I have decided. My next designer bag will be the Balenciaga RH Weekender. I don’t care how I do it, but I will get it… The only thing is, I have not decided on the colour yet, and right now I am torn between (from top down) Praline, Automne and Anthracite.
Currently in Singapore the Balenciaga boutique (at Hilton Shopping Gallery) retails them for SGD2769 each, which in my opinion is way too much to pay considering that they are way cheaper overseas. Also they’ve only got Anthracite (Kevin of MMB has one), Charbon (a very dark Brown) and Black in stock at the moment, which also means I won’t have much of a choice even if I want to get it locally.
Measuring 50 cm by 39 cm, there are 2 versions of the weekender (one for girls and one for guys), but according to my source (a reader who owns at least 50 Balenciaga bags and SLGs at last count), it does not really matter as there are only slight differences between the 2. The ladies version comes with the additional mirror and a slightly shorter drop, whereas the version for guys comes without and has a slightly longer drop.
