Balenciaga offers a black grained-leather iteration of the coveted Hourglass bag which pays tribute to the founder's affinity for sculptural eveningwear.
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.
The Hourglass Bag gets its name from the unique curved shape of the bag.
The Hourglass Bag definitely has the potential to stick around. However the Instagram age, coupled with the more is more mentality of younger consumers, means it’s harder than ever for designers to make a bag that sticks.
While some of Demna Gvasalia’s designs are arguably just safe sellers, geared towards millennials and the logo-lover, the Hourglass Bag can resonate with a wider consumer base.
The sleek, structured design and toned down logo make this bag a solid choice for many, meaning it’s more likely to stand the test of time as trends ebb and flow.
The chic design of this bag is incredibly unique and it’s finished with a flap closure accented with a matte gold B.
