Balenciaga Blanket Bracelet

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: BALENCIAGA

Seen the blanket bags? Take a look at them again, but focus on the top right corner this time around and you’d notice that all items from the Blanket series come with that lambskin band which bears the embossed Balenciaga logo. Now imagine them as bracelets and you’ve pretty much got the Blanket Bracelet.

The perfect addition to the Blanket series, they are longer, thicker and wider, which makes for a pretty solid wrist accessory. The ends of the bracelet are finished in gold metallic hardware that ‘snap’ together, all due to the wonders of the magnetic clasp that keeps it secure when you need it.

Available in a variety colours, they come in 2 sizes, Small and Medium. In Singapore, 3 colours (Black, Olive and Orange) are currently retailing at their Paragon boutique for SGD420 a pop. Online, you’ll find the bracelet over on Balenciaga for USD310 and at NET-A-PORTER for USD285, but if you were to factor in shipping and taxes, you’ll probably find that getting this locally would be the best option.

Extra Odd Extra-Large Bags from Balenciaga

Categories:Other Brands

balenciaga-extra-large

When Balenciaga came out with the Bazar Shopper’s Tote, it was a highly discussed headliner. It was the glammed up version of an otherwise plastic bag you can buy off the streets of Asia.

But runway after runway, season after season, in every capsule collection, more and more of these everyday/household plastic bags in full leather form make its way to market, and Balenciaga stores.

It’s one of those love-it-or-leave-it designs that would either make you roll your eyes, or salivate with fervor. And because life is busy enough, and curiousity can take us from one handbag to another. Let’s try to have some form of a guide with what we’ve seen so far.

Bazar Shopper Extra-Largebalenciaga-bazar-shopper-extra-large-1

This bag’s been available in plastic form all over Asia. These are sold on the streets, folded neatly, with a wide zipper and a shoulder handle strap. They come in a variety of prints, but most commonly in checkered or stripes.

shopper-tote

Thankfully Balenciaga offers varying sizes on this bag aside from the Extra Large sized ones. There are also plain colored options if the stripes put you off.  It’s definitely an interesting bag. And something that would strike me odd. Little did we know that this is just the beginning pointing us where Balenciaga wants to go, and where they’re going to take us.balenciaga-bazar-shopper-extra-large-2

These extra large Bazar Shopper is definitely a stand out, statement bag. Not just for the size, but for the whole idea of it. Why buy thousands of dollars for a bag that can be bought for a dollar? And why would handbag lovers or fashionistas want to buy one and wear one at all?

Arena Extra Large Shopper Tote

When I first saw this bag, I thought it was great that it had a top handle for the arms, and an extra set of longer handles for the shoulders. But there was something about the blue leather that felt too familiar.

ikea

IKEA has something like this! And it seems that’s where the idea came from altogether. Yet another plastic bag that costs like nothing.

And now, Balenciaga has decided to push a new bag from the same strand of inspiration. And this time, it’s the linen department.

balenciaga-blanket-extra-large-square-bag-2

The Blanket bag looks exactly what a comforter set would look like. And though there are plain leather variations of this bag and varying sizes, the flagship design is the bedroom prints, cliché in beddings. You’ve seen these before. And it strikes as odd to be a fashion statement.blanket

Balenciaga may have gotten into a brand rut with their motorcycle jacket themed bags they’ve toted around forever. Is it worth it to dish out these utilitarian luxury themed bags? Perhaps. We haven’t heard Balenciaga make waves as much as it has these past few seasons. The realy question is, would you buy one for actual use?

Balenciaga Blanket Square XL Tote

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: BALENCIAGA

If you thought the last bag Balenciaga did was crazy, wait till you see this. From Demna Gvasalia’s Spring-Summer 2017 collection for Balenciaga, it’s inspired by another humble carrier, vintage blanket/comforter bags that I used to remember seeing stacked on top of my Grandmother’s wooden cupboard when I was but a wee lad.

Completely repurposed as fashion’s next hit bag, Balenciaga’s version stays true to the original. Large floral print, check. Name of the brand printed on the angled label on the top right hand corner of the bag, check. Even the handles are the same, except for the fact that they are now hand-twisted nappa as opposed to woven cotton. It even opens like a traditional blanket carrier, which opens suitcase-style as you unzip the bag from end to end.

Measuring some 56 cm by 47 cm, it’s a bag that you’ll either revel in its irony with, or just be completely repulsed and wonder why such a humble carrier would need elevation in the first place. But that’s precisely the point of fashion, to provoke a reaction, be it good or bad, from us. Because honestly if everything is same-same, then we might just as well have one fashion house for everyone out there in the world, right?

Priced at USD3975 and available online now via Balenciaga in orangey-red (shown above) or in a beige/blue combination, Balenciaga Singapore also has tiny full coloured variations (known as the Blanket Square) that come with a long shoulder sling. Besides the bags, you’ll also find clutches (the same thing, but flattened with a zip that runs along the top) and I think in due time, long and compact wallets like they did with the Bazar collection.
