Gender Bender #23


Balenciaga Giant Covered Work Bag

To be honest, I only posted this bag here because I like the new detailing in the fall winter 2008 range of Balenciaga Bags. The Work is not really the appropriate size for guys. But the weekender, in the 'giant' range is a good size to pass off as a bag for men. Nevertheless, my purpose here is to showcase the new 'brogue-like' detailing decorating the edges of the leather panels of the fall winter bags! I love it. It adds a significant amount of classic vintage feel to the bag while retaining the signature design of the bags. I like it more too becos it comes in a soft grey colour as well. Absolutely beautiful and elegant.:-)

I must check out if they make these in weekender sizes:-) Definitely a bag that has made an impression on my 'bag radar':-P

It looks way to much like my friend Zarahs bags. She has something like 13 Balenciaga bags in different shapes and sizes. This one is way to girly, but as you said, the detailing is great...

yeah, the brogue like detailing is interesting. This one is too handbag:-P Maybe a bigger size version will work better.

Weekender is definitely a good size for most men but "work" is not really too small for someone who has a petite frame (like me.)

It's all about proportion in fashion. :-) If you can play proportion to your advantage...it's a winner with anything you wear or carry:-) Go for it. Work is not a bag any guy can carry.:-)
