The Material Boy #167




Balenciaga Leather Zip Bag

This is one smart looking leather soft briefcase for all the corporate types that want to look stylish in and out of the boardroom. It's well proportioned, in black (which is the power suit colour to have a professional look!) and features the signature Balenciaga metal studs that adds a punk attitude to the otherwise serious looking bag:-) I also like the embossed looking stripe design that runs down the front side of the bag. Subtle but interesting.

If I wear a suit to work each day, I can see this working well in the office and then taking it out for play as well. Beautiful! I bet the leather will be as soft as the leather used in the motorcycle range of bags. A wonderful masculine man bag with an edge:-)

Update:
This bag is available in Club 21 Mens, Four Seasons Hotel for SGD $1799. One piece only! Hurry!

It looks very dull to me. I wouldn't have known it's Balenciaga if you didn't tell me.

looks nice. I love that it doesn't look balenciaga, and that the handles are kinda long. very discreet.

ha ha did the damage and bought the bag in Club21-Bangkok over the weekend.

The design actually comes in a few variations. There is the all leather version (posted on this blog) and there is another where the body of the bag is made of wool (navy blue, grey) and the surrounding is in leather. I chose the one in blue. Fantastic!!!
