Since its debut in 2001 Balenciaga’s motorcycle collection was an instant hit amongst Bagista’s of all backgrounds. The variation of colored leathers, textures, tassels, hardware, and prints has popularized the collection quite strongly since its introduction. I’m one of those Bal-addicts who loves the Italian Houses edgy and discrete collection, I’ve pretty much given a nod of approval to everything they’ve revived and released.
Balenciaga presents a truly fierce edition this season; greet the Padlock All Time Tote. It’s Balenciaga’s modern version of the large, lady like structured handbags that are very much trending at the moment. Perfect for your retro-feminine style or as a bold statement to your office wear, this one will definitely stand out amongst the crowd.
The bags design isn’t too recognizable but a simple logo stamp at the upper center of this tote serves as Balenciaga confirmation. There are no tassels, smooshy leather, or recognizable studs on this tote, instead, a fresh padlock, extra smooth leather, and tubular top handles. These definite changes from your typical Balenciaga raises long term wear questions, can you get the same or more use out of this tote compared to a classic Motorcycle bag?
