilting pattern, which somewhat reminds me of Chanel. There is no doubting how beautiful this handbag is! It is definitely something worth taking a second look at and, of course, adding to your Balenciaga collection! The style came in more than one size too, so there is some flexibility there for those gals that prefer larger or smaller handbags.
