Balenciaga Looking a Little Too Festive For Spring 2011

You all know that I’m a total Balenciaga junkie, but I have to admit, the brand isn’t entirely faultless. After all, there is no such thing as perfection… Behold the new Balenciaga bag from the Spring/Summer 2011 collection…. *drumroll*

My first thought when I saw this bag? I’d thought that it was some sort of Limited Edition bag for Holiday 2010. I mean, the colours just scream Christmas! But after double-, triple- and multiple checks, it was confirmed that it belongs to the Spring/Summer 2011 collection. I’d say that Ghesquiere was thinking of Christmas when he designed this bag, but in this instance, Christmas comes way too late. Besides, it is a serious fashion faux pas to wear anything Christmassy during well, Christmas – and yes, I’m referring to snowmen, reindeer, Santa, or anything Christmas-themed to be adorned on your body i.e. Christmas sweaters that grandma gave you or anything else along those lines.
While there might not be any of the usual suspects mentioned above spotted on this bag, the colour itself is way too festive; you might as well be stuck in an all-year-long Christmas time warp with this bag. If it was released during Christmas or rather, for Christmas and the Holiday season, it would’ve been more justifiable. But then again, with the more structured design (from the texture captured on photo I’m guessing it’s coated linen), it MIGHT work to store bits and bobs from toys if you’re one of Santa’s elves.
