The Hourglass is fast becoming one of the hottest styles available at Balenciaga today, with at least 30 different variations in sizes ranging from the Hourglass Chain to the largest Hourglass Top Handle, which stands at a whopping 31 cm by 27 cm. Aside from the distinctive B logo hardware right in front, the most obvious detailing about the Hourglass has got to be its curvilinear base, an eye-catching feature that also allows the bag to sit (or stand, if you prefer) upright at all times.
Miniature handbags have been dominating the fashion world of late, so it comes without surprise that Balenciaga has introduced its very own version known as the Hourglass Mini Top Handle Bag. It comes at a pretty attractive price point (SGD1250) to boot, making it a worthy contender if you’re looking to own your very first Hourglass bag.
Aside from the teeny-tiny top handle, Balenciaga has also added an adjustable leather strap that can be attached easily via the loops hidden beneath the front flap. Of course, some of you might argue that it is a cuter option to hold it as it is, but there are also days when you could do with a crossbody bag and this charming little number would easily do the trick for sure. You can find it over at the Balenciaga boutiques in Marina Bay Sands and Paragon Shopping Centre, so if you need to check it out in person first, you know where to head to pronto.
