The Belt Baguette Bag, by Balenciaga
At the helm of Balenciaga since 2015, Demna Gvasalia has made waves on the global fashion scene with his disruptive creative approach and experimental aesthetic. It's a partnership that has clearly paid off, with the brand now firmly established as a pillar of popular culture and attracting the attention of fashionistas from around the world.
Carefully compiling sophisticated silhouettes with a touch of timeless modernity, Balenciaga manages to strike the perfect balance between luxury and stripped-back style. This apparent simplicity is one of the features of the Belt Baguette leather bag, carried over the shoulder and hailed as a wardrobe essential for the discerning women out there.
With its embossed white-on-white logo, the Belt Baguette bag achieves a rare kind of discreet - almost invisible - luxury. Like an ode to minimalism, its clean lines create a sleek and simple design, cleverly concealing the clasp under a perfectly curved flap. The stripped-down feel is further emphasised by the immaculate monochrome finish. Once again, it's all in the detail, with a leather lizard skin effect and the choice of strap worked in the same way as a belt. With perforations along the entire length, it is held in place by a buckle that's understated yet resolutely on-trend. Think simple, but never simplistic.
