Notes

Most bags are either classic in style or wildly quirky.
The new Balenciaga Hourglass is the rare one that nails both.
The Hourglass is admittedly reminiscent of more vintage styles. It’s unexpected but the end result is lovely.
Perhaps the most unusual aspect of the bag is its curved, crescent-shaped base, a reference to Cristobal Balenciaga’s signature Basque-waist coats.
Alongside the bag’s other geometric details (its trapezoid shape and the distinctive B-shaped buckle), the overall effect is one that is both classic yet sharply contemporary.
The Hourglass can be worn as is or cross-body style via a detachable strap. It’s a tough act to balance between classic styles and contemporary design.
