Leave it to Alexander Wang to rethink and revamp the way a frame bag should look. I love the level of ingenuity and original design at play. The silver bar looks crazy-modern, while Balenciaga’s bicycle-inspired theme continues, with a polished roller chain serving as the top-handle strap.
But if this is meant to be a bag in my real life, I have to say there is ultimately a little something lacking. Comprised of three slim compartments, the double layer of leather is folded over and stays open, but closing with snaps, it looks unfinished and precarious. This is one of those great concept bags. I love the way the frame only partially adorns the bag, leaving an intriguing amount of negative space. I just want to see the leather folds be tighter, neater, and more structured altogether. Finally, the color is not to be ignored. This pale pink is to die for; it’s the perfect spring shade. Balenciaga Frame on NET-A-PORTER for $2,041.
Wear with: Set off the light hue with Victoria, Victoria Beckham’s loose and lovely black playsuit. On My Theresa for $795.
