Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2012

Balenciaga’s seasonal pieces for Spring/Summer 2012 have taken the minimalist route. Perhaps this is in line with their style evolution: more clean lines, which then resonates with their total discontinuation of the giant studded hardware (which I still think is more stylish) in favour of smaller hardware. 

First up, I really am not such a fan at all of this new rather structured-looking convertible hobo/tote bag. The shoulder strap isn’t detachable, which would make it rather awkward when carrying it as a tote. And since the short handles on the bag aren’t collapsible, it would be rather uncomfortable and not to mention, rather cumbersome when slinging it on the shoulder. In short, it isn’t too practical.

This sling bag with the side opening is rather unique, and in my opinion, could also work for the guy.

Now this, I quite like. Perfect for the office, or even as a document bag. I don’t know about you, but it sort of reminds me of the Celine Luggage Tote — the older one with the flap pocket instead of the one with the zipper… What do you think?

Not a fan of red at all, but somehow it looks so much better in red than black don’t you think?

Also from the same range, I’m loving this sling bag! And the purple is gorgeous!

But my most favourite of all from the range — The Clutch! The Red clasp is attention grabbing and certainly makes the all-white clutch pop!

Now which is YOUR favourite?
