Must Have: Balenciaga Handbags


With Christmas looming around the corner we’re sure that you are overwhelmed with options for gifts, especially when it comes to ‘must-have’ investments or ‘wardrobe essentials.’ It’s no secret that trends are fleeting, so whilst you enjoy the glitz and glamour of the festive season, we also gently suggest you consider some truly classic pieces that will stand the test of time. Either for yourself or a loved one, Balenciaga offer iconic examples of timeless wardrobe investments.

So, what exactly makes a classic handbag? In our opinion: style, practicality, and craftsmanship. Needless to say the colour is of immeasurable importance. Whether you opt for bold and bright or understated and demure, one block colour is essential. It must also serve a purpose that it can fulfil time and time again. Eveningwear or daywear, your classic bag must be fitting throughout the seasons. Finally, the craftsmanship. Striking silhouettes, carefully sourced materials and stylish designs are imperative for any classic handbag.

With Balenciaga, you are guaranteed to have all three boxes confidently ticked. The City and Classic series of handbags are world renowned for their luxurious, premium finishes. From the textured gold hardware, to the eye-catching studs, to the leather details – the biker style of a Balenciaga handbag is instantly recognisable. Fashioned in a style that crosses the boundaries between menswear and womenswear, a Balenciaga handbag can be taken with you to a plethora of social situations. From cocktail parties to shopping trips to concerts – Balenciaga can go with you anywhere.
