If you've been eagerly anticipating the first glimpse of Alexander Wang's handbags for Balenciaga, behold! For the collection, Le Dix, Wang maintains reverence for Balenciaga's history while adding his definition of modern luxury. "It was only natural that this heritage also be translated into a bag for this first collection," he said in an interview with CR. Le Dix alludes to the house's original street address and the name of Balenciaga's first scent. But as far as aesthetics go, the bags nod more to Wang's trademark streetwear minimalism, with a satchel shape that's held strong since Proenza Schouler released their PS1 bag. If anything, it's a real departure from Balenciaga's former "It" bag, the motorcycle one that dangled on the arm of every celebrity for a decade. Each silhouette in the new range comes in forest green, pale gray and, black, and they range from $995 for the pochette to $2,250 for the largest size, reports Fashionlogie, where you can see more.
