My Bag Collection #25
Balenciaga 'The Courier' Leather and Linen Bag (SOLD)
Slouchy bags are usually not my cup of tea. This Balenciaga 'The Courier' Bag fails miserably in shelf appeal but when you actually sling it over your body, it takes on a whole new persona, one that looks fabulous and appealing. The slouchy shape conforms to your body and drapes nicely under the weight of your contents. The leather lariats injects movement as you 'swing' your way across town, you feel nonchalant and as if you are strutting down fiercely on the runway.
Made from distressed goat skin and black linen, this huge bag can bag a few days worth of clothing plus a few pairs of shoes. Perfect as a weekend bag or even a day to day sling bag. Works great for summer looks, especially sandals.
Retail price: Approx. SGD 1669. Where to buy: Club 21 Mens at Four Seasons Hotel
