The thing about Balenciaga’s Ville handbag is that comparisons will definitely be made to Hermès’ Bolide and Louis Vuitton’s Alma, evident in the similarities between the double top handles right down to the bag’s shape and silhouette. But what sets Balenciaga apart are its avant-garde prints and unique tweaks which its counterparts will never ever do. Like dressing the smooth leather body up in a multi-coloured rainbow graphic exterior for example, perhaps Demna Gvasalia’s tribute to Pride?
It’s bold, it’s bright, it’s definitely cute, measuring 19 cm at its widest and 15 cm high, making for a great crossbody or over-the-shoulder piece thanks to the adjustable (and removable) rainbow leather strap. It’s part of the brand’s Fall-Winter 2019 collection, but can now be pre-ordered for SGD2740 with deliveries slated to happen from July 2019.
