The Material Boy #27
Balenciaga Leather/Linen Duffle Bag
I just love this Balenciaga Leather/Linen Duffle Bag. A bit of an old english explorer charm and yet chic and practical to carry around. Lovely chocolate brown leather mixed with off-white linen fabric. The bag has a slouchy shape, I guess it is reminiscent of the Balenciaga courier bags. Will conform to your body when you sling in across the shoulders. And if slinging across the body is not your thing, you can always carry this bag stylishly on your hands or as a hobo. Love the thick handles which seems so comfortable to grip. A silver 'B' Logo is stamped on the right corner of the bag so the fashion savvy will know you are carrying Balenciaga:-P
Club 21 Mens stocks this bag now! An ingenious design allows three ways to carry the bag. By soft leather handles for hand carry, a short leather strap for use as a hobo bag, and a shoulder sling strap. Made of linen and leather with a metallic silver 'B' logo printed on one corner. Only 2 pieces in Singapore. Pricey for a bag not in full leather.
Retail price: SGD $2339. Where to buy: Club 21 Men's at Four Seasons Hotel
