We have been waiting to share these photos with you for weeks! BALMAIN bags will launch on Net-a-porter.com on Monday, October 19th but we have the exclusive photos now so you can choose what you want and buy the minute they appear on the site! My faves are the Mat quilted bag and Leo embellished bag above. If you look closely– the Mat quilting is not symmetrical, giving the classic quilt pattern a modern twist and at $1,915 it’s not that unreasonable (though not cheap either). I have to admit I was expecting 5 figure bags considering the cost of Balmain RTW but the bag prices (for the most part) are acceptable. The suede punk rock studded bag below left is the star of the collection at a whooping $3,925 but the workmanship is amazing! I’m not usually a fan of multi hued studs but this one is strategically designed and feels very haute couture, detailing that Decarnin is known for. The original leather bag (white) has to be seen in person to be appreciated, the whimsical fringes add fun and pizazz to the simple shoulder bag.
BALMAIN Bags at Net-a-porter.com on Monday morning! Happy weekend, all! I’m still home in Asia and having a blast. Lots of new photos to share with you soon!
