Keen eyed fashionistas would have noticed that Balenciaga is bringing some of its cult favourites (such as the Classic City) back into its leather goods lineup, but Demna Gvasalia is also making sure to introduce new silhouettes that carry his eclectic touch, such as the half-moon shaped Opera Clutch that’s new to the season.
The exterior comes in soft suede leather, finished with the BB logo in aged-gold hardware that was taken and updated from the archives, complete with a circular metallic top handle that’s wrapped with a silk-twill scarf to ensure maximum comfort while sitting in the crook of your arm. Measuring 22 cm at its widest and 11 cm at its highest, the Opera Clutch opens via a snap magnetic fastening to a black leather interior that would fit your absolute essentials. A phone, lipstick, several essential cards (fitted into the card slot within) and maybe a pocket-sized perfume spray – all you really need on a good day (or night) out.
Which is a pity because the Opera Clutch is now sold out online and is not available in local boutiques either. Thankfully not all is lost because here’s a piece of good news. It just arrived on everything-also-have NET-A-PORTER, which has graciously included a styling option on how you can match the bag with all your other favourite Balenciaga RTW and shoes. Just hit the link over here where the bag (USD1720) is now available for you to bring home.
