There is nothing worse than pulling out your most treasured exotic-skin bag to find it dry, cracked, or peeling – or worse yet, all three. A very wise woman once told me that our designer bags are like fine cars: they need tuning regularly.
Just about three weeks left to enter to win this cotton candy-hued Balenciaga Tube bag and $1,000 Kirna Zabete gift certificate!
It’s all about extremes. When it comes to Balenciaga’s most recent totes, I wasn’t into their chunky, giant chain straps, so instead I’m slowly falling for the flipside: this leaner, meaner shopper tote with razor-thin straps.
Start the week off right by entering to win a cotton candy-hued Balenciaga Tube bag – and a $1,000 Kirna Zabete gift certificate to help you with your summer wardrobe!

I love the minimalist aesthetic Alex Wang brought to Balenciaga. He knows that just because you’re spending top dollar doesn’t mean you need extra bells and whistles. The original Le Dix had a flap that lent the bag a briefcase look. By taking that away, he’s uncovered a ladylike style that is somehow both understated and demanding of attention.
Remember when we all gasped at Lupita N’yongo’s stunning Golden Globes’ gown (and pretty much every other time she appeared anywhere)? The woman behind that look – as well as those of Michelle Dockery – is Micaela Erlanger. She’s the stylist to the stars – and the best-dressed ones at that!
Sometimes the perfect handle is all it takes to make a simple tote feel special. It’s the power of a detail, the potency of one great touch. And speaking of touches, it’s looking like Alexander Wang still has one with some magic to it.
