It’s the most wonderful time of the year with Balenciaga, as the French luxury house has officially rolled out its holiday gifting campaign online. That means you will finally be able to get that fancy pair of Balenciaga’s champagne glasses (complete with silver platinum rims), new sneakers and of course, these new-in Hourglass Wallet On Chain bags.
Go straight for this crocodile-embossed leather duo in gold and silver, both paired with tonal hardware to complete that shiny look for the season. Then there’s another in black croc-embossed leather with gold hardware, and a plain leather one for those who prefer a much simpler piece.
The Hourglass Wallet On Chain is no stranger to you, measuring 19 cm wide and 12 cm high, which is pretty standard for most WOCs. The curved base is a signature element of the Hourglass family, as is the oversized B (for Balenciaga, of course) logo.
Each bag opens via the magnetic stud closure to a spacious compartment with 6 card slots and an inner zipped pocket. There’s also a separate patch pocket should you require extra space, rounding it up as a pretty solid piece for a quick day out and about.
Priced between SGD1750 and SGD1950 each, they are all currently for sale online. Or you could give the local boutiques a call or swing by to find out more. One more thing, each bag will be sold together with a removable chain (52 cm drop length), so you can opt to carry it as a sling clutch slung over the shoulder for a hands-free look. Which will it be for you?
